When to trim privet bushes?

Over winter my privet turned brown. Now all green are starting to come through, Should I leave whatever brown is on the bush or remove it to make room for the green leaves.????

Also, the tops of my Boxwood got yellowed over the winter. Should I trim off the yellow areas.???

You can prune any dead material off at any time. The privet will come back on its own, but giving it a pruning will help it to branch out.
