Haaji cutting his nails and hair before donning the ihraam

Q: If a person is performing hajj this year, should he refrain from clipping nails and removing unwanted hair from the first of Zul-Hijjah as he will be making Qurbani or should he clip his nails and remove unwanted hair on the 8th, before putting on his ihraam?

A: Yes, it is allowed.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
