Some people say that forty is the new thirty.  Bullshit.   I didn’t have chin whiskers (excuse me — stray eyebrow hairs) when I was thirty.

I have a fair complexion and can keep it under control.  I’m extremely worried about my thirty-something Greek friends, though.


Edited to add:

Whoa– this post is causing much consternation.  Hasten to the drugstore and purchase some Tweezerman tweezers, a magnifying mirror, and reading glasses — these will be your tools of discovery AND annihilation.  Report back on your findings and the results of your attack.

  1. Hmm, I am certainly 40 but I don’t have the chin-brows (?) yet, but do have grey hair. In one concentrated streak on one side of my head. I look like I am working towards the “Bride of Frankenstein” look. That’s still cool these days, right?

  7. In my thirties, and already have the chin hair that have to be tweezed. God, what is fourty gonna do?

  8. Fair skin and blond hair… not a care in the world. Living in a Middle Eastern country full of black-haired, face-waxing women though 🙂

  9. We have ourselves a bearded lady in the town I live in…there is many a website about her.

  10. I am approaching 40 and have a hate/hate relationship with my chin hairs. They grow thick and long in the blink of an eye. I am constantly rubbing my fingertips over my problem areas to make sure a black, twig like outgrow hasn’t cropped up.

    I am blogging a message a day for 40 days counting down to my 40th birthday. Today is #25.

    Margaret’s last blog post..25. Don’t stand in the way of other people’s life purpose

  11. I’m saving my money for laser hair removal…sure it’s for me, but my hairless face and other regions will be the gift I’ll give everyone when I’m too old and blind to see or care about all the hair I’ll have growing everywhere.

    childsplay’s last blog post..Vocab Word(s) of the Day: Mistress. And Bastard.

  12. I’m already tweezing the hairs that threaten to become a unibrow. I’m sure the chin is next.

    Liz’s last blog post..It’s that time of year again.

  13. And can someone please explain how those stray eyebrow hairs magically show up overnight!! I swear I Naired ’em smooth on Tuesday, but by Thursday I’m wishing for a pair of tweezers in the carpool lane. I celebrated my 25th birthday 8 years ago and have been on a downward spiral ever since.

    Jodi’s last blog post..Parlez vous…Wait! Don’t tell me!

  14. I have Dutch ancestry with fair skin and hair, am just over 30 and have been yanking those nasty chin buggers out for years already. I must have done many good deeds, because they are none of them going unpunished. 40? I shudder at the thought! Or maybe cry…

    I add my comments to the one above: how do those full-grown hairs crop up 24 hours after a very thorough tweezing?

    Mamaluv’s last blog post..A chip off the ole blockhead

  15. Girl, I’ve been at this for 6 months now ( 40 in June) Nair for Facial hair is a good start. That, and several DOZEN pairs of tweezers left stategically here and there. Now I’m never more than 6 feet away from any one pair LOL!!

    Happy Plucking!
