Glasses: Tips for Matching Your Hairdo and Frames
By Kate on 8 May 2011
We let you know how to combine your glasses and hairdo to create a great look!
Whether you wear glasses all of the time or just some of the time, having a hairdo that will enhance and flatter your frames is a great option, so check out these hair tips for choosing the best hair color, hairstyle and glasses for you.
When it comes to any frames that you already have, work your hairstyle around your glasses with these tips:
If your frames are large then ensure they don’t take all the focus by wearing a hairstyle that has plenty of hair volume and long hair layers which will keep your beautiful features in focus, not your frames.
If you’ve got a small set of frames then let your hair take centre stage with a hairstyle that will open up your face and stop your look from becoming safe, demure and boring. A short crop that will show off your face or any hairstyle that pins your hair back off your face such as a ponytail or a half up half down hairstyle will suit.
As for knowing which frames to choose to compliment your hair, remember these tips when you’re picking out your glasses:
If you’ve got blonde hair than try black frames for a classic contrast.
Those with dark hair will benefit from dark colors or gold frames.
Red hair goes great with tortoiseshell and green colored frames.
If your skin tone is dark or olive then boost it with brightly colored frames.
A cool skin tone will look great with silver or black frames.
As for warm skin tones, give soft brown colored frames a try.
Because heart face shapes are wide through the forehead then any frames that are wide should be avoided.
An oval face shape should suit any type of style so go with something funky and have a little fun.
For a round face shape you don’t want anything that will make your shape any rounder so try angular and rectangular frames.
For a square face shape try oval or round frames to break up any strong facial lines.
