I'd try waxing. Alot of women wax their upper lip. It's nothing to be embarassed about.

i wax my lip. it ain't no thing. but i must say, it's more uncomfortable than eyebrow waxing. most places charge around $5 for it, so I've found anyway.

Well you have many options acually, you could try waxing, you could "Nair" it, or you could get laser hair removal.

(I'd be careful with Nair. Some people experience irritation from it, and I'd be especially cautious with it around your mouth and mucus membranes.)

I wax it and it's no big deal. But if you're afraid to wax it I'd suggest bleaching it. At the pharmacy you can buy Jolene Bleach. You leave it on for about 5 minutes and the hair turns blonde and you can't see it anymore.

Thanks for the tips....a few questions though...with waxing, how long does it take for the hair to grow back, and does it leave little dots like where you shave and does the hair grow back darker? Also with bleaching, ive seen alot of people who have obviously bleached as it goes kind of yellow and stands out from their skin, i have really fair skin...Thanks!

Fair-skinned people fare better with bleach than darker people. After all, there is a stronger contrast in blonde against brown.

As for waxing, I don't get dots, but occasionally, some pores get blackheads. that's nothing a blackhead remover can't take care of, and pore-cleaning face washes keep it to a minimum. I wax maybe every 6 to 8 weeks, but I don't mind some growth. if it bugs you, then maybe every month should suffice. When it does grow back, the hair doesn't come in thickly.
