Facial hair fix-its


 

 

Your sitch is oh-so-common among girls and women with dark hair and more olive skin tones. Thankfully, there are two easy fixes, and you can do both at home or in a salon. Before you do anything, though, you should talk to your mom, if she has the same problem, or other female family members to see how they handle their unwanted dark facial hair.

 

Wax it away

Any salon that offers waxing services will be able to wax the hair above your upper lip. It’s a simple, quick procedure that’ll only hurt for a few seconds. You can also find facial waxing kits at your local beauty supply or drug store. Follow the directions on the box and be sure to do a test patch just in case you react poorly to the wax.

 

Bleach it to blend in

Another option is to bleach the hair so it becomes less noticeable. You can find bleaching crème kits at any drug store on the cheap, and you can do it yourself in about 10 minutes. Follow the directions carefully and again, do a test patch first. Results usually last a few weeks depending on the speed of hair growth.
