    Do you pluck them or trim them?

    I suppose just leaving them sprouting out of your nostrils is an option but mine tickle too much so I have to pluck them when they start doing that.

    Has anyone switched from plucking to trimming? I like plucking them and the satisfaction of ripping out those little vibrating bastards. Does hurt a bit though.

    I pick them, if they're attached to the boogers.

    Plucking the hairs is discouraged because it can lead to infections. Trimming is the way to go. There are tiny scissors that do a much more effective job than the mechanical trimmers.

    My boyfriend handles that chore. Sometimes he plucks them but he mostly trims them with scissors. He handles my ear hairs and eyebrows too. He's my personal in-home spa attendant. He's a keeper.

    My beard trimmer has a nose hair attachment, takes only a few seconds and only need to do it like every 3 months or something, probably less.

    The older you get the more weird places you have to worry about hair removal.

    In my 30's I had to start trimming my nose hair, in my 40's I had to start trimming some excessively long eyebrow hairs and now in my 50's I've had to start trimming my ear hair.

    I have no idea where I'll have to start trimming in my 60's but I'm sure it will be someplace exciting!

    I would never pluck any of those hairs, however. It seems like it would be way too painful.

    I work with some older gent who doesn't do anything with them, it's like two huge bushes coming out of his nose.... it's so distracting to look at.

    I used to work with a guy whose nose hairs were so thick when he breathed it sounded like wind through pine trees.

    See this is exactly why I pluck them out!

    In the last year or so I've started to get these wild eyebrow hairs. I trim them. I was always impressed with how crazy Admiral Zumwalt's eyebrows were; they were like that back in the 70s. (I didn't know, or forgot, that his first name was Elmo. How cool of a name is that?)

    I have them waxed every few weeks; no pain at all and you can breathe!

    I use a battery operated trimmer for my nose hair and internal ear hair. For the external ear hair, I use a Norelco electric shaver. For my wild eyebrows, I use barber clippers with a fitting to prevent cutting too short. It's a nuisance.

    A barber once told me that as we age, we don't lose hair; it just migrates.

    I've heard that before but I remain sceptical. I find plucking them rewarding. My ear hairs though, they're tough and have deep roots so I have to trim them.
