7 Head-Turning Hairstyles That Go Great With Glasses

2 MINUTE READ by Danielle Bennett

When it comes to picking out eyeglasses, the physical features we often consider first are face shape, complexion and eye color.

Understandable...our anterior features quickly determine which frames enhance our look, but did you know coordinating your eyeglasses with your hair can make (or break) your style ethos, too?

Surely, no one wants to sacrifice sight in order to look good and we'd never recommend you ditch your glasses and buy a new pair just to jazz up your hair.

But, if you already own eyeglasses and are possibly deliberating how to match them to your tresses, then you might be surprised by the impact, nudge nudge, wink wink!

Ok cute, but where do you start?

It's easy...take your eyeglasses straight to a hairdresser.

Hairstylists are your ace in the hole because they know how to use your hair as a tool to flatter your frames. They can make simple, real-time adjustments that compliment all lines and angles.

Ahead are seven of the best hairstyles for glasses wearers.  Discuss them with your hair pro...and start turning heads wherever you go.

1. Short Haircut with Bold Frames

A short hairstyle lets snazzy frames do all the talking.  But, if you aren't ready for a big chop, then style your hair to the side and out of your packs the same punch.

2. Lady-Like Hair Touches with Cat-Eye Frames

Take advantage of vintage looks with 1920's, 30's and 40's-inspired top buns and swirls. Ava DuVernay's interpretation is both nostalgic and modern.

3. Low Natural Pony with Oversized Aviator Frames

A polished, minimal hairstyle like a low pony worn off the face adds the perfect balance to larger, trendy frames. 

4. Fringe with Wayfarer-Style Frames

Avoid stick-straight, too-flat styles, as they create too much of a contrast with substantial frames. Instead, think loads of movement, like fluffy layers and wispy bangs.

5. Wavy Hair with Round Frames

Pairing round-shaped, Lennon-inspired specs with soft, mid-length waves creates instant symmetry.

6. Side Parts with Square Frames

A side part seamlessly softens the angles of square-shaped glasses.

7. Bob Haircut with Rectangular Frames

A bob haircut's round curves nicely offset the straight lines of rectangle-shaped glasses. Just avoid blunt-cut bangs with this style. The combination has a tendency to box-in facial features.
