Halacha - Payos
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

It depends what you mean by "having payos". It is forbidden mi'Doraisa to completely remove the hair in the area of the payos, whether with a razor or a scissors. A minimum of 5-6 mm must be left. The idea of leaving very long payos is based on Minhag and Kabbala, and is not even d'Rabannan.
