Specialist Business Insurance for Barbers in One Simple Solution

The barbering industry has boomed in recent years. Facial hair and beards are back in fashion and men are moving away from unisex hairdressers to embrace traditional barber shops (1)(2).

Unlike a lot of hairdressers, barbers typically perform different services including beard and moustache trimming or reshaping hot towel facials, and cut-throat shaving. Insurance is often the last thing on your mind when it comes to running a business. To make it easy for you, we offer flexible insurance which is tailored to your unique needs – so you can concentrate on your business knowing you are appropriately protected for the services you provide.

Other Categories of Business Insurance for Barbers

Accidents can and do happen regardless of your experience or level of skill. Public liability insurance helps protect you and your business against unexpected accidents involving clients, members of the public, or suppliers.

Although some accidents can be avoided not everything in business is predictable. Product and treatment cover may protect you if a client has an allergic reaction or a treatment goes wrong. For unexpected incidents such as a loss of access to running water, additional cover is available which will protect you in the event of business interruption.

The equipment you use is essential to the running of your barber shop, without it you could lose out on income. Adequate cover against theft, fire, flood or damage will ensure that you don’t have to spend a fortune replacing your equipment and products.

Barbers Public Liability Insurance

As a barber, dealing with sharp objects on a daily basis is the norm but unfortunately accidents can happen. A stumble or slip could result in a cut neck or a clipped ear but if the correct cover is not in place, such accidents could be damaging to your business.

This is why we make public liability insurance a key element of your barber insurance policy. If a client, member of the public, or a supplier is injured, or their property is damaged, as a result of your business then you will be protected.
