Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

 

   I haven't really noticed until I started makeup but I have hair that's about the length of my full grown (if I let them grow) on the sides of my face and it makes my skin look darker than it is..

also whenever I pluck them, I get black heads or white heads as a result. 

does this mean my skin is weird? 

should I wax them? 

When I search google for facial waxing, only upper lip situations come up..

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I get mine at Target, CVS has them too. Ardell has a 3 pack that they usually have right next to their false lashes. So check wherever tweezers and lashes are.

I'm sure you can find others on amazon too.  

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Huh - I haven't seen these, but now I'll look out for them.  Thank you for posting the photos.  Definitely gonna' try them.

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Haha, I don't usually tell people this because they think I'm nuts, but I shave my face. I use both those little single blade face razors from the drugstore as well as a man-style gillette. About every three days or so I go over my cheeks and upper lip with the gillette and once every two weeks or so I go over everything with the smaller single blade razor. 

 

No, I don't get stubble. It grows back just as fine as it started out. If you have naturally thick hair though, I wouldn't recommend shaving as it could be stubbly. I have super fine hair everywhere (which is nice when it comes to my face), but I personally find that makeup goes on so much better without all the peach fuzz. 

Plus it's a nice exfoliation Smiley Happy

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Thank you 

I was watching a beauty show with a dermatologist talking and got a mixed idea about shaving.. she didn't really "give a definite" answer.. 

someone else recommended the eyebrow razer on this thread so I'll start with that, see how the skin/hair react and maybe move on to the full sized one!

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I do too. :-/ Mine is pretty fine, but b/c my natural hair color is black, it looks noticeable, at least to my eyes! I prefer threading b/c my skin is kind of sensitive to waxing, so I go for full-face threading once a month, and tweeze on my own in the between time. 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I should really look into threading 

I only got it done once for my eyebrows and remembered liking it and is reading here about it being more gentler than waxing 

thank you so much Smiley Happy 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I love threading so much more! You don't have to worry about the heat like you do with waxing, and it's definitely more gentle (keyword "more" -- by comparison. I still cry occasionally, and I'm pretty sure the lady who does me at the salon thinks I'm a complete wimp, lol) since the pulling is happening just wear the hair is, as opposed to the entire surface of your skin.

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Lol Thank you Smiley Happy 

school's finally done and I'm going to try threading Smiley Happy 

 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Do you watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey? One of the housewives, Caroline Manzo, shaves her whole entire face every morning. I tried shaving my face too, even though I am not even that hairy, it left me soooo much smoother!

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

There's no way I could do it every day. It takes me a while because I'm paranoid of shaving off an eyebrow! Lol

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

LOL, I would just shave below my eyes. But I am afraid of chopping too much of my hair line make it my hair uneven on the sides.

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I actually haven't watched the show (I'm more of a CSI/24) person.. lol

because my hair is so dark, I'm scared that it might grow back thick and coarse like how eyebrows grow back thicker and coarser when you shave/pluck them Smiley Sad 

did you notice anything similar happening to the facial hair? 

I've heard about both make up and skincare products applying and working better without the hair .. but I don't want to make a choice that i'll regret for the rest of my life T_T 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

plucking, threading, waxing, epilating... it's all the same: ripping the hair from the root. Which could lead to irritation since the pore is open (tiny red bumps, if you are prone to them)

If you're concerned about shaving, do a test patch Smiley Wink 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I've never seen any of the Real Housewives shows, but I shave my face. I have tried waxing before, my skin is so sensitive that it took a lot of my skin off and left my skin red, irritated and painful. I tweeze a lot of my hairs too, but I shave my upper lip, chin, sides of my face and my neck under the chin. 

 

If you are going to shave, vvib, I would definitely recommend using a new razor (I steal my boyfriend's disposable razors) so you don't get razor burn. Sometimes I can't get close enough to my nose to get those little hairs, so I'll pluck them, even though it hurts like hell! 

 

I've never tried threading, but I might look into it as well. 

