Citing weird reasons, Iran has reportedly banned fashionable hairstyles as the authorities believe that they imply devil-worship. The authorities have also forbidden tattoos as they fear that ‘getting inked’ might promote homosexuality among the masses.

Lately, stylish haircuts have become highly popular among the Iranian youths. However, the orthodox Iranian authorities outlawed this system as it they consider it be inspired from the West and un-Islamic.

“Devil worshipping hairstyles are now forbidden,” said Mostafa Govahi, the head of Iran’s Barbers Union, cited by the ISNA news agency. “Any shop that cuts hair in the devil worshipping style will be harshly dealt with and their license will be revoked,” he said. Govahi also said that if a hairdresser cuts hair in such a style, then it will “violate the Islamic system’s regulations.”

“Tattoos, solarium treatment and plucking eyebrows are also banned,” as per the report.

Govahi blamed unauthorized barbers for offering the spiky hairstyles and other treatments. “Usually the barber shops that do this do not have a license. They have been identified and will be dealt with,” he said.

“I won’t allow such wrongful western styles as long as I’m in this position,” declared Govahi.

In Iran, the male hairdresser comes under the Barber Union, while the female stylists have their separate trade organizations.
