Question :
What is the ruling concerning a woman cutting her hair?

Answer :
Among the Hanbalis, it is disliked for a woman to cut her hair. But if the haircut is like that of men, it becomes forbidden. This is based on the Prophet's saying:
Allah has cursed those women who imitate and be like men.
"Allah has cursed those women who imitate and be like men."
Recorded by Ahmad. In the version by Al-Bukhari and others, it is the Prophet (peace be upon him) who cursed such women.
Similarly, if she cuts her hair in such a way as to resemble the disbelievers, it is also forbidden. It is not allowed to imitate the disbelievers, Godless women. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Whoever resemble or imitate a people is one of them.
"Whoever resemble or imitate a people is one of them."
Recorded by Abu Dawud. Al-Albani has graded it sahih. Al-Albani, Sahih al-Jami, vol.2,p.1058.
If it is neither an imitation of men or of the disbelievers, then it is disliked among the Hanbali scholars.
Shaikh ibn Uthaimin
