What's the best nose hair trimmer?

I don't know whether it is a sign of advanced age, or what, but I might need one.

I had a rechargeable beard trimmer that had interchangeable attachments. One of them was a nose and ear hair trimmer. It died on me and I bought a new Remington trimmer when I was done with No Shave November back in late March. I found when I got it home it didn't have an ear and nose hair trimmer. But it took that nearly 6 month old beard off easily and my wife was thankful for that.

The aging process is hard to adapt to at times, but as they say, it is better than the alternative.

I bought a cheap one at Wally World 20 years ago and it still does the job. Instead of the more popular cylindrical style it has a small flat 5 or 6 tine cutting head and looks like the photo below. I don't know the relative merits of all the designs, but I've been happy with this one and have not had a nick or a cut using it.

The needle nose vice grip wrench is not without its drawbacks.

While I have used an electric trimmer that worked well until it died, I now use round nose scissors and just carefully trim the hair. Works pretty well. Took awhile to be able to find a pair, but no battery or motor to go bad.

I usually just put one corner of my hair trimmers in there, first one way, then the other in each nostril.

Ever try tweezing? I just about died.

When that Jazzin' for Blue Jean short came out I cringed every time. the barbarianism takes place at 4:40

I use a hand-held, electric, man-scaping device like this, but mine is corded

I chuck all the attachments that come in the kit & just work with the single adjustment. extended for body hair & close for nose hair. you just need a corner of it to get those pesky nose hairs. Wifey does my back once a year

My electric Phillips Norelco razor has a sideburn trimmer. Works for nasal hair just fine.

My weapon of choice. I don’t use the round attachment, I just jam the thing up into each nare and turn the trimmer. It works great around the ears too. Rinse and repeat. Duracells last a long time in it.

Had a Wahl that burned through batteries and finally broke a plastic tab. Have a Braun now that says it's a professional. Lol, something I never thought I'd be a pro at.
