How to Get Rid of Fine Blond Hair on My Face

by Catherine Hiles ; Updated September 28, 2017

Fine blond hair on the face, while it is barely noticeable to anyone else, can make you feel self-conscious and unattractive. Everyone has some fine hair on their face, but some people are hairier than others. There are a number of options for getting rid of the fine blond hair on your face, which can be carried out at home or by a skilled professional.

Waxing

Purchase a home waxing kit designed for facial waxing from your local beauty supply store. Heat the wax in the microwave. Do not overheat the wax, or it will burn your skin.

Apply the warm wax to cleansed and dried skin. Press one of the waxing strips onto the wax immediately after application. Leave it on for no longer than a few seconds, and then pull the strip off in the direction of the hair growth.

Apply a lotion containing aloe to the waxed area to calm and soothe the skin. You will need to wax every four to six weeks in order to rid your face of fine blond hair.

Depilatories

Prepare your skin for treatment by applying a wet, warm cloth to open the pores.

Using a depilatory cream designed especially for getting rid of fine facial hair, apply a small amount to the area you wish to treat. Leave it on for three to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the hair.

Remove the depilatory cream using a clean, damp cloth. Make sure you remove as much of the product as possible from your skin. You will need to repeat this process every five to seven days, depending on the rate of growth.

Electrolysis

Find a beauty salon which offers electrolysis. Look for a salon that employs trained professionals to carry out the procedure.

Decide on how many treatments you require, and how often. Your electrologist will be able to advise you based on the amount of fine blond facial hair you have.

Go to the necessary amount of appointments until your fine blond facial hair has disappeared. This is a permanent solution to facial hair removal, and can cost $400 or more, depending on the salon.

Tips

  • Pluck any leftover hairs with a pair of tweezers. Grab the offending hair as close to the root as possible with your tweezers and pull it out gently. Before waxing or using depilatory cream, test a small area of skin to make sure you are not allergic.
