Ministry orders Closure of Qatar beauty center for expired hair dyes

A branch of the popular VLCC beauty and slimming center in Al Waab has been temporarily shut-down for displaying and selling out-of-date hair dyes, the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) said.

Following spot checks by inspectors who found the expired products, the salon was ordered to be closed for two weeks, starting yesterday (Apr. 5) and also fined, MEC announced on Twitter in Arabic.

The censured branch on Al Waab Street, next to Al Waab petrol station, is one of three VLCC outlets in Doha. Describing itself as a “wellness” brand with 300 outlets in 11 countries, VLCC provides slimming, beauty and fitness programs.
