Halocho #559 - Beards and shaving

The beard-area begins at the bottom of the ear where the Payot-area ends - towards the bottom of the ear - and includes the entire face.

Men may not shave their beards with a razor.

Even when using hair-removal cream on the beard-area, men cannot use a blade or a knife; they should use a rounded spatula or other instrument that cannot cut.

Women may not shave a man's beard or Payot for him either.
