If you thought you’d seen it all in the beauty world – a la squiggly brows, and glitter tongues – then think again, because nose hair extensions are actually a thing.
We first reported on this crazy beauty trend back in 2017, and sadly it doesn’t appear to have gone away just yet.
The hashtag #nosehairextensions has been used over 400 times on Instagram, with more and more people sharing photos and videos attempting the bizarre look.
Given that it now, somehow, seems to have actually increased in popularity, with one online video gaining almost 150k views, the practice does come with a warning.
The natural hairs in your nose do actually serve an important purpose, from catching dust to nasty bacteria, so using lash glue to stick extensions up your nostrils might damage your original hairs, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
The trend that just won’t go away
Back in October 2017, we were first made aware of someone by the name of @gret_chen_chen on Instagram, who was attaching lash extensions to her nostrils.
Her caption at the time summed it up simply: “nose hair extension #nosehair #lashes #extensions #beauty #selfie #eyelashextensions #falselashes.”
While there were a few others daring to try out the idea back then, we definitely didn’t think it was the kind of trend that would last.
At least we had hoped it wouldn’t.
Oh, how wrong we were!
