Thanks to a wide assortment of stylish frames (and the growing realization that almost nobody has absolutely perfect vision), the world of glasses has come a long way in recent years. More than ever, glasses are an accessory to showcase—or even style—an entire look around. But with great power comes great responsibility, and as new eyewear trends emerge, we glasses-wearers suddenly have a whole new realm of hairstyling to consider.
Whether you have a lofty prescription, blue light lenses to ease eye strain when looking at your devices, or choose to wear clear-lensed frames strictly for the vibe, a new look for your hair type and style await. And contrary to popular belief, finding a look that fits your frames may not be as tough as it seems.
Fortunately, as their popularity grows, eyeglasses are also becoming more and more commonplace among both the street style set and celebrities on the red carpet, providing inspiration for days. From Elle Fanning to Cate Blanchett, some of the most stylish celebs have demonstrated that glasses can be a seamless element of any look, no matter the occasion.
With that in mind, we rounded up 13 of the best—and easiest—hairstyles with glasses to get you started. To top it off, we shopped out similar frames for every budget so you can emulate these on-point looks. (Pro tip: We love all of these hairstyles with sunglasses too.)
