Removing upper lip hair is easily done through a variety of grooming methods that you can do yourself, including plucking the hair with tweezers or removing it with hair removal cream or wax. Try more than one method in order to find the one that works best for you.
- Pluck the hair
Use a pair of tweezers with a slanted angle at the top. Place the hair between the tweezers’ blades at an angle. Get as close as you can to the root of the hair before pulling it out. Pull the hair out with a quick tug. Repeat for each hair until all the hairs are removed. Be sure to keep the instrument clean to avoid infections.
- Use hair removal cream
Spread hair removal cream over your upper lip. Leave it on the area for approximately for 3 to 15 minutes, based on the thickness of the hair. Afterwards, wipe off the cream with a wet cloth. Hair grows back anywhere from 2 to 14 days later.
- Wax the area
Apply hair removal wax to your upper lip in the same direction that the hair is growing. Place a wax strip over the wax. Pull the wax strip off in the opposite direction of the growing hair. Hair typically does not grow back for several weeks afterwards.
