When it’s time to select a new pair of eyeglasses, it can be challenging to find the frame that feels the best for you. Eyeglasses come in a variety of colors, designs, and frame shapes. Understanding more about your face shape can help determine the frames that would look best on you. A round face shape will look best in a angular, narrow frame. Oval faces should choose a walnut shaped frame. Square faces can soften features with a narrow, oval shaped frame. A heart shaped face look best with frames that are wider at the bottom of the lens or rimless frames.
Your hair color may play a role in the best frame color for you. Individuals with warm hair colors (brown or black hair) do best to choose a lighter colored frame to add contrast. People that have hair on the lighter end of the spectrum can pick just about any frame color that they would like and may look to other features like eye color or skin tone to help make their decision.
Skin tone has the opposite effect from hair color on the best choices for the frame color. Those with lighter skin hues do best with similar frame colors, and those with warmer skin tones can pick and choose options that they enjoy the most.
Above all else, you should pick a frame that you like. There may be additional factors to consider when choosing the right frame for you, but perhaps the most important factor is your overall happiness and comfort. Our opticians will offer expert advice to make your decision as easy as possible.
