Mot women have at least a few hairs around the nipples. Personally, I have had electrolysis done as I had a few hairs. You can also look into laser hair removal. If there are just a few hairs you can pluck them safely. It's understandable that you would be a little embarrased ,but just know that it is more normal than you think. Most women have to pluck or otherwise remove hairs from places where they don't want them. I found this information;
Bleaching: If the thickness of the hair is very light, then bleach the area with the bleach that has hydrogen peroxide. Women with darker skin, should avoid bleaching the area as it makes the hair more visible than before.
Plucking : stray hair can be easily trimmed or plucked. Most women follow this method as it is less painful and the hair grows after two-three weeks. Experts suggest to have a hot shower before tweezing the hair, as the open pores will make the removal faster and less painful. However remember plucking out a hair by the root through tweezing can lead to an infection of the hair shaft and curling of the hair into the skin. Before using tweezers, apply cold cream to soften the roots of the hair. This temporary method is easy however this will not prove to end the misery forever.
Waxing : waxing the chest area can be very painful and may lead to red blemishes. Although it lessens the growth of the hair, avoid this method to safeguard your tender skin beneath.
Shaving or threading : this method is a momentary solution to the problem. However the aftereffect seems to be more miserable, as the hair grows more faster and thicker.
Electrolysis or laser destruction: To get rid of hair on the chest forever, go for permanent removal by electrolysis or laser destruction of hair follicles. You may not get rid of it with just one session. Experts state that the number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the area of the body treated, coarseness of hair, skin color and gender. In general, it is necessary to foresee between 3 - 8 treatment sessions. It is easiest to treat coarse dark hair on light skin. Finer hair and hair on darker skin is harder to treat and may require more treatments to achieve desired results. Electrolysis is a safer method than laser hair removal. Risks include the chance of burning the skin or discoloring dark skin with the laser, hypopigmentation (white spots) and flare of acne. Therefore make sure to get the treatment by an authorized practitioner or a well trained staff.

We all have hair all over our bodies, and as you said your hair is darker, it is more noticeable. Do you feel like you have excess hair growth on your chest, or is it just a few strands or a little patch of peach-fuzz type hair?

Just to rule out a medical condition, there is something called, "Hirsutism" that is excess hair growth in women (and children). This can be hormone-related, and is treatable.

If you have just the regular amount of hair that all women have on their chest, but are concerned about it because it is darker in color, you can try some of these hair-removal methods:
* Shaving
* Chemical treatment (depilatories)
* Waxing
* Electrolysis
* Laser treatment
* Bleaching

There is a reason that the hair-removal industry is a multi-million dollar business, as women have been told repeatedly that our skin should be smooth, hair-less, with no wrinkles, no blemishes...even no pores! Try to enjoy your skin, hair and flaws and all. Try some home hair-removal remedies, and if you are still uncomfortable, you can seek the treatment of hair-removal at a reputable salon...just do it for yourself and not someone else!
