How to deal with excess hair

DD is only 9 but very conscious of the hair on her legs (all the girls in her class apparently have none at all and have questioned her) and upper lip is beginning to show....I can imagine that by next year, it'll be really obvious.

It's a shame because she loves wearing shorts and skirts. She's mixed race - Asian and European, with 2 hairy parents!

How to deal with this? Thanks in advance

I've been waxing my DD 10 for the last year (eyebrows only) but tbh she needs her underarms done before the holidays. If they are conscious of it or friends are making comments then it's kinder to sort it I think.

Thanks bookbuddy! OK, will have to consider the options... Maybe bleaching for upper lip...

Maybe try a salon for the first time or something like veet sensitive (patch test first). I've been using the veet wax strips but am think of the removal cream for her underarms.
