So unsure on what to do – my upper lip hair is only light. I get paranoid that everyone is looking at it!! Do I remove it? How?

Ask your question

  • Its really is up too you. Do you find its making your confidence lower, if it is then you can wax or if its dark hair then there are hair facial bleaches too instead of using the hair removal method. Good luck.



  • Once hair removal starts it seems to need ongoing maintenance – worth considering if it is something that can be maintained.



  • personal preference. personally i do (most of the time), usually get it done at the same time when i get my eyebrows done. i have dark hair so that doesn’t help. When i wear makeup i find it more obvious so depending on my commitments if i wear makeup or not or if my upper lip can wait another week.



  • It depends on how visible they are, and if you can remove it every time they grow back. If you will feel more confident and relaxed after removing them then go for it.



  • If it’s dark I’d look into IPL or laser hair removal. I just wax my own but I am qualified in the beauty field. I noticed my makeup really stuck to the hairs and looked terrible which is why I wax mine off.



  • Trust me if its light dont do anything!it will become noticeable if you start removing it



  • I think as one gets older if the hair is dark go for it. I haven’t as I have fine blonde hair above my lip and its not too noticeable however I’m a firm believer in doing what’s best for one’s self. having a professional do it is the way to go though.
