Extending Hair and Fake Eyelashes

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: My husband really likes long hair and I am experiencing severe hair loss (it could be hereditry as I have used many products and have done a blood test). At a hair salon they are fitting hair extentions which according to them is not from the root but attached to your existing hair underneath. Is it permissible for me to have it done for the pleasure of my husband? A friend of mine has put on fake eye lashes are they permissible?

A:You may join hair pieces to your hair to please your husband. However make sure human hair is not used.

A wife may use fake eyelashes to beautify herself for her husband. Likewise a woman whose eyelashes are abnormal may use fake eyelashes to make her eyelashes look normal and not for beauty. Besides these two cases it will not be permissible to use fake eyelashes as there will be no need to.
