Looking For Beauty Business Insurance?

What does beauty business insurance offer?

Every beauty business is different and by its very nature being a beautician means working closely with your clients. Whether it be a slip or trip in your salon or a reaction to the products used, there are risks which could put a strain on you and your business if a claim is made. As a beauty therapist, you want to have confidence in your business cover so that you can focus on pampering your clients.

An alternative to beauty business insurance

Whether you’re looking for beauty therapist insurance, massage therapy insurance, or hairdressers’ insurance, The Retail Mutual’s beauty cover options are specifically designed to provide an alternative offering to business insurance products and services for the beauty industry.

What types of beauty cover do we offer?

The Retail Mutual offers a range of cover options for beauty businesses, including the following:

  • Public & products liability cover – We may pay up to £5 million if a customer has an accident in your salon or is injured or made ill by your products and makes a claim
  • Employers’ liability cover – If you have staff or volunteers who are not close family members, you are legally required to have employers’ liability insurance. We offer up to £10 million of protection backed by an insurance policy to meet your legal obligations.
  • Stock and contents cover – Cover for damage, loss or theft of stock and equipment at your premises, for example, specialist equipment you may have
  • Business interruption cover – This could help keep your business afloat in the event of an incident affecting your beauty business. It may cover for loss of profits, extra staff wages and even interim payments to tide you over.
