I have hair on my face somewhere that I wanna get rid of. LoL. I don't now what the easiest way to get rid of it is. Plucking it (which I have been doing, but I always miss some and it takes forever.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Sim!

I have to respectfully disagree with you Karen. [:)]

Ryan - Wax them!  Then trim them up.  Nic has those big bushy eyebrows and if he isn't careful, he has a unibrow too.  I can't stand it, so I insist that he either has them waxed or plucked.  He hates the plucking, so he gets them waxed and trimmed...now if I could just get him to shave everyday I would be a happy mommie!

Yes, don't get them shaped, but if they're really really bushy get them trimmed in addition to the waxing....but not too much!

depends on where you get it done.  I think the last time Nic had it done was around $5.00.

Ryan, when you get your eyebrows waxed, they take warm wax and cover the unwanted hair with it, then they take a piece of fabric and press over that, then they yank the fabric off, which takes off the wax and the unwanted hair.  It's much faster than plucking and, IMO less painful.  It does sting a little bit, but it's over quickly and you get used to it.

Karen's right, you can do it yourself rather inexpensively.  However....if you don't know what you're doing you can REALLY mess up your eyebrows and it'll look worse than a unibrow.  Most anyplace that you go get a hair cut can wax your brows.....even the wal-marts that have hair salons can do it.

LOL - so much fuss over a bit of eyebrow.

And poor Nic, I feel sorry for the guy, having his mother tell him where he should and should not have hair.  Of all the things important in a person, I cannot see that a little too much hair is really such a bad thing (after all, I'm sure he doesn't quite look like Leonid Brezhnev.

LOL.....Oh George!  Nic doesn't like bushy eyebrows either.  Yes, I insisted in the beginning, but now, most of the time he lets me know when it's time.  I don't make him wear his hair short, he prefers it.  I don't make him shave everyday, though I really wish he would....he's only 14 but everyone thinks he's between 16 & 18, especially when he doesn't shave.

I'm really a pretty easy going mother....I even let him get his ear pierced, but I do draw the line at tattoos!

And no he doesn't look like the above picture, but his eyebrows do after about a month of letting them go.

Haha yeah I have to shave a whole bunch to and I'm still 13! I ain't ever going to pierce my ears or get a tattoo though. I cut my hair when school let out a little over 2 months ago and I didn't like it. I think from now on I'll just maintain my long hair so it looks better then a bowling ball. LoL.

I have pierced both ears and have been considering a tattoo.. I don't have a problem with them as I see them as an individual choice.. Although I would recommend one think seriously about tattoos before they choose the one they want! After all they will be permanent! I like hair.. and eyebrows thick or thin it adds character! LOL...

Nair is a depilatory cream and is not as long lasting as waxing, though is much less painful.  Depilatory creams have high ph levels that dissolve or "melt" hair at the skin surface.

Waxing and tweezing remove the hair below the skin and lasts long longer.

Ryan, neither of these are going to be permanent.  If you don't want bushy eyebrows you're going to have either use a depilatory cream, probably twice a month (possibly more) or wax approximately once a month.

I'm not sure what it would cost in your area, but I would guestimate that it's somewhere in the neighborhood of $5.00.  Ask BEFORE you have it done, and don't forget to tip.
