Dear Brother,

Is hair cutting to give it a proper style or styling of hair permissible at all in Islam even if the woman observes proper hijab? Is eyebrow plucking permissible?

It is not permissible for a female to cut her hair on head even to please her husband, because it is strictly prohibited in ShariĄŻah. If her hair is long, she should look after it by plaiting it and combing it.

Plucking eyebrows is also not permissible as it is reported that our prophet Muhammad (saws) has invoked the curse of Allah upon the Mutanammisah (a female who removes her eyebrows). However, one is allowed to remove the facial hair other than eyebrows. (Sahih-ul-Bukhari, 879/2)

Being in Hijab or without Hojab has nothing to do with it.

And Allah (swt) Know the Bes
