What type of hairdressing insurance do I need?
Although not essential, public liability insurance will be a key cover for many hairdressers – it’s built to cover you for injuries and property damage, if your client makes a claim.
Alongside this important cover, you may want to add insurance for things like your essential business equipment, tools and stock. And if you employ anyone (including contractors, temporary staff or apprentices), employers’ liability cover is usually a legal requirement.
