Myth: Blond hair is considered fine-textured, and brown or black hair is considered medium- or coarse-textured facial hair.

Fact: To determine facial hair type, rely on the texture rather than the color. By deciding if a client has fine-, medium- or coarse-textured facial hair, you may then discuss removal options that are best suited for her.

Myth: Common hair removal creams remove hair from the root.
