# 2651 Getting in Somebody’s Hair


Q. I wasn’t able to take a haircut before Pesach as the barbers were closed. My long hair is bothering me and my family too, it also may be an issue with the tefilin. Can I take one now before Lag Baomer, since in our town barber restrictions have been removed?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that, although not taking a haircut now, may involve some strain and distress, we find longer periods of hair growth that are acceptable in Halacha. Therefore one should wait until Lag Baomer.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a
