Halacha - shaving
Submitted by sam  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Mishna Berura writes that according to R' Yehuda HaChossid that one should not shave on Rosh Chodesh, this applies even on Erev Shabbos. Not all people follow R' Yehuda HaChossid, so it depends on your minhag. Rav Shmuel Kaminetzky shlita said that if a two day Rosh Chodesh falls on Thursday and Friday, one may shave on Erev Shabbos to avoid entering Shabbos looking unkempt.
