Nose hair has many important functions. It protects us by acting as a defense against foreign objects entering our nasal cavity. It filters out particles and helps us to stay healthy, warding off unwanted entry of allergens. There’s even been a study that shows a link between increased nose hair and a decrease in asthma, with the belief that the more nose hair you have, the better protected your nasal passages are from pollutants that make it difficult to breath. These are all important functions of nose hair, but the key takeaway is nose hair. As in, hair that should be inside your nose, not sticking out of it. If you’ve got nose hair that’s making a debut to the outside world, you need trimmers.

There are several ways that nose hair can be removed. Waxing is an option, with salons and spas offering nose hair waxing services. At-home kits can also be purchased to do your hot wax removal from the comfort of your own bathroom. Tweezing is also another common form of nose hair removal, which many people prefer because it can be done in private. But one major concern both these options have in common in the ‘OW’ factor. As in, OW, that really, really, really hurts.

Waxing and tweezing aren’t ideal nose hair removal systems because you don’t want to completely rid your nasal passages of hair, but simply trim it. By waxing or tweezing, you’re removing all the hair that is designed to protect you from dust and debris.

Trimming nose hair with scissors is an option, but this can result in cuts and scrapes from pointy scissors. The skin inside your nose is fragile and even a small tear in the skin can be painful and dangerous, with dirt easily getting in. That’s why we love nose hair trimmers.

Easy to use, safe and pain-free, nose hair trimmers are designed to trim the nose inside your hair without completely removing it, making you feel confident in how you look, while also helping to keep allergy season away. Here are three great nose hair trimmers that will have you looking and feeling your best.

1. Panasonic Nose Hair Trimmer

Designed to trim nose, ear and facial hair, the Panasonic Nose Hair Trimmer uses a curved and hypoallergenic stainless-steel blade that is designed to fit in your nostrils and trim hair without pulling. Pros of the trimmer include its wet and dry abilities, which means the nose trimmer is safe enough to use in the shower. We also like that the trimmer has a Vortex Cleaning System that pulls water in and spins it through the trimmer when cleaning, helping to clear out hair. The trimmer can be charged with a cord or with one AA battery and can last up to 90 minutes on a full charge.

The trimmer weighs only 2.4 ounces, our lightest option, making it idea for travel. The Panasonic Nose Hair Trimmer is an affordable option, but many customers found that it only lasted a few months before the blades began making noise.

2. Philips Norelco Multigroom Series 3000

With 13 pieces that can tackle any type of hair, Philips Norelco Multigroom Series 3000 is great for people looking for a trimmer that can do it all. Featuring a nose hair trimmer that also cuts ear hair and trims eyebrows, the Philips also comes with three hair trimming guards, three beard trimming guards, a stubble guard, an accessory storage bag, and a cleaning brush.

Using DualCut technology, the blades sharpen themselves while being used and can be cleaned with water. The rechargeable trimmer can last one hour on a single charge, with a full charge requiring eight hours. The Philips is our most expensive option, but it’s ideal for anyone who is looking for more than just a nose hair trimmer.
