IslamQA: Is it haram to have lash extensions?

Swa Is it haram to have lash extension, and if it’s okay to do it as a job.

Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

As discussed in this previous answer, some scholars consider lash extensions permissible, while others consider them prohibited.

Doing it as a job would be permitted according to the scholars who consider lash extensions permissible, while those who consider them prohibited would not permit it.

Both opinions have their own validity, so I cannot really say which one is to be preferred.

And God knows best.
