SASSI (Salon and Spa Specialty Insurance) provides specialized liability insurance coverage to the beauty industry. Coverage is tailored to meet salon professionals' needs and give them access to insurance experts, beauty-savvy attorneys, dermatologists and other experts and highly trained staff.


WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT: We know salons and spas. With 85 years of experience insuring the beauty industry, we continue to stay on top of the trends that influence risks and drive insurance needs.


HOW WE WORK: We provide professional liability coverage, general liability coverage, property coverage, workers compensation insurance and claims management services for salons, day spas, beauty schools, barber shops and electrologists.


CATCH US AT: On Twitter: @sassi_brownyard, Pinterest and Facebook. 


WORDS OF WISDOM: Both stylists and nail technicians should speak up if they notice a potential health concern with a client. Just because they don't tell you about an injury or infection doesn't mean you won't be held liable for further harm caused by salon services.
