Are you a mobile or freelance beauty therapist or hairdresser? We specialise in insurance cover for mobile therapists, technicians, hairdressers and stylists who’ve got the entrepreneurial flair and taken the leap of faith to start out on their own.  


We understand it can be a daunting experience making the decision to become a freelance or mobile beauty therapist or hairdresser; the last thing you need is the added confusion and stress of arranging insurance. At Professional Beauty Direct, we pride ourselves on breaking down the stereotypical assumptions of insurance and go the extra mile to offer a stress-free, friendly experience. We avoid using legal jargon so you really understand the insurance policy that’s right for you. 


As a self-employed, freelance or mobile therapist, practitioner, technician or hairdresser, you’re responsible for working independently helping others to look good and feel good. Whether you travel to client's homes or businesses, have your own treatment room or rent a chair in a salon, you’ve put hours of groundwork in to build your business to be the success it is today. Our mobile hair and beauty insurance ensures you and your business are protected. 


What does our Mobile Hair, Nail and Beauty Insurance include?

We recognise the importance of insurance and hope you do too. It takes time, dedication and hard work to build a successful business and we wouldn’t want to see your business come under fire because of a customer claim. A compensation claim can cost anything up to £100,000 - a difficult challenge to overcome if you haven’t got the right insurance in place. 


Our insurance policy covers an extensive range of treatments and therapies, for a full breakdown of what treatments our policy covers, please explore our self-employed treatment list. If you can’t find a treatment you’re looking for, please contact us online, via email or on 0345 605 8670 and we’ll confirm whether we can cover it. 


We also offer a range of advanced treatments that can be added to our standard mobile beauty insurance policy. Please explore our additional treatment cover for more information. 

Please note, we do require that you hold an NVQ Level 3 or equivalent in Beauty Therapy for us to cover you in our advanced treatments.


Our mobile beauty therapist and hairdresser insurance includes:

  • Public liability cover: This protects you if a client experiences an injury during a visit to your premises, for example, if you have your own treatment room or rent a chair and they slip or trip over a hazard.
  • Treatment liability cover: This protects you if a client sustains an injury or illnesses as a result of the treatment or advice provided by you.
  • Product liability cover: This protects you against claims of an injury caused by products sold or supplied by you.


Please note:

  • These policies are not designed for salon owners
  • These policies do not cover you having employees or being an employee of a salon owner
  • Cover for hair extensions is for qualified hairdressers only

Our insurance policies can be bought using our full quote and buy system allowing you to purchase cover straight away at any time of day or night and be covered immediately after purchase. 


What other insurance cover do we offer?

We specialise in a wide variety of insurances for different treatments; you may be interested in our other insurance areas including salon insurance, student insurance, beauty therapist insurance, hairdresser and stylist insurance or nail technician insurance. It is crucial you obtain the right insurance for you and your business to ensure you’re fully protected in the event that a claim against you arises.


If you are unsure of the services and treatments we cover, please do not hesitate to get in touch online or via email or phone call. We are a small friendly team always on hand to help and answer your queries.
