"This has been clearly stated by the Alor Setar City Council," Chinese daily Kwong Wah Yit Poh quoted councillor Chow Hooi Pin as saying.

He said that signboards with words like 'hair salon' or 'hair specialist' could be displayed at their premises, the Star reports.

"However, there is no prohibition on women cutting the hair of male customers and vice versa," he said.
