As we all know, today glasses are much more than a simple vision aid. Glasses are fashion accessories, which can tie your whole outfit together. They can even draw attention to the face as well as distract from other features such as the hair. So, if you’re wondering which glasses suit your hairstyle, read on!
The Business Look
The business look is popular among glasses-wearers who work in offices or formal contexts. Glasses can even make an outfit look more intellectual and professional. Usually a formal look, long hair is tied back and more subtle glasses frames are worn. But that doesn’t mean boring! You could also have a frame colour that contrasts with your outfit, such as a red or burgundy frame. Still, avoid mixing too many wild colours, so that your entire appearance radiates “business”. Max Mara offers a wide range of classy models in this style.
Thanks to Victoria Beckham, this hairstyle is permanently on trend. With the bob hairstyle, the hair is relatively short and often tapered to the front. Sometimes it is even deliberately cut asymmetrically. At the same time, bob-wearers usually have straight hair, which can lend a serious or mature touch to the look. To add some playfulness and femininity to the bob hairstyle with glasses, cat-eye frames are a popular choice. If you also have dark hair, you can choose a coloured frame or tinted lenses to add a colour pop!
In recent years, the Ombré hairstyle has gained massive popularity. Here, mid-length to long hair is darker near the roots and gradually gets lighter towards the tips. This can look really nice with slightly wavy or curly hair. The overall effect is a classy beach look, as if you’ve spent your summer under the sun and dipped your hair into the sea! But it’s also a neat, manicured hairstyle that looks perfect back in the city. The contrast from dark to light can be stronger or weaker depending on your taste. To accentuate golden highlights in your hair, elegant glasses with a filigree frame in gold or silver work very well with this look. The Ray-Ban Round Metal or the JB Musickid, for example, would be perfect.
The fringe is a classic women’s hairstyle, which can be worn in different lengths and sometimes extremely short as a statement. If it’s on the longer side, reaching to the eyebrows, it covers a large part of the face. If you then wear very distinctive glasses or sunglasses, the combination of both could appear too chunky. For that reason, for a hairstyle with fringe and glasses you might want to consider rimless glasses or sunglasses to balance the look.
If you have curly hair, you might think it’s both a blessing and a curse. For all it’s beauty it can be an effort to maintain! Depending on the look you’re going for, you might consider choosing a more subtle frame to balance out a full curly mane of hair. Or if you want to make a strong statement, bold colours and circle frames can work really well with very curly hair. Otherwise, put your hair up and your up-do will go well with any shape glasses.
Of course, if you have your ideal look in mind, don’t let anyone put you off. As long as you feel comfortable, you can wear any glasses with any hairstyle. After all, style is about feeling confident wearing whatever it is you like.
