Opening a hair salon for men

Q: My brother wants to run a gents salon business. Is this business halaal? If not, can you please mentioned what is haraam?

A: If the work will not entail anything haraam, such as trimming or shaving beards, cutting women's hair, cutting the hair in different lengths etc. then it will be permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
