Hairdressers Insurance

Insurance That’s Styled and Straightforward, so you can Focus on Running Your Business

Hairdressing businesses come in many different forms, each one with a unique set of circumstances or challenges, so one rigid insurance policy may not work for everyone. This is why we listen, advise, and then style the hairdressers insurance cover that is appropriate for your business.

Let us do the hard work of searching for the cover you require, so you don’t have to. Also, unlike some direct insurers or online comparison sites that may only be able to offer standard features, we have access to a range of flexible hairdressing policies from various leading UK insurers and specialist providers that can be styled to your needs. If you prefer to purchase your salon insurance online, we also have an online platform available

By having the essential insurance in place such as public liability insurance for hairdressers, you can focus on the smooth running of your business and keeping your customers looking great, safe in the knowledge you are protected in the event of an accident or incident.

We're passionate about championing the high street and helping hairdressers like Hairworks in Normanton, Yorkshire (pictured above). So whether you own your own salon, rent a chair, run a mobile hairdressing business, work from home, have a number of employees, or work for yourself, speak to us to see how we can help you get comprehensive hairdressing insurance tailored to your business.

Did you know that smei can arrange specialist nail technician insurance as well as general beauty insurance, and mobile hairdresser insurance?
