KOSHER HAIRCUT
Anna Irrera

There are mohawks, crew cuts, clean shaves and fades. Full beards, goatees, chinstraps and soul patches. And then there are kosher cuts -- haircuts ordained by Jewish law.

In neighborhoods with large Jewish populations like Midwood, Brooklyn, posters with specific guidelines are easily spotted on barber shop windows. Whether it is nixing a blade for beard trimming or working around the peyos, men's hair stylists like Giuseppe "Pino" Davi and Isaac Ishakov deliver what their customers, and their faiths, prefer.
