I am a guy that has reached the age that I have ear hair. I try to keep the outer part under control with my rotary shaver but I am asking if there is anyone with better suggestions for the outer canal? Party because of glasses, sometimes I can't see as well as I would like as well. Are those nose and ear hair clippers any good? I hate seeing guys with this stuff growing out of their ears. I am trying to take care of my appearance. I may be 60 something but not going down without a fight. LOL

Welcome to the club. I'm 83 and will be 84 in a couple of months if I do not have another Heart Attack soon.

I use a small magnifying mirror and tweezers for a 2-3 times a week removal......also hate the bad look they give.

My dad at 86 would not let me pull his out...said it hurt.

Nose hair also a problem for me. Left alone they turn white and stiff like bailing wire so I PULL them out.

There was a time decades ago when a barber shop would trim the hair during a hair cut session......I'm bald so that leaves me out.

Mr. CSD has all of that taken care of when he gets a hair cut.

Nose and ear hair clippers work pretty well. My husband has a trimmer that has a nose and ear attachment, it's a round attachment that you really can't cut yourself with so you don't have to be able to see the area you're trimming.

I had thought about buying the Nose/Ear trimmer. Drawback is that it only cuts the surface while the roots of the hair are still there....same as a mans beard that needs to be cut every day.

I have the electric razor and twice a week will use the regular twin blade razor for a closer shave or not shave at all for 2-3 days in order to clean my skin with a New blade.

By mid afternoon I can feel/tell the difference of what method I used that AM.
