Simple, but trendy makeup? Check! On-point spring-vibe shades or glasses? Check! Slaying the perfect hairstyle for your bespectacled face? Mmh. Well, that’s what we thought. Spec-wearing sisters across the African continent are doing injustice to their looks by hiding and/or not enhancing their hair accordingly.



Don’ts for Bespectacled Girls


Spec-friendly hairstyles are not intuitive. There are unspoken rules and guidelines to master hairstyles for bespectacled girls. For example, long bangs (AKA a fringe) may not be ideal as they bunch around the arms of your glasses. The shape, design and colour of your glasses may also impact your parting choice and ban you from even thinking about certain highlights.


The best idea? Don’t follow a cookie-cutter approach and copy something you saw in a magazine. It might not suit your lenses and could bog down your best features. It may take a little work to factor in all three, but you should try to match your hair to the shape of your face, personality and spectacles frame.



Dos for Hairstyles with Glasses


Many looks can enhance your natural beauty. Believe it or not, some looks can even make you appear flirty, nerdy, smarter or soften up your style. Whatever look you want, a professional stylist can help you achieve it. We love the short afro vibes with distinct partings to command the gaze. As mentioned, go for what works best for you!


Remember, whether you wear glasses or not, regular hair maintenance is a must! Maintain your mane the right way with a quality shampoo and conditioner, like the nourishing Dark and Lovely Fat Protein Shampoo and the detangling Dark and Lovely Knot Out Conditioner, and you’ll already be halfway to maximising your look and feeling fierce every day of the week!


A professional stylist knows how to use your features and specs to elevate your style. Don't view your glasses as mere add-ons – they can be fundamental to you rocking your natural beauty this spring. Find a salon near you to get expert recommendations about styles that are best suited to you and your specs.
