Best Tweezers for Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs can be an unsightly, irritating nuisance and if all else fails tweezers can be used to gently tease them out.

The best, most effective type of tweezers for doing this are those with pointed tips. which also just happen to be great for removing splinters, glass fragments etc.

We have rounded up some of the best in the low-mid range price bracket.​

Tweezerman Ingrown Hair Splintertweeze

These tweezers from the ever-popular Tweezerman are manufactured in India from surgical quality stainless steel and come complete with a plastic cap to protect the tips.

As you would expect from Tweezerman, they are a good quality product with perfect alignment, hand-filed precision tips and good tension.

​The look and feel of the tweezers is that of a sturdy, well weighted easy to hold product with tapering ends culminating in sharp pointed tips.

Although they are not quite as needle-like as some of their rivals, in my opinion this does actually make them a little more easy to use, especially for fine hairs.

In use, the Tweezerman Ingrown Hair Splintertweeze is effective, its pointed tips are exactly aligned to grasp the hair and tease it out into the open.

They come with the Tweezerman offer of free sharpening service for the life of the tweezers or a 50% off coupon for a comparable replacement, when sharpening is no longer possible.

Retailing at just under $14 - an affordable, low-mid range pair of good quality tweezers.

Things we Liked

  • Reasonably Priced - at $14 for an excellent quality product
  • Well Aligned - no slipping when tweezing fine hairs
  • Use - easier to use than some of the more pointed tips (just a personal preference)
  • Free Sharpening Service - to prolong the life of your tweezers, and a great added bonus
  • 50% off Coupon - to puchase a replacement when they can no longer be sharpened
  • Tip Protection - plastic cap provided

Things we didn't Like

  • Not Much Information - A bit more about use and care for the product would be welcome
  • No Cover - it would be a nice addition to have a protective holder for storage

Tweezers for Ingrown Hair by TweezerGuru

These high quality, low cost tweezers are really good value for money, currently retailing at between $7 and $10.

Manufactured in Pakistanfrom stainless steel, with a coloured coating they are available in 3 colours, black, blue or pink.​

The well aligned, precise tips are extremely pointed and sharp and come with a protective plastic cap for storage and in a plastic sleeve - handy but probably not sufficiently robust to be long-lasting.

They have a sturdy thumb grip, to make them easier to hold and control, and are well calibrated with perfect tension.

​In use, they can grasp the smallest, finest of hairs with their sharp tips, given some practice.  It can be difficult, at first, to use such fine tips if you are used to regular slant-tipped tweezers.

Things we Liked

  • Wide Grip - good design for maximum control
  • Pin-point tips - well aligned and perfect for teasing out ingrowns

They come complete with a plastic cap for tip protection and a handy plastic storage tube.

​In use, they are effective for the purpose of removing ingrown hairs etc., although fiddly and not so efficient at tweezing stray fine hairs.

Tweezees Precision Stainless Steel Tweezers

Tweezees Precision Stainless Steel Tweezers have needle-tip points for removing ingrown hairs and the like from beneath the skin's surface.

They have a sleek, steel finish and straight arms, without the advantage of a wide grip section, which is the one negative that I can see.

The points are perfectly aligned to make grasping fine hairs possible, and very sharp so that once grabbed, they do not slip away!

They are very effective in use, and would make a good addition to the beauty or medical toolkit, being reasonably priced at around $13​.

Included in the price is a handy canvas​ storage bag to keep them nice and safe, and a plastic cap to protect the tips.

Things we Liked

  • Value for Money - Good quality for around $13
  • Needle-sharp Tips - well aligned and sharp to hold hair firmly
  • Canvas Storage Bag - a great added bonus to keep your tweezers in good condition
  • Plastic Cap for Tips

Things we didn't Like

  • Practice Needed - to master the art of tweezing fine hair

Tweezpro Stainless Steel Point Tweezers

Tweezpro's Point Tweezer, manufactured from stainless steel, with a black coating has the finest pin-point tips that you can imagine.

They are perfectly aligned and tensioned, and the arms of the tweezers curve out to form a wide grip area, to make holding them easier, before tapering to the tips.

The overall effect is an attractive looking, practical tweezer, perfect for removing foreign bodies such as ingrowns and splinters etc. from just below the skin.

​Fortunately, as they are so sharply pointed, they come complete with a plastic storage tube for safe-keeping and to keep the tweezers in tip-top condition.

In use, great care surely needs to be taken, however they are very effective in teasing out pesky ingrown hairs.  Due to the needle-thin sharpness of the points, accuracy is needed to actually grasp the hair - that and a good magnifying mirror!

The​y come with a one year money back guarantee and are currently retailing at around $8, so all in all pretty good value for money.

Things we Liked

  • Low Price - just $8 for an efficient pair of tweezers
  • Wide Grip - for hold and control

  • Plastic Storage Tube

Things we didn't Like
