Hairstyles for large framed glasses
Covering the entire eye area, large frame glasses choose to dominate as the main feature of your face. Lenses can have frames that are thin or bold, rounded or squared. With this type of glasses, the key is to have a hairstyle that balances out the huge frame, preferably the ones with layered cuts and extra volume on the top area of your head.
1. Korean Natural Bun – This natural updo-look is simple and very easy to do, and looks cute with large eyeglasses. The large bun on top of your head balances out the focus from your large framed glasses. You’ll need two elastic bands. Simply tie a high ponytail and at the last loop, make a top knot. Create a donut out of the top knot. Want a bigger bun? You can use a hair donut to get at better shape.
2. Bob with Bangs – Thus cute hairstyle works very well with large round framed glasses. Work out a basic or layered bob cut with side bangs. You can either have it short or long enough to frame the curves of your jawline.

4. French Braids – Tired of straight hairstyles? Try mastering French braids! A huge French braid at the top of your head and goes all the way to the back looks cute and gorgeous even with glasses. The added volume that looks like a headband will help balance out the focus from your large frames.
Hairstyles for small frame glasses
Many people choose this type of frame because of versatility on different face shapes. The frames look cute and non-obstrusive on any outfit or hairstyle. The only problem with small frame glasses is that many hairstyles tend to box in the entire face, making all your facial features smaller and narrower. Open hairstyles work best with this type of glass frame.
1. Super Short Gamine – If you have straight and, fine hair, with small framed glasses, you’ll look better with short hair. Gamine hairstyles look great with small glasses, especially for those with round and delicate facial features.
2. Pixie Hair Parted Sideways – For those with straight hair and small frames, pixie cuts works well and creates a cute hairstyle for women with glasses. It opens up your face and accentuates your jawline and cheeks. Consider parting your short hair sideways for added style.
3. Twisted Half-up – If you have long, straight or curly hair and small framed glasses, try hairstyles that put hair away from your front, keeping your entire face and ears visible. Try a twisted half-up, just part some locks of hair from your sides and twist them. Tie the locks together at the back, by elastic bands or hairclip. You can also try braiding the sides.
When visiting a salon for a new hairstyle, always bring your glasses with you so that your hairstylist can match the cut and style that fits with your glass frames.
