Keeping oneself well-groomed is a must to start off the day. In order to keep a pleasant appearance, you may need to equip yourself with a few basic grooming products.
This time, we offer you a fix for nose hair. Nose hair may grow out from time to time, and they need to be removed with care. Of course, you can use scissors as well but the process would be rather difficult and time-consuming. Plucking nose hair is also not a good option as it may cause irritation.
Investing in a nose hair trimmer would certainly be a good choice. Nose hair trimmers provide a quick and easy fix for this problem.
Nose hair trimmers come with a variety of functions such as being water-resistant, having a built-in vacuum system to catch the debris as you trim, a light to assist you while attending to dark places and a number of accessories to help you define your beard and shape your eyebrows as well.
Without further ado, let’s head to the list we have compiled for you of the best nose hair trimmers that we think will be able to serve you just right.
Panasonic is a well-known brand for grooming products. (See top Panasonic men’s shavers) Although this particular model is a tad expensive, it made the top of our list because of a variety of useful functions (discussed below) that are well worth the price.
Unlike other nose hair trimmers on our list, its arched design provides for a very comfortable hold and will fit right into your palm.
Another feature that other trimmers lack but this one does not is that it features an in-built micro vacuum system that collects the trimmed bits to keep them from being left inside the nose and causing a funny feeling or falling on the countertop.
Although other trimmers possess this feature, another cool thing about this trimmer is that it will do a quality job regardless of a dry or wet trim. Whether you’re in a hurry and want to do dry touch-up trims over the sink, or just right after a shower, you don’t need to worry about it.
A small shortcoming of this trimmer is that this trimmer runs with two AAA-size batteries (which are usually more expensive than AA-size batteries) unlike other trimmers on our list which need only one AA-size battery. It would have been great if it came with a rechargeable removable battery though.
This trimmer can be cleaned easily. The tip of the trimmer can be simply held under warm running water while the trimmer is switched on to clean the blades.
This particular model is designed for men, which is pretty much evident from its bold look. It is a nose/ear hair trimmer, but can also be used to remove facial hair and trim eyebrows.
This trimmer may seem a bit loud (around 68 decibels) when compared to other nose hair trimmers (average noise that a trimmer makes is 60 decibels) and you might not like trimming off your ear hair with this, but nevertheless, this shortcoming is negligible.
The products discussed below also made our list because of their useful features and affordable prices.
Wahl Micro Groomsman 5640-600
Next up is the Wahl Micro Groomsman. This trimmer is a perfect choice for traveling because of its very compact size, which looks almost exactly like a pen.
Its length is 8.4 inches (21.34 cm) and width is 2.53 inches (6.43 cm), and it weighs only 2.1 ounces (59.53 grams).
Plus it is the least expensive trimmer on our list.
Other features of the product include a head and eyebrow guide, which is an accessory that comes in the box.
It really lets you choose how you want the fix to be.
This product also offers the “wet/dry” feature and will leave you free of worries of nicking and pulling, and will trim with the same precision.
Since it’s so small and easy to carry, it just takes one AAA-size battery to power it up and you get the first one included in the box.
This trimmer, however, does not have a built-in micro vacuum system like the Panasonic ER-GN70-K which catches the debris as you trim.
That’s probably due to its compact size, but if they could somehow build this model with a vacuum, it would definitely top every other trimmer.
The only downside of this trimmer is that it is somewhat hard to maneuver as it does not have an arched shape like the ER-GN70-K, and the build quality feels fragile. But it is still considered a decent trimmer for the price.
Philips Norelco Nose Trimmer Series 3300
Philips has been known to be one of the best providers of grooming products. The Philips NT-3300 also made our list because of its affordable price (which comes in between the price of the first two products) and a range of functions that excel at the Wahl Micro Groomsman.
The trimmer comes with the ProtecTube technology which prevents skin irritations as the cutter is protected by a thin foil guard with rounded tips. The cutter is also designed to prevent hair from getting caught between two separately moving blades. The blades also do not need to be oiled.
This trimmer also comes with two eyebrow combs (3mm, 5mm) that will allow you to trim your eyebrows evenly without any difficulty.
