I'm sure many of you have the same affliction as I - I need to trim my ear, brow, and nose hair or else I look unpresentable.

What type of trimmer do you all recommend for this? Scissors, electric, or (heaven forbid) a blade.

I have an Andis clipper and trimmer kit. My wife uses them to buzz-cut the hair on my head, and I use the trimmer to get the hair on the outside of my ears.

Then I use a Norelco nose and ear trimmer to finish the inside of my ears and to get the hair in my nostrils.

These can be found at Amazon and elsewhere.

Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer

This has worked well for me. Great quality Stainless Steel. Requires both hands, comes apart for cleaning (not sure if thats necessary tho). I have seen an identical unit under the Dovo name called the Klippette. Should be less than $20.00.

Hello there,

I use a cheap WAHL nose trimmer. I had a more expensive Norelco, which I misplaced while on vacation and replaced it with the WAHL; which as I said works equally as well as the more expensive models.

Eyebrows, I do not touch them on my own. I recommend going to a professional, either a barber or esthetician, if you don't want to grow mustaches over your eyes.

As far as ear hair is concerned, I manage those on my own. I do not trim them, I pluck them on a bi-daily basis. In that way they never grow so much as to be noticeable and are always easy to manage.

Whatever road you choose, there is nothing worse than a man un-kept, for example: uncontrollable hair growing out of the ear or nose orifices, rearing its head like a cobra ready to strike.

Happy Shaving.

Sam

I picked up a cheap Wahl MicroGroomsman for under $10. Can trim nose hair, trim hairline fr sideburns or around ears etc and also an attachment to trim eyebrows to uniform length. So basically it is the size of a long sharpie marker and comes with 3 attachments and cost under $10. While im sure it is not the best, it works very well for my needs. I grabbed it at Walgreens. It takes one AAA battery (which it comes with a AAA lithium). I have had it for several months, still the same battery it came with.

+1 I use mine regularly. It's great for eyebrows. I just hate the fact that at a certain age you start having hair growing where it doesn't belong.

I just found out about this and want one. It really works well hey? I've got a beard trimmer with small nose attachment but I can't use it, it tickles too much. The crazy amount of vibration immediately makes my eyes water and me sneeze.

Apparently that's not the case for some (see manscaping thread). Biggrin

The Groom Mate works great! I've had one for several years and it's nonsense and no-fuss.

I use a Remington trimmer with duel heads (round & flat) which works great for nose,ear,etc. Very inexpensive purchase at Walmart. Runs on one AA battery which lasts a long time.

I use a Norelco trimmer to trim my moustache, eyebrows, ear, etc. I use a small pair of scissors for the nose. It has a rechargeable battery and was purchased at Wally World.

I have a Norelco sideburn/mustache trimmer that has a nose/ear hair trimmer attachment as well. Not the best for nose/ear use but great if I ever grow my mustache again.

I intend to pick up the Groom Mate. I like that it does not require either electric nor batteries to operate. Although I don't have a problem, I don't like that it requires both hands. Should I develop arthritis, etc that would be a problem.

I grabbed a Wahl Micro GroomsMan yesterday. It gets the job done, both ears and nose.

$10 at the H.E.B. (grocery store).

I am kind of ashamed to admit this. But, i have two nose hair trimmers.


I have one which I keep for travel, which never leaves my luggage. This one is the Groom Mate Platinum. It is small, sturdy, and doesn't need an batteries. It does a decent job, but to be honest it can be kind of slow and awkward to use.

The next one I have is a batter powered Panasonic trimmer. It trims really quickly and efficiently-- but is kind of on the large side for travel. Also, it doesnt seem that well made.

this site has a pretty good collection of nose hair trimmers

I'm the sort of neanderthal that rips out nose and ear hair with my fingertips; works amazingly well for me. If I trim my nose hair, the trimmed shaft is so itchy it's unbearable.
My wife the beautician waxes my eyebrows about once a month.
