Nose hair removal can be a very different process than hair removal on other parts of the body. Not only is the area harder to access and more difficult to see, but the skin lining the nose is also very thin, sensitive, and delicate. Perform your nose hair removal in a bright area, preferably using a lit mirror, such as a makeup or vanity mirror, and clean, disinfected tools. Also, leave enough nose hair that it can still act as a natural filter and protect you from inhaling chemicals, pollutants, and floating debris. Generally, remove only the nose hairs that are visible from the outside and leave the hairs higher up in the nostrils.
A popular way to remove nose hair is simply to use scissors to trim the hairs that are visible around the opening of the nose. When attempting this method of nose hair removal, do not use large scissors or scissors with sharp points that might make it much harder to avoid nicking or cutting the skin. The best scissors to use are small scissors intended specifically for trimming nose hairs, which usually have rounded points or curved blades to prevent cuts. Generally, it is best not to attempt to use scissors to trim hairs deeper in the nose than the very outermost, visible hairs that protrude from the nostrils.
If you feel the need to trim hairs farther up into the nostril, electric nose hair trimmers might be a better idea than scissors. Electric trimmers intended exclusively for nose hair removal usually have a rotary blade at the tip, which trims hairs all around the inside of the nostril, and a blade guard to protect against nicks. Some models of electric nose hair trimmers can be used both in or out of the shower safely, and can even be used to trim protruding ear hairs.
It is rarely a good idea to use tweezers or wax to pluck out nose hairs by the roots. These methods of nose hair removal can be both very painful and dangerous, damaging hair follicles and skin and possibly leading to infections or other problems. Also, avoid using most kinds of hair removal cream in the nose. The fumes and chemicals are often unhealthy to inhale, and the harsh ingredients can burn or otherwise damage the inside of the nose, possibly diminishing the sense of smell.
