Hair… Where?

I kind of cant believe I’m writing about this, but if I can’t talk about it on my own blog, then where can I??  Ladies (and I guess men too?) – I’m talking about hair.  Not the hair on your head, arms, legs, below the belt or any other places you’d expect it to be.  No, the errant hairs that appear in other places.

A few on the chin.  Two on the neck.  One in between the ladies.  Some on the stomach.  Etc.  I don’t know about you all, but I spend way too much time trying to banish these little f*ckers by way of tweezer attack.  It’s not like it’s ever really noticeable to anyone other than myself, but I hate them!  They’re freaking annoying as hell.  Especially when I notice that a new one has sprung up and then, for the rest of the day, I find myself constantly touching it just because.  At least until I can get home and run to the bathroom, underneath the bright lights to yank the crap out of it.

Why the hell are they there?  I know based on general anatomy that we have hair on our bodies for health reasons.  But what the hell do 2 little hairs on my chin(ny chin chin) do for me?  Why on the neck?  Why anywhere that’s random?  

I mean, I’m not going to lie.  I do get a sick pleasure out of getting those tiny bastards with my tweezers.  It’s a sense of triumph unlike anything else.  But would I rather not have to do it at all?  Of course!!

I can’t be the only one out there… can I?


  1. You are not alone; 2 on my chin, 2 on my neck. I HATE HATE HATE them but I know what you mean about a bizarre pleasure.

  2. I now have tweezers in my purse, otherwise as soon as I notice the chin one, I go crazy touching it all day!!!

  3. 2 on my chin & 2 on my right boob. I get the chin, but the boob?

  4. I call them Rogue Hairs. I have one near my belly button that is longer than any other near it. I hate that bastard.

  5. You're not alone! I have several on my chin and in other random places too! Also, this pregnancy caused me to get a really hairy tummy! I had to shave it off, but it never grew back! So weird, but gross!

  6. My mom and I blame it on our Italian and Jewish heritage, but we call them Greek moments, after that scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding where the aunt is plucking a chin hair from the mom. The secret pleasure in plucking them does not get rid of the annoyance factor though!

    My mother, sister and I all have these 2 long hairs on our chins that I always have to pluck.

  8. You are NOT alone.
    I have some rogue hairs as well; the chin, a few on my boob. I don't get it either. Why do they grow darker/thicker in those places? Does not make sense!

  9. Two words: Isolaz Laser.

    Don't hate me, but I don't know if I have errant hairs. Maybe a little peachfuzz on the face but that's it. Now I need to know if I do

  11. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with this issue. Annoying as fuck.

  12. I am so glad I am not the only person with this problem! I have a few hairs on my stomach that drive me crazy and then I have a couple on my boob. I HATE them and am a little obsessive about making sure I shave/pluck them.

  13. Gah. One on my bewb and 3 on my stomach are the first few I can think of. GAH GAH GAH!

  14. Hair is so manly

    Ohhh I love this. I do it ALL the time; it's just a habit now. Sometimes I find a thin strand on my chest, like on the shoulder bone. I think that's a hormone thing. And maybe it's all an evolution thing…you know, if we were once gorillas? :\

    um no you are not the only one obviously by the comments. i have this stupid hair on my chin. i call it a goat hair and i'm ALWAYS keeping an eye out for it with tweezers in hand and for some reason every time i find it, it's insanely LONG!!! WHY ON MY FACE?!

  17. Yep. Thank you for posting this. I have a couple that appear on my chin regularly until I tweeze them and one on my left breast that I never notice until it is inexplicably long. I feel really disgusting even saying that!
