Hairstyles to Wear with Glasses

If you have to wear glasses for necessity rather than for fashion, then you may be familiar with the stress of looking your very best, then feeling like you've ruined the whole look with your glasses. So today, we are giving you the tips and tricks to learn so you can pull off any hairstyle with your glasses, and to help you make your specs an accessory instead of just a necessity.

We know that when it comes to style, our glasses can be a blessing or curse — eye makeup can smudge more, and you are more likely to get weird dark shadows when you take pictures. It is not all doom and gloom though; glasses are an amazing way to draw attention to your eyes but the key is to match it with the right style. 

Keep reading to see some of the most stylish and cute hairstyles for women who wear glasses.

Fringe With Glasses

If you are getting your fringe re-trimmed or cut for the first time, take your glasses with you so that they get the right length and shape to frame your face. If you want the shape to stay 100% the same, get your fringe dry cut. A blunt cut is perfect for thicker, black ringed glasses and a stunning side fringe for colourful thin framed glasses, think Zooey Deschanel in New Girl. If you are not ready to take the fringe plunge yet try a clip on a fringe. It works wonderfully with a honey bun and looks great with glasses.

Avoid long fringes as they will likely long overshadow the glasses or worse, the ends will fall under the frame cause an irritation to your eyes. You should keep the length of your fringe above your glasses for a fabulous style that won’t irritate your eyes. The key to pulling off your fringe with glasses is to make sure the hair is properly cut and styled, and well maintained.

Glasses and Long hair

If you are a fan of layered hair, go with waves. This allows your locks to have movement and flow and like the beehive updo, it helps balance your face. Straight hair looks amazing with the right style of glasses so wear your hair the way you usually do when picking out your specs.

A middle part with straight hair is a fantastic choice if you have long hair – it almost instantly transforms your look from geek to chic in seconds. If you prefer something a little more flirty or playful, wear your hair in loose curls/ waves or add curls to your ends to add volume to your hair. Loose curls and waves looks effortless and the addition of glasses often adds interest to your look. Cat-eye glasses are amongst our favourite frames for long haired ladies. These frames add charm to your face for a sophisticated look.

High Ponytail or High Bun

Not only are these two hairstyles timeless and elegant, but they easy to achieve and require minimal effort. Wear your glasses with either of these sleek hairstyles for a chic, sophisticated look, or perhaps opt for a casual laid-back look with a messy bun.

As this hairstyle keep all your hair away from the face, you should opt for frames that suit your face shape. Cat-eye frames will take your look from plain to formal, while big round frames will give you a chic minimalist appearance. Patterned frames also look good with these updos as they add character to monochrome outfits and allow the glasses to make a statement.

The Beehive

It isn’t just Bridget Bardot that can rock a beehive. This style is particularly great if you have thicker frames. Thicker frames are more popular now, but this does mean that they take up more room on your face. When that happens, you run the risk of your face looking out of balance. A fuller style, like a beehive, rebalances everything so it draws attention back to your eyes and lips.

If you’re need of inspiration, look no further than the iconic Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's character. Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly wore the iconic ‘Manhattan’ sunglasses which till today, are still popular and glamourous. While sunglasses tend to be an easy accessory for glamour, you can do the same too with your glasses. Make like Hepburn and pair your updo with a classic tortoise shell frame. We are certain this look is a look of glamour, elegance and style. This feminine design is flattering and accentuates your facial features.

Update your beehive style and srtyle the back as you wish.
