Which hairstyle gets your vote?

Glasses can be a serious game changer for anyone who suddenly has to wear them on a daily basis, or anyone who has changed their regular frames for a whole new look. Getting specs changes the way your features are accentuated and can make it seem like your hair is behaving kind of differently.

The good news is that there are absolutely no rules about what hairstyles you can and can't wear with glasses. If you like it, just do it!

To help inspire your next spec-tacular look, we're zooming in on two evergreen looks: the sleek ponytail and side-swept waves.

The big question is, which style do you like best?

Smooth operator

A smooth, sleek ponytail is a great option for any occasion. It's also perfect for showcasing your frames as it keeps all of the hair back off your face.

Styling tip

To instantly tackle frizz and add shine to your look, spray L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray all over.

Make some waves

Side-swept waves, also known as Hollywood waves, create a classic hairstyle that has been reigning supreme on the red carpet for decades. If you want to go glam with your glasses, this could be the perfect hairstyle for you!

Styling tip

If you have trouble getting your hair to hold a curl, pool each piece in your palm when it comes off the iron, spray it with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray, then pin it up to cool.

So, which look will you vote for?
