Don’t worry, your eyeglasses-and-hat combo won’t hide your face. In fact, a cute bucket hat and a trendy spectacle frame can make you stand out and give you your signature look.

Editor’s tip: Make your hair smell fresh all day by washing it with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo. It has five floral essences that make your hair five times more fragrant. 

2. Low Ponytail

Put your hair in a sleek, low ponytail if you want a simple but chic look. It’s a great hairstyle when working from home, and it goes with eyeglasses, too!

Editor’s tip: Nail this hairstyle with the help of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Smooth Hold Hairspray. It gives your hair a light, invisible hold that leaves it smooth and sleek. 

3. Top Bun

As the popular messy hair quote says, “messy bun gets things done!” Pair it with eyeglasses with perky frames, and you got yourself a quirky look.

4. Blunt Bangs

Blunt bangs can make you look chic and edgy, especially when you wear eyeglasses. To style your bangs, blow dry them right after you step out of the shower to keep them in place. Then, you can style the rest of your hair the way you want it to.

One drawback about having blunt bangs is that they can be high-maintenance. Make sure you go to the salon regularly to have your bangs trimmed so they won’t get in the way of your eyes and eyeglasses.

5. A Pixie Cut

Short hair can make you look fresh-faced, and a pixie cut is one of the best hairstyles for glasses wearers. You get to show off your face shape and your amazing glass frames. You can even get creative with different ways of styling your short hair.

6. Wavy Lob

More and more women are sporting wavy bobs and lobs and we are not surprised by this. After all, this hairstyle looks fresh and is a good option if you don’t want to cut your hair too short.

7. Medium Bob with Full Bangs

Baby bangs are totally trendy! If you’re gunning for an edgy look, cut your bangs short and putting on your glasses! Use a roller brush to style your baby bangs inward for the best finish. This will definitely make each day seem like a runway day.

Editor’s tip: Keep your bob bouncy by using Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo. It enhances your hair’s natural volume by up to 95 percent and leaves your hair nourished. 

8. Straight and Layered

Whether you’re working at an office or from your home office space, you should try wearing this straight and layered hairstyle with your glasses. It looks relaxed and casual enough to still be worn to a cafe (in case you have internet problems) or to the convenience store for a gulp of orange juice.

Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo to keep it nourished and strong as it grows. 

9. Long and Relaxed Waves

Long, loose waves also go well with eyeglasses. To create this hairstyle, use a wide-barreled curling wand to make waves that are huge and bouncy. Then, gently brush your waves to make them loose.

10. Bob with See-through Bangs

If you want bangs but don’t want to cover your forehead, go for see-through bangs. Pair this type of fringe with a chin-length bob for a fresh look.

11. Space Buns

In the mood for a fun and quirky look? Create this ‘do by tying your hair in pigtails and forming a bun on each side. Let this hairstyle, along with your eyeglasses, give personality to your look.

12. Curly Short Hair
