In other words, it hurts like effing hell and leaves your skin red and bumpy and sore for days. Just tweezing one hair on the upper lip is excruciating!

It's not like tweezing eyebrows, where the skin isn't as delicate and you're not clearing the entire area of hair.

I don't give a flying leap what anyone thinks; however, I do think that some people in these threads should stow the holier-than-thou bullcrap.

So many of these "fashion and beauty" threads are nothing more than an excuse to pass judgement on others.

I have tweezed stray hairs pretty much wherever they crop up, but it's not really viable for women who for whatever reason (usually hormonal variation) grow more than the average amount of hair/coarser hair) on the upper lip. Most women have some amount of facial hair, but usually it's light and fine and unnoticeable. For those who don't, tweezing is likely to be a daunting, time-consuming, and painful choice.

Certainly there are other conditions that cause facial hair in women, but a check for Type 2 Diabetes would be warranted. They're related. And if that's the cause, then following a diabetic diet can result in that hair disappearing, often quickly.

What about Veet or Nair?

I do think when some women shave or tweeze the hair gets thicker,ingrown hairs form,or its just painful.
I have some growing out of my neck,but I think taking Biotin made it grow,because I didn't have any prior to taking it. My sister was pregnant and she started growing hairs on her chin and lower cheeks,I guess due to hormones.
My skin is a little darker on my upper lip,but I just cover it with foundation and concealor.
Tried shaving ot,but there was no hair to shave.
I notice mustaches mostly on East Indian women and Arabic women.
But most of the women I see with hair on the face or neck are about 40 and older,or pregnant,leading me to think its hormonal.

Oh My! I can't believe people think shaving and tweezing are good solution to facial hair. Those are the worst things you can do for facial hair(except for the eyebrow area). The hair will go thicker and ingrow hairs will come sooner or later.

Waxing or laser are the solutions. Bleaching is also better than nothing. Please don't recommend something that will make the problem way worse.

Shaving doesn't actually make hair grow back thicker, it just cuts the hair off at a blunt angle which may make it look and feel coarser.

Most women get that stuff waxed off. I know a LOT of hairy Persian and Armenian women who visit the spa weekly or bi-weekly to get waxed. These are women who are otherwise BEAUTIFUL and SEXY, but since they know they are hairy, they take care of it. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, women who take care of themselves.

She must need to visit a laser clinic for waxing or for hair removal.
