We can cover:
All policies include full public liability and treatment risk insurance.
Freelance hairdressing insurance provides a simple cost effective solution for self-employed hair technicians. Based on core public liability insurance, it also includes cover against claims for treatment risk as standard, which includes claims for use of hair products and dyes.
Public liability insurance for hairdressers provides indemnity for compensation claims and expenses from members of the public as a result of the actions of you or your business. For example, a client trips over the power lead from your hairdryer and twists their ankle.
Products liability insurance is also included as standard, this is particularly useful if you sell or giveaway any hair products. Should someone suffer injury as a result of using the product they could seek financial compensation for you, which is where products liability cover comes in.
In addition to liability protection you can also include insurance cover for your business equipment including any stock or materials.

Hair treatment risk cover provides protection against compensation claims for injury or illness as a result of a hair treatment or application you have applied.
As a trained hair technician you have a duty of care to provide safe treatment to your clients. However, accidents can happen, which is why treatment risk is essential for hairdressing professionals.
The simple answer is yes. When you rent a chair you are self-employed, most salon policies will exclude cover for self-employed stylists as they are simply trading separately from the salon location.
Fortunately, cover for a public liability for a self-employed hair stylist is relatively inexpensive and it will also allow you the freedom to take on any work away from the salon (for example at a clients home address) as required.
