Study torah while having a Haircut

Question:

Hi

Is one allowed to study torah while he is having his hair cut ( without using kipa of course)

Thanks

Answer:

One is allowed to think in learning but not to talk in learning while his head is uncovered. Even though one has to wash his hands after taking a haircut because of ruiach ra, he may still think in learning while getting the haircut, and after he has his yarmulka on he can also talk in learning.

Best Wishes
