Iranian Barbers Warned Against Western Haircuts
Iranian policehave warned barbers against offering Western-style hair cuts or plucking the eyebrows of their male customers. Geez, Iranians are stuck with their unibrows now. And no spiked hair either. Barbers who do not follow these rules might be closed down for a month and even lose their permits to operate.
It came a week after police launched a crackdown against the growing numbers of young women testing the limits of the law with shorter, brighter and skimpier clothing ahead of the summer months.
