Do Your Employees Have Workmans' Comp?

Do Your Employees Have Workmans' Comp?Hair salons, barber shops and day spas are busy all day, and purchasing insurance is time-consuming and confusing, and can be a huge money drain for any business owner. Now, a new online insurance company,, has been engineered specifically to service the salon, spa and barber shop industry. The company was developed by Chicagoan Jerry Doorhy of Connor & Gallagher Insurance Services, in partnership with The Hartford, who recognized the need for easy, very affordable and reliable insurance available online for the salon industry. allows customers to buy all of their small-business insurance needs completely online, in as little as 15 minutes, and sometimes without even a phone call. This eliminates comparison shopping, in-person meetings, and other frustrating time wasters. And more often than not, salon businesses waste money on insurance products they don’t actually need, or worse, they skimp on necessities and are underinsured.

Salons and barber shops don’t need many insurance products required by a lot of other small businesses – such as restaurants -- so their quotes are very basic, yet specific to the industry. Therefore, it’s easy to determine needs with a quick online form.

After visiting with many Chicago-area salons and barber shops, founder Jerry Doorhy said one thing some business owners don't always know is that they do need workers’ compensation insurance for booth-renting employees. And so has designed low-cost, targeted insurance coverage plans to educate customers and cover exactly what they need, and nothing else. He says has proven to be the most affordable salon insurance provider in the industry.
