Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Cosmetologists need insurance?

Cosmetologists are like artists in the beauty industry, starting with a canvas to paint a beautiful masterpiece. Customers rely on you for special events like weddings, proms and more. Even though it seems risk-free, there is always the possibility of lawsuits, injury or damage that can cause financial ruin. Cosmetology insurance protects you in these moments from loss of finances and a damaged reputation. This coverage consists of cosmetology schools as well as beauty shops and hairdressers.

What risks could Cosmetologists face?

The art of cosmetology includes several risks:

  • Bodily Injury: Using a makeup remover or face wash to rid any dirt from your client’s skin is normal, but an allergic reaction or burns can lead to a lawsuit.
  • Advice Goes Wrong: Many cosmetologists offer advice for future skincare and if products you recommend cause injury or damage, you can be held responsible.
  • Bad Product: If you sell makeup products and they don’t work or damage clothing or other property, customers can file a lawsuit for financial damages.
  • Loss of Income: Cosmetologists often rent booths at a local hair salon. If the salon catches on fire, you are left without your products or a place to make an income.
