Hey Sassy Peeps,

The presence of female facial hair is enough to make most women run to the bathroom for a razor, but there may be ways to simply reduce its visibility or have it treated for more effective removal. We’re going to look at a few options that are open to you so that you can pick what you think will work best in your situation. There is more than one way to make that feminine facial hair disappear.

The Wax

This is a common method women try to get rid of their facial hair. However, waxing a mustache or a bit of female facial hair is far more uncomfortable than waxing other parts of the body. Maybe uncomfortable is the wrong word. This is downright painful, and it’s probably not something you will want to try a second time. It can be effective, but there are other ways to remove the hair or make it less visible that are not so painful.

The Razor

While this is another common method women use to get rid of their facial hair, it’s one we prefer to avoid. It can be tough to shave that area of the body if you are inexperienced, and there is a chance that you will leave behind razor burns or cuts that look more obvious than the hair did. Now you are left to explain what happened to those who see you, and you end up drawing attention to where the facial hair grows. Besides, shaving is no permanent solution, and that hair is coming back sooner rather than later.


This is far more effective than shaving, as it is more permanent. It can take hairs a long time to grow back after tweezing them, and it’s usually not very painful. Tweezing only works, however, if you only have a few hairs to deal with. If there is a full mustache growing above your lip, then tweezing isn’t the right option for you.


This is similar to waxing, but not as painful. It can give smoother results as well, and it removes hair for up to several weeks. However, it’s something that needs to be done by an experienced professional, and you should not try to do threading at home. Like it sounds, it involves removing hair with a thread.

Hair Removal Cream

This is one of the most effective and simplest methods of facial hair removal available. The problem is that is will only work for as long as you use it. Once you stop applying the cream, the hair will grow back. You will need to see a doctor about getting this cream, as it is usually not available over the counter and without a prescription.


If you have darker facial hair, then simply bleaching them can be a good way to minimize their appearance. It is fairly simple to use a bleaching agent, but there is some risk to irritating your skin if you apply the bleaching agent improperly. For many people, using bleach on their hair is enough to make it hardly visible, but if yours is already light colored and still bothering you, then this isn’t really a viable option for you.

Laser Treatment

For a long-term solution to the hair problem, you can try laser hair removal. Obviously, you will need to see an expert to have the hair removed this way, and it may take a few treatments to get all the hair taken care of. The problem with this method is that it can be quite expensive, and it may not work very well on lighter hair. It’s very effective on dark facial hair, though, and it’s probably your best option if you have the money to spare.

So Sassy Peeps, have you ever dealt with feminine facial hair? If so, how do/did you deal with? Do tell, inquiring minds want to know.

Have a Happy Healthy and Remember to Always….Stay Sassy
