You are a professional at styling and cutting hair, but you probably don’t have the same expertise when it comes to a liability policy.

Hair Styling Liability Insurance

Everybody needs a haircut once in a while, and as a hair stylist, you have the skills to help your clients look their best. But constantly working with sharp tools and people means that accidents can happen at any time, even to the best hair stylists.

Insurance for Hair Stylists

BBI is the Coverage you need

Going through hair school gave you the expertise you need to cut and style hair. People come to you because they are convinced you are the best person for them. Even with all the training you’ve received, however, it can’t prepare you for everything that could happen.

What if a client moved while you were cutting their hair and you accidentally cut them with scissors? This situation is not beyond the realm of possibility, and you might be surprised to learn that you could be held liable for the medical expenses and other costs of that cut.

Which is why you need coverage to help you in your career. Our online Beauty and Bodywork Insurance (BBI) offers comprehensive liability policies for hair professionals and students. This includes hair salon booth rental insurance as well.

Whether you need a policy to protect your hair-styling business or to insure your hair supplies and equipment, BBI offers the coverage you need at a price you can afford.

Common Questions

As a hair stylist, you face a lot of liability risks, including bodily injuries, property damage, and professional liability. Hair stylists insurance helps protect both you and your business from the financial impact of a liability claim. To make sure you have a strong base of liability protection, you'll want your hair stylists insurance policy to include general liability, professional liability, and business personal property coverage.

At Beauty & Bodywork Insurance (BBI), we keep insurance simple. You can purchase a hair stylists insurance policy for one of two easy prices: $96 for professional hair stylists and $67 for hair styling students. You can also add one additional insured for $15 or an unlimited number of additional insureds for $30.

To be eligible for a policy, it is important that you do not provide any of the services listed on our excluded methods page.

The short answer? Yes! The longer explanation is that hair stylists face a lot of potential liability risks. Chemicals in dyes, sharp cutting tools, and heat from styling tools can all injure a client, even if you're careful. Or they can damage the premises if you are styling hair on site for a wedding, prom, or other event. In all of these situations, you could be liable for a variety of expenses, including medical bills, repairs, and legal fees.

In addition, if you rent space at a salon or other location, the owners may require you to have liability insurance—and to list them as an additional insured—before they hire you.
