The internet has seen its fair share of bizarre trends that make you question how we’ve got this far as a society, and one of the most recent examples of this is the trend of nose hair extensions… yep, you read that right.

Instagram user @gret_chen_chen started the painfully daft fad by posting the photo of her having glued false eyelashes up her nose to achieve the look, you know, because gluing things up your hooter is a great idea. As opposed to people quickly filing the idea away under ‘to be forgotten about as quickly as possible’, people were quite smitten with the look!

The hashtag #nosehairextensions then quickly exploded across the social media platform with users from all over the world deciding to replicate the look because that’s apparently the world we live in now, and doesn’t that just make you feel great!
The resulting look is one that screams insanity! It looks like their faces are playing host to a nest of spiders, or they’re turning slowly into mole-people.
As someone who’s spent a quite terrifying amount of time over the course of their life keeping their nose hair in check, this recent trend isn’t exactly urging me to chuck away the tweezers just yet!

Some people on the social media platform have managed to retain their senses and have turned their noses up at the trend.
One person (you have to assume half-heartedly) commented ‘Definitely something a bit different’, but another person wasn’t so calm and commented: ‘Utter foolishness !!!’ One man even satirically posted this version of the trend…

Regardless of how freakin’ ridiculous this look is, I can’t stop thinking of how itchy it must be! I can feel my nose twitching just thinking about those long hairs ticking away at the inside of my nostrils… you’re welcome for that image.
