No scissors for Omer

I could not help but wonder why one does not cut one's hair or shave his beard when mourning (as during the omer period). I found this answer in Jewish Way in Death and Mourning By Maurice Lamm

Archie Granot, whose work graced my second JJ post, created this beautiful omer calendar, but remember, he cuts paper, not hair.
