You probably have a lot of questions about your body, one biggie you might be thinking about is, “Is it normal to have hair on my nipples?” I’ll cut to the chase right now and tell you that it is normal to have hair on your nipples and around them.
Nipple hair is completely normal, just like it’s normal to have hair on your head and hair on your vagina. It can be thick and dark or light and fine, or somewhere in between.
It’s also a personal choice what you’d like to do about it, if anything. Some people like to take a more relaxed approach to body hair while others prefer to remove all of their hair save for the stuff on their heads and eyebrows.
It’s your choice what you want to do. If your nipple hair is bothering you and you’re curious about your options, here are five ways you can deal with the hair on your nipples.
Pluck ItIf you have a few straggly hairs here and there, plucking could be your easiest option. When you're cleaning up your stray brow hairs, you can do your nips at the same time. Just be sure that you don't grab the skin when you're trying to remove the hairs because that will hurt like a mother. Image source: Getty
Wax ItYou could do this by yourself or you could go to a pro. The professionals will know how to handle the situation best. At home, you'll have to make sure that the wax is the right temperature and that you're able to get a good grip on your boob, the wax, and the wax strip. If you don't get your technique night, you could remove skin. And no one wants that. Image source: Getty
Trim ItSome people like trimming because it can quickly clean up a patch of hairs and it typically isn't as painful as the other methods. Just a word of advice: Use smaller scissors, like manicure ones, and be very, very careful of what you're cutting. Do not get too close to the skin. You do not want to cut off your areola. *Cringes* Image source: Getty
Get Laser Hair RemovalIf you want a permanent solution, this could be an option. You'll obviously need to speak to the pros to find out if it's viable because laser hair removal typically works best on those with light skin and dark hair. You'll also have to be prepared to fork out a lot of cash for it and have multiple sessions. That being said, I wanted you to know about it being a possibility. Image source: Getty
Let It BeI want to make sure that you know that this is an option. You have hair on your boobs, so what? You can just leave it be. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it if you do. If you're comfortable with it, brilliant. You can go ahead and focus on other things and let those strands do their thing. Image source: Getty
