Please visit my previous post here for a graphical calendar of dates above. Also a quick reminder from another previous post,

“It is recommended for a person who has made his clear intention to offer the sacrifice to observe” certain “restrictions from the beginning of the month of Dhul Hijjah until the sacrifice is made. He is simply required not to take anything off his hair or body. Hence, the restrictions are not to cut his hair or clip his nails.”
