I have seen it several times. One time, it was even a "professional" woman, who worked at a nice office building doing "office" work. The ones I have seen are all black women. Is it a trend? I don't think it's they "letting themselves" go, because they do look well groomed in other areas, like their hair, makeup, etc.

Omg, I was just talking about our waitress's mustache @ this restaurant we were at a few days ago.


It was a young white woman, but she was totally redneck...

It was disturbing, to say the least.

People don't like to talk about facial hair on women, so women don't know how to deal with it if they so choose. Removal options are painful. And things like permanent laser treatments don't work for darker women (not enough contrast between hair color and skin color.)

It is a very taboo topic.

I think just about any woman can afford a $2 pair of tweezers and figure out how to operate it.

Yeah if you take care of yourself in general shaving the mo is nothing, blokes have to do it all the time.

It's apparent you do not have this issue, otherwise you wouldn't even think about suggesting this kind of self-abuse. You either have to endure painful electrolysis, or irritating chemicals or waxing, and those are the best options. Tweezing is not an option, nor is shaving.

So for all of you men and any of you women who don't have facial hair, I suggest you hold your ignorant comments to yourselves because you have no idea what it's like to try to get rid of it.

Why isn't shaving an option? Is women's facial hair different to men's??

Men who have no facial hair whatsoever would be in the minority, me thinks lol.

Honestly, I see more white women and hispanics with the mustache. I feel I see more black women with hairs around the chin region.

I've been informed some men appreciate the facial; possibly a fetish.
I can recall bring in the thick of a good night until this blonde's mustache brushed against my lip and cheek. Totally ruined the mode, I couldn't complete the task.

S/N: I have seen more women with facial hair in theed state of Pennsylvania than any other place frequented.

Tweezing most certainly is an option. Reign in the indignation.

I have PCOS, and would have quite a moustache if I did not tweeze for about 10 minutes daily. I will occasionally wax, and will eventually pay for electrolysis, but I could get along for the rest of my life concealing the 50 or so dark coarse hairs on the upper lip (plus double that in fine hair) with nothing but a pair of tweezers.

If one has never done anything, then starting off with a pair of tweezers would be time consuming, but that is not the case for daily maintenance.
