Let's be honest : nostril hair is not an attractive look.
And yet, for whatever reason, some guys insist on going out in public
with hair poking from their snouts in a vision that would give a Triffid
a run for its money.
Are they blind? Do their loved ones not think to mention it casually
over dinner ("Pass the salt, dear, and do something about your nose
hair while you’re at it")? Or perhaps the mere thought of plucking each
individual hair out, one by one, is enough to bring tears to the eyes of any man?
The science is simple: as men age, a higher percentage of androgens in the body results in unsightly hair sprouting from the ears and nose. To add insult to injury, it all-too-often coincides with a rapidly receding hairline.
Mother Nature has a cruel sense of humour.
In protest at her little joke, wise men fight back by pruning their ear and nose hair with scissors, or those mini battery-operated trimmers that always make an appearance around Christmas time as 'stocking fillers' (for the record: they make rubbish presents).
As we wax aficionados know, the downside of trimming is that this method leaves behind visible bristles and means prickly regrowth within a week. Waxing is a quick and easy solution that gives much cleaner and longer-lasting results…. and surprisingly it hurts a lot less than tweezing solitary hairs out one at a time.
Who wouldn’t be sold?!
It is perfectly safe to remove those nasty little stragglers protruding from the rim of the nostrils, and quite frankly I consider it a public service. So, crank up your wax pot and hold onto your Kleenex, we’re going in.
