    Wax away. If you can afford it laser.

    I also have dark hair and very fair skin (I’m usually one of the lightest 2 shades when it comes to foundations, but a very dark brunette).  I used to thread my face ($20 for face and eyebrow threading at this place by my house), until I started laser.  If you’re only going to do the upper lip, I would recommend electrolysis, if it’s in your budget.  Laser is cheaper, but more sessions.  Electrolsis is one time and more painful usually.  Both are permanent.

    I use a cream and then I pluck any additional hair that pops up.

    Laser! Pricy, but very worth it in the long run… Before I lasered my lip I used to get it threaded so that’s also a no mess option.

    I pretend it’s not there, and hope to God everyone else does the same thing.

    My SO pointed it out once and I was so mortified. But the thought of having to bleech it or shave it scares me because I don’t want it to grow back like this

    Wax. I’ve been doing it for a few years now (maybe 5ish?) and it’s now so thin and so light I only have to do it twice yearly. I used to have to do it every month like clockwork.

    I don’t get lip hairs, but do get chin hairs and I’ve been epilating for quite a while.  It seems to last a lot longer than plucking and doesn’t take anywhere near as long to do.  I just make sure to do it while Mr CL is out of the house Wink

    I use hair removal cream, you only need to leave it on for a few mins and then you wipe it off, its pain free and lasts ages and when u see a first glimpse of hair then you can use it again even on short hair.

    BUT!! be careful that you are not alergic to it first by doing a test patch! you in no way want a fat red rash on your upper lip you’d be better off keeping the tosh 😛

    i would suggest waxing as the cheapest alternative.  the hairs will grow back thinner and sparser.

    i wax my upper lip and find i do it less and less frequently over the years.  i do it at home myself.

    shaving will only make the hairs grow back thicker.

    laser can be expensive and will take a few sessions but apparently works.

    I wax and use Sally Hansen cream hair removal in between session. Occasionally I’ll pluck if a hair is missed. I definitely think upper lip hair can be controlled!!

    I thread and its such a neat, no-mess solution. I will likely laser at some point in the future, but I’m still a bit wary of lasering. Fiance is frightened that it will somehow do longterm damage to my skin.

    OMG I get thick chin hair.

    I don’t just let it sit there or anything, but I hate it so much. 🙁

    I have just started noticing that I am getting lip hair, but it is thin and blonde so I don’t know whether I should start waxing or just leave it be?
