Dubai closes 17 hair salons for breaching restrictions on opening

In a social media update, the authority revealed measures had been taken against 10 gentlemen salons and seven ladies “for failing to comply to the safety requirements of the partial lift of movement restriction”.


Dubai Municipality has closed down 17 hair salons in the emirate, two days after movement restrictions were partially lifted by the government.

In a social media update, the authority revealed measures had been taken against 10 gentlemen salons and seven ladies “for failing to comply to the safety requirements of the partial lift of movement restriction”.

The municipality, acting alongside Dubai Economic Department (DED), revealed that a store in the fruit and vegetable market had also been closed.

The partial reduction in the restrictions on movement in the emirate was implemented on Friday, coinciding with the start of Ramadan.

As part of the move, people are allowed to move freely for the first time since April 12, while shopping malls have reopened as well as cafes and restaurants, under certain conditions.

In terms of hair salons, they are allowed to reopen, but prior booking must be made and services restricted to hair and nails only.
