Ruling concerning a woman cutting her hair

Question: I hope you will help me concerning cutting my hair from the front of it in a certain style wherein the hair sometimes falls down over the eyebrows of a Muslim woman. Is this allowed or not? May Allaah reward you.

Response: I do not know of anything [wrong] in cutting a woman's hair. It is not allowed to shave all of it off. You cannot shave off the hair of your head but you may shorten its length. I do not know of anything wrong with that. However, that should be done in a good way that is pleasing to you and your husband. You should agree upon how it is going to be done. Also, it should not be in imitation of the disbelieving women. If you leave it long, it makes it more difficult to wash it and tend to it. If it is long or thick and a women cuts it short or layers it, there is nothing wrong with that. Or she may cut part of it short to make herself more beautiful to herself and her husband. I do not know of anything wrong with that. However, one may not shave all of it off. This is not allowed except in the case of some disease or problem.

The ruling regarding cutting the hair from behind or cutting it in the Princess Diana style


Question: What is the ruling regarding cutting the hair from the back (of the head) such that it is above the shoulders whilst leaving the hair a little longer at the sides?
What is the ruling regarding cutting the hair according to the following styles:
i) Diana style – she is a well-known kaafirah (disbelieving woman);
ii) Lion style;
iii) Mouse style;
and likewise, these are (all) different styles; either by cutting the hair in a style similar to that of the lion, and the other is a style mentioned in the previous question?

Response: It is not permissible for a woman to cut her hair from the back whilst leaving the (hair on the) sides longer. This is because this consists of playing around with her hair which is from her beauty. Also, there exists therein resembling the disbelieving women (kaafiraat), and likewise cutting the hair in different styles as those of disbelieving women and animals, such as the Diana style – the disbelieving woman and (likewise) the animals, and also for that which exists therein of playing around with the woman’s hair which is from her beauty.

Women shortening their hair out of necessity

Question: What is the ruling regarding (women) shortening their hair out of necessity such as in the United Kingdom where the women find washing their hair difficult due to the cold weather so because of this they shorten it.
