Q: IF I WAX THE HAIR ON MY UPPER LIP, WILL IT GROW BACK THICKER? — Marcia Leon

A: A true story: my striking blonde colleague used to try to solve said problem by bleaching,which only produced "walrus lip" (hair that's light, but still prominent). We consulted Anastasia Soare, owner of Anastasia Beverly Hills, who points out that since waxed hair is pulled from the root, it grows in tapered and noticeably thinner looking. Also: The more you wax, the more you traumatize the hair's root -- and thus slow its growth rate. So we say, wax on, sister.
