Tweezers are a staple in everyone’s beauty routines, so you might be wondering if you can bring tweezers on a plane or not.

According to TSA, regulations, you are allowed to bring tweezers on a plane in both your carry on and checked bags.

But are there any packing requirements you should follow to make sure that you won’t run into any issues at the airport?

Do the type of tweezers you want to bring matter?

Do the rules differ when flying internationally?

Let’s find out.

Can You Bring Tweezers on a Plane?

Carry on Bags

According to the TSA, you can bring tweezers on a plane in your carry on bags.

There are no specific requirements that you have to follow like you do when bringing liquids, gels, and aerosols onboard, so you can just throw them in your bag, and you will be good to go.

The tweezers can also be of any length, which is not the case if you want to bring scissors on a plane, for example.

Checked Bags

You are allowed to bring tweezers on a plane in your checked bags, though the TSA state that:

“Any sharp objects in checked baggage should be sheathed or securely wrapped to prevent injury to baggage handlers and inspectors.”

If you pack your tweezers in your toiletries bag, that will also be fine.

Domestic vs. International Flights

Regardless if you’re flying domestically within the USA or internationally, the same rules apply.

So whether you’re flying to or from Canada, Mexico, the UK, Europe or any other destination, you will fine to pack tweezers in both your carry on and checked bags.

By Airline

All airlines follow TSA regulations.

So, this means that regardless if you’re flying with a regional or major air carrier like Delta, United, Southwest, JetBlue, American Airlines, or any other airline, you will have no problem bringing your tweezers on a plane in both your carry on and checked bags.

Does the Type of Tweezers You Want to Bring on a Plane Matter?

There are many different types of tweezers, including:

  • Arched-Claw Tweezers
  • Flat-Tip Tweezers
  • Point-Tip Tweezers
  • Pointed-Slant Tweezers
  • Round-Tip Tweezers
  • Slant-Tip Tweezers
  • Wide-Grip Tweezers

According to the TSA, the type of tweezers you want to bring on a plane doesn’t matter.

You can bring any type in both your carry on and checked bags.

This even applies to point tip tweezers that can be very sharp, which is great news if you want to take care of those fine and ingrown hairs.

How to Pack Tweezers for Flying

Packing tweezers for flying is very simple, as they aren’t really any rules that you need to follow.

The TSA do state that “any sharp objects in checked bags should be sheathed or securely wrapped to prevent injury to baggage handlers and inspectors.”

But if you pack your tweezers in your toiletries bag like most people do, this is fine.

Can You Bring Nail Clippers on a Plane?

According to TSA regulations, you are allowed to bring nail clippers on a plane in both your carry on and checked bags.

Again, the TSA also state that “any sharp objects in checked bags should be sheathed or securely wrapped to prevent injury to baggage handlers and inspectors.”

Can You Bring Razors on a Plane?

If you prefer to shave your eyebrows instead of tweezing them, you’ll be pleased to know that you can bring disposable razors and electric razors in both your carry on and checked bags.

Spare razor blades are also allowed to be packed in both your carry on and checked bags.

Safety razors are only allowed in your carry on bags with the blade removed, and straight razors are not permitted in your carry on bags at all.
