A: It is impermissible in Shari’ah for a woman to cut or trim her hair. If strands of hair fall (due to combing, etc), she should bury the hair.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وفيه قطعت شعر رأسها أثمت ولعنت  زاد في البزازية وإن بإذن الزوج لا طاعة لمخلوق في معصية الخالق ولذا يحرم على الرجل قطع لحيته والمعنى المؤثر التشبه بالرجال اه (الدر المختار 6/407)

فإذا قلم أطفاره أو جز شعره ينبغي أن يدفن ذلك الظفر والشعر المجزوز (الفتاوى الهندية 5/358)
