On a recent sitcom, one character quipped that another didn’t trim his nose hair because he was short and didn’t think people could see up there. While most of us got a good laugh out of that moment, a few of us should have taken it as a wake-up call. Long or excessive nose hair can make an otherwise-polished appearance look lazy and sloppy. Think of it like missing a spot while shaving. It just doesn’t come across well.

A good pair of mustache scissors appropriate for a few strays. A lot of growth is usually better suited for a nose-hair trimmer. Scissors should be sharp, with sufficiently blunted ends to prevent accidental and painful poking.
