Umm.. nose hairs?

So, my friend has noticed that her nose hairs are rather more visible lately. This is not ideal. She was wondering what the done thing is. Plucking? Snipping? Braiding with little bows? Let me know and I'll be sure to pass the advice on to my friend.

My friend told me that you can shove a ball of wax up your hooter and rip it all out. They have kits. Tell your friend.

Ow!!! Is probably what my friend will say when i tell her that. But thank you. I'll let her know.

Ouch. What's wrong with tweezers??

You can buy a battery operated nose hair trimmer from Amazon

I have a freind who told me that she very kindly bought her DH a nose hair trimmer as a present, then she forgot to give it to him and just used it herself. It worked very well apparently.

My friend drinks wine then sets about hers with the tweezers. If it's too painful she cuts them with nail scissors. She is a savage.

I do mine with tweezers

GeorgeTheHamster Sun 08-Oct-17 09:24:01

<ahem> I mean my friend does

juneybean Sun 08-Oct-17 09:26:00

Ah far too painful to tweeze!! Shaving is the only way I my friend can do it

Pikachuwithyourmouthclosed Sun 08-Oct-17 09:36:36

How on earth does your friend shave the inside of her nose???

Twinkie1 Sun 08-Oct-17 09:37:33

Wax pot and cotton bud. DH and I do each other’s. Sunday night excitement in our house.

My friend likes the idea of some sort of battery operated trimmer, but also feels that she will die a little inside if she buys one. She quite likes the idea of buying one for her husband and then 'borrowing' it.

I also have a friend with a battery operated trimmer but I'll tell her about the scissors idea, I think she'll like that as the trimmer, she says, doesn't always do the trick.

My friend bought her battery operated nasal trimmer from Ocado so only the Ocado guy knew. It’s their little secret wink

My friend cautions you that loss of nostril hairs increases the risk of bats in the cave. Double & triple check before you leave the house

juneybean Sun 08-Oct-17 10:24:48

My friend very carefully shaves around's hard and can result in cuts though...a battery operated trimmer is the way to go

unicornface Sun 08-Oct-17 10:30:56

My freind first did the 'I'm buying it for my husband' trick before the days of Amazon prime, it was more embarrassing then.

Now it's like buying from Anne Summers, a plain package arrives through the post.

I thought I had a high pain threshold (I'll happily epilate my bikini line)...but pulling nose hair with tweezers? It makes my eyes water just thinking about it.

My friend used Nair for sensitive skin, was fine, worked well

unicornface Sun 08-Oct-17 10:32:04

...well, just far less exciting than opening a package from Anne Summers (according to my friend obviously!).

kingfishergreen Sun 08-Oct-17 10:36:56

My friend takes-on the eye wincing pain of individual extraction via tweezer, apparently

Sometimes if she notices one when she's out and about, without access to tweezers she'll try a manual extraction, which has, on occasion, caused the hair to curl like curling ribbon. So she says.

My friend is also a fan of hair removal cream applied and removed by cotton bud.

She would love to get a waxing kit but she doesn't have a microwave and can't find one that can be used without zapping.

Bloomed Sun 08-Oct-17 11:03:41

If I were to recommend a battery operated trimmer to a friend for her husband, which one would be best?

My friend would like to try waxing but is worried they'd get a polyp or something similar
