Salon gold won't insure you if you don't have a hairdressing qualification. I guess they will insure you but then if something happens and you can't show hairdressing qualification then you're in trouble.

They has changed their policies. You should call them again as they don't insure you unless you hold a NVQ to do hair extensions.

I only renewed mine on the 24th last month... Surely they would have told me on the phone if they were renewing so soon?

No not on hair extensions but they only cover those who are hairdressers and not just done a hair extensions course. I am not sure if it was NVQ specifically but they said the only insure qualified hairdressers to do extensions.

Best thing to do is call them! But I'd be really careful! They will insure you sure but I asked them specifically and if I make a claim and I have no hairdressing qualification they don't cover. Up to you if you want to gamble but I'd call and really make sure!!! That's what the lady told me.

I did ask them specifically as im not a qualified hairdresser. They told me im fully insured and they will pay out if any thing goes wrong aslong as i dont carry out any other hair treatments that im bot qualified to do, which i dont anyway. As i said, this was on the 24th april so if theyve change their policy since then surely they would have informed me.

Oh well that's really odd! I spoke to them on Friday as I was changing my policy. If she said that then it must cover you but to me they said the Don't cover you if you're not a hairdresser too and made sure I understood this if I make a claim as they changed it as covering non qualified hairdressers is too risky. Im talking to them tomorrow again so will ask.

So are they open on sundays? I was going to wait until tuesday to phone and ask about them changing their policy but i will phone tomorrow if they are open. Ive just checked the website too it doesnt say anything about changes on there.

They changed that sometime last year so it's not something new as far as I knew. You should call them and make sure that they really cover you to fit and cut them. Ask what you need to provide if you make a claim.
