Question:

Can I get my eyebrows waxed during the shloshim?

Answer:

A married woman, or a woman that is looking for a shudduch that is in aveilus of shloshim may remove unwanted hairs during shloshim. Although the Rema holds not to take haircuts during shloshim, this only applies to taking a regular haircut, since women often grow their hair long. However a married woman may remove unwanted and unsightly hairs so she will look pleasant to her husband.
