Fix Up, Look Sharp

Being a barber isn’t all about wet shaving, grooming and razor-sharp haircuts – it’s a profession as old as ancient Greece. As a mobile or freelance barber, you’ll have clients whose hair you’ve cut from young lads to fully-grown men, and you’ve been with them every step of the way.

Unfortunately, in the world of scissors and shavers, accidents can happen. When you’re working with sharp instruments, all it takes is a slip for you to cut a client whilst shaving, and you’ll find yourself hit with a compensation claim, which could cause you to have to shut up your service.

Here at Salon Gold, we want to help ensure that an accident doesn’t define your future. Our Barber insurance policy includes treatment liability cover as standard, to keep you protected from accidents like these, so you can keep doing what you love, while we take care of the rest.

Don’t wait for life to cut you at the knees. Make the smart choice and choose Salon Gold.

Do I Really Need Barbers Insurance?

Barbers sometimes think that their business is low-risk and wonder if it’s worth taking out insurance at all. Although there are certainly trades where much more risk is involved, nevertheless accidents and situations can arise that you just can’t forsee, which could lead to someone making a claim against you. It’s worth remembering that in the event of a claim, the insurance premium you pay would probably be a tiny fraction of the cost of a legal defence or settlement.
