General Liability

General Liability

Bought by 95% of business owners like you

Workers’ compensation insurance can help you and your employees after a workplace accident. Most states require it as soon as you hire your first employee. It can help pay for medical bills and lost wages after an accident.

Barber insurance requirements

Barbers are almost always required to have insurance due to the risk of injury to customers’ hair or skin or damage to their property. You might need insurance to:

  • Start working independently or at a barbershop. Barbershop owners might ask you to have active insurance — usually general liability or workers’ compensation.
  • Hire employees. Most states require workers’ compensation.
  • Drive for business purposes. Business-owned vehicles typically need commercial auto insurance.
  • Repair or replace property you own or rent. Protect your inventory, equipment and even the building that you lease or own.

Frequently asked questions about barber business insurance

Here are some of the most common questions we get about barbers’ liability insurance. If you don’t find the answers you need here, our licensed, U.S.-based insurance advisors are standing by to help via online chat or phone.

How does business insurance protect barbers?

Our barber insurance packages are designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and help you save money to grow your business. You’ll be protected from financial losses related to:

Damage to someone’s property

You spill hair dye on a customer’s designer jacket. The general liability coverage in your insurance package would help pay for a replacement.

Accidents that hurt someone

A customer slips and falls on a spill near your chair. Your general liability coverage would also come into play here by helping to pay for medical costs and legal fees.

Professional mistakes 

A client claims that you cut their hair far too short, forcing them to cancel their photoshoot. Professional liability insurance helps you defend yourself if you’re accused of making a mistake that causes someone to lose money. 

Workplace injuries 

When handling a straight razor, you slip and get a cut that requires a few stitches. Workers’ compensation insurance with business owner’s coverage can help cover medical bills and lost wages. Workers’ comp is usually required by law if you have employees. 

Injuries and damage involving your business vehicles

Your work vehicle is vandalized while parked outside the barbershop. Commercial auto insurance will help pay for the repairs. This coverage is also usually required by law for business-owned vehicles. 

Damage to your own property

Frozen pipes burst at your barbershop and cause water damage. Commercial property insurance can help with replacement or repair costs if your owned or leased property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe, fire, tornado or vandalism.

What do I need to get an insurance quote online?

We keep it simple and straightforward so you can find the coverage that’s right for you within a few minutes. When you start a quote for insurance, we’ll ask you a few basic questions about your business, including: the kind of services you provide, the location of your office or where you plan to work, how many people you employ and how much you pay them and the number and type of vehicles you use for work.
