From the low fade, high fade and crew cut through to the buzzcut, quiff and pompadour, your barbershop styles are as unique as you are, and therefore, your policy should be too. We can protect your business with a range of barbers insurance policies – including cover for staff, tools and business equipment. You may be a scissor specialist, but should a client get accidentally hurt, you’re the one left with damages to pay. Therefore, we style policies that protect your brand’s needs, your clients and any contents that you wish to cover. We love to look good too, and with fantastic testimonials, being a Feefo Platinum awarded company and providing access to the UK’s leading insurers, we know we can find the right policy for your business.

And when it comes time to update your policy, we won’t charge administration fees for mid-term adjustments – just offering helpful guidance, and cover that helps your business no end.
What may be included in a barbers insurance package?
Public Liability Insurance
Whether customers trip over a wire, or there’s a scissor accident, this policy will cover you for any harm of injury, as well as damage done to personal property.
Employers’ Liability Insurance
Your team needs protection too, and under UK law, they must be protected. Compensation will be provided should they suffer an injury or illness due to working.
Replacing items such as straighteners, razors, mirrors and hairdryers should they be damaged, lost or stolen.
A great policy to have in place should any of the styling products you use or sell be lost, damaged or stolen.
