    I realise this may be a weird question, but its something that has made me self concious most of my adult life.

    I have always noticed little hairs under my eyes - nowhere near as thick or dark as my beard, but it makes me slightly paranoid.


    I know they cannot be seen by the naked eye at a normal distance, and its probably just me who can see them close up in the mirror - I do tweezer them out, just like the middle of my brow.

    I just wanted to ask what other guys think and their experiences.

    it's completely normal. Best thing you can do is leave them alone.

    its normal and nobody else notices but if you're really self conscious you can take them away by using a really old persian method by twirling a twisted string around them called "threading". It's on wikipedia or any google search

    Just wait...as you age they grow thicker and darker, until (like I learned working in a nursing home) you will have to shave them. Lucky you huh?

    Thanks for the replys guys - its good to hear I'm not the only one and its nothing to worry about.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one... and I should stop beiong concerned about it.

    I suppose this leads to another question.... how high up your cheeks do you shave?

    Ok, this gets a little complicated, but see if you can follow me here.

    I shave as high up as there is beard hair.

    Whew! Did you get that?

    cool Carlson... how then do I get my post count up... you seem to be quite high there.

    Do I answer random posts with no actual content on issues I'm unconcerned about?How does it work for you?