 

I've read that one of the reasons men usually age better on the face is because of shaving and that it exfoliates the skin. I don't know if that's true, but it makes sense to me. I usually exfoliate my face first, then shave with a shaving cream or hair conditioner. I do this once or twice a week. My "peach fuzz" is almost black and my skin is super fair.

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I have very blonde peach fuzz hair on the sides of my cheeks. I use a good quality men's disposable razor and shave it off every few weeks (it grows slow). I just use some oil on my face to help w/ the razor. I think that soft fine hair can more easily become ingrown if it is plucked. I've not had a problem w/ shaving. 

 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Thank you for the suggestion

the addition of ingrown hair would make my life miserable... I don't understand why my peach fuzz isn't white or lighter in color Smiley Sad 

I'll steal one of my brother's new razor to try if I like the results and buy one my self Smiley Happy 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

You're not alone, I have very fine hair on the sides of my cheek. Like peach fuzz. I found that my skin looks darker there so I used at home wax to remove it. I use Sally Hansen Wax Hair remover for face. It's just strips of wax in between plastic that you rub in your hands to heat it, you peel it open apply to your face and rip off. It's not as painful as I thought it would be.

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Thank you for the suggestion Smiley Happy 

I love how everyone in this community are so empathetic and willing to help Smiley Happy 

I saw a few facial wax the other day at the drugstore but wasn't sure which one to buy or buy one at all.. 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I'm blond and have a lot of peach fuzz on the sides of my face. It was never a problem when I was younger but started to thicken as I entered peri-menopause. The lady I see for facials/eyebrow waxing suggested derma-planing which she does with a single edge razor. I get it done every 4-6 weeks and haven't had any problems. The hair is not thicker or denser.

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Thank you so much for the suggestions Smiley Happy 

I too! never had this!! now it interferes with my makeup and couldn't hate it more than I do Smiley Sad 

I haven't heard about the derma planing but I will look it up and possibly try it Smiley Happy 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I have the same problem!!!

 

I have hair in my whole face!! (yes, your problem could be worst, at least you only have hairs in the side of your face). I have a light skin tone and my hair is black, so...I think I'm the lost sister of Chewacca  Smiley Tongue

 

Wax your face is not as painful as it sounds or looks like. First time of course is weird and it hurts, but if you keep doing it your skin start to handle the pain. 

 

I wax my face every month and a half, the hair start to gets weak and every time is more thin than before. First time, your skin will be very damaged and irritated, but nothing that some creams can't fix. I've been waxing my face since two years ago and I really feel comfortable with how my face looks after that. 

 

I wouldn't recommend you the shaving, because this make that the hairs grow stronger and bigger. I prefer waxing, but of course, you can make test and you'll decide what's the best for your skin and for looking prettier than you are  Smiley Happy

 

 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Thank you so much for the suggestion!!

I also have fair-light skin and the periphery of my face look so much darker than my skin because of the hairs Smiley Sad 

Do you go to a particular place for waxing? or do you use a product at home? 

 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I have peach fuzz all over my face and I use a product called the Bellabe Facial hair remover. You can google where to buy it.  It looks like a slinky and you roll it over your face and it pulls out all of the hairs by the root.  So you don't have to do it very often, it's like a waxing, and the good news is the more you use it the less hair that grows back.  Now for the bad news ... it is painful.  Pulling your facial hair out by the root is indeed painful.  So here's the trick ... go to the drug store and buy some Orajel.  I only need to use it on my upper lip .... the rest of my face can take it.  Rub some Orajel onto your skin, let it set for a few mins until it feels pretty numb, then rub off the gel and slinky that area.  This little device works like a charm, I have all of my girlfriends using it.  I can't live without it now.  

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

Omgsh Thank you so much!! This is super helpful!! 

I didn't think hair not growing back or growing back thinner was possible but now I'm hopeful Smiley Happy 

 

Re: Am I the only one who has hair on the side of my face?

I do, too......The one on the side of my face I don't mind TOO too much since it just make my face look naturally contoured *cough* there, now my secret is out. But the ones over my lips and on the chin I hate, half the time when I pluck I get black/white head even if I exfoliate. =(

 

I want to try some of the tips below, but I'm a wimp when it comes to pain, but maybe, if I'm desperate enough. @.@
