How do get rid of hair on the two sides of my face, my chin, my neck, and my moustache? It is so embarrassing.

Many women have facial hair, and use different techniques to remove unwanted hair. Your preference depends on:
- cost
- permanence
- pain tolerance
- time/energy

Here is a great article that discusses the various techniques, Hair Removal 101.

As you can imagine, tweezing is the lowest cost method, but is not permanent and is time consuming. Laser removal is the highest cost method, is mostly permanent and is not as time consuming in the long run.

If you feel that you have excessive hair growth, you can also talk with a dermatologist or your regular doctor, as there are some medical conditions or hormonal imbalances that can lead to excessive hair growth.

Let us know if you have any additional questions!