This trimmer also comes with a soft-touch rubber grip, which makes it very easy to hold even with wet hands. Also, the trimmer and the combs are water-resistant and very easy to clean under the faucet.
It takes one AA-sized battery to run this trimmer (included in the box).
The uniqueness of this trimmer is its design that makes it very easy to reach inside the nose and the ear and allow for a very satisfying trim.
You may think that this trimmer fails to work well sometimes because the trimmer blades do not project far enough, but that is not a flaw in the design.
It is made that way so that the blades do not come in contact with the skin, or cut the hair too short.
That is because nose hairs play a role in preventing dust particles from getting into our airway.
Philips Noreleco Nose Trimmer Series 5100
This trimmer can be considered the big brother of the NT-3300. This trimmer made our list because it allows you to not only trim your nose hair and eyebrows, but also allows you to style your beard and moustache with the extra accessories that come along with it.
However, it is a bit expensive just because of the attachments that come in the box. Other than that, there is not much of a difference between this model and the NT-3300.
This model comes with 3 combs to trim or tidy up the beard and eyebrows for a uniform trim. The box includes a 3mm beard comb, and a 3mm and 5mm eyebrow comb.
Also included in the box is a protective cap that keeps the blades clean from debris and dust.
In the box is a AA battery for direct use, and a soft pouch which helps in carrying around the accessories provided with this trimmer.
The design of this trimmer is pretty much the same, allowing the same comfort and ease while trimming those hard-to-reach hairs inside the nose and the ear.
If you already have a beard trimmer, we recommend you buy the NT-3300.
However if you do not own a beard trimmer, this product provides a good 2 in 1 solution.
ToiletTree Products Nose Hair Trimmer
ToiletTree Products offers a unique trimmer, with a built-in LED light which will really help you when attending to places that require extra attention while trimming.
The feel of the trimmer is quite sturdy as it is made of stainless steel, however, the part that holds the blades is made up of plastic. Don’t be too reckless with it.
The rotary cutting system allows the hair to enter a trimmer tip from the sides and the top.
The design is water-resistant and it can be used while taking a shower without worrying that it could malfunction with a water breach.
This trimmer is cordless and operates with just one AA battery (not included in the box).
It comes with a protective cap and a brush to clean the blades.
With all the good features, a downside of this product is that there is no option to turn the LED light off when using the trimmer.
This trimmer comes at a price close to that of the Philips Norelco NT-3300, but is not as versatile.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is it safe to remove nose hair?
It is safe to remove or trim nose hair, but you should not overdo it. Nose hair serve a variety of functions while you breathe.
- Nose hair retain the moisture in the air when you breathe
- They also prevent dust particles from entering your airways, which reduces allergies and infections
Complications of trimming nose hair improperly or trimming them near the skin would increase the risk of debris getting in your airways, and would dry the mucous membrane inside the nose
Should you cut or trim nose hair?
Cutting with scissors is a risky option, as scissors are sharp and have pointy edges. However, if you do use scissors, always make sure to use one with round tips.
Even with round-tip scissors, great care is needed. Make sure to stand in front of a well-lit mirror, and take your time while cutting them. Be sure to only cut the long ones and not too near the skin.
Using nose hair trimmers is relatively a very easy way to get rid of nose hair. The proper way is to tilt your head back while standing in front of a well-lit mirror, and gently insert the head of trimmer inside your nostril – not all the way up.
The rest is very similar, only cut the ones protruding out of the nostrils, and not too near the skin.
Additionally, make sure to use new batteries and not use old ones, as that will increase the risk of hair pulling due to the motor not being adequately powered up.
Does trimming nose hair make them grow faster?
Cutting or trimming hair, no matter where they are on your body, will not make them grow back faster or thicker. Untrimmed hair has a fine, smooth tip.
After it grows back, its appearance seems thicker and darker.
This is due to the fact that a new hair has not been exposed to the sun, soap and other chemicals yet. But eventually, it will again start to develop a round, blunt tip.
Nose hair trimming is something we have to periodically attend to. It is not a very difficult task, but it definitely needs to be done with care.
Make sure to buy reliable products that you treat your body with, as it is a matter of personal hygiene.
