Nail salon insurance FAQs
  • Why should I consider nail salon insurance?
    • Whilst the excitement of launching a salon is a major attraction to many nail technicians, becoming responsible for an entire business can carry its risks.

      There are obvious theft, fire, and accidental injury risks which could occur at any time and leave you with expensive legal or repair costs.

      Say one of your employees slips on a wet floor and makes a claim against you, or the business property you’re liable for is damaged in a fire—having the correct nail salon insurance could save your business in the worst-case scenarios.  

    How much does nail salon insurance cost?
    • Many factors can affect the cost of your makeup artist insurance, such as:

      • the number of staff you have

      • where your business is based

      • the type and level of cover you choose

      At Ripe, we strive to make insurance simple and believe you should only pay for the cover you need. You can save money and time by providing some quick details about your business and getting an instant online quote today.

    What is included in nail salon insurance as standard?
    • At Ripe, each nail salon insurance policy includes public liability, products liability, and treatment risk cover as standard.

      You can customise your policy to include various optional extras, so you only ever pay for the cover you need to manage your salon with peace of mind.

    What is nail salon liability insurance?
    • Public and products liability cover is designed to protect you from any third-party claims for injury or property damage arising from running your salon.

      Say you spilt nail glue on a client’s expensive handbag, and they made a claim against you, public liability insurance could provide financial protection.

      Another example is if a product you’ve supplied to a client gives them an allergic reaction, this is where products liability cover would protect you.

      At Ripe, up to £1.25m of nail salon liability cover is included as standard, but you can opt for up to £10m of cover.

    Do I need insurance to teach others in a college or teaching facility?
    • While it’s not compulsory, you might want to consider teaching cover to protect yourself against potential negligence claims.

      Say one of your students fails to become qualified and sues you for the costs of retraining. Teaching cover could provide financial protection so the damage to your business and reputation is minimal.

    Do I need insurance if I employ others in my salon?
    • It’s a legal requirement in most cases to have valid Employers’ Liability insurance. This can be included as an optional extra when you’re customising your policy.
