Yes, women can remove hair from above upper lip rather it is better if they had some hair on the place: الا اذا نبت للمرأۃ لحیۃ أو شوارب فلا تحرم ازالتہ بل تستحب (رد المحتار: 9/536)


If the eyebrows are wide then they can be set to bring to a normal condition, but it is not right to shave them: ولا بأس بأخذ الحاجبین و شعر وجھہ ما لم یشبہ المخنث (رد المحتار: 9/536)

Allah knows Best!
