For many women, glasses are an essential accessory. But just because you need to wear them doesn’t mean that they aren’t, stylish and chic. Even if you’re rocking glasses for fun, it’s important that they compliment your hairstyle.
Remember to show off your individual style in a way that suits both your hairstyle and glasses. Creating curves where lines are thick or flat or adding definition to thin glasses or textures is key.
Hairstyles With Glasses
You can make your glasses your boldest and best accessory by working them into your overall look. Whether your hair is long, short, or ultra pixie short, your perfect hairstyle with glasses is on our list. We have 45 gorgeous and trendy hairstyles for women who wear glasses, so let’s have a look!
1. Wavy Bob + Round Frame
Bobs stand first in the list of best hairstyles for women with glasses as they open up the face making those gorgeous eyes really pop.
Try one with blunt layers and loose waves and couple it with round frames to balance out your sharp facial angles.
2. Braided Updo + Oval Frame
African-American beauties can tuck their Rapunzel-like box braids in a jumbo bun on top of their heads.
Such a high updo creates the illusion of an oblong face that can further be accentuated with oval glasses. Pull out a few chunks for a chic appeal. Or don’t!
3. Long Layers + Rectangular Frame
Long layers, with or without curls, are the go-to hairstyle for many ladies but tend to drag down the face. An ideal way to achieve some width is by putting on rectangle-shaped spectacles.
A deep side parting further helps to add a little asymmetry to your overall look.
4. Beach Waves + Hexagonal Frame
Sharpen your soft round facial features with stylish hexagonal glasses and opt for a bigger frame to bring a little drama into your life.
Maintain a summery on-the-beach look with mermaid waves and pin them slightly back to keep all the attention on your twinkling eyes.
5. Messy Bun + Aviator Frame
Aviator frames have stood the test of time and appear luxurious without a doubt. Young ladies looking for something cute, relaxed, yet super stylish can pair up their specs with a laid-back top bun.
Those with big bouncy curls should definitely not miss this look.
6. Pompadour + Wayfarer Frame
Pompadours are the best hairstyle for women with glasses who wish to elongate an otherwise chubby round/square face. Opt for a golden blonde long top with neatly clipped sides.
The wayfarer-type specs further impart a slimming effect by adding width around the eyes.
7. Finger Waves + Vintage Frame
Vintage hairdos have a place of their own. Look like a French Madame by creating S-shaped finger waves that can be done on all hair lengths including this bob.
Set the look on fire with some colored animal-print round spectacles and see jaws drop all around you.
8. Pixie Cut + Cat-Eye Frame
Pixies are a must-have for all the women who like to keep their manes short and low-maintenance. Ask for a handful of layers to complement your natural hair texture and finish off with a good hand-tousle.
The cat-eye frames are, again, ideal for widening an oblong face.
9. Shaggy Layers + Tortoiseshell Frame
Give off no-care vibes with a good old shaggy haircut. Uneven choppy layers, wispy tips, and super chic curtain bangs are all you need to ask for. Some highlights surely won’t hurt too.
The mottled tortoiseshell glasses, on the other hand, suit all face shapes and skin tones.
10. Wispy Bangs + Semi-Rimless Frame
Those who want to keep it workplace-appropriate can opt for an angled bob with side-swept wispy bangs and semi-rimless specs.
This fringe conceals a wide forehead without creating a suffocated look while the glasses are lightweight and focus all the attention towards the eyes and brows.
11. Sleek Ponytail + Rimless Frame
Make sure your eyes don’t get concealed behind the frames by opting for rimless glasses. Try them with a middle-parted ponytail for a professional appeal.
Use hair wax to slick down the strands at the front while gathering them high up at the back.
12. Blunt Bangs + Clear Frame
Bangs add a subtle touch of youthfulness to the square face shape while hiding a big forehead. Opt for thick blunt fringe if you’ve got a dense mane with a head full of choppy layers.
Clear aviator glasses will brighten up your eyes like nothing else. The glasses will complement your bangs and square face shape.
13. Space Buns + Two-Toned Frame
Space buns are another cute hairstyle for young women with glasses. They not only keep the hair neatly tucked away from the face but also help to put those colorful frames on full display.
Create high ponytails on both sides of the head and wrap them around into buns. Voila!
14. Dreadlocks + Wooden Frame
Stand out from the crowd with wooden specs rather than going for the usual plastic ones. Black beauties can accentuate their statement-making frames with gorgeous dreadlocks.
Take two chunks from above the ears and tie them back to achieve a minimalist half updo within a minute or two!
15. Long, Straight Hair + Oversized Frame
Ladies who love to be a little dramatic can give oversized frames a shot to look adorable no matter what.
Achieve a balanced look by keeping those gorgeous tresses simply straight. The middle parting creates the illusion of a perfectly symmetrical face.
16. Fishtail Braid + Square Frame
Fishtail braids never disappoint. They are the most intricate kind of knits that are easy to do with just a little practice.
Go for one or two braids with square frames guarding your eyes at the front. The shape of such specs enhances the angles of any face shape naturally.
17. Top Knot + Octagonal Frame

Pull out as many tendrils as you want to end up with a messy yet sexy hairdo that won’t be overlooked.

