What glasses work best with your hairstyle

On the hunt for new glasses? Make sure you’re buying the best frames to match your ‘do to really pull off that smart, yet sexy vibe. We break it down and give you our best tips so all eyes will be on you.

Woman with full bodied hair and glasses

Full-bodied hair

Long, wide-framed frames. If you have full-bodied hair, either short or long (chunkier hair with depth on top and on the side), choose a shape that is longer than it is wide. This way, your face will be completely balanced out and elongated on all sides. Too small of a frame will make your face appear too small if your mane is slightly larger. Give Kate Spade a try!

Glasses for full-bodied hair

Bob/short hair

Tiny frames. To really accent your short style, try a smaller frame. If you choose a larger or oversize style, the focus will go directly to the glasses and not the hairstyle and overall look. Just make sure the frame isn’t too small to fit your face. We suggest bringing your girlfriend along to the optician to ensure you’re not looking too “old secretary-like.” DKNY is just the ticket for the perfect smaller frame.

Glasses for Bob/short hair

Long hair

Oversize frames. Have that ’70s-inspired big layered hair with bangs? The oversize style is an absolute must. (Plus, still one of the hottest trends into 2012.) The key is making sure the statement-making glasses do not overpower your look. If you have the long, big hair, your overall face will be perfectly framed with these “geeky-chic” glasses. We adore Warby Parker for this style. Plus, they’re all only $95 and when you buy a pair, they give a pair. (Now that’s something we can’t stop swooning about.)
