These days, a lot of people are embracing shaved or bald heads. While having your head shaved can put a lot of money in your pocket ‘cause you don’t need barbershop visits and expensive hair products any more, bald guys also have a lot to experiment with now, especially if they wear glasses. Read on for an elaborate guide on choosing glasses for bald men.
Glasses according to your face shape
The structure of your face is undoubtedly the most important factor for choosing the right pair of glasses. It is especially more defined in bald men, so considering the frame shape before buying becomes important. Your jawline, chin and forehead play a prominent role in defining your face shape. Here are the glasses types according to the face shape of bald men:
Round shaped face
Round faces are characterised by soft features and uplifted cheekbones.
To highlight the facial features and bring a contrast, you need angular glasses with sharp lines like rectangular glasses.
Square shaped face
A square-shaped face features bold and evident cheekbones and jawlines with an equally proportionate forehead. They have an almost straight line running between the forehead and the jawline.
Round glasses work best to soften the sharp features and bring an overall balance.
They have a broad forehead that narrows down to the jawline. They are characterised by a narrow chin.
This is the most versatile face shape. However, to further accentuate the features, you can choose glasses with a highlighted lower rim or wayfarer glasses.
With a broad jawline and a narrow forehead, these are just opposite to a heart-shaped face.
To bring proportion to the face, try glasses with highlighted upper rims and a frame front slightly wider than your forehead. Cat-eye glasses and browline glasses work best for this purpose.
