As long as it is before Hatzos then it may be done Lechatehilah. If it is after Hatzos then it may be done by a non-Jew.(SA OC 468 1 MB 5)

Under Bar or Bas Mitzvah may be given a haircut after Hatzos Lechatihilah.

  • Just to point out that this means men who want to shave before the start of chag/sefira need to do so before noon.
