Qatar Chamber held a webinar with businesswomen and investors in beauty salons to discuss challenges facing this sector. The meeting held upon a request from several businesswomen and investors in beauty salons to review losses incurred by this sector due to practices of "home hairdressers" who practice the profession at home without a license, adversely affecting the licensed salon sector.
During the webinar, Qatar Chamber board member and chair of Woman Committee Ibtihaj Al Ahmadani said the Chamber's Woman Committee is interested in discussing all obstacles facing businesswomen to find appropriate solutions with concerned parties. She noted that the problem of unlicensed hairdressers is one of the obstacles that face commercial sectors worldwide, affirming that it must be addressed to find effective solutions.
Al Ahmadani also said that the Woman Committee in the Chamber received complaints from businesswomen who are suffering the spread of the phenomenon of unlicensed traders in beauty sector, who work without a license in violation of the law. She assured that this phenomenon had been raised many times in the meetings of the Woman Committee, underlining the importance finding deterrent solutions for this problem.
The webinar also reviewed all legal and moral violations of this phenomenon, as well as its health and financial impacts on the national economy, and the financial impacts on licensed salons. The meeting also touched on the positive impacts of licensed salons on the states economy and their contribution to making Qatar a tourist destination in the field of women's beauty centers.
Attendees said that the beauty centers provides jobs and
income for the staff working in many fields, noting that salons are
required by the Ministry of Commerce to use products that meet standard
specifications in terms of components and validity, so salons supply
other commercial sectors with liquidity to buy cosmetics, sterilizers,
and new products that are offered in the market.
