Recently, I made my yearly — OK, it's been more than a year — trip to the eye doctor. I've worn glasses for about 14 years now, and from one "trendy" frame to another, I've had lots of different looks. Since some were good, and others I'd prefer to forget, that was the inspiration behind this series of posts on choosing eyeglass frames. Since we've already looked at face shape, eye color, and skin tone, for the final installment of this series, let's look at how your hair color can help guide you when making a choice between those funky green shades or whimsical yellow specs. To check out some tips, just keep reading.
- Warm or cool?: If you have cool-toned hair, you probably have ashy brown, dishwater-blond, salt-and-pepper, silver, platinum, coffee brown, or bluish-black tones in your hair. If you've got warm-toned hair, perhaps you have golden blond, golden brown, copper, auburn, flat black, dirty gray, or strawberry blond locks.
- For cool tones: Frames that are black, pink, plum, blue, burgundy, purple, magenta, cool green (not too much yellow), dark tortoise, rosy, and white can be flattering for those with cool tones in their hair.
- For warm tones: Think red, warm reds, off-white, light tortoise, coral, warm green, gold, copper, peach, or khaki frames to complement warm-toned hair.
- A few more tips: Depending on the tone of the hair, black-haired beauties just might be lucky enough to wear whatever they like. Just like black clothing is so versatile, black hair can be, as well. For silver-haired folks, a bright pop of color is always flattering — even red or a bold purple. Just don't go too drab. For blond locks, consider a clear or whitish frame, and for brunettes, it's best to determine whether your undertones skew more ashy/cool or golden/warm before making a spectacle of yourself.
