Self-employed Individual Therapist Insurance

If you are a mobile beautician, freelance hairdresser or nail technician, rent a chair in a salon or work from home, we offer cover for you. We insure a wide variety of Health and Beauty treatments.  Choose optional equipment cover at either £5,000 or £10,000 when you’re on the move or when it’s stored securely on the premises.

Please note: 

  • These policies are not suitable for members of staff directly employed by a salon on a new or existing agreement.
