Hi there,

some women do have a few hairs on certain parts of their body not usually associated with females such as facial hair. This tends to often be the case for people with a darker or olive coloured skin and dark or black hair. To be honest asking your mum or sister would be the best thing as they can advise how to eal with this and help you normalise this.

Contacting a beautician before removing the hair is advisable as they will recommend the best and safest approach. I know its embarrassing, but speaking up about this will also lead to it being resolved.

Best wishes

Hi girl,

I also get it, i just pluck them out with a tweezer, like plucking your brows. It is perfectly safe, checked with my doc.
