If you’re a man, chances are, you deal with ear hair. About 74 percent of men have visible ear hair, and depending on your personal preferences, it can make you feel unsightly or embarrassed. There are a few standard ways to get rid of it—trimming, plucking or waxing—but when it comes to getting rid of your unwanted hair quickly and efficiently, waxing is the way to go. Below is an overview of ear hair removal techniques. We think you’ll agree that male hair waxing is the best way to go in Gilbert, AZ.
Trimming ear hair
If you’re a bit nervous when it comes to hair removal, trimming is definitely the most pain-free solution. However, it comes with one major drawback: it’s time consuming. Whereas you’ll only have to wax or pluck your hair every few weeks, you’ll likely need to trim every few days. Depending on how fast your hair grows, you may have to trim it every day. That’s a lot of time to spend on most people’s least favorite grooming task.
If you decide to try trimming, get a special ear hair trimmer and only cut the hairs around the edge of the ear and your earlobe. Never poke your trimmer deep into your ear canal—it can cause serious damage.
Plucking ear hair
Plucking is another option, which will buy you a little more time. It usually takes at least two weeks for the hairs to grow back in from the root, which is an improvement over near-daily trimming. On the other hand, it’s surprisingly difficult to pluck your own ear hair. It’s hard to see inside your ear and get close enough to the base of the hair to reduce the pain.
What’s worse is that plucking your ear hair can open you up to potentially dangerous bacterial infections. Although rare, these infections can be painful and perhaps even damage your hearing.
If you decide that you want to try plucking, clean your ears of earwax first. Use a pair of dull tweezers and focus on the outside of your ear. Do not poke your tweezers inside the ear canal.
Waxing ear hair
Finally, there’s waxing. When you work with a professional esthetician, you’ll have a much faster, painless experience, with results that last for weeks at a time. (Some people even report the effects lasting six weeks before they need to make another appointment.)
You should never try waxing your ears at home—after all, it’s very hard to see where the wax is going. However, in addition to the efficiency and long-lasting results, it’s the best way to remove all your ear hair, including the fine “peach fuzz” that can grow around your ear canal. With less upkeep, a safer process and more thorough results, we think waxing is the way to go.
