Professional Liability insurance - which is also referred to as errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance) - is a type of policy that provides coverage in the event a customer alleges negligence from your professional services.
You set a standard and a guideline for the business you run for hair. As soon as a customer steps through your salon’s doors, your customer is expecting a wonderful experience from start to the finishing blow dry. If any part of your day results in an error or an alleged error from your or your staff, you’re at risk for receiving a claim. This is why it’s crucial for you to get Professional Liability insurance, as it may cover the costs for errors and omissions that occur during your job.
General liability insurance is sometimes combined with professional liability insurance, but make sure you check to see if your coverage includes both options.

With all the chaos of multiple hair stylists running around and moving customers from hair-sink to chair, it’s definitely plausible for an accident to occur. Someone could easily slip and fall on water that wasn’t mopped up quickly enough, or a chair could be knocked over and damage a wall. General Liability is so important because it may cover the costs of medical bills or repairs.
