If you live long enough, at some point both men and women will be forced to address the hairs growing in or around their ears and nose. People over 40 usually will notice the growth and there are some simple ways to get rid of these hairs. Of course, if you work in a barbershop or salon you will come across clients with these unsightly hairs protruding out of their face. Most people don’t even notice these hairs until one day they are exposed and can no longer be ignored.
The question is, how do you properly remove these hairs without injuring yourself? Well first, I do not recommend using shears to remove hair from your ears and nose. There is always a chance you can injure yourself using shears or a razor. A word of caution: never put any objects in your ears, including Q-tips or shears. If you must clean your ears of wax build up, I suggest consulting your doctor before using any solution which could cause additional health challenges.
In the barbershop and salon there is a growing trend for using the waxing technique to remove ear and nose hair, but they come with additional risks and a few side effects. Clients have experience a runny nose after waxing and some itching. Waxing may not remove all your nose hair, but can be a viable solution to approach nose hair removal.
An ear and nose hair trimmer is probably the best solution for removing hair in these areas. When searching for the right trimmer, remember to consider battery life and research the trimmer motor. Choose a single blade motor over a rotary motor, and go for quality over a low priced trimmer. Somewhere in the $30-$50 range is good.
