What is insurance for hairdressing?

Working closely with customers every day exposes hairdressers to several risks.

From cuts and scratches to skin reactions or permanent hair damage, common accidents can have expensive consequences for your business.

Most clients try to understand when things go wrong, but it only takes one compensation claim to put your business under serious strain.

If you don’t have the correct cover, legal proceedings can be complicated and expensive.

With Churchill’s flexible insurance you get reliable, cost‐effective cover for all aspects of your business.

We can tailor our cover to suit your needs and offer you insurance that’s there when you need it.

What insurance do we have for hairdressers?


Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance isn’t legally compulsory for hairdressers but most people in customer-facing industries think it’s essential and some contracts require it.

As well as giving you peace of mind and security for your business, it also helps you present a professional image.

Having Public Liability Insurance means you’re protected if you or an employee accidentally injures a customer or damages their property.

Our Public Liability Insurance offers you up to £1 million of cover as standard, with the option of increasing it to up to £10 million.
