Does anyone have any suggestions on getting rid of my 13 year old daughters upper lip hair. It's not much only on the corners of her mouth but she is very aware of it.

You can either bleach or take her to a salon for waxing that part.  She is old enough now i think that waxing would be better.  I had it done once and the hair in those areas came back lighter or not at all.  Now all i have to battle is my eye brows lol.

Would she be able to pluck?

It depends on how much hair there is,plucking is an option, so is waxing...just depends

in light cases bleaching is an option

 Has she ever been to a doctor to determine why she has it?  Maybe her hormones are wacky.

My daughter has the upper lip hair on the corners of her mouth and she uses her razor and shaves it off.  She does this about once every two weeks.  It works fine :-)

Ugh I don't think I want her to start plucking yet but I will keep that in mind.  Thank you

She has not seen a Dr. But that is an option I had not thought of. She is at that age.

 I have upper lip hair and I was the only one that noticed it until I was out of high school.  Anyway, I did waxing (OUCH) and plucking (I only got a coupld of hairs plucked and stopped) and shaving (DON'T use a shaver, a plain razor would be find I guess, but the vibration stimulates hair growth).  My SIL started bleaching unwanted hair (due to a hormone condition, but hers was bad enough she was probably not going to be able to have children, but did) and she still does.


Quoting scottydog:
