Many of us endure slightly painful treatments in the name of beauty, but few are fearless enough to share video footage of them. Among them is Tracee Ellis Ross, who just had her nose hairs waxed and posted a video on Instagram for her 3.8 million followers.
In the hilarious video, the Black-ish star can be seen with the wax attached to a Q-tip up her left nostril, as a glove-wearing technician rips it out. Ross begs, “Take it out! Take it out. Oh fuck!”
At first, she looks wide-eyed in terror, before breaking into uncomfortable laughter over the entire scenario. In her all-caps caption, she asks, “HAS ANYONE EVER HAD THEIR NOSE HAIRS WAXED?” before dutifully advising her followers, “let this be a lesson to you: just say no.”
We love her candor over it all, but it’s important to note that nose hair waxing might not be such a great idea, and not just because it’s painful, but the FDA advises actually against it. Nose hairs are there for a reason, and they act as a barrier against germs and bacteria. While Ross’ waxing adventures are relatable as hell, here’s a friendly reminder that perhaps it’s better to turn your nose up to some beauty treatments.
