Question: What is the ruling regarding a woman having hair extensions?

Response: It is haraam for a woman to have hair extensions using [real] hair or that which resembles [real] hair for the authentic evidences which mention this [prohibition].

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet ﷺ and his family and his companions.
