  • Business interruption coverage
Professional liability insurance icon

Professional liability insurance

This policy covers lawsuits related to work performance, such as dissatisfaction over a client's hair dye or styling. This policy is also called errors and omissions insurance (E&O).

  • Lawsuits related to customer dissatisfaction
  • Accusations of harm from a styling treatment
  • Work errors, such as using the wrong hair dye
Workers’ compensation insurance icon

Workers’ compensation insurance

Almost every state requires workers’ comp for salon businesses with employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
