Okay to wax: Yes, it is okay to wax the very fine hair on your face. It will not cause any damage but may cause redness and short-term irritation. Just plan ahead when you wax. Take a shower first, then dry your skin. You may want to avoid putting any lotions or creams on your face immediately after waxing. Let the irritation resolve first.
