The Business Octopus provides specialist insurance packages for hair and beauty businesses of all sizes and types, tailored and bespoke to the treatment services you may provide.  A standard beauty insurance policy may not offer the specific cover you need for your business but we make every effort to fully understand all your business activities and make sure you are covered correctly.  Our policies will give you peace of mind and allow you to focus on your business knowing that should the worst ever happen you are fully protected and so are your clients.

Whether you are a hair salon or mobile based beauty business, you will need to double check that every treatment you offer is included in your policy otherwise any claim you may make could be invalid.  You may have tanning booths within your beauty salon; you may require specific treatment risks liability cover or employee liability cover if you employ staff, all of which can be discussed with our insurance specialists.  Once we have your requirements we will then look at which policies are suitable for you to compare, via our panel of carefully selected leading UK beauty insurance providers.
