FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: The Girl-Stache + How I Remove Mine
Happy Friday guys! Leaving everyone with this interesting, love-your-body type of question from one of my loyal readers, Anne:
What are your thoughts on 'girl-stache'? I have one and it's embarrassing because I love taking photos of my lipstick.
I have a few specific questions: 1. How do you remove them? 2. How frequent? 3. What are your recommended salons to have it removed? Thank you very much!
I think I don't even have to say, but it's pretty obvious in my photos that I have a girl-stache. :) And what do I think about it? Nothing. It's fine. I'm okay with them; it's only hair; it doesn't destroy my life so I have no issue with my girl-stache. The funny thing is, others have issues with it! :D They say I look 'ugly' because of it and I seem unhygienic; these are just assumptions and I know they're not true so I'm not bothered at all!
I do wax off my girl-stache, but it's just I don't seem to have the time nowadays and I'm such a spendthrift to cough up hundreds of pesos for an upper lip wax so I wax my 'stache on my own. What product do I use?

I just use VEET Wax Strips; I cut one into strips, grab one, and start waxing; I just follow standard waxing protocol to keep my skin safe throughout the process; I've been using VEET to remove my girl-stache for a year now.
How often do I wax my upper lip? Around 1-2 months; I let the hair grow out fully; I don't wax often because I noticed that the skin on my upper lip gets irritated quickly so I give it enough time to recover before the next session.
Finally, for the salons, Benefit Brow Bar or Browhaus, two of my trusted girl-stache removers when I'm just too lazy to wax 'em off on my own.
There you go, Anne. Having girl-stache is okay so don't worry too much about it. ;)
