The protesters, who also took out a motorcycle rally and gathered at outlets in Vjay Nagar and Tukoganj, threatened to ransack them.
The police action came after it received a complaint from the woman, Pooja Gupta, who was seen with Habib in the video clip.
'Spitting' incident: BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya asks Indore administration to shut salons of hairstylist Jawed Habib
Vijayvargiya says in the video that if the saloons-training center run by Habib weren’t shut down in 48 hours, a massive movement will be launched in Indore to close them down.
A video of the incident, which took place at a workshop held here on January 3, went viral on social media on Thursday.
In the video, Habib is seen spitting on the woman's hair while she sits with her back to him and is heard saying "if there is scarcity of water, then use saliva".
