How to Remove Nipple Hair

How-To: Remove That Hair

Earlier, we learned that nipple hair here and there is actually quite normal, but that doesn't mean we all want those errant hairs just hanging around. Just like upper lip hair and any other unwanted growth, lots of us choose to remove it for aesthetic reasons. To find out some tips on removing hair from this delicate area, read more.

  • Tweezing: Stray hair + tweezing = my favorite option. Bonus? It's very inexpensive. For a relatively pain-free experience, tweeze after showering since warm water will help to "open" the pores. Pull the hair straight out from the angle at which it grows to avoid breakage or ingrown hairs.
  • Bleaching: If hair removal isn't something you're after, bleaching it might be for you. However, keep in mind that the lighter your skin tone, the more that bleached hair will blend into the background.
  • Shaving: While it most certainly works, shaving obviously doesn't remove hair from the root, so the downside is that you'll have to do maintenance with greater frequency. Plus, if the hair is very dark and coarse, it could still be visible through the skin. However, shaving is still a cheap, fast, and easy option.
  • Laser removal: Laser hair removal may not be the quickest or cheapest way, but it's the closest thing you have to a permanent option. The good news? Most facilities charge by the area being treated, and since the nipple area is quite small, you won't be paying up the wazoo. Woohoo.

I pluck my long nipple hair. Sounds gross.. lol But you know.. those long annoying ones. I'm a wimp when it comes to pain as well. It hurts when you first do it but once you get used to it.. it's nothing. DO NOT SHAVE DOWN THERE. Bad experience. You get all itchy down there.

I go for the tweezing but luckily I only have a few and the rest are not so noticable. I usually do it after a shower. At least it's good to know that there are a few of us that are not alone with this sort of problem. :)

Shaving almost always makes it itchy after a couple of days!
