has anyone had a chin wax?

Last time I went to have my eyebrows waxed, I was talking to the woman about electrolosis (sp?) for my chin hairs and she suggested waxing.

They aren't that obvious to anyone else, but they are to me and I find myself constantly feeling for long or thick ones and then pulling them out (lovely!!)

Anyone had one?

I can't be the only bearded woman on mumsnet??

Yes, I have my lip and chin waxed every 6 weeks or so, otherwise I could pass for the Bearded Lady at the circus.

I tried electrolysis once but it's horrendously painful, left me with sores, and didn't stop the hairs coming back. Waxing is fine, only stings a little bit as the wax is ripped off, and as long as the person doing it uses the right products on your chin before and after treatment then you shouldn't have a problem.

Looks like it
you hid it well in the wedding photos lilibet!
I have ONE post-children whisker that feels to me like a tree growing from my chin, so I can sympathise from an OMG-will-this-happen-to-me sort of perspective M x

I imagine that to be agony?

Yes, lip. It's just a short, sharp ouch as the wax is pulled off, it hurts an awful lot less than plucking each hair out individually does.

as there is a lot of natural 'down' on my face anyway, I'm worried that my chin will look bald and strange and shiny.

Mine doesn't!

And if I don't have it done I look like a fella, so even if it did, there would be no contest really

I use Jolen bleach for my 'tache - but I just have a couple of chin hairs (which are not there and then suddenly, overnight, an inch long - what's that all about then?) and I just pull them out with my trusty Tweezermans.

I couldn't plick them, I'd be there for a fortnight trying to get all the hairs ...

plick? plack? plock?

I mean pluck, of course ...
