Bangs with Glasses: Looks that Will Flatter Your Frames

Turn heads with your bangs with glasses style. Whether you like your fringe blunt, wispy, or see-through, there's a look just for you.

If you wear glasses, seeing isn’t the only thing you struggle with. Picking a hairstyle can be a challenge, too. You have to consider not only your face shape, but also your frames. You might have thought of getting bangs, but then decided against it because fringe might be too overwhelming for your bespectacled face. Well, how about we toss that thought? Bangs and eyeglasses can go together. Check out these ideas on how to wear bangs with glasses.

10 Bangs with Glasses Hairstyles

1. Square Bangs with Glasses

Love the retro look? Wear a thick-framed pair of eyeglasses along with your square bangs.

Square bangs are simply bangs that are wide, reaching a little farther than your temples. It’s the perfect style for girls with an oval face because it tends to balance the length and width of your face.

2. Pixie Cut with Long Bangs

Look posh and stylish with a fuss-free short hairstyle.

We love long bangs on a pixie haircut! They make this short haircut more stylish and sophisticated. Add the glasses and you’ve just put together a scholarly yet fashionable look!

3. Messy Bangs

Yes, even your bangs can be worn messy.

We’ve always heard about messy hairstyles, but messy bangs? HmmmHowever, it turns out that you can also wear your bangs the messy way and even wear your glasses with them. They don’t need any maintenance because we’re after a messy effect! If you don’t like your hair down, you can also sport a messy ponytail or top knot to match the messy bangs.

4. Faux Bangs

Look like a celebrity with this hairstyle.

Want to see how bangs will look on you with glasses on but without cutting your hair? Go for this faux bangs look which is chic and classic.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair’s style in check by spraying on some Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold and Frizz Control Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Light Hold Hair Spray. Enjoy frizz-free hair all day that stays in shape for a long time without the heavy feeling.

5. See-Through Bangs

Add a bit of K-pop flair to your hairstyle with see-through bangs.

Wear this Korean hair trend with your glasses to revamp your everyday look. With see-through bangs, you no longer have to worry about your fringe and glasses covering your face. You can even combine see-through bangs with different hairstyles. If you’re in a playful mood, put your hair in space buns—they go well with see-through fringe, too.

Editor’s tip: Bangs require blow-drying for them to be styled well. Don’t forget to spritz Dove Style + Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray to prevent heat damage and help reduce frizz.

6. Wispy Bangs with Glasses

Wispy bangs go well with semi-messy hair. This combination makes for a chic but laidback ‘do.

Add a bit of drama to your look with wispy bangs. Sport these with glasses to create a hip and quirky look. Then, create blowout waves on your hair for that chic, messy-hair-don’t-care vibe.

Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé One Step Volume 5-in-1 Volumizing Mist on your hair before blow drying to add texture.

7. Blunt Bangs

Always blow dry your blunt bangs straight and down so they maintain their shape.

Look sleek and high-fashioned with straight, blunt bangs and glasses. Once you get blunt bangs, you have to commit to daily blow drying and styling so they maintain their shape. You also have to get a trim every three weeks so your bangs don’t interfere with your glasses.

8. Updo with Bangs

Create a laidback updo by loosening a few strands of hair and letting these frame your face.

You may have wanted to put your hair in bun on hot and humid days, but then decided against it. Buns and glasses will make you look too casual, right? Not if you do it in a stylish way. Side bangs or curtain bangs can help you look young and trendy when your hair is in a bun and you’re wearing glasses.

9. Side Bangs with Glasses

Give your hair some extra shine.

If it’s your first time having a fringe with your frames, get side bangs. They’re not as high maintenance as full bangs. You can grow out side bangs faster, too. Get a side fringe to go along with any hair length, whether you want to have long, goddess-like tresses or a chic bob.

10. Lengthy Bangs

Thin bangs also look great with glasses.

Bangs that meet the top of your frames is an extra high fashion look, in our opinion. Grow out your bangs and keep them sitting right where your glasses start to create this look.

With these chic hairstyles, you have every reason to wear bangs with glasses. Go ahead and get the fringe you’ve always wanted.
