Business insurance for hairdressing businesses
If you’re running a hairdressing business, then investing in the right insurance is a must.
Here at Digital Risks, we provide tailored cover to all types of hairdresser, including mobile visits, at home services and self-employed professionals.
Working in a people and service-focused industry means your top priority should be public liability cover, ensuring you’re protected in the event of any personal injury or property damage claims made against you.
If you employ people in your business then you'll need employers liability cover by law. You should also consider contents cover to protect all the hairdressing tools and equipment you rely on for your business success.
Whatever your requirements, we’ll have you covered in a few clicks.

What hairdressing insurance do I need?
Building your cover
Running a hairdressing business involves regular contact with clients and that means you’re exposed to a certain element of risk. If you or one of your employees accidentally causes injury or property damage in the course of your work you could face legal claims and demands for compensation, even if you believe you weren’t at fault.
For example, a client could claim they were injured as a result of your services. If that happens, the bill for legal and compensation costs could run into the thousands, or more. So it makes sense to have tailored insurance in place.
Cover for your business essentials
You may also want to cover all the physical equipment you use to run your business, as well as any specialist equipment and portable tools (including things like laptops and smartphones).
For this you’ll need contents and portable equipment insurance insurance.
Finally, if you employ staff then employers liability cover is a legal requirement.

James, J. Black Photography
Flexible. simple, easy, immediate. As a busy freelancer I need flexibility to potentially change the policy month by month - very handy and a feature I didn't find with other providers.

Excellent service, and really lovely people. Completely understanding of small or start up businesses, and a willingness/ability to be flexible. I'm very happy.
Lorna, Magic Penny Gifts
A super slick interface and all around great experience. Thumbs up Digital Risks! Having spoken to a number of "large" insurers, the pricing I received from Digital Risks was much more competitively priced for "like for like" cover. Highly recommended.
