    Iran sets new haircut code

    Iran sets new haircut code

    TEHERAN - WOMEN in Iran must cover their hair in public to comply with Sharia law, and men, too, are expected to have modest haircuts - but what exactly does that entail?

    A new set of hairstyles has gone on display aiming to guide barbers and their customers away from the temptations of decadent western coiffures.

    More styles are set to be unveiled on Sunday as part of the ministry's Veil and Chastity Day festival, reported The New York Times.

    The haircut catalog is part of the Iranian government's long-running battle against Western cultural influence. Every summer, the country's morality police renew their crackdown on 'un-Islamic' dress and styles, including loose veils on women and long hair or ponytails on men.

    This year the crackdown appears to have been especially harsh, perhaps in part because of the government's efforts to foil any renewed protests on the June 12 anniversary of the disputed presidential election last year, said NYT. Special police squads have stopped or arrested unmarried couples, women wearing too much makeup and people playing Western music.

    The haircut guidelines appear to be aimed at balancing the more aggressive enforcement with a softer promotion. On Monday, the director of the Veil and Chastity Day festival, Jaleh Khodayar, appeared at a news conference with hundreds of barbers and hairdressers to release the haircut posters and explain the campaign. -- REUTERS
