Q. JoJo I was told that Terry’s Place does waxing. I have a mustache and chin hair. My brother said that if I wax or shave it, the hair will grow back thicker is that true?

A. No that’s not true. Shaving your facial hair does not make them grow back thicker. Terry’s Place has been Detroit’s #1 Eyebrow arching boutique since 1971, specializing in eyebrow arching and facial hair waxing. Contrary to rumor, removing your facial hair does not make it grow back thicker. It’s the complete opposite actually. If you continue to get waxing done on an area and do nothing else, you will find that the hair grows back finer and lighter.
