Just curious, does anyone shave their mustache? If so, does it grow back darker? Does it get that prickly feeling like when a guy shaves and 2 days later his hair is growing back? I have been using coverup more frequently and have noticed that it makes me look like I have a brown mustache cause of the hair. Thanks!
I've had the area waxed, I've used tweezers, and I have used scissors. Never shaved.
Shaving doesn't make hairs grow back thicker, it just looks thicker because it is a blunt edge.
Personally, I don't have much facial hair though.
I use sally hansen's adhesive wax strips every 4-8 weeks. Sometimes I use tweezers but it hurts more. I've never shaved.
No, it is very light and hardly noticable. But I have thick side burns and I have had them edged with clippers. lol
God, I hate body hair. I would seriously consider chopping off a toe or two in exchange for never having to shave/wax/pluck anything ever again.
I used to and it is a really bad idea! It grows back stubily, akward, and WAY more noticable. Even though the package says not to I use nair or veet (the cream stuff for your legs/bikini line/underarms). It works like a dream. No waxing or pain required!
I use the nair for sensitive skin stuff or have it waxed. My facial hair is super blonde but it still annoys me so I like it gone. I've seen women who shave their facial hair and it is definitely noticeable when it starts growing back :/
One day (like when I'm not a poor college student) I will have enough money to laser off all my unwanted body hair!
Do not shave!!! It grows back with like 3 hairs per follicle intead of one lol..just wax!
I think shaving facial hair is a NO NO for ladies.. Maybe shaving doesn't make hairs grow back thicker..but it will definetly make them grow faster and more you shave more they will grow thicker..I think best way to get rid off them is waxing strips.
I shaved once in a pinch- right before I was going to an outdoor event I did one last make-up check in the car mirror and noticed some darker hairs (don't you hate natural light!). Anyways, I told my boyfriend I forgot something, ran inside, did a quick shave and re-applied my makeup! I normally bleach my upper lip when I notice some darker hairs
I thread my upper lip. Cheap, quick and easy!
I use wax. I buy a tub and it lasts me about 2 years, lol.
Did anyone see the episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey when one of the ladies said she shaves her whole face everyday in the shower? I don't think she was kidding lol
I get it waxed!
my mom bleaches hers with some sort of facial hair bleach from the drug store - she never gets the prickles but the hairs become unnoticable because they're so fair! she does this about 4-6 times a year...
I second Anamcara... I bleach!
Used to bleach or wax, finally went for laser.
Shaving ... don't do it!
I either tweeze them or wax them .... I never even consider shaving the hair on my face!
LOL I dont know why, but I cracked up at the "Only on special occasions" option hehehe
I had some form of laser hair removal on my face and she told me I had to shave the area before I came back for my 2nd treatment....I was like...um, really? But she gave me this little instrument that is essentially shaving, but you dont use water or shaving cream. Its like a little sander (dont know if that makes sense)
Anyways, I used it once and my hair grew back barely noticeable
I wax them every 2 months or so. I've also tweexed if I noticea stray or two. I've never shaved.
I don't have very much hair on my face, but I use the Sally Hansen hair removal cream to get rid of it if it starts bothering me. It's quick and easy, and I only have to do it every couple of months!
bleach/threading (I learned to do it myself!)
@VirginiaMarie - I'm with you on that!
I don't have any facial hair at all that I need to be worried about like that.
I do have two hairs that grow on my jaw line just under my left ear. And they grow quite fast. But I keep them under control easily with tweezers.
I'll get it waxed or use hair removal cream, but if I'm running out the door and notice that it's getting a bit bad, I might shave it quickly. I know that's bad, though.
I'm going to try threading next.
My friend used to wax or use cream (removal and bleach), then she switched to getting laser removal. She still needs to use removal cream once in awhile but it's not near as bad.
My mom got me something like one of these: http://www.walgreens.com/store/catalog/Hair-Removal/Super-Groom-Precision-Hair-Trimmer/ID=prod1354519-product (Thanks mom....) before that she got me sally hanssen bleach.
i prefer the trimmer. it's easy and i don't think the hair grows back any more noticeable than it did before i used it (it was noticeable then. thus the "gift" from my mother--it's kinda nice though). I said "yes" in the poll but now i'm not sure this qualifies as "shaving" per se.
For the record I have shaved my lip area. And no it doesn't grow back thicker &/or faster. This is an old wives tale. Think of it this way. Most men shave their faces, how thick and fast does it grow? And has it increased each time they have shaved? If it were true the men of this world should have majorly thick facial hair.
Think of all the ladies shavers that have been sold over the years, we should have some pretty hairy women walking around too. Funny enough, my mom who has shaved her body hair all her life, her hair is thinning/barely noticable and she is 60.
Okay I'm off my soap box now.
My "mutache" has been bugging me. When I went to get my eyebrows waxed last week, I was going to have it done, but then I chickened out and didn't ask. I'm glad I didn't, though, because my eyebrow area has been weird, not completely broken out, but not completely normal. Waxing my eyebrows generally makes me break out - it would be pretty rough if I had a pimple mustache for the wedding.
I know I don't want to shave my "mustache," but I do want it gone. I've tried plucking at it with tweezers, but I don't really know what I'm doing and the hairs seem too short to actually pull out.
I'm probably the only person that notices the mustache, though. It's super short and super blonde. My eyebrows are so light you can barely see them on my face.
Three words: laser hair removal.
I thread it off, but have never waxed it.
Urgh eastern european blood = facial hair
I've done it a couple of times when I was in a rush, usually just use veet
Never shave facial hair. It comes back darker. Bleach will make it invisible or wax will make it disappear and grow back finer.
Its a bad idea. I do it, but it grows back super fast and its stubbly. Granted its only a small little 1/2 inch section but YUCK. If my skin wasnt so sensitive, I would wax.
I use this or tweezers and it works like a charm:
they have bleech creme =]
Wow, it's amazing to see how common it is to have bothersome facial hair. I have none. But I still have acne at age 27 so I guess that's my curse instead!
