What Type of Beautician Insurance do you Need?

Whether you’re freelance, self-employed, or run a mobile business, we can arrange a tailored beautician insurance policy to suit your specific requirements. If you prefer to purchase your salon insurance online, we also have an online platform available. Our beauticians insurance cover can include:

Employers liability insurance

Employers liability insurance may be a legal requirement if you employ staff for your beauty business, whether on a casual, temporary or permanent basis. 

Property Damage

The equipment necessary to run your beauticians or beauty business do not come cheaply. By getting the right insurance, you're covered should your tools become damaged or are stolen.

Product liability insurance

If your client suffers an allergic reaction from one of your treatments or a product you have sold, product liability cover will provide protection in the event of a claim.

Public liability insurance including treatment liability

Our beauty insurance policy typically covers technicians with a minimum of two years’ experience, unless supervised. We can only arrange cover for the treatments you’re qualified to carry out.

Regardless of your level of skill and expertise, accidents do happen. A misjudged temperature setting on hot wax could leave your client with a nasty burn, while equipment left on the floor could cause somebody to trip and hurt themselves.

For these reasons and many more, having beauty public liability insurance cover is a vital part of your insurance. It protects you should a client, member of the public, or supplier suffer illness or injury, or their property become damaged - as a result of your negligence.

Beautician Insurance FAQs

Say a client slips on a freshly mopped floor – you’ll need public liability to cover any claims they make against you. What if your client has a reaction to one of your treatments or a product you use? You would need product liability to protect you. Imagine if your spray tanning machine or wax pot suddenly stop working, you would need tools and equipment cover  to pay for the cost of replacements.

Yes, most insurers will require this level of experience. Some insurers may consider less experienced beauticians depending upon qualifications held. Please speak with one of our advisors to discuss further.

As long as you have the required qualifications and accreditations to carry out your treatments, our insurers will be happy to offer you a quotation. We won't ask to see a copy of them, but you may be asked to provide them in the event of a claim.

Yes. For the protection of your clients and your own reputation, you need suitable beauty business insurance in case something goes wrong.

Beauty therapists often have additional qualifications to be able to provide more advanced treatments. The appropriate beauty therapist insurance cover will provide protection for those treatments. Beauticians insurance cover is usually for most standard treatments.

The main types of insurance are public and products liability, however each business is different so it’s worth discussing your needs with an insurance broker to make sure you don’t have cover that isn’t needed, and on the other hand you aren’t missing out on vital protection for your business.
