To have a lip wax? And a chinny chin chin one?
Flossyfloof · 20/06/2013 22:35
I am blonde and have very fine upper lip hair. Never been an issue but I am noticing that I can feel them sometimes, in the corner. I am of an age when things start to go a bit haywire and having examined them very closely I see that a couple are actually pointing down onto my lip rather than following the lip line round. If I have a wax won't it look funny? Don't you look all bare and then stubbly? I get a couple of bristly hairs on my chin as well. Shall I have the old chinny chin done too? What about threading? I know IABU in over-sharing but aibu to consider having these major procedures done?

Go for it Flossy. If I could afford it I'd have all my facial hair removed professionally (not my eyebrows of course, that would just look weird).
Does waxing grow back stubbly? If it does and you have a lot of hair off that way you're going to end up with stubble all over. Might be better to try plucking if it's only a few stray hairs; painful but fairly effective.

It won't grown back stubbly if you wax/thread it. Essentially it's exactly the same as plucking. I prefer threading as it's cheaper and I find it lasts longer.
I get my top lip and eyebrows threaded every couple of months. I've got dark hair and it lightens my whole face and makes a massive difference.

I have a patch of quite dense hair on each side of my chin. have to lose it weekly or I have fur. I've had it waxed once, cost £3 they only put the wax on the hair so it doesn't look too bad. Mine grew back in the same time as normal though
If I'm furry I tend to get nail scissors to cut it down before plucking as I find that easier.

Ooh I will have a look at threading video thanks! I am sure the lip thing is not noticeable to anyone else, I use a X 8 magnifying mirror so I know it's there. I know I am lucky that it is fine and blond though. My beautician doesn't do threading I am always asking her to learn it would be fab if I could learn instead!
Thanks for your responses.
I thought it was really bad form to out someone, Fuckit. JH.
