Haircuts During Hol Hamoed

Haircuts During Hol Hamoed
Day: Tuesday
Date: October 14, 2014
Parshat: Vezot Haberacha
Yalkut Yosef: 531/2

It is forbidden for men and women over Bar/Bat Mitzvah to get haircuts during Hol Hamoed. Men may not shave or trim their beards either. However, one may trim his mustache even if it doesn't get into his food. One may brush or comb his hair even though some hairs will fall out by doing so. Likewise, one may also cut his nails during Hol Hamoed. Ashkenazim are more strict and do not cut their nails during Hol Hamoed.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at sephardichalacha.org
