Molly-Mae Hague has warned others against getting a hair removal treatment that left her with a “full beard”.
The Love Island star explained to fans in a Youtube video that she opted for the procedure to try and get rid of “peach fuzz” on her face – but unfortunately, the has instead caused the hair to grow back much faster than before, the Mirror reports.
Speaking to her followers, the 22-year-old PrettyLittleThing creative director said: “If you guys can see that I do have a little bit of a beard, we’re not talking about it.
“I need to speak to you guys about my battle with dermaplaning – and I wish I never got dermaplaning.
“I basically have a full beard now.”
Explaining dermaplaning she said: “it’s a type of facial, or you could actually do it yourself with a type of razor but I had a dermaplaning facial, where they remove the peach fuzz from your face to make your face so baby smooth and so soft.”
While trying out make-up in the video, posted on Wednesday, the influencer said: “Basically with the dermaplaning, I got into the habit of having a dermaplaning facial and my peach fuzz just grows back at rapid levels now.
“It was meant to sort of prevent it from growing back and mean that it would grow back less or something, but with any hair removal, like when you shave your legs, it means you have to start shaving them more, when you start shaving your arm pits like when you’re a younger girl, early teens, it means you have to always shave them.”
“It’s just one of those things, when you start doing it you can’t really stop.
“So yeah you could say I wish I never started the dermaplaning because I’m not the sort of person who keeps up regularly with my beauty treatments.”
Earlier this week, the 22-year-old showed off her new short hair cut on Instagram, revealing that her trademark long blonde tresses are no more.
Fans complemented Molly-Mae on the new look, describing it as “gorgeous”, while her boyfriend boxer Tommy Fury was one of the first to comment, writing: “blessed”.
The reality TV star has also been in the news this week, after an actor who she accidentally hit with her windscreen wipers at a drive-in horror movie experience, responded to Molly’s Instagram video of the unfortunate accident.
Molly-Mae shared the clip twice on her Instagram Stories last weekend and wrote atop the clip: “Sorry to the actor.”
Cinema worker Leigh Simpson, who played the zombie, took to social media to address Molly’s video, and criticised her reaction to the clip.
In a video on TikTok, Leigh showed a picture of herself in character, and fired back at Molly’s laughter.
“This is a message for the 6.2 million people who follow Molly-Mae on Instagram,” she said.
“Did anyone feel sorry for the zombie who got hit in the face with a wind screen wiper, because it was me,” Leigh added.
“This is me pre attack, just minding my own business. If you haven’t seen it, if you are not one of the many people who have seen it, twice, because she posted it twice,” she fumed.
However, Molly-Mae replied to Leigh’s video, and apologised profusely in a grovelling direct message, saying she hoped it didn’t hurt.
Leigh responded, telling her it was “fine”, and she’s used to “being bashed about a bit”.
