Do barbers need insurance?

Barbers who provide hair care services, including cutting, trimming, shaping and tapering their clients' hair, should get professional and general liability insurance. Problems can arise when working with clients who slip and fall at your salon or otherwise feel damaged by your services. Obtaining liability insurance is a great way to protect yourself while continuing to provide beneficial services to clients, which is especially true for barbers who work privately or own their own shop.
