If you are a woman and have facial hair I would recommend getting it hot waxed. The worst thing to do is to shave it with a razor blade or pluck it. More hair will grow back and it will grow back thicker and darker. Facial hair removal can be done at nail shops, salons, spas, or right in the comfort of your home. I recommend going to a small spa or salon when it’s not too busy. Being a woman and getting facial hair removed can feel a bit uncomfortable. It’s good to be relaxed and not have to worry about everybody watching you get your facial hair removed. The average cost in getting facial hair removed is $8-$15. You may have to go back each month depending on how fast your facial hair needs to be removed. I have a mustache shadow and found that my facial hair grows faster in the summer months but as time went on my mustache got lighter and less noticeable.
Women with mustaches don’t have to feel less pretty because they have one. If you decide to have your facial hair removed at home I recommend getting the hot wax, the fabric strips or muslin cloth, wooden sticks, and a hot wax oven. The hot wax warmer is highly recommended because trying to heat a can of hot wax on the stove can get very sticky and will mess up your skillet. The hot wax is what I’ve seen nail salons and spas use and it works great. The hot wax warmer is about $30. If you include the waxing fabric, hot wax, wooden sticks and oven it will cost approximately $60 and can last for a long time. I would avoid using the wax that goes in the microwave because it didn’t remove my facial hair. Some people use waxing tape strips to remove facial hair. I’ve never tried this. All you have to do is apply the hot wax to your upper lip with a wooden stick, hold the fabric on one side, press down lightly to smooth the waxing strip onto your upper lip, hold for 7-10 seconds and pull the fabric up fast. Then do the other side. Using cotton balls will get the stickiness off of your upper lip. A tip for the hot wax is to dab it first on your wrist to make sure the hot wax is not too hot.
Your first time may sting a bit when the waxing strip is pulled off your face causing your upper lip to hurt for a little while. If you were ever scared of getting your facial hair waxed just think of yourself without the facial hair.
