We’re not one to poke our noses and ears into other people’s business, but if we have to, we like them to be neatly trimmed. Nose and ear hair usually begins growing in men of their 30’s, and unlucky for us, just as the hair on our head is receding, the hair in our nose and ears starts sprouting. But that’s no excuse. With the latest grooming and trimming technology out, we have no reason not to be looking preened and polished. So on that note, let’s talk about the best ways to cut away those strays.
What not to do
There’s a long list of what not to do when removing hair from delicate areas, but our two particular don’ts are waxing and tweezing- we even shudder at the thought! Our first reason for not choosing these methods is - it’s absolute agony! Our other major reason for avoiding these types of hair removal is it can actually be really harmful.
Our top tips for grooming
Now, we hope that out of common courtesy for the people in your lives, you clean out the sticky stuff. But just in case, before you begin trimming, it’s best to make sure you’ve blown your nose and cleared out any wax sitting in your ears, otherwise this will make trimming much more difficult and definitely messier.
A magnifying mirror and a good light
Make sure you have hold of a good magnifying mirror and a room with some good lighting. It’s a dark cave in there, so it’s hard to see exactly what you’re doing.
Cut what you can see
The hairs in your nose and ears actually have a purpose, to protect you from dirt and dust particles. So don’t be forcing your trimmer too far into those crevices as you don’t want to be getting rid of the hairs entirely. Take our advice and only trim the tufts you can see.
Our main tip is that you purchase a trimmer that can be easily cleaned in water. Hygiene is very important in these areas, so make sure you choose a trimmer that can be rinsed before your next use. Our trimmers feature an active BladeClean system, where a touch of a button separates blades for easy rinsing.
A quick swab job
After trimming, there might be some left over hairs sitting in your nose and ears. We suggest you carefully use a cotton bud to swipe around the insides of the ear and nose to get rid of any excess hairs.
