Pretty serious taboo here - girlfriend hair, and bringing up certain subjects.

My girlfriend has great hair, and a lot of it. This extends in that she has more hair than is typical on her arms, and shaving her legs doesn't last more than a few days. But, it also means that she has quite a bit of moderately dark hair on her upper lip. While I really think that she's really, really beautiful, and know that completely, sometimes I feel like this hair is kind of noticable, and in certain light, it looks... a little offputting.
I know that the most obvious thing to do is to love my girlfriend and see that she's beautiful including this, and I'm going to stick to that plan. But, is this area so taboo that it should never be brought up? Are there ways that people bring this up? How do women feel about this kind of thing? I'm obviously not trying to be a jerk, but honestly it can occasionally look funky in a not-great kind of way.
