Let’s face it: seeing body hair in the wrong place can be pretty gross. Yet, of all the places to see hair on a person’s body, perhaps none is more disturbing and “in-your-face” than the sight of a person with long strands of hair growing out of their nose.
But hey, it’s not OUR fault the body is designed to do so. There DOES need to be some hair in our nose to block off all the dust we take in every time we inhale (how do you think boogers form?)
With that said, though, there’s no need for this hair to end up growing a pony tail and hanging down our faces.
Lucky for us, man became inventive at some point and decided to create things that could easily fit into the nostrils and shorten those pesky hairs! The three most popular ones are:
1. TWEEZERS: Simply take a pair of tweezers and pluck the hairs out one at a time. The only downside? Nose hairs are super-sensitive; when you pull them out, it can hurt, and even make you cry. (cough)NotthatI’mtalkingfromexperience(cough)
2. CLIPPERS: And no, I’m not talking about the basketball team. With clippers, you simply cut the hairs as short as you’d like them – the fact that they’re little tiny scissors designed to fit in your nose is definitely a plus, especially if it’s between that or an actual pair of larger scissors (which could have you cutting half your nose off). Just be careful when placing the clippers near your nose: the end is often quite sharp, and you could end up poking yourself by mistake!
3. ELECTRIC TRIMMER: New-age nose hair clipping technology! Electronic trimmers have a shorter end, and are much easier to control: simply stick the end of the device into your nose, turn it on, and watch it trim! Be sure not to stick it in too far, though – no sense in shocking yourself over a simple trim!
Regardless of which method you use, you’ll be able to show your face in public without having people point at you and go: “Geez, why don’t they ever trim those darn nose hairs? They look like a wildebeest!”
Ah, devices made to trim nose hairs… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
