Question:

Hello, I hope I’m not asking a question that has been already answered. Is a single girl of marriagable age allowed to shave during sefirah? Specifically legs. Thank you very much.

Answer:

The custom to not cut hair during sefira, seems to include body hair, as with other places where haircuts are forbidden [such as the 9 days]. However, the inclusion of women in this custom is questionable, and as such when there is discomfort, embarrassment or some other real need, a woman may remove body hair during sefira.
