….we all have it.
Nothing to be ashamed of.
Unless you let it get out of control………
If you let those nose hairs grow to a point that others notice – especially women (who are on average shorter than us men!) – you'll have others thinking about your nose hairs……which isn't what you want 🙂
In today's article, I give you six different nose grooming methods and tools you can use to get the job done.
The goal is to make nose hair trimming a part of your routine so that you avoid potentially embarrassing situations.

Here are 6 different grooming methods and tools to choose from:
There are specialized scissors made to cut nose hair. You do NOT want to go with nail or cuticle scissors which can do the job but open up the risk of injury with their sharp ends.
Instead opt for ones that are especially created for grooming the nose. They are easily recognizable by their smooth rounded edge.
Apex makes a good pair of grooming scissors. Another, higher end option is Zamberg. They have a whole line of grooming scissors made in Germany. from high-end steel that maintains it's cutting edge for decades.
Scissors are the most popular method of grooming nose hair and are probably the easiest.
2. Manual Nose Hair Trimmer
I personally have used the Groommate on and off for the last 7 years. It's a manual hair trimmer that is considered a precision tool (don't drop it!) Manual nose hair trimmers are effective and do exactly what they advertise.
As the Groommate is not a battery powered tool it is always usable (EMP attack – you can still clean your nose!). The device is also small, compact and easy to carry.
My only warning is that they can be damaged – mine starting pinching me after I dropped it onto a concrete floor (my fault really).
3. Battery-powered Circular Nose Hair Trimmers
As its name suggests the third option for nose hair trimming runs on batteries and moves in a circular motion due to the shape of its blade. The first ever trimmer I had used this technology, and for many it'll be just fine.
Also there are advantages to having a battery operated trimmer- for one it eliminates having to manually tweeze saving the user effort.
4. Battery-powered Non-circular Nose Hair Trimmers
I'll admit – this one is my favorite.
Among all of the different nose hair grooming tools, this is my personal favorite as it is easiest to use and has never pinched me. It's fast, painless, and so far works without a hitch.
The Philips Norelco Precision Trimmer also delivers good value for money as it comes with different attachments so it can be used not just for nose hair but on other parts of the body as well.
5. Nose Hair Waxing
Waxing is a way to keep nose hair under control for a long period of time (a month?).
PAIN & Expense – OK, so why are you even considering this 🙂 Want to see it what happens when you wax your nose hairs? Click here to see my friend Aaron Marino take one for the team!
If you do decided this is your path you'll need to go to a salon periodically to get it done ……..which means that the convenience of taking care of nose hair removal at home is gone.
6. Nose Hair Tweezers
To put it bluntly, it is the most painful way of grooming nose hair (I make this claim without first hand knowledge of waxing – sorry)
Because of the pain I personally do no recommend tweezing except for one offs or stray hairs.
However, the upside is that tweezers are the easiest tool one can get for nose hair grooming.

Grooming Your Nose Hair Regularly
Create a weekly schedule to control your nose hair growth – more or less depending on your genes!
In my opinion, every man should set aside at least thirty minutes to an hour a week to cut nails, remove hair, and check yourself for abnormal lumps and body developments.
Think prevention and being proactive vs receiving negative feedback and being reactive!
