Professional Liablity Icon

PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY

Professional liability is a vital component of your insurance risk management product. A beautician or therapist must have some form of education or license. A hot towel facial could make a client pass out and fall as an example. These high standards expose you to claims stemming from the beauty services you provide.

Commercial General Liability Icon

COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY

Slips and falls can happen in any business. Unfortunately, the beauty industry is more prone to minor accidents. Imagine a client slipping after finishing a pedicure with wet feet. Things happen. These accidents could result in lawsuits. That is why commercial general liability insurance is imperative. Protect yourself and your business with an insurance advantage.

Contents Coverage Icon

CONTENTS COVERAGE

Beauty technicians use a variety of equipment. Some machines that cost tens of thousands of dollars. Supplies and all specialized equipment are all susceptible. Plus, don’t forget about your retail inventory. Spa or Medi-spa businesses need additional coverage to protect their contents and equipment. Content coverage can be attached to your insurance policy. It will protect from theft, fire, water, etc. Insurance coverage with broad, comprehensive protection.

“A business or person that carries out work for a company”. Most estheticians that work at a Beauty Spa are subcontractors. A subcontractor will have a contract with the Spa owner to do specify services at an agreed rate (or percentage).

Botox (along with Laser Hair Removal, Injectables or Microblading) can be added to your Beauty or Spa policy for an additional fee.
