How do you get rid of nose hair?

I've just looked at myself in a mirror in a room with lots of natural light and it seems my nose hair has a life of its own.
How do I get rid of it? Everything else gets waxed bit I'm assuming that's not an option (ouch at the thought).

I wax mine! I do it when I'm doing my lip, I let the wax cool so it's starting to firm then dip my finger in and then roll it over the hair. Not as painful as you'd think!

I pluck it. Hurts like hell though and makes my eyes water thlshock

Tweezers. Extremely painful

I shove veet up mine. The hair that comes out never ceases to amaze me.

They sell a little personal hair trimmer, I've seen it in TKMax but I'm not sure where it comes from originally. Possibly Argos would do one? It's sort of pen shaped and you shove it up your nostril is what I've gleaned from the packet!

I bought a men's nose hair trimmer, I now have the veet ladies trimmer which has loads of attachments which are perfect for trimming and tidying.

Those of you who pluck or wax...OUCH shock

Daily how do you get the veet out?

Nads nose waxing kit is brilliant!

And does Veet not sting?

FiddleFigs Fri 27-Oct-17 12:09:44

I taught myself to thread (using YouTube) for this reason alone! Hurt like hell the first couple of times, and now I don't feel it.

Dailystuck71 Fri 27-Oct-17 12:24:30

Veet doesn’t sting at all. I use a baby wipe to get it out. I can never stop staring at the hair that comes out 🤢

Iceland22 Fri 27-Oct-17 18:19:29

Honestly veet! Just the thought makes me squirm. I'd be interested to see how to wax it. I'll report back!
Those nasal hair trimmers are the kind of thing you see in the Sunday supplement magazines that I used to love! Never thought I'd be ordering from there smile

I just trim with little nail scissors blush

Chewbacca, love your name, very appropriate for this thread, thank you for making me laugh thlgrin

working925 Fri 27-Oct-17 19:55:37

Veet? Really? Is that safe?

Hellywelly10 Fri 27-Oct-17 19:56:01

Wax strips. But I want to try nads.

soundsystem Fri 27-Oct-17 19:56:39

You can get it waxed! If you're in/near London, Strip do it. It's not actually that sore!

I saw Kyle and Kim from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills get their noses waxed. I never knew it was a thing.

Gotta be easier than pissing about with nail scissors up your hooter.

bettyboo40 Fri 27-Oct-17 20:10:24

Tweezers. Doesn't hurt any more when I do it!

Paintbox Fri 27-Oct-17 21:51:37

Please don’t wax or pluck nose hairs! The hair isn’t really important for infextion control to the brain and a plucked hair follicle can easily get infected which can travel to the brain. Trimming is much much better.

Ffs I meant IS really important!!

If you pluck them they can grow clean through your nose:

Nose strimmer from boots, in the men's section, waxing, plucking? Ouchie! Cost 5 quid!
