My nine year old daughter is concerned about a noticeable mustache on her lip. Any specific suggestions? Is she too young to go to a specialty salon for hair removal?

Some kids have already made fun of her because of the hair on her lip. Anyone who has dealt with this, please post suggestions. Thanks!

You may want to mention it to her doctor and have hormone levels checked, as this can be a symptom of other issues. In the meantime, waxing would probably be the best option at her age.

I was bullied because I had lots of leg and arm hair. I am still hairy which is a symptom of my PCOS. I started shaving my legs when I was 11 - the worst decision I ever made if I'm totally honest. You could consider waxing or bleaching but remember nce you start it will need doing every so often.

I know a girl of middle eastern background who was very dark, and she started having her eyebrows and upper lip waxed quite young (probably around 9 or 10) because it was very embarrassing to her. Discuss this option with her.

I sued to get made fun of becasue of my unibrow and I lived with it until I was 12 or 13. Even my "friends" made fun of it, but I didn't feel I was ready to do anything about it. my answer was that that was the way i was made and I didn't want to do anything about it. I would talk to her. Explain to her that it's completely normal and lots of women have them. Then maybe let her know that there are options when she thinks she's ready for them, but (depending on your solution) it will hurt. You can always wait for that part for when she;s a little older, or when you talk to her put an age on it or something. good luck!
