Mobile Hairdresser Insurance

Insurance that’s as flexible as you are, so running your business is slick and easy.

You’re likely to have a lot of different clients as a mobile hairdresser. From elderly people who are unable to get to a salon, to people who appreciate the convenience of a hairdresser coming to them, as well as those preparing for special occasions. One thing they all expect is a professional service and we provide tailored mobile hairdresser insurance to make sure you’re always covered.

Every skilled professional can sometimes make mistakes. Accidents can happen such as snipping a client’s ear or burning them with hot styling tools. As you’re working in other people’s homes you could also cause damage to their property, like dropping chemicals onto their carpet, and be left with a big bill. Public liability insurance for mobile hairdressers covers you if one of your clients or a member of the public sues you for injury or damage. This element of your mobile hairdressing insurance package could also cover you for compensation payments and any legal fees.

Likewise, if you’re providing a specific treatment and this causes injury to your clients, you’ll need treatment cover. We cover a wide range of treatments as standard, some of which you can see below. If you do need something specific, speak to our team and we can advise you on what’s available.

As a mobile hairdresser you may also need goods in transit cover to protect your valuable equipment and any stock you carry against damage. If you’re unsure of what cover you need, or at which level, our team can discuss this with you. If you also use one vehicle mainly for work, you could consider commercial vehicle insurance.
