  • Maybe you say something like, Man I just got my stash waxed, or ask her if she has to Nair or wax,b/c you hate doing it.

  • I would assume she knows she has a hairy lip and doesn't care. If it was a really good friend though I would just ask her why she doesn't do it. Telling her to do it is where the offend part comes in I think.

  • Center the conversation on you, just like gena said. Make it about your problem and what she thinks you should do. Ask her what brand she uses

  • The thing is, if it is that noticeable then she has to know about it too, right? I mean, the woman has a mirror. So maybe she doesn't want to do anything about it. The only way I can see that you might be able to approach the topic is if you talk about your own hair issue, maybe if you open the door by bringing it up she'll say something on the topic. Complain about having to do your lip/eyebrow/bikini area or whatever and see if she chimes in. Or casually mention a great new product you tried that might help her out. But I wouldn't just come right out with it because I am sure she knows it's there.

  • I would ask her if she want to join me at the beauty salon. Or I would offer a girls night in for her with beauty tips:) It always helps if you show that you are doing something and you make an offer she can do it as well:) And probably a professional in the beauty salon would point out what she should do:)

  • I wouldn't say anything. If it's that noticeable then I'm sure she realized she has it. It obviously doesn't bother her so why does it bother you?

  • um... I'm pretty sure she knows it's there. If she cared she would have already done something about it.

  • I wouldn't. Why would I care if she has hair on her lip?I do like some of the ideas here about talking about doing it yourself - nnot so you can tell her she has to do it, but so she can easily talk to you about it if she wants to and has been too uncomfortable to bring it up.

  • I wouldn't. If it didn't bother her, it wouldn't bother me.
