OMG......this is so embarassing...

So, Im driving to Chuck E Cheese yesterday for a birthday party, and the sun is coming in directly through my windshiled so I lower the visor and catch my reflection in the mirror----I guess the combination of direct sunlight and polarized lenses made it worse but... I HAVE A MUSTACHE... it's not even noticable under normal indoor lighting.. I dunno how long I've been walking around like this-- But i need it GONE, like, last week. (No wonder Im single! lmao) So I know I can wax, pluck, bleach.. Im sure there are other options.. anyone know what the best option is?? HELP! thanks :-)

  • Waxing, definitely, but go to an esthetician (someone who deals with skin) not a hairdresser. Make sure they use a "hard" wax, I think Cirepil is the best, and don't let anyone touch you with a Clean & Easy roll on wax that uses strips. Bleach it and you'll just have a blonde mustache, pluck it and you won't be able to see through the tears, lol.

  • Don't shave! I've seen ladies who've done that and it looks very obvious. How about one of those dealies that buff it off? I'd stay away from bleaches - just not comfortable with chemicals. I wouldn't pluck either. That area is very sensitive. I think waxing is your best bet.

  • Oh, do NOT use the buffer thing. I tried that and it gave me a bumpy rash and ingrown hairs!

  • Definately get it waxed--- as a plus to the 'stash being going, the hair thins over time with waxing.

  • I would get it waxed but I can't help thinking the more you mess with hair it grows back thicker.

    I am hispanic and i have dark hairs and I can barely see a mustache as well I have had it waxed before but stopped bc of what I just mentioned. One time I did my sides of my face, my top lip and eyebrows....I looked clean but sometimes it can get expensive and if you do it yourself omg forget it pure torcher...Whenever I go get my eyebrows waxed they ladies there also ask me if I want to have my top lip done...hmmm I don't think it is that bad...or is it? (it's more like fine hairs but still). GL

  • I use the Smooth Away on my upper lip, they advertise it on TV. It does not hurt and really buffs the hair off. I have had it waed, ouch!! The upper lip is so sensitive, it hurts more than eyebrows which I get done all the time.
