Opening a beauty parlour

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am a Muslim woman and I wanted to know that is it a gunnah to open up a beauty parlour and I will do all the jobs like plucking eyebrows of Muslim and non Muslim women and waxing and many more.

A: On account of the numerous wrongs that are associated to this profession we consider this to be a very shameful and reprehensible occupation.

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