These are the neatest nose hair trimmers for men

From multi-purpose grooming gadgets to manual nose hair trimmers, these are the tools you need to keep your nostrils tidy

Among the many, many downsides of lockdown (instant coffee, burnt banana bread, no cinema, Zoom etc.), the worst thing has to be all the mirrors. Seriously, they’re everywhere. Hallways. Bedrooms. Bathrooms. Even the chrome of the kettle in the right light.

Why are they so bad? Because we can’t stop looking at ourselves. Oh, the minutes we’ve wasted decrying hairlines and prodding blemishes! “Is that a new freckle?”, “Are my eyes not the same colour?”, “Good god, is that a grey hair?” And the worst discovery we’ve made on this endless parade of primping and preening? Nose hairs.

That’s right. Wiry and insidious, nose hairs taunt us from beyond tweezers’ reach. They grow, with immunity and impunity, just outside the jurisdiction of our beard trimmers — waiting to protrude at the worst, most embarrassing moment. But don’t despair. Hope has whirred to life in the form of nostril hair trimmers; bathroom gadgets tuned to the task of trimming our hardest-to-reach hairs. From the multi-purpose to the manual, we’ve rounded up the best below…

Wahl Micro Finisher Lithium Detail Trimmer

With a name longer than even the unsightliest nose hair, Wahl delivers our first recommended grooming gadget. This is a titanium-finished trimmer, with cordless operation and removable, rinsable blades. Small and compact, it’s the perfect pocket-trimmer to ensure you remain sufficiently smooth and presentable at all times.

Philips Nose Trimmer Series 5000

Whatever happened to the other 4,999 ‘Series’, we’ll never know. But, with a perfectly-placed protective skin guard and effortlessly fast-moving dual-sided cutter, we wouldn’t be surprised if Philips had thrown out thousands of models to refine this design so effectively. Particularly welcome is its soft touch; gently trimming without ever pulling.

Kai Seki Magoroku Rotary Nose Hair Cutter

Here’s an exciting option; a manual nose hair trimmer. One step up from nail scissors — but not as ferocious as a mechanical gadget — Kai’s Seki Magoroku rotary cutter has a chrome-plated iron outer body and an inner shaft crafted from Japanese stainless steel. It’s slick, smart, and does the job just as well as any battery-powered trimmer.
