Women Hair cutting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

Is cutting bangs considered haram in Islam ?

Answer

Wa ʿAlaykumus Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhī Wa Barakātuh

Whilst bangs are rare and an uncommon practice amongst those women who are religiously upright, it is a common practice found amongst celebrities, non-Muslim women, and those who openly transgress the bounds of the Sharī’ah.

The Jurists have therefore stated that is impermissible for a woman to cut her hair; hence, rendering bangs impermissible.

We, therefore, advise that you exercise caution in this regard.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
