Table of Contents

Becoming a professional hairstylist requires dedication to learning your trade. First, you must complete a training program that dives into the science of hair coloring, cutting, shampooing and styling to become licensed. During your time training, you should have student hairstylist insurance. And once you’ve completed your program, you’ll need professional hairstylist insurance to protect you in the event things go wrong.

Discover four unique benefits of BBI’s hairstylist insurance below.

General and Professional Liability Coverage

What’s the difference between general and professional liability? And, do you need both?

Yes, hairstylists need both. General and professional liability insurance together provide the in-depth coverage you need to protect your business.

A general liability insurance policy covers you in the event that a third party sues you for bodily injury, damage to property, and advertising injury. The policy typically covers legal fees and costs associated with settlements.

A professional liability insurance policy covers unique lawsuits hairstylists may face. These may include claims of mistakes while performing your work or negligent services.

Branding Badge

When you purchase a policy through BBI, you have access to a unique tool hairstylists can use to boost their credibility– our online insurance badge. Inserting a BBI Insurance badge on your website signals to customers you are serious about the work you do.

Having a reputable company backing your work provides peace of mind to customers. They know if things go wrong, you have taken the initiative to cover yourself with insurance.
