Do Models Shave Their Faces?

Jeff WestbrooksJeff WestbrooksQ: Do models shave their faces? Their skin always looks so smooth!

A:
Absolutely not, and you shouldn't either. Face shaving is such a masculine act that it can be psychologically confusing to do as a woman. If you feel like you have excess hair on your face, try waxing, plucking, using depilatories, or laser hair removal. You can also ask your doctor for Vaniqa, a prescription cream that slows hair growth in about four to six weeks. But you shouldn't obsess over a little peach fuzz. I've definitely seen my share of it on models' faces. The reason you haven't is because facial hair is pretty much always retouched out of photos.
