BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Taking hair stylist insurance off the chopping block


ShearShare, a McKinney, Texas-based marketplace connecting hair stylists with salon owners, is cutting costs on traditional professional liability policies, which some stylists forgo because of the costs, according to an article in Inc. magazine.


This month it made public a new partnership with Lloyd’s of London to offer to stylists ShearShare, a short-term professional liability insurance that can be purchased for day-to-day coverage, the article says.


Professional liability for hair stylists could cover a chemical left on hair for too long or a client who is extremely unhappy with a cut and can show that it’s not what he or she asked for, according to the article. 


Stylists can buy the insurance — which costs $5 a day and covers stylists for up to $1 million of liability — for the days they are working at booths booked through ShearShare, rather than paying $169 to $259 in advance for an annual policy, according to the article.
