Insurance for hairdressers on the move

Tailored insurance for mobile hairdressers means that you can get on with what you do best, knowing that you’re protected if something goes wrong.

Starting off with public liability insurance, which can cover compensation costs if your business is held responsible for injury or damage, build the mobile hairdressers’ insurance policy that’s right for you.

What insurance do mobile hairdressers need?

Public liability insurance

Because you’re in close contact with clients and you visit them at home, public liability insurance will probably be central to your mobile hairdresser insurance policy. This cover protects you if a client or another member of the public sues you for injury or damage. For example if you made a burn hole in your client’s carpet with a pair of hair straighteners, or if a chemical caused damage to a client’s scalp. Your public liability policy could cover the legal fees and the compensation payment, which may take into account costs like medical bills and lost income.

Other covers

Other insurance options that you could consider adding to your mobile hairdresser policy include cover for your business equipment, your tools, and your stock. And if you employ anyone (including contractors, temporary staff or apprentices), you’re probably legally required to have employers’ liability insurance.
