Professional liability insurance

Professional liability insurance, sometimes called errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance), is coverage for claims against businesses that provide professional and personal services - business like yours. Some examples of the situations that could occur in your beauty business that, if you’re uninsured, could cause significant financial damage:

  • Lost Wages: A hairdresser messes up a newscaster’s hair causing them to miss work. The client sues for lost wages and the incremental cost of having their hair done by someone else. Professional liability insurance (errors and omissions insurance) could protect you if such a claim is made.
  • Treatment gone wrong: An esthetician applies a chemical peel for a client. This client just returned from a vacation where she was in the sun all day. The client’s skin looked fine before the vacation but the extreme sun exposure on sensitive skin caused painful, ugly burns. The client decides to blame the esthetician and sues. Professional liability insurance (errors and omissions insurance) could protect you if such a claim is made.


You need to know that you can be sued for negligently performing services, even if you haven't made a mistake. Professional liability protects you in these instances.

General liability insurance

General liability insurance protects you from third-party claims arising from bodily injury (slips and falls), personal injury (libel or slander), and damage to someone else's property. When could general liability insurance come in handy? Here are some examples:

  • Bodily injury:  A nail technician completes a manicure for a client leaving on a cruise and gives her a tube of serum designed to lengthen the manicure’s life. When the client uses it, she develops a rash all over her fingers and has to postpone the cruise. She sues the manicurist. The subsequent claim and related medical expenses would fall within the General Liability coverage, subject to your policy’s terms and limits.   
  • Damage to client property: A cosmetologist gets hired to provide makeup styling on a commercial video shoot. She sets her bags on a shelf, but realizes two seconds too late that the shelf can’t support the bag’s weight, causing the shelf to buckle, and the bag to fall directly on top of a box of expensive props. Your general liability policy should cover the subsequent claim, up to your policy's limits of liability.
