Have name changed for this (took forever) I have a hairy face! I started noticing the odd dark hair years ago that I just plucked whenever I saw it, then noticed a patch on my chin and didn't have time so got the razor on it, have been doing that for months and today I have seen 2 dark hairs on my cheek! surrounded with fine hairs, under my chin. I am growing a beard! What's to be done for this?
I have black hair and have to have my monobrow (!) Threaded and my 'tache. I recently started noticing additional chin hairs sprouting next to the one wiry one that's been there since I was about 21. I guess it's time for me to get that threaded too. <sigh>
TPOH Do you cover your whole face? What I'm worried about is covering the patches where the hair is dark and wiry, and then having bald patches amongst the fine hairs........ Surf Ouch, I have the brows threaded (overdue at the mo though) but would be really embarrassed to ask for my whole face! Costly too, no?
Lots Asian and Middle Eastern women have their whole face threaded. Dont be shy! It absolutely KILLS, though. I have my eyebrows done, but after having my upper lip threaded once, I now get it waxed. Threading on that area was possibly the worst pain I have ever felt.
Get it lasered if you can afford it. You often get deals on Groupon. It is so worth it, honestly, not to have to worry about it any more. You may need a top up treatment in a couple of years, but by the time you pay for weekly threading or waxing etc, it won't cost much more to get it done permanently (or as good as).
Just noticed this thread on the Mumsnet Swears by email. The epistick featured about 6/9 months ago on the swears by email as well so I bought it and I must say, it may be cheap but it should be! It was hideously painful and didn't remove any hair. Am definitely looking at lasers. Thinking ahead to granny hairs when I'm in the home!
