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?

Thank you so much for your suggestions

I didn't know other people had to take care of their supposedly peach fuzzes too Smiley Sad 

I'll try the razors 

I shape my eyebrows with tweezers and eyebrow scissors so I never bought one 

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

Yup. 

They look like this:

lol you're so sweet 

I didn't know what they looked like but now I know what to look for Smiley Happy 

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

Where do you find these and what brand? 

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.
