Professional Liability Insurance

ShearShare Now Offers Insurance for Cosmetologists by The Day

At ShearShare, we consider it an honor to serve the best industry in the world. And as the largest provider of on-demand salon, spa, and barbershop booth rentals, with that comes the responsibility to alleviate host and stylist concerns so that we can all get back to building our small businesses safely and with confidence.

For the first time ever, licensed industry professionals have the opportunity to access usage-based insurance for cosmetologists only for the days they need them!

As an individual stylist, our industry has never had the opportunity to advantage itself of a pay-for-what-you-need model; as ShearShare continues to pioneer B2B tools that meet our fellow professionals where they are, it’s important that we partner with experts to support our business owners, especially as they rebound our local economies.

ShearShare Protection Program Overview:

We customize your liability insurance so that you only pay for the days you need!

Protect yourself against any liability that may arise from your work and in the event of a third-party claim for bodily injury or property damage related to your ShearShare stay. 

  • Instant coverage, instant checkout and daily certificate availability through the App
  • The lowest, most affordable rates
  • No brainer prices for days you actually work
  • Complete coverage that goes where you go
  • Headache-free, dedicated customer care 
  • Peace of mind

Here are some examples of what the ShearShare Protection Program may cover:

  • A client breaks their wrist after slipping on the back bar mat and brings a claim for the injury against the stylist.
  • A nail client experiences an injury from the drill the stylist uses during an acrylic service. The client brings a claim for the injury against the stylist.
  • A stylist is servicing clients at a salon station. The station shelf breaks and the client is injured when it detaches from the wall. The client brings a claim for the injury against the stylist.
  • A color client slips on unswept hair during her hair service with you as the stylist and brings a claim for the injury against the stylist.
  • A stylist accidentally drops their clipper bag on a third party’s foot in the salon lobby. The third party brings a claim for the injury against the stylist.

Some examples of what the ShearShare Protection Program doesn’t cover:

  • Intentional acts where liability isn’t the result of an accident
  • Accusations of slander or defamation of character
  • Property issues (ex: mold, fungi, asbestos, lead, pollution)
  • Auto accidents (ex: vehicle collisions)

 

It couldn’t be easier, or faster. The ShearShare Protection Program offers barber and hair salon booth rental insurance that lets you pay for what you need on the days you actually need it! Each certificate will be emailed to you and a copy available for download on your confirmed reservation details page inside the ShearShare App. Insurance is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London through the HeyAlpaca platform.
