Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best hairstyle for over 50 with glasses?

Women over 50 with glasses can try an elegant short bob or medium-length hair with long layers.

What is the best hairstyle for over 60 with glasses?

Women over 60 with glasses can try a layered bob, a sleek ponytail, or a pixie cut with a fringe.

How can I use hair color to complement or contrast with glasses?

If you have black hair, metallic shades, such as black, gold, or silver look good. Choose light pink, blue, or red frames for blonde hair, whereas avoid pastels and go for turquoise, black, or blue frames if you have brown hair. Blue, green, or red frames go really well with gray hair, while red hair pairs well with copper or tortoiseshell frames.

How can I maintain healthy hair when wearing glasses, particularly around the ears and temples?

Wearing tight glasses reduces the blood flow, which decreases hair growth. Some may even be allergic to the frame material, which can lead to hair thinning. You can either go for a short haircut with less volume at the ears or try to keep your hair loosely tied in a ponytail or a bun in a casual setting. Loosening up your glass frames a little won’t cause any harm.

How can I use accessories such as headbands or barrettes to style hair with glasses?

Try wearing fabric headbands that are thick, wide, and light so that you don’t end up hurting the back of your ears. You can wear barrettes at the back of your head or at the front to keep the hair out of your face.
