At what point do nose hairs become too long?

    How do you feel about nose hairs?
    Like 'em, dislike, no oppinion?

    Is there a length of nose hair which bothers you? Is it the sight of any hairs or only when they begin sneaking out of the nose into clear view even when you are opposite the person with the annoying growth? Perhaps only when they reach to the upper lip or at another point, or maybe you like them all.


    Do you trim yours or let 'em run wild?

    I do this too - and I trim them before I go out for a date.

    They get trimmed closely every few days. I refuse to turn into my Dad with a bush of hair growing out of every orifice.

    when you can braid it...its too long....

    or people tell you you look like Hitler...

    had a coworker years ago with this problem, when you talked to him your eyes were drawn to it....it was that bad, so we all chipped in and bought him (anonymously) a nose hair trimmer....he got the hint.

    One day my Internist set up an appointment with a surgeon to discuss having yea olde gall bladder removed (arthroscopy via my belly button). When the surgeon came into the consulting room where I had been waiting, thumbing through 15 year-old copies of Nat Geo for an hour, I immediately focussed on his thick, neatly groomed set of golden brown nose hairs jutting out almost a half inch from both nostrils. The surgeon was about 40 years old. I simply excused myself and left. That "non" appointment cost me $185.

    As for my own hirsute nostrils, I yank the little buggers out with thumb and forefinger. This can be a great advantage when stuck driving all night long and you need something to keep you startled and awake. Just yank out a nose hair every 15 to 20 minutes. When you're out of nose hairs it's time to pull over and rest.

    I trim mine when necessary. It seems a basic part of grooming to me. I don't much care what other men do - whatever they are happy with.

    Trimming is better than plucking because 1) it preserves some of the function of the hair, and 2) plucking greatly increases the risk for an infection.

    They don't. I trim them the minute I notice any. The rechargeable groomer I have has different heads you can swap out depending upon what you're trimming. One head is a nose/ear hair trimmer.
    No bats in the belfry here.:biggrin1:
