Why Insurance is Important for Tanning Salons

There are a few key covers your tanning salon insurance and spray tan insurance should include.

Spray Tan Liability Insurance

There are a couple of different types of liability insurance to consider.

Employers liability is a legal requirement if you have employees. It covers you if your staff are injured while working for you.

Public liability insurance isn’t a legal requirement, but if a member of the public is injured in your salon and seeks compensation, this provides protection.

Business Interruption Cover

This type of cover can be a lifeline for your business. If there’s a major event which means you can’t run your business as normal, for instance a flood may mean that you can’t open the salon, then this cover protects you from income loss and pays for certain expenses until you’re able to run your business as normal again.

Treatment Risk Insurance

One of the biggest risks when dealing with beauty products and skin is an allergic reaction. Sometimes you can do everything right and your customer may still experience some unexpected effects. If that’s the case and the customer decides to seek compensation, treatment risk cover will pay compensation costs.

Frequently asked questions

The type of cover you need depends on the type of hairdresser you are. For example, all hairdressers need to have public liability insurance to cover their legal liabilities in the case of damage or injury to clients. Salon owners will need business interruption cover to ensure they're protected if, for example, fire prevents the business operating. Mobile hairdressers may need goods in transit cover to protect business equipment and stock against damage while in transit between customers. If you're unsure of the type or level of cover you'll need, our team will be able to help guide you. The cost of your policy depends on your needs. Our policies are flexible and can adapt to fit your requirements. So whether you're a salon owner, freelancer, or are a mobile hairdresser, we will search for the cover you require and present you with the choices available. For example, multiple options may be available from our panel of insurers - each with differing features and prices.

No matter how skilled and experienced you are, accidents sometimes happen. A momentary lapse in concentration could result in an accidental snip on your client's ear, or a burn caused by hair straighteners. If you drop chemicals onto your client's expensive carpet, you could be left facing an expensive bill for replacement. Public liability insurance for mobile hairdressers provides cover if a client or member of the public sues you for injury or damage. This key element of your insurance could cover you for the compensation payment and any associated legal fees. Yes. As a mobile hairdresser, your clients are likely to vary greatly, from busy executives that are time-poor and love the convenience of a hairdresser coming to them, to the elderly who are unable to travel, or a bride preparing for her big day. However, they all have one thing in common: they expect a professional job and maybe a little pampering too. We provide Mobile Hairdresser specific insurance to make sure your business is covered.
