Making Qurbani and Removing Hair, Nails

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If you have offered a qurbani is it permissible to remove hair, cut nails etc? If it is not when does that apply from: how many days before hajj? Is it haram to do so?

A: It is permissible to remove hair and nails before qurbaani, i.e. during the first ten days of zhul-hijja, but very rewarding not to do so until one has made qurbaani. This applies to those who intend doing qurbaani. So it is not haraam to cut the nails etc.
