Woman covering hair in front of her father

Rabbi Gideon Weitzman

Kislev 18, 5772
Question
Does a married woman have to cover her hair in front of her own father? Even is we hold that hair is considered an erva, is the fact that there is no taava from a father to a daughter enough to render it in the same category as a woman in front of her mother? Can you please provide sources with your response Thanks so much
Answer
Shalom U'verachah, A woman does not have to cover her hair before her father, but many women have the custom to cover their hair in front of their entire family and this may be a good poilcy but not essential. Kol Tuv
