Frequently Asked Questions about
Beauty Insurance

Will my beauty insurance policy cover beauticians renting chairs?2019-06-03T13:07:23-04:00

No. Unfortunately, beauty insurance only covers your employees. Beauticians who rent a chair in your salon are considered to be contractors and are not covered by your insurance policy, they would have to get their own insurance policies.

How much beauty insurance should I buy?2019-06-03T13:07:57-04:00

The rule here is as much as you can afford. You will feel much more confident in your practice knowing you have millions of dollars in coverage. Also if you experience a claim early in the year you may not have enough beauty insurance leftover to continue working because your insurance policy has been depleted!
