Facial Hair Watch

Anon because there are people I know on here that I wouldn't want to know it's me.

I'm female and I've noticed recently that I have a lot of hair on my upper and lower lip. Now, it's not the same kind of hair a guy gets; rather, it's very fine and light and not noticeable unless you look closer at it.

The problem is, there is a lot of it and I'm getting paranoid that people will start noticing.

My question is, what's the best way of thinning it out/removing it altogether that won't cause it to grow back thicker and darker (as well as really quickly)? It looks like threading is my best bet but I thought I'd ask first to be sure.

Cheers.

hair removal cream....you get one from boots specially for this. or i've heard of bleaching but i'm not sure about that. Personally, if it's not dark hair then i would be tempted to leave it xx

Threading/Waxing. Will cost you roughly £5 from any asian salon...

Bleaching is just dodgy. -shakes head-

Thread it. And what do you mean lower lip? Chin?
If it's not really noticable, then I'd say don't worry, but obviously it's bothering you so thread it. I do love the feeling after being threaded, although for me, it really hurts! :eek3:

I've just ordered an 'Epicare', I don't know how good it is yet because I haven't received it but I hear really good reviews about it. And don't worry if it isn't that noticeable at the moment, wait until if it gets bad otherwise you'll be wasting money and time for no reason

By lower lip, I mean directly under my bottom lip, if that makes sense. It's not really a problem there, it's mainly the top lip that bothers me.

Bleaching isn't an option since the hair is already light enough. It's just there's a fair bit of hair in that area so I'm paranoid people will soon start noticing it, even if it is light.

SLightly weird but I saw this GORGEOUS blonde girl working in carphone warehouse. SHe had unusually prominent blonde facial hair on her upper lip. and it didnt freak me out at all. I though it was sexy!!! Honestly.

Her overall look was kind of bohemian sexy festival goer and she wasnt repulsive AT ALL. 100% attractive

Dont shave or you'll have to do it every day. If youre going to wax or thread- make sure you get it done professionaly.

Hair removal cream stinks and can irratate your skin especially on delicate areas like that. waxing also can irratate. Go for threading, ive heard nothing but good things.

That sounds a little bit like me. I'm blonde as well, just the hair on my face freaks me out. Or maybe I'm just being too paranoid about everything lately.

Thanks for the replies so far everyone. I'll consider asking someone I know for their opinion on whether it looks awful or not and maybe try threading.

I agree! Try not to get too paranoid, you would notice it more than anyone else!
