Who needs Beauty Salon Insurance?
Salon insurance is essential if you own a small beauty salon or similar business. This is because you can be sued as a business owner – even if you have done nothing wrong. As a salon owner, a client may consider you liable for a haircut gone wrong, causing serious injury to the client’s scalp, even slip and fall injuries to your customers can make you liable. Your best solution is to protect yourself with salon insurance.
Fortunately, AFIG understands what it takes to insure beauty salons and help their owners take control of their businesses. Each beauty salon is unique, and we are able to help you prepare for unfortunate situations that could arise as a result of the services you provide.
Salon owners may offer services related to hair, nails, facial treatments, body treatments, and various other spa services. Therefore, you may also be interested in the specific types of beauty salon insurance that we provide to professionals in this industry. Take a look at the offerings below.

Why Hair Salons & Day Spa need Insurance?
Who needs Day Spa Insurance?
People come to your day spa to relax. While you do your best to maintain a soothing atmosphere, there are plenty of things that could go wrong. A customer could slip while exiting the sauna. An employee could develop an allergic reaction to massage oil. A windstorm could tear the roof off your building, leading to costly repairs and damaged spa equipment.
Highest Quality, Broadest Coverage & Lowest Prices
As a beauty salon owner, or as an Independent Contractor working in a Beauty Salon, sometimes the unexpected happens. Not being prepared could be fatal to your business and your finances. Examples of the unexpected accident in a salon is lurking at every turn: it may be a dissatisfied customer who files a claim, a skin or eye burn or eye rash from a chemical used, a customer slips and falls in your spa or salon, or even damage to your building. Whether or not something genuinely goes wrong, an accident happens, or you are just wrongfully accused, by protecting your business, you are also protecting your financial livelihood and your future.
Hair Salon Insurance Is Important
- There are more than 86,000 hair salons in the U.S., including 4,000 barber shops.
- Combined hair salon revenue for 2012 was $20 billion.
- The hair salon industry is mostly comprised of small businesses, with the top 50 chains accounting for only 15% of total revenue.
- 80% of hair salons have fewer than five employees.
Most U.S. hair salons are one-shop businesses, or small, local chains. Their small size makes them more vulnerable to financial loss due to fire, storm, break-in or lawsuit.

Special Salon Insurance:
Depending on the types of services you provide, you may need some or all of the following types of insurance for beauty salons:
- Drain and sewer backups: If you own a hair salon or barber shop, special coverage options may be a good choice, such as drain and sewer backup coverage to pay for the costs of water damage to your walls and floors if your drains become clogged with hair.
- Fire liability: If you own a spa or esthetician services salonan use candles and flammable oils, you probably need fire liability coverage. If you are sued over a fire that starts within the walls of your business, your legal fees and settlement are covered, up to the limits of your policy.
- Equipment breakdown coverage: If your salon is dependent on equipment such as tanning beds, computers and other machines for revenue, equipment breakdown coverage could be a good investment. This coverage ensures that you can get the gadgets you need back online quickly without emptying your bank account.
- Inland marine: Provides financial protection for equipment that is in transit or in storage. If your employees perform esthetician services, hair care, or spa services in outside locations, such as weddings and private homes, inland marine coverage protects you from equipment loss on the go.
- Professional Liability: Scissors, chemicals and hot surfaces means errors and omissions can happen in a hair salon. You can be sued for damages and expenses resulting from the professional beauty services you and your staff provide, or the failure of your professional services to perform as intended, even if you’ve done nothing wrong. If you are sued, Professional Liability insurance provides financial protection that can help protect your salon’s assets and help cover the cost of your defense in the event of a lawsuit.
- Data Breach: Hair salon businesses may store sensitive information about their employees, stylists, manicurists, and clients. This data can include Social Security and debit/credit card numbers. If this information is lost or stolen, it could leave your salon business vulnerable to lawsuits and a damaged reputation.
