Would You Get Your Nose Waxed?

I've had noses on the mind lately. First, I wanted to know what you think about nose piercings, and now, I want to know what you think about nose waxing. Say what? A few years back, my friend, who was a spa educator for a product line, volunteered me to be the guinea pig in one of her training courses, which involved a presentation of the procedure.

While it was a little strange to have someone shove a warm wax ball up my nose, pinch, and pull, it wasn't too bad. Surprisingly, I was pleased with the results, especially since she only removed the hairs closest to the surface, as opposed to the ones that, you know, are important for keeping bacteria and dirt away. How about you? Would you take the plunge into nose hair waxing, or is this service just snot for you? Ugh.

Ouch!! The nose is a very sensative area. I would hate to think I would ever grow nose hair long enough for a waxing. Nope, not happening!

No way. Nose hair is natural filtering system and without them the gunk just goes into your body Exactly.

No way. Nose hair is natural filtering system and without them the gunk just goes into your body, and I live in London so that's a big issue. Have you tried washing out your nose after tube journey? It's pure black. I did notice that some women of southern original have actual excess hair on their noses, so that could be waxed off.

I am not sure that wouldn't do it at least once but Bella I am surprised that you didn't find it painful. I have pulled just a single hair out with tweezers before and nearly cried.

I heard you can die from an infection in that area - the infection can spread to the brain rapidly.

um, no. but if amy winehouse and blohan got it done, the balls of wax would probably have a street value of a couple hundred bucks :P

Weird...I can't say I've done it, but if I thought I needed it, or it was offered to me for free/cheap, I'd probably do it!

I can't imagine getting my nose waxed...but I guess the process would not be that different from getting your upper lip waxed, right? Now a days, waxing and laser-ing are getting more popular by the minute...hair just isn't as accepted as it used to be. If I needed to get my nose waxed, I would...I mean I'm sure the end result would be worth the five minutes of embarrassment.

I didn't think I needed it (and, really, I still don't think I NEED it), so I was a bit embarrassed when I went to get my lip waxed and the woman did this to me with no warning! I didn't notice much of a difference, but, to each his/her own, I guess.
