Insurance for UK Salon Owners

by Beresford on June 1, 2012

Most people knew from an early age that they wanted to be a hairdresser when they grew up, and as much as hairdressing is a career, it is most certainly a calling. The rewarding career of working as a hairdresser in a salon is the many different people you meet along the way, the happy customers and the many colourful staff that work in hairdressing salons.

Working as a hairdresser is extremely hard work, not only do people have to be on their feet all day, but they have to have a good business mind, and an exceptional grasp on both science and art, as well as keep up with the latest trends and fashions. All of these pales into comparison, when one realises that more than 90% of a hairdressers job is inside the head, and 10% outside the head.

When one works so incredibly hard in order to be a successful hairdresser, wouldn’t it make sense to want to protect your livelihood in the event that something went wrong? Of course it does, but sadly so many hairdressers think that Salon Insurance UK, is just another wasted overhead and that the salon could rather introduce another range of shampoos for their clients.

In fact, it is more important than any shampoo, and Salon Insurance UK should be considered to be a priority, rather than an overhead, as in the event that something does go wrong, and one disgruntled client lays a claim against a hairdresser or the salon, all of the hard work, everything could be gone in flash of an eye.

Legal claims can become drawn out, and the lawyers will keep on billing, even though nothing is actually happening with a case. Any emerging business, including a hair salon, will not be able to withstand the damage caused by a large legal claim, if they do not have the proper salon insurance in place that will cover and protect the business if a claim is ever made.

A reputable insurance broker will be able to correctly advise salon owners about their specific insurance needs and put together a tailor made policy that will cover the staff and the business should something go wrong.
