Halocho #555 - Sideburns and Payot

The Torah prohibits men from removing their Payot.

The Payot-area is the hair in the triangular area from the top of the ear to the forehead to the bottom of the ear.

According to some opinions even cutting the Payot very close to the skin with scissors is forbidden.
