The Iranian news website Etemaad reports that as of July 23, men with long or extravagantly styled hair will be arrested. They will be ordered to cut their hair and then report to the police, apparently for a check up.
Tehran Chief of Police Ahmad-Reza Radan:
“The streets belong to the sphere of society, not that of the individual. It’s not possible for one to appear in society as one pleases.”
I recall reading similar statements issued in another country about 70 years ago.
Men caught wearing shorts or t-shirts with brand logos on them will also be arrested. No indication has been given as to the punishment for those who do not comply, or whether this new law will apply to visitors.
