From a beaming smile from a client after a service, to the next appointment booked before they walk out the door – that’s the dream for salon owners. But it’s creative passion that fires up owners and their teams too. Stylists are artists, armed with the technical skills to craft highlights so blended that clients can’t see where they begin or end. They are the balayage brainiacs, who bring locks to multi-tonal life. They’re also the precision cutters with the ability to take a customer from shabby to sensational in mere minutes, and much more.
We all know how much hairdressers care for the wellbeing of their customers, but who is looking after their business? As an owner, the most fundamental way to protect your salon is to insure it against risk.
By conducting intelligent research, Ripe uncovers the statistics that will help you improve your business. Ripe’s ‘Texture Tax’ report this year found that Type 4 hair customers pay a shocking 43 per cent more for the same service as those with Type 1 (straight) hair, and highlights the need for more salons to become texture inclusive. It also published a report on the hair and beauty start-up hotspots across the UK, giving buzz to those small businesses really repping our special industry.
Ripe means specialist cover that delivers and gives you the confidence to get on with the most important work – making your clients happy in the chair. Just as you tailor that blonde balayage to suit your client’s skin tone and eye colour, Ripe offers flexible insurance policies that are laser-focused on your business.
Hair and beauty professionals aren’t just skilled practitioners, they are also unofficial therapists who lend an ear to clients. Let Ripe be your shoulder to lean on with its UK-based customer service team that is always on hand to help. Ripe is a trusted insurance specialist for more than 320,000 customers, with 98 per cent* intending to renew.
Taking out cover online is short and sweet. You only choose the cover you need, and you won’t pay for anything you don’t. Underwritten by Aviva, and deemed ‘Excellent’ by Trustpilot, you’re in safe hands. Then rest easy with the cover through Ripe, now you can focus on making your clients look and feel absolutely amazing.
