    Title: Women cutting hair after completing Umra

    Question: I would like to ask that after performing Umrah, if a woman's hair is not in one length, it is cut in two layers or more, then should the woman cut her hair off from the bottom of every layer or just hold all the hair together and cut some off from the bottom. Also what is the length of the hair that should be cut off?
