الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب
The earnings from cutting hair are halal but the earnings from shaving beards are haram. It is stated in Waqar al-Fatawa that shaving the beard is haram, doing such a job is haram, getting your beard shaved by someone else is haram and any earnings from this is also haram.
