These days, it seems like everyone is getting piercings. What might have been considered odd fifty years ago is now just a matter of course for many members of the population — particularly young women.
Perhaps the new most popular type of piercing out there is nose piercing. Nose piercings are extremely popular among alternative youth cultures of today. You regularly see celebrities, music stars, and fashion icons wearing them.
But what are the best types of nose jewelry? And how do you know which one is right for you?
This article will walk you through everything you need to know about different types of nose rings.
Hoops For Button Noses
If you’re someone who has the traditionally “cute” small, upturned button nose, you’ll probably look best with a traditional nose piercing as well. Larger piercings might well end up looking clunky, and unless you’ve truly honed an alternative style, strange colors might just look “off”.
We recommend going with a standard one-nostril stud nose ring. These can highlight the cuteness of your short nose, and call everyone’s attention to your best features.
We also recommend a one-nostril hoop ring.
Double Up For Flared Noses
If your nose is still on the more dainty side but has a more flared appearance, you’re going to want to take advantage of the extra space. Double hoop hearings work well on these kinds of noses, as well as double studs.
If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can even try a stud on one side and a hoop on the other. This will depend on how symmetrical your nose is, however. They can work with septum piercings as well, but perhaps not quite as well as…
Wide Noses Can Go Big
Wide noses can make use of some of the boldest types of piercings out there. The extra space means you can put in more hardware without it throwing off the look of your face.
Wide noses work best with septum piercings. It should be noted, however, that septum piercings are their own unique process. They generally require more recovery time than most other sorts of piercings.
There are many different types of septum piercings out there. Figure out whether you want a straight barbell or a variation on a hoop.
Asymmetrical noses are a bit harder to work with. You have to truly make sure you cater to the contour of your nose to find the right piercing. We recommend sticking with a simple nostril piercing on one side to balance your nose out.
If you ever want a type of nose piercing that doesn’t suit your nose type, consider a Rhinoplasty by Montilla Plastic Surgery.
Nose Jewelry Works For Different Types
At the end of the day, no two people are going to wear the same type of nose jewelry. Though you might have a certain “nose type”, you also have to take into consideration the rest of your features.
