Removing That Pesky Facial Hair: A Guide For Girls

When men have facial hair it’s deemed, ‘sexy’. But when us girls have facial hair, it’s another ballgame entirely. Bushy eyebrows, stray hairs on your top lip and goodness knows where else, can be irritating and embarrassing.

Luckily, there are plenty of options for removing facial hair – the only problem is finding the method that’s right for you. Lasering, waxing, threading, there are so many hair removal options to choose from.

If you notice that none of your other family members have facial hair, while you seem to have tons of it, it could be down to a hormonal problem. In this case, it might be worth popping to see your doctor to get it checked. If, however, most of your female relatives sprout hair in the same places as you, then you most probably inherited it.

To help you keep your facial hair growth under control, here is our guide to all the best treatment methods:


Many women swear by using lasers to remove their facial hair. There are many lasers to choose from, most of which have proven to be effective at removing unwanted hair growth.

Lasers work by targeting the hair follicles, and can reduce hair growth by 80 to 90 percent. As well as this, laser treatment will also change the structure of the hairs, making them less thick and lighter in color.

However, it takes a few treatments to get to this stage, but it is definitely worthwhile, especially as it’s painless.


Electrolysis, another hair removal treatment can be effective. However, it can also be painful. How electrolysis works is that a needle is injected into each hair follicle, and that follicle is destroyed.

To achieve good results with this method, it can take numerous treatments. Unfortunately, the pain of electrolysis puts people off the treatment, but the results are always great.


Waxing is a quick and easy hair removal method; that’s one of the best DIY treatment options. While you can go to a professional salon or beauty therapist for treatment, waxing can be easily done at home.

If you choose to remove your hair at home, there are various kits you can buy to make it easier. From ready-to-use waxing strips to pots of wax that have to be heated up, there are lots of home waxing options available.

One of the newer hair removal treatments, threading is a fantastic way to have facial hair removed. However, it is a little tricky to do on yourself, so a trip to the salon is needed for this one.

Threading is relatively cheap compared to some of the other treatments, it’s quick and isn’t too painful. It might sting a little bit, but the results make the pain more than worthwhile.

Facial hair can be irritating and embarrassing, but luckily there are plenty of simple ways we can have it removed. From DIY waxing to professional threading, we have so many amazing hair removal options to choose from.
