Why get barber cover?

Because with the right insurance protecting you, your staff, your shop and your customers, you can concentrate on the cutting, cropping and crafting you signed up for. Without any insurance worries interfering with your creativity.

Who we cover

Whether you’re a busy barber shop, a freelance barber renting a chair, or on the road carrying out home visits, BarberGuard packs in some special features to cope with the unique demands of your trade.

What's covered

Everything you need to trade safely and securely as a barber comes in one easy insurance bundle. BarberGuard provides full protection for work away from the shop and covers you for £5 million public liability should an accident occur.

The right cover in one
Welcome to the ultimate barbershop quartet:

Public Liability: £5million cover for your business if a member of the public gets hurt; or if their property is damaged in the course of you carrying out your business activities (where it’s proved you’ve been negligent).

Employers Liability: A legal obligation should you have any employees, covering any injuries they incur during the course of their employment where it’s proved you’ve been negligent.

Stock Cover: Stock levels vary for every barber. This covers you for any loss caused by an insured peril and enables you to replace the stock in the event of a claim.

Business Interruption: This covers the loss of income from being unable to work as a result of an insurable claim, such as fire, flood and storm.


You told us that most newly-trained barbers have to wait at least two years before being fully covered for providing cut-throat shaves. That’s why we include cover from day one* for cut throat shaving, giving keen newly-qualified barbers the opportunity to put their training into action from their very first day. Just don’t tell your customer.

Insurance that looks great for you,
your customers and your shop
