Tracee Ellis Ross Waxes Her Nostrils, Shares the Painful Video on Instagram: 'Just Say No!'

Posted on


Tracee Ellis Ross is very open with social media following. And she took that openness one step further with a TMI beauty video that proves once again beauty is pain.

The Golden Globe Award-winning actress decided to get the inside of her nostrils waxed and left nothing to the imagination when she shared the painful process she endured with her fans on Instagram.

In a clip posted Tuesday, the actress laid back with her head on a pillow and had a Q-tip pushed into her nostril with the hot wax on it. Sound painful? Well that was the easy part.

Before Ross could catch her breath, her waxer squeezed her two nostrils together, grabbed the end of the Q-tip not lodged inside her nose and pulled it out as the star screamed in a mixture of fear and pain. “Take it out! Take it out. Oh f—!” she yelled as the wax was pulled out of her nostril. (Warning: the clip below is not for the squeamish.)
