What does she look like? = describe her physical appearance, generally.How does she look? = describe her physical appearance, right now. For example, "She looks beautiful today, with her hair done up."

Just based on native instinct, both questions mean roughly the same thing, but ...

"What does she look like?"

Since it"s a "what" question, I think this phrasing suggests that the answer should be a noun:

she looks like a catshe looks like an 80"s pop star

etc.

"How does she look?"

(Note the question sounds more natural without "like".)

Since it"s a "how" question, I think this question fits better if the expected answer is a descriptive adjective:

she looks greatshe looks terrible

etc.

But they are somewhat interchangeable. The second form of the question is more common. The first khung of the question registers some surprise, suggesting that someone looks a bit strange.

How does she look like? sounds lượt thích a direct translation from the German Wie sieht sie aus? because wie means how in English. I hear Germans make this mistake all the time.

So, the translation is logical, but we ask the question with what in English.
