Assalamo Alaikom, I belong to Hanafi Maslak, I have performed Umra one week ago, when it comes to Hair cut, i went to shop and want to cut hair but they refused to cut because of Prayer time, after insisting from me he cut some hair from upper side and it was below quarter of head, so i went back and after prayer i could not go back to hair cut shop because of pain in my foot so i thought it would be enough to cut some hair, now i'm back home, and some thing is disturbing in mind, should i had to cut more than quarter or not...when i studied, shafai maslak is saying it is allowed to cut some hair more than three pair of hair. Please guide me in this matter, what should i do right now? Jazakallah

In Hanafi Maslak, you are supposed to cut 1/3 of a finger of hair from at least 1/4 of your head. If this was not done then your Ihram is not ended. Since you have already returned home, now you should offer a Da'm (penalty of goat sacrifice) and thereby end Ihram.
And Allah knows best.
