Wax on / Wax off

Elizabeth Montgomery Bewitched


I was hanging out with a friend on Saturday, and she kept twitching and wriggling her nose...kind of like Samantha on Bewitched. She KEPT DOING IT. It was driving me bonkers. She finally fessed up and said she had her nose hair waxed a while back, and that the hairs were tickling her as they grew back. I balked and said, "You get your NOSE HAIR WAXED?!  Is that really necessary?!" She said it was. And then I went home and looked VERY CAREFULLY in the mirror and noticed that my nose hairs might need a trim (or a wax?) someday. CRIPES.

I LOVE YOUR VISUALS!!!! ahahahahahhahahahahahhahasd;lkjasdflkj... dying.

You know my Italian husband is hairy... and while he does get his eyebrows threaded, he uses a trimmer on his nose hairs... WAXING nose hairs might be the most tear-inducing thing on the planet.

Bwahahahaha!!! Too effin funny...you know...I never had this issue until recently. i.e. 30's. I trim, not wax. Still lol'ing over here....

My wax person did it for me once as a 'perk' it didn't hurt and I don't' remember it tickling when it grew back in.

Kitty Stampede said...

OH MAN!!!! that would flipping kill. I would sneeze for eternity.

argh to annoying body hair.

Lynn said...

I don't care if my nose hairs grow all the way out of my nose, I'll not have them ripped out. No. Never.

Lorena said...

Forget it.
Maybe if they were long enough to braid - but I am not getting those hairs waxed.
It's like people make YOU aware of their issues and then YOU think that you have those same issues.
It's like that damn DOVE commercial that tells you to use whitening deodorant for stained armpits !?
Seriously someone has too much time on their hands if they are looking at their armpits and nose hair.

this is scaring the sh*t out of me.

oh and the captcha, coincidentally, is SORES. wtf!

Daniela said...

the second image is awesome. i love her.
I once got my upper lip waxed and the woman went as high as the bottom part of my nostrils. not fun.

Felicia said...

I've had my nose hairs waxed too and it's not worth it!! It sounds gross but it's much easier to stick a small pair of scissors up there and go to town. Haha!

heather said...

lol! i don't think i would ever want to do that. although sometimes i get a longish straggler and i pluck it. and then i start to sneeze. this post is making my nose itch!

hmm, and my captcha is blesser, as in bless her post sneeze?

Trissta said...

OMG. No kidding?! I would cry if I ever had to get my nose hairs waxed... good thing I've got blonde hair. Curse of the redhead. Blonde eyebrows, blonde eyelashes, blonde everything but the carpet and what's on top. lmaoooooo

Much Love,
Trissta

Haha omg, I could not even imagine getting my nose hairs waxed. I can't even imagine putting wax IN my nose. Please please please stay in line nose hairs...

TK Kerouac said...

Loved that show and the gif
how do I save it?
getting my nose hair waxed tomorrow with my eyebrows.
Hurts less than an bikini wax.

bananas. said...

i didn't learn about nose waxing until i worked for a salon & spa in college that did just that. it's crazy weird!!!

first they fill the nostril with wax and wait til it hardens. then they rip it out...along with all the nose hairs! HA!

not gonna lie...i kinda wanted to try it but never did.

Annabelle said...

Well fabs...one more thing to hate about aging.

Kaz said...

I get my brows and upper lip threaded. I'm really used to it now, and it doesn't really hurt much. My beautician has trimmed my nose hair with teeny tiny nail scissors before, but there's no way I'd let wax or thread go there!

Dancing Branflake said...

Hahaha! I would never ever do that. I say that because I cannot imagine how incredibly painful that most have been. Ouch!

Caroline said...

Holy crap! Ouch!!! Only in LA...lol.

Claire Kiefer said...

Lately I've noticed that I have some hairs up the ol' schnoz as well . . . not willing to wax em, though! And somehow I doubt any of us would look as cute as Samantha wiggling our noses from the awkwardness of hair growing back. Yikes.

Jessica ( frellathon ) said...

Well you learn something new everyday and today I learned there is such a thing as nose hair waxing. Wtf?!!!
Why not just trim? Who came up with this and dear god that must hurt more than having lady parts and butt hole waxed.

Kathryn said...

Can't imagine anyone waxing their nose hairs...except maybe a werewolf!

diane said...

Can't help wondering if your friend is more prone to colds now.
Don't know where you found that pic of Elizabeth Montgomery, but it's great.

Marian said...

If I looked as good as Samantha wiggling my nose, I might consider...but I'm pretty sure it would be more along the link of me going wrist deep in my nose to fix the itch. Too much??

Kellie said...

OMG that would hurt so bad! Never! I'd definitely go for the trim instead of the wax! OWWW!

Heidi said...

Horrors. I'm with the sneezers here. Worse yet, I fear it'd bleed somehow. They make nosehair trimmers for a reason! They do a fine job.

Alisa said...

I had no idea that they waxed there! Ouch!

Kristine said...

It's only a matter of time for me before I start sprouting tufts of hair out of my ears and on top on my shoulders. Trying to control my eastern European hair is a full time job but I haven't done nose waxing yet. Better add it to the list...

Liam Ebden said...

Heheh, nice GIF! Anyway, the nose hairs can be a pretty minor detail, but work can be done on it. Waxing the nose hairs is more or less like an alternative to trimming them, no?

Kathryn said...

I have heard of nose-hair clippers for men, but had never heard of this before.

I had my legs waxed once before and would not do it again. I would have to be turning it a werewolf before I would ever consider resorting to this.
