Best tweezers UK: Get rid of ingrown hairs, rogue eyebrows or tidy up your sprouting nose and ear hairs
Whether you’re looking to keep your ingrown hairs in check or tidy up your rogue eyebrow, nose, ear, or chin hairs, we’ve put the best tweezers to the test
Tweezers. One pair is just like another, right? Sadly not. They come in a range of shapes, sizes and prices and can be used for a multitude of things.
This includes keeping ingrown hairs in check, tidying up eyebrows, getting rid of your rogue nose and ear hairs, and even pulling out verrucas and warts.
We don’t recommend doing the latter though…or if you’re going to do it, make sure you sanitise your tweezers before using them again on your eyebrows or other hairs on your body. Especially if you’re tackling ingrown hairs in your nether regions!
Below we’ve listed what we consider to be the best tweezers in the UK to suit all budgets and hopefully satisfy all hair-related tasks.
We also explain a bit more about the different types of tweezers and what they’re good for at the bottom of the list.

There’s a reason why Tweezerman continually top the list of best tweezers, and they win countless awards. It’s because they’re super accurate and super hard-wearing.

They won’t last as long as the more expensive entries in our best tweezers list, nor will they be as accurate meaning you may nick the skin.
However, for just £2 for these Boots straight-edge tweezers, you can’t really complain. Plus, if you’re looking for tweezers that will only be used every now and then, then these are more than good enough. They even come with an easy-to-hold grip, which other tweezers don’t.

3. Luxury Buy: Regine Diamond Slant Tweezers
£75 | Buy now from Amazon
If you thought the Tweezerman tweezers were pricey, cop a load of these Diamond Slant Tip tweezers from Regine Switzerland.
No, £75 isn’t a typo or mistake. They cost so much because they’re engineered by master Swiss craftsmen Regine and each pair goes through a 40-step finishing process before being tested under a microscope. This is to make sure each pair is perfectly aligned, super sharp and are at “the perfect angle” – something the brand prides itself on and claims is the reason why these tweezers are so great.
In fact, Regine claims promises that these tweezers grip the hair and pull it from the root every time. Not only does this save time, it should also reduce the pain. Regine also offers a Lifetime Guarantee so you’ll only need to fork out this spenny price one.

4. Rubis Tweezer Classic Slanted
£23.95 | Buy now
If you want the precision and Swiss-engineered design of Regine’s tweezers for a more affordable price, give Rubis a go.
In fact, Rubis goes a step further than Regine Switzerland because it puts its tweezers through a 45-step process. Five quality steps more than Regine.
The slanted tip of the Rubis Classic Slanted Tweezer means they’re great for sorting out your brows, or for plucking random stray hairs from your nose or ears.
Every pair is made of a single piece of surgical steel and they’re super light as well as being acid-proof, rustproof, and anti-magnetic.
5. Best tweezers kit: Tweezerman Toolmates
£29.90 | Buy now
This kit gives you three of the best tweezers for a relatively low price (all things considered) of £30. This may seem like a lot but considering our Editor’s Pick from the same Tweezerman brand comes in at £19, get three for less than twice the price doesn’t feel so bad.
This kit includes what the brand calls the Slant Tweezer, the Ingrown Hair Splintertweeze as well as a precision razor. The former promise to be “perfectly aligned” and come with a hand-filed, 25-degree angled precision tip.
As its name suggests, the Ingrown Hair Splintertweeze has an ultra-sharp, pointed tip that can help lift and remove anything embedded under the skin, including ingrown hairs as well as spots (again, we don’t recommend the latter, but we’ve done…).
The precision razor is then perfect for trimming the hairs between your brows, trimming around your moustache or beard, and tidying up your hairline. It’s also good for intimate areas or smoothing off your chest. Just be careful, and hold them at an angle to get the best results.
They come with a magnetic holder which we never use. In fact, we think it looks like a public urinal so we ditched it pretty quick, but it’s a nice touch should you want it.
6. Best tweezers for ingrown hairs: Tweezer Guru Pointed Tweezers
£19.99 | Buy now from Amazon
Speaking of pointed, super-sharp tweezers, these from Tweezer Guru are perfect for removing ingrown hairs, splinters, facial hair, and more.
They’re made from durable stainless steel and this makes them very sharp so we don’t advise going anywhere near your nether regions with these!
Eyebrow tweezers types explained
Below we explain what each type of tweezer type is called, and what they’re each best used for.
Pointed Tip Tweezers
Best tweezers for: Ingrown hairs
Pointed tip tweezers are best for precise plucking, which makes them great for getting rid of stubborn hairs or unhooking and grabbing ingrown hairs.
Straight Tip Tweezers
Best tweezers for: Large areas
If your hair is thick and stubborn, opt for straight-tip tweezers. They’re good for grabbing multiple hairs at the same time which also makes them ideal for saving time.
Slanted Tip Tweezers
Best tweezers for: Eyebrows
Slanted tip tweezers are some of the most popular because they offer the benefits of both pointed and straight tip tweezers in one.
Crab Tip Tweezers
Best tweezers for: Pain-free tweezing
The flat design of crab tweezers means they’re great for grabbing hold of hairs while lowering the chance of you also grabbing your skin.
