Facial hair looks extremely sexy in case of men but when it comes to women facial hair and sideburns may give shabby look. There are various ways to get rid of facial hair.

Of all the methods, razor is the easiest method to use. But it may cause irritation and leads to hard hair growth and may cause rough skin which surely nobody wants.

A lot of ladies are suffering from this problem. Instead of using razor they prefer waxing to red rid of facial hair. Men while shaving uses either trimmer or razor to remove such unwanted sideburns. Many men grow side locks into moustaches and beard.
