Should you change your hairstyle when you get glasses?

Do fancy new frames really require a fancy new hairstyle to match?

Anyone who wears glasses knows that getting a new pair changes everything. At least, you feel like it changes everything. This is totally normal, whether your prescription changed or you just wanted to get some new specs. Your eyes will need a little time to adjust to new lenses and your peripheral vision can take a little while to adapt to new frames. The truth is, however, that although you've plonked something new on your face, by and large everything else stays pretty much the same, including your hairstyle.

Depending on the glasses you get and the haircut you have, you might want to make a few subtle changes to your 'do. The good news is that this doesn't have to be anything radical or time-consuming!

Choose wisely

If you don't want to do anything to your hair, make sure you invest in a pair of glasses that compliment your existing style. If you don't wear contacts, this may have to involve getting really, really close to the mirror when trying on the different pairs you like, but it's absolutely worth it when you end up with one you love. Similarly, if you're getting a new haircut, make sure your stylist sees you with your glasses on so they can tailor the look accordingly.

Remember your bangs

If you have long bangs, you might want to get them trimmed so they fit well with your glasses. Alternatively, you might want to grow them out so you can sweep them to the side. Either way, keep a can of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray on hand to give you great hold and a flyaway-free look.

Try a different part

If you think your hair could look better when teamed with glasses but you aren't sure why, try changing up your part. If you usually part your locks on one side, try the opposite instead. If you like to keep it in the middle, move it off-center. If you usually part your hair messily, try using a tail comb for a more accurate line. Experiment with it and who knows, you might just find that a new part was the exact thing your style was missing!

The main thing to remember is that your hairstyle and your glasses should be things you're comfortable wearing. Don't be afraid to play around with a few different looks, but if you're happy with the status quo, don't change a thing!
