Hair sprouting where no hair has been...

Just have it shaved, my barber does my eyebrows, ears and nose hair. I even have hairy knuckles (stop sniggering at the back) plus hairy back. Actually I rather like bananas as well. :D

Come on admit it BB you are trying to Walt as a professional football play so need to remove all you body hair. But surely this is the wrong forum because only non-league players are old'n'bold or is it a very clever play on words and you mean old'n'bald?

I think gravity has some kind of effect on my hair... it's leaving my head and coming out through my nose. Can I recommend not plucking nose hair while driving? It's hard to see when your eyes are watering too much.

The plucking of nostril hairs does produce quite the most exquisite pain and eye-watering! With me it's followed by a violent bout of sneezing to boot! Definitely not an occupation for when at the helm, ..... unlike smoking, texting, talking on the 'phone etc etc.

On the basis that my hair now doesn't seem to get to the top of my head anymore, I've just grown a beard. Had it now since the end of August - it grows like buggery - I took it in for a trim on Tuesday. It got a Number 3! And nearly an inch was cut off.

I regard it as my new form of man test....yanking out by hand a 1 inch long,girder width nose hair on a daily basis is the new character building exercise for us oldies.

Then onto the hair sprouting from inside the ears...keeps me amused for hours.

The fcukers on the end on my nose are fun too. I get about three there but they have to get to the right length before I can get hold of them well enough for that final tweak.

WTF does one do about this? Just shave / pluck?
I had never heard the term monobrow or its Neanderthal connections until it was associated with a member of Oasis. I tried shaving out the nose bridge but it grew back thicker, so I started to pluck - by hand. Once it was done - if it were done - then twas done well (sorry I did Macbeth for O-Level English), thereafter I just pluck the biggest on an infrequent basis to keep on top. They are now much softer and shorter.

Regarding the main brows, I know that if I leave a haircut until the brows are back like Dennis Healey's I am overdue a haircut (btw DON'T try plucking the main brows cos they come back white and you'll be forever plucking them too. and as somebody says, like girders). I get my hairdresser (bent as the proverbial nine bob note but he does a good job of Wor Lass's hair and it saves me another journey - and he employs fit lasses who often as not get to attend to my needs while he looks after Zero Alpha on the domestic command net) to clipper my brows right down. So long as there is enough colour remaining to show the brows, you can take it down to about a grade 2 and nobody will notice.

Lighter fluid, box of matches, sorted.
I think it was Michael Palin crossing the Sahara, stopped at a barber shop somewhere in Morocco or Algeria and had his ear hair removed. Barber took a lighted taper and flicked it at Palin's ear hair. Burned the hair right out, too quickly to heat up the skin.

I've just grown a beard. Had it now since the end of August - it grows like buggery - I took it in for a trim on Tuesday. It got a Number 3! And nearly an inch was cut off.
About ten years ago I removed the porno tash I'd had since the mid-70s. Last month I developed a cold sore on the top lip. Deciding not to shave the area until it healed, it gave me an excuse to try and regrow it. I took a lot of stick during the stubbly phase until finally admitting defeat when it came out in club colours (red and white in equal proportions). All smooth again I am afraid.

The fcukers on the end on my nose are fun too. I get about three there but they have to get to the right length before I can get hold of them well enough for that final tweak.
I find that grabbing the whole bush growing out of an ear, I can pluck a significant number in a single pull. then diminishing returns until I take a pair of scissors to the rest until I let the young lady (see above) loose with a trimmer. Or should that be a strimmer?
