DD has dark hair. She is almost 15 and I noticed this week that the hair above her lip is growing quite dark and she has a bit of a moustache. She hasn't noticed yet, and before she does want to provide solution for her. and before someone else does. I'm fair so never had this problem. Needs to be low maintenance option if possible as she has very little spare time to visit a beauty salon but what's best option ... Waxing, threading, laser, ectrolosis?
I disagree. If you've noticed it, someone else will, and they will be much crueler in telling her, as they were to me. In the canteen at lunchtime. With an audience. My nana took me to get it waxed. She blamed herself!!
I wax my upper lip and have done for years, needs.doing about every 3 weeks, but I agree that a good salon will whip it straight off. mine makes me more conscious as I wear makeup everyday and my powder clings to the fine hair and makes me look dirty. It's no big deal, may hurt the first time a bit but will become more used to it the more she has it done, and no it doesn't come back stubbly, just comes through soft
Yes waxing in a salon (or if really no time, then something you can use at home, but they're not as good IME).
I've actually started using a home IPL machine, which is fantastic. I use it for leg, underarms, bikini and now top lip, all to great success. They're not cheap, but over the long run may be worth considering. Although I shave everything else before using the machine (as per instructions), I couldn't bear the thought of shaving top lip first, so zapped without and it's still worked.
