Malaysia salon owners fume over 'sexy poster' warning
KOTA BARU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Hair salon operators in Kelantan are fuming following verbal warnings from the Kota Baru Municipal Council to remove posters featuring models who did not cover their heads.
One salon operator, who only wanted to be known as Ong, said they had been told by enforcement officers that the posters placed in front of their salons were deemed "too sexy".
Ms Ong said she was shocked when five officers turned up at her salon on Thursday to caution her about it.
"However, they did not force us to bring down the posters. All I did was hear them out. But I could not understand why they wanted to do so. It is not stated in our permits.
