Maybe you’re on the lookout for a new pair of frames. Or maybe you just jumped on the trendy grandma glasses style. If you are one of those in the second category, lucky for you, glasses without a prescription are significantly cheaper so you can buy a couple of pairs to match your daily hairstyle choice. This is one of the routes to go when thinking of hairstyles for businesswomen who are too busy with work and would rather switch out eyeglass frames versus spend the time to attempt new styles for their strands. Either way, this opens up the possibility to instead match your glasses to your hairstyle.
1. Round Shaped Frames
The round-shaped glasses or also considered John Lennons’ frames go well with short bobs or loose, tousled curls. The classic round shape pairs with a looser look and balances out a hairstyle with more depth. Or on the other end, round frames also follow with the curves of a shaped classic bob.
2. Thick Frames
Thick framed glasses pair well with long hair pulled up in a polished ponytail or a curly style. With thick frames, they are already creating a stronger statement compared to other thinner styles and so a simple do pairs well with these glasses. Though you should avoid this style if you typically wear a very straight or flat hairstyle. This is too much of a contrast to this statement piece. So a hairstyle either out of the way or with lots of movement is your best choice.
3. Cat Eye Frames
These cat-eye style glasses have come back since their famed era in the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Back then they were paired with poodle skirts and frilly socks. Nowadays when you’re looking to rock these styles of glasses, though the skirts haven’t made a comeback yet, they are an excellent pair with top buns or curls. These are a strong statement pair of glasses and so adding a swipe of matte lipstick brings down the strength of this style for the office world.
4. Rectangular Frames
This style of frames is best accentuated with a classic bob. The curve of a short bob gives enough roundness to ease the straight lines of rectangular glasses. These are the one pair of glasses that do not go with any type of hairstyle with bangs. So that being said, if you already rock the bangs look, you are better off staying away from this style of specs. Since they are already creating a sharp, straight line on your face, you may risk boxing in your facial features especially when paired with blunt bangs.
5. Oversized Frames or Geek/Grandma Style
This vintage style of frames has emerged in the “fake” glasses world in the biggest way. These glasses are the classic style that has been used in many movies to accentuate a geek or elderly person stereotype. These frames pair well with layers or a lot of volume. Perfect for the office setting, updos and ponytails are also hairstyles for businesswomen that can be worn with this style of glasses. Avoid these glasses though if you have a super short cut. Oversized frames already take over a large portion of your face and so a short style can be too much when paired together.
Whether you’ve been rocking the same specs for the last 15 years or you just jumped on the clear lens trend, you want your glasses to be displayed proudly. Especially in your place of work, your glasses add an additional level of distinguished boss babe vibes. Though seductive hairstyles work perfectly with glasses too, they are not always the most professional for the office. Whether you are trying to find the perfect hairstyle for your favourite pair of glasses or a new frame style for your already set hairdo, there are an array of options.
All that you need to do is find your style and run wild with it!
