Nose Hair Clipper

Updated on February 24, 2010

If you're an aging guy, chances are that you have some nose and ear hairs that are starting to grow a little bit too long. (Maybe even some eyebrows too). By age 40, you'll usually start to see hair poking out from some different places, you don't want it to poke out. And the older you get the worse it will get, so you might as well start taking care of it now. It might seem embarrassing to buy a nose hair trimmer, but lots of guys have one. Besides women have been removing hair from all sorts of places for a long time, so you guys can do it too. You do need some hair in your nose, it helps to filter out dust. Sort of like a pre-filter for air before it gets to your lungs. You don't want to get rid of all of it completely. You don't need that hair on your ears though so go crazy with that. Nose hair trimmers are designed to cut the hair in your nose, without cutting you. If you use scissors then you always have that chance of poking yourself. So do it safely with a trimmer.

The trimmers work with a small set of blades in a stainless steel or chrome protector. They're shaped like a probe to fit the inside of your nostrils and guide the hairs into the cutter. They're very similar to the way hair clippers and beard trimmers work, but beard trimmers aren't really suited to get in those small spaces. Nose trimmers aren't really suited to trim a beard either. Beard hair is too thick for them to handle. All of the higher quality trimmers can be washed in water while they are running. You wouldn't want to use an electric nose hair trimmer that you plug in, if it's going to be in water. Your nose trimmers can double as ear trimmers too, although you might have to use a mirror for that, in fact most are marketed as a nose and ear hair trimmer. Most of the major beard trimmer manufacturers make nose trimmers, Norelco, Remington, Wahl, and the newer Mangroomer essential nose and ear hair trimmer.

Panasonic ER430K Vacuum Nose/Ear Hair Trimmer

This trimmer has a rotary blade type trimming head that uses a circular blade for hair cutting. You can get close to the skin safely when you do your trimming. It's got a safety cone to guide the hairs into the cutter, so the blades never get close to your skin, so you stay safe. Like a lot of the trimmers the blades are stainless steel to help prevent rusting. A cool little feature of this trimmer is a built in vacuum to suck up the hairs and keep you from breathing them in. It's waterproof so you can immerse it in water for easy cleaning, or take it into the shower with you. It's not rechargeable, but it does use 1 AA battery that lasts for 90 minutes. It's probably better that way if you're going to be putting it in water or taking it into the shower. The Panasonic ER421kc Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer, looks about the same, and it's got about the same reviews.

Nose Hair Trimmer Reviews

Remington Nose Hair Trimmer

Looking on Amazon, none of the Remington nose hair trimmers gets great reviews. The electric shavers get more of the better reviews, but I guess the quality isn't as good on the nose hair trimmers.

Wahl Rechargeable Nose Hair Trimmer

Wahl makes an ear nose and eyebrow trimmer in addition to the usual hair and beard trimmers they make. Reviews say that it holds a charge pretty well. They've got several models some of them have beard touch up and sideburn attachments, you wouldn't want to do your to do your whole beard, just touch it up. It's also waterproof so you can rinse it out or use it in the shower.

Norelco Nose Hair Trimmer

This is another trimmer that's liked by reviewers. The trimmer has a guarded blade system that they say can get close to the skin without the stubble. Users seem to like the curved shape, and the soft grip. It runs from 2 AA batteries. It's got trimming and eyebrow combs. There arent' any Phillips nose hair trimmers listed on Amazon, I'm guessing because Phillips shave division is called Norelco, so sometimes they're listed as Phillips-Norelco. Supposedly the Norelco name will eventually be dropped for the Phillips name alone.

Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer

This is kind of a cool little trimmer, it doesn't use any batteries. Basically you twist the bottom of the trimmer and it cuts the hairs without ever cutting you. It can do ear hair too, and most users say it's not that awkward. In fact several of them say it's the best nose hair trimmer out there, it very highly rated, and best selling.
