Beauty and hair salon businesses and selling of makeup

Question ID: 28209


dear muftisaab,

alhamdulillah, allah has given “you” to us as a great gift in this difficult time to answer our doubts… may allah bless you with his choicest knowledge to guide men like us in these times of jahiliya and greedyness towards materialistic world.

my question is , is a beauty business halaal or haraam. services renderd are threading (removal of the hair of the cheeks, upperlip and eyebrows using cotton thread ) waxing (removal of hair of hands and feet) , pedicure (cutting of nails and dead cells from the feet and cleaning ), manicure( for hands ),and massages. the salon is only for females and the services are also rendered my females only…

secondly, is hair salon for ladies halaal or haraam. services rendered are colouring of the hair , cutting of the hair , washing of the hair , the salon is for ladies only and services are rendered by females only… as we get lots of parda ladies coming to our salons and get all these things done…

thirdly , is doing makeup halaal or haraam . is it permissable to sell makeup products like lipstick, foundation, etc…..
