electrolysis is the best way to permanently remove hair. Laser does not work! My sister is an electrologist and she is very knowledgeable on the subject. She has a website if you want to contact her. Just google Freedom Electrolysis and you should find her.

There is also a prescription cream that stops hair growth on the face. You have to use it "forever" though, otherwise the hair / fuzz will grow back. A friend got a prescription for some thick hairs growing on her chin that really bothered her. Do not know what the brand name would be in USA as I live in Finland. My friend had this habit of feeling her chin all the time, looking for the hairs. She also carried tweezers everywhere with her and tweezed every single day. (Is that a verb, even?) Sometimes she dug deep to catch hairs that were not long enough to tweeze yet. The cream was and is a godsent to her, I know.
  • Complexion: NC 15 winter, NC 20 summer. Still oily.
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Hair: *Very* fine + wavy. Middle / dark blonde (my natural hair color) with some highlights.

Jessica, I know this is an old thread I'd very much like to know what you decided.  I know that in Singapore removal of facial hair, particularly eyebrows is usually done using the thread method, although it is a dying art nowadays.
  • Complexion: olive
  • Eyes: brown
  • Hair: white & grey, straight but coarse & thick.
