Today, I started growing hair on my upper lip. I'm finally becoming a man! Too bad I'm a 17 year old girl. FML

that's actually a myth, however you've even got the myth wrong. When you shave hair it appears to grow in darker because as opposed to growing in naturally and tapering to a point like normal hair, it has a blunt edged due to being cut by the razor. Waxing pulls the hair out at the root and therefore when it grows back would not appear any darker than the hair before.

its normal- and trust me, other people wont see it as clearly as you do. you may think that its "omg so dark and awful and hairy", but i can bet that no one else is even going to notice, or care for that matter.

Bleach it, don't wax it'll just grow in darker.

Thats not a myth, when you shave it does grow back thicker, happened on my chest

This isn't Seinfeld lol, it apparently doesn't grow back thicker, it just looks that way because the individual hairs don't taper to a thin point, making it finer.

This isn't true for all people, it really does grow in thicker and darker for some people.

Darker, maybe, but not thicker. There are only a certain number of hair follicles capable of growing that sort of hair, so it can't really get thicker.

shaving does nothing to change your hair at all (except remove it of course!). the reason ppl think it grows back thicker and darker is bc @migglepop and people tend to start shaving in their teens, when their hair is naturally getting darker and thicker. OP: wax it!

then how come when guys start shaving, their beards and stuff are like soft and when they've been shaving for a couple years it seems rougher? huh? answer me that

Shuddup its a myth, when i shave my hair it dissapears Anyway girls with a bit of hair on the upper lip is sexy so live with it Thankyou

it grows back darker because the sun hasn't bleached it at all yet. hair exposed to the sun is lighter. that's why roots are darker.

Haha. Because when they start shaving they're 16 and their hormones haven't all aligned themselves yet. By the time they're 20, it's all settled out and more hormonal force is going into the hairs. (;

Actually I'm like the exception I think. I shave it off and it comes back the same as it did the first time I shaved it. It's the same with my legs and arms too.

No it is not sexy to have hair in your upper lip and if you like it then you are a weird dude

it does come back thicker sometimes I have 2 or three hairs coming out of the same spot

Go ahead OP bleach it, the more you bleach it the brighter its going to appear, you're gonna have a patch of golden hair on your upper lip & make it even more distinctive, just shave it.

Thats not an FML it happens to every girl at some point, don't be embaressed just bleech it, i bet there are way hairier girls than you

If I hadn't seen this a million (I exaggerate, obviously) times, I'd still feel the way I do: sucks for you, get over it. This is not an FML.

I agree, that's not an FML at all. I wax all the time and so do my friends.

Haha imma girl never happend to me =) pull them out >=D

You do know, hair grows every where, EVEN ON YOUR UPPER LIP for everyone.

You should check out one of our teachers... we thought of giving her a man's shaving kit for birthday present. Girls in South India are way more hairier than anywhere in the world.

Hello, can I introduce you to Middle Eastern women? I'll bet we win that contest! However, I will say that in general, ME women are a lot more anal about hair removal since it's a pretty big social requirement to NOT look like your boyfriend/brother/uncle Ted. OP: Join the rest of the female population - hair removal is a fact of life - deal with it and wax.

EXACTLY. now brb while i go wax my brows

What the fuck, Sploosh? I'll wax you wherever you need it. No need to strain yourself.

I'm due for my waxing...;)

The usual Brazilian, then? WINK. WINK.

Alright ready... Let's do this ;) (Kay armed with wax and cloth strips comes in) *rip* ahhhhh... I'm sure the screams can be heard for at least a 100 mile radius..

Yeah, and funnily enough, that wasn't me WAXING you yet :D

Curses! Was it at least toxi or redbluegreen?;)

God no, they were quite busy filming the entire sordid affair ¬_¬ I blame Pleb.

Hello, are we forgetting Greek women?

I think we should skip the whole nationality nonsense and just go with, women are hairy beasts just like men, but they hide it way better.

#27 I'm sorry, but ANAL? WTF?

haha #3 i was being nice, it normaly doesn't happen till 60s or something but shhhh! Don't tell the OP!

Wait 'til you get a full shadow. You'll look like you've been up all night solving a murder mystery. Oh and lol @ the name being "harry"

grow it into a porn-stache.

btw I like your taste in music

that's hillarious but normal unfortunately....

its normal- and trust me, other people wont see it as clearly as you do. you may think that its "omg so dark and awful and hairy", but i can bet that no one else is even going to notice, or care for that matter.

I know someone that had this problem pretty badly- and in other places. It turned out that she had a hormone problem because of ovarian cysts. Not to freak you out or anything, just if it's really bad, talk to your doctor about it.
