Question:

shalom aleichem,Can the moustach be trimmed or shaven according to halacha?also can other parts of the beard be trimmed or shaped?

Answer:

According to Halacha it is permitted to trim one’s moustache or beard. One should be careful not to trim his beard in the area of the upper part of the ear too close, as that part of the head needs payos, and may not be trimmed too closely. Regarding shaving, it is permitted as long as the shaver is not considered “taar” (like a razor).
