I have the same problem too!!!

I just wax and wax and wax and wax, and then use foundation that is the same colour as the shadow I"ve got going on in my lip. Otherwise, concealing around the lip (like right up to the red part) is what I've learned works best for me, especially on a budget! (i can't afford to wax all the time) I hope these tips help!

There are many options

You can get it waxed, threaded, and also pluck it yourself with a pair of tweezer. If you don't want to go through the pain of pulling out the hair, you can always try to find a hair bleach in the drug store that are made specifically for upper lip hair. The bleach will lighten your hair making it harder for people to notice.

I would say the best and most cost effective way to get rid of the upper lip hair is to use tweezers. It's too painful for me to do it myself so when I pay salons to wax it for me. Hope this helps! And let me know if you end up finding new ways to get rid of those unwanted hair!

Nair wax strips

They're made for bikini & facial hair, and its pretty easy to use. I cant remember exactly what they cost, but it's not anything ridiculous. And the strips come in different sizes, so the bigger ones you can always cut in half to make them last longer as well.

fair skin, fair hair but i still see it :(

I use cream hair removal specifically formulated for the Face. Currently using Nair brand. I love the product and the after effect but don't the leave the cream on longer than the allocated time. Even when you leave the cream on for the maximum amount of time recommended, my skin is really tight/dry after. I couldn't imagine how dry my facial skin would be if I left it on longer..

Is the skin above your lip darker or is it just hair?

If it's hair then that is easy to remove, but some women have darker skin above the lip. If that's the case you'd need to talk to a dermatologist on how to lighten that up.

Jolene Bleach is what I use and it is a cheap alternative to getting professionally waxed. I have a friend who has a bit of a moustache and she usually waxes but inbetween waxes or in a quick fix- bleach is great.

I use it regularily, I have a silly fixation on that area as well and I swear by bleaching. It is around 6 or 7 dollars for a tube and it will last you quite a while- a couple of months. Each bleaching lasts a few weeks too.
