I've seen some older aboriginal women with considerably facial hair - moustache and something I'd call a beard.

Sounds like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It's not that uncommon.

Cannot help but think some women are just okay with it. I knew a woman with significant hair on her chest. She always wore low cut tops to show if off. Gagged me but hey, different strokes.

Waxing or laser are the solutions. Bleaching is also better than nothing. Please don't recommend something that will make the problem way worse.
Tweezing is NO different than waxing; except the amount of hair removed at one time.

Hair will NOT grow in thicker either way. That's a myth.

Some women can't wax, some don't want to shave, some can't stand the pain of tweezing, and some can't afford "permanent" hair removal. So the leave it. To each their own.

I get crap all the time for not having perfectly manicured eyebrows. I just have more important things to do, then spend 30-45 mins tweezing them into perfection twice a month. (I can't use wax for some reason, it leaves blisters, hot or cold, bees wax or other, tried 7 different kinds, all do the same thing)

Honestly though, I would rather see a woman with a few facial hairs than this new Alabama/Oak Ridge Boys/ZZ Top trend with wild uncontrolled male facial hair. Beards are cool, but for GAWDS sake, at the LEAST learn how to groom them!!!!

My sister told me about Bellabe. It's a circular wire you roll over your face and it pulls out the hair.

The first time it's UNBELIEVABLE. Because you're pulling out EVERYTHING all at once. But I use it daily for a minute and what's grown in gets pulled out. No biggie at all.

It's 16 bucks and a buck for shipping.

It's quite nauseating thinking about it. I think most women do in fact have hair on their upper lips, but sometimes you have to really look up close to see it.

You actually have to ask?

As a man I'd prefer to kiss a woman, not a man.

I get a bit of a mustache and I hate it because it grows in a little dark. I get it waxed as much as I can, and in between I will pluck stray hairs. I'm looking into laser hair removal though.
