I have chin hairs sad and so need some tweezers. I am left handed and not very dexterous. Please can you recommend a good brand and model (slanted / non slanted totally confuses me) of tweezers - happy to pay a decent amount of money if they work. Me and my chin would be very happy!

Hi, I'm left handed and never even considered that tweezers wouldn't be ambidextrous! I have just bought a new pair of Rubis classic tweezers on amazon for £22. IMO they are the best, they are really fine at the end and are easy to use and will pluck very fine short hairs. I have the slanted edge ones

Thanks Onedog - not sure if tweezers are 'handed' but I've spent a fortune on tweezers and can't use them well, so thought may be its my lefthandedness rather than my incompetence! Will check out amazon. Thanks

I'm left handed and had also never considered that it would make a difference.

I have some Tweezerman slanted tweezers which I bought many years ago. I remember thinking that £12 was expensive for tweezers, but they are still perfect and stand up to DH's strong rogue eyebrows

Some cheaper makes don't have a ends which actually close tight on each other, which makes for a dissatisfying plucking experience. You need to be able to really grip each hair firmly.

Another leftie here! I need special scissors but not tweezers.

I think tweezers are essential and it's well worth paying money for a decent pair. Tweezerman are the best and wouldn't consider using any other brand. I particularly like their super pointed ones.

Thanks all. I've tried tweezerman recently but to no avail. They seem not to grip the hair. I used to have a fantastic pair but they got lost.

Any other suggestions - happy to pay £
