Plucking Hair. Probably the single best method to take care of small numbers of stray facial hairs is by plucking them with a pair of tweezers. It is a great method of maintaining your eyebrows, plucking the odd hair that grows in between the brows, and those hairs that grow between the brow and the eye lid. Plucking your ear hair is also good but it can be more painful than other facial hairs as they tend to be a little coarser. Invest in a good pair of tweezers that were designed to pluck hair, they will ensure that the hair is properly gripped, enabling the hair to be completly pucked with a short quick tug. Good tweezers can usually be found at any cosmetics counter, or at any beauty salon.

Do not pluck your nose hair. There is a high concentration of bacteria in the nasal passages and plucking nose hairs can lead to painful infections. One alternative is to use a small pair of scissors to trim the hair or there are small electric nose hairs trimmers available, but again you have to be careful that you don't cut the soft tissues in these two areas.
