Wax them, many people do that. It usually isn’t advertised as sidebrun wax at salons but more like side of face wax.

I haven’t had it done but it would grow back less stubly than if you were to shave it.

It won’t come back stubbly, but it might hurt. The side of my face is the most sensitive part! I have waxed there before, and it is pretty ouchy. But I do think it’s the best solution! Or you could bleach and the hair would be lighter? I’d definitely get a professional to do it for you if it’s your first time.

can you just lighten the hair? research it a bit at salons, spas, and online and maybe there is already a solution out there. Best of luck

Wax, or maybe laser. Waxing is good, but depending on your skin type it can be irritating. I waxed my ‘burns and was left with a horrible red rash, folllowed by whiteheads the week after. Not everyone has that experience, and when I wax my ‘tache I don’t have any reaction. So am saving for some laser as I don’t like the hair on my face.  But definitely give it a try and see. you may be fine with it.

Whatever you do, unless you are SERIOUSLY into pain, do not thread there!

why don’t you just use a cream hair remover? i use it sometimes on the “sideburn” area. i have a terrible reaction to wax so the cream remover works great. it also doesn’t hurt 🙂

Have the hair threaded instead of waxed. My FI’s family is Persian and they’re all pretty hairy. The girls in the family get their eyebrows and “sideburns” threaded. I think one of them knows how to do it herself now. It’s cheap (~$7) and only takes 5 mins.

I was going to say the same thing!  Get them threaded.

It hurts! I have my arms done (My dad is Italian) and it hurts baaad but it’s worth it. It comes back in slowly and soft. Just make sure you do it a few days prior so the redness and tenderness is gone by your wedding day.

@Jer72:  Sorry, you thread your arms? You are a brave woman!

Threading my face hurts like crazy, But I know loads of people who do it. I thread eyebrows only. Wild horses, on bended knee could not convince me to do otherwise.