Give your curls a good chop with a caramel blonde balayage, and opt for browline frames to widen up a narrow forehead.
20. French Twist + Half-Moon Frame
French twist updos never go of out fashion and make an ideal hairstyle for women with glasses. Gather all the hair on one side and fold it into a roll leaving plenty of chunks out.
Half-moon frames not only look mystical but are the best option when it comes to reading books.
21. Asymmetrical Bob
An asymmetrical bob is no doubt a chic style statement. The hair is cut to jaw-length with one side at the front longer than the other. Hand-tousle the bob and rock oversized glasses with it. This look is suitable for ladies with naturally straight hair.
22. Jumbo Braid

31. Short Hairstyle for Women with Square Glasses
Short hairstyles are sweet and can add softness to the hard edges of glasses. Add side bangs that frame your eyes and a chin-length chop that will work perfectly with your lenses. Round shapes and soft layers will work wonders.
32. Long Hairstyle With Cat Eye Glasses
Gorgeously long locks look great with glasses. If your hair is thick, curly or wavy, bold frames are amazing. If your hair is straight or fine, subtle frames like these help pull your whole look together.
33. Medium Length Hairstyle with Aviator Glasses
Medium length hairstyles with a touch of wave look so perfect with glasses. If you prefer a middle part, ask your stylist to slightly feather the ends of your hair.

35. Hairstyle for Older Women with Retro Square Glasses
Shorter styles are popular and age-appropriate for older women. Feathered layers and choppy bangs provide a great background for dark, square-shaped frames. If you are aged over 50 with shorter hair and round glasses, try short, curled under bob or soft face-framing layers.
36. Women With Fine Hair + Black Full-Framed Glasses
Thick frames work wonders on fine-haired babes. In fact, the thickness of these glasses emphasize what texture your hair already has. They also bring out the darker portions of this hairstyle for a thickening, grounding effect.
37. Hairstyle for Round Face with Glasses
Long, straight locks are nice with glasses, but adding subtle layers is key if you have a round face shape. The layers will add some shapeliness to your look but keep a lot of the attention on to your gorgeous glasses.
38. Blonde Hair + Glasses
Blondes look great with brown and tortoise shell glasses. We especially love this bold tortoise pattern with the root growth on this style. If your frames are thick, try a causal bun with a few pieces left down to frame the face.
39. Women With Curly Hair with Glasses
Curly hairstyle looks beautiful with glasses, but the idea is to show as much of your face as possible. Big curly hair and large frames can easily overpower a look. You can even try matching your thin, bold frames to your hair color.
40. Wavy Long Hair + Glasses
Wavy hair is pretty versatile when it comes to choosing your ideal glasses. Frames can be thicker if your wavy hair is long and the bulk of the texture is away from the face.
41. Straight Hair + Round Glasses
Straight hair looks perfect with wiry thin glasses. The textures mirror each other while piecey, eyebrow-skimming bangs help fill out the rest of your face. The overall effect provides a fun look that is anything but overpowering.
42. Colored Bob with Glasses
Whether your bob is short or long, it will look absolutely adorable with glasses. Short bobs look chic with small frames with either square or round shapes, depending on your face shape. Go bigger if your bob is a longer, shoulder-skimming length.
43. Bangs With Square Glasses
Bangs can work well with glasses, but you’ll want to keep your look open. If bangs are too long and thick and your frames are thick as well, then you’ll conceal too much of your face. Try center part bangs with an angled cut.
44. Kids Hairstyle with Oversized Glasses
For kids, thick bangs and glasses work just fine. This look is especially charming if the glasses are oversized. If the glasses are more proportionate to the child’s face, then shorter bangs or sweet layers and delicate curls are perfect.
45. Old Woman With Pixie + Round Glasses
A great hairstyling option for women above 70 with glasses. We absolutely love pixie hairstyles and glasses. These pretty silver side bangs provide the perfect framing effect for showing off your glasses and the gorgeous face underneath. And why not match your glasses to your hair? The overall vibe will be pleasing and brightening.
There is so much versatility when it comes to wearing your best hairstyle with your favorite pair of complimentary glasses. Because glasses cover portions of your face, it’s a good idea to find styles that open up your look and work with your hair texture, not against it. Deciding what style you’ll go with is up to you and we hope you love what we have to offer!
