General liability usually covers:

  • Bodily injury
  • Third-party property damage
  • Personal and advertising injury
  • Medical expenses

Workers Compensation Insurance for Beauty Professionals

If you have a full-time or part-time employee - or even if other people pay for a chair or desk in your salon - you may need workers compensation insurance. This type of insurance policy covers medical bills, lost wages, and any legal costs associated with an employee who got sick or hurt on the job.

Most states require any business with employees to have workers compensation insurance, so make sure you add it to your beauty & cosmetology insurance coverage!
