Question:

 

Is a woman allowed to cut her hair to beautify herself for her husband? Is it permissible to cut a fringe?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

According to the Hanafi Madhab, it is impermissible for women to cut their hair.

 

It is written in Raddul-Muhtar ” If a woman cuts her hair, she will be sinful…… In al-Bazzaziyya it is added: “Even with the permission of the husband”. (1)
