Insurance for Hairdressers

"WHO did your hair ?!"

As a hairdresser you know that while "anyone" can cut hair not "everyone" can achieve the right look every time whether it's a hair colour, basic mens cut, blow wave or hair foiling.

When a hairdressing job goes wrong it can be very emotional and traumatic. It's a bit the same with business insurance. When it comes time to claim it can be very stressful if you discover you are not covered suitably.

While, as a hairdresser, you can try "do it yourself" business insurance with a generalist insurance company it makes sense that a business insurance broker that specialises in finding suitable policies for small businesses such as hair salons is a smart choice to source a competitive quote for you to cover your hairdressing business risks.

At SMART we can't help you with the scalp massage, shampooing, cutting, styling, colouring, straightening or blow drying but we CAN help you with cover for your hair salon.

What are some of the types of cover your hair dressing business need?

Insurance quotes for hair & beauty salons

Having their hair "done"" for some people is a fun enjoyable lifestyle experience. For others paying for a hairdresser is similar to paying for a suitable business insurance policy. For these people they don't really want to fork out much for a hair treatment , but they need to get it done . Similarly, business insurance is often seen as a "grudge purchase" by small business owners - but they know it can be invaluable when they need to claim.

Our business insurance brokers are specialists in small retail businesses, including hair salons. They can source suitable business insurance packages (biz pack) to suit the needs of your hair salon/s.
