There was a time, not that long ago, when the state of your mustache was considered classified information.

All women have a small amount of facial hair, and for many, except for eyebrows, it's not noticeable. But if yours is more easily seen than you'd like, there are many ways to get rid of it. They include removal at home, all-natural methods, and more advanced options that can remove it permanently.

If you're not a fan of your facial hair, don't worry! There are a variety of techniques you can use to get rid of any unwanted hair on your face. To get rid of female facial hair, try using waxing strips or pulling individual unwanted hairs out using a pair of tweezers.
