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 in the event that a claim is raised. 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 traditional business insurance for the beauty industry.

What types of beauty businesses do we cover?

As a mutual, our objective is to protect and support our Members when they need us most. We have no shareholders, just Members and a Board of Directors elected from the membership whose focus is on providing simple, effective and reliable business cover for independent retailers and beauty businesses, including:

  • Beauticians
  • Hair and beauty salons
  • Beauty therapists
  • Manicurists and pedicurists
  • Nail technicians

What Types of Beauty Cover do you need?

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

  • Public Liability Cover – We provide public liability cover up to a value of £5 million, which is designed to protect beauty businesses should a customer have an accident within your salon and choose to make a claim
  • Employers’ Liability Cover – If you employ staff or work with volunteers, you may be contractually required to have employers’ liability cover. Our protection offers up to £10 million of protection
  • Stock and Contents Cover – This will protect against loss or theft of stock and equipment from your premises, for example items sold to customers or any specialist equipment you may have
  • Business Interruption Cover – This helps to keep your business afloat in the event of an incident affecting your beauty business. It may cover for loss of profits, staff wages and even interim payments to tide you over until your claim is fully settled

  • We provide flexible cover to suit the needs of individual businesses
