Wearing glasses doesn't mean sacrificing style, and the world of wigs offers a fantastic solution for those who want to switch up their look without compromising comfort. In this blog post, I will explore the exciting possibilities of wigs for glasses wearers, discussing styles, tips, and tricks to help you embrace your unique fashion sense.
What kind of wigs are best for glasses wearers?
Choosing the right wigs for glasses wearers involves considering factors such as face shape, glasses style, and personal preferences. Here are some types of wigs that tend to work well for those who wear glasses.
1. Lace front wigs
Lace front wigs have a sheer lace front that mimics the natural hairline, providing a realistic look. They allow for versatile styling and can be pulled away from the face, reducing interference with glasses frames.
2. Pixie cut wigs
Pixie cut wigs, with their shorter length, can be an excellent choice for glasses wearers. The shorter style minimizes interference with the glasses frames and provides a chic and easy-to-maintain look.
3. Bob wigs
Bob wigs, whether short or long, offer a classic and versatile style that complements various face shapes and glasses styles. Bobs can be customized to suit individual preferences and provide a polished appearance.
4. Layered wigs
Layered wigs add texture and movement to the hair, creating a dynamic look that can balance the presence of glasses on the face. Layers can be adjusted to suit different glasses styles.
5. Wigs with adjustable straps
Opt for wigs with adjustable straps or hooks at the nape of the neck. This allows you to customize the fit for comfort and security, ensuring the wig stays in place even when wearing glasses.
Do people who wear glasses have to opt for a wig with bangs?
People who wear glasses do not have to opt for a wig with bangs; the choice of hairstyle, including whether or not to have bangs, is a matter of personal preference. While bangs can be a stylish and flattering option for some glasses wearers, there are various wig styles that work well without bangs. Here are a few considerations.
Pros: Bangs can soften facial features, draw attention to the eyes, and create a youthful and trendy look. They can also cover the forehead, providing a frame for glasses.
Cons: Depending on the glasses style, long or straight bangs may interfere with the frames. Constant contact between bangs and glasses could lead to discomfort or the need for frequent adjustments.
2. Without bangs
Pros: Wigs without bangs can offer a clean and sophisticated appearance. They may reduce the risk of interference with glasses frames and provide more flexibility in styling.
Cons: Without bangs, the forehead is exposed, and some may prefer the added coverage that bangs provide.
How do you put a wig on with glasses?
Putting on a wig when you wear glasses can be done with ease by following these steps.
1. Prepare your hair
If you have long hair, secure it in a low ponytail or braid to keep it flat against your head.
Use a wig cap to keep your hair in place. Ensure that the wig cap is snug and covers all your hair.
2. Adjust your glasses
Make sure your glasses are adjusted comfortably on your nose. If possible, push them slightly upward on your nose to create space for the wig.
3. Position the wig cap
Place the wig cap over your head, ensuring it covers your hair completely. The cap should sit comfortably around your hairline.
4. Hold the wig
Hold the wig by the ear tabs (the small fabric sections on each side of the wig) with the back of the wig facing you. The front of the wig has the tag.
5. Tilt your head forward
Tilt your head forward slightly to allow the wig to easily slide onto your head without interference from the glasses.
6. Place the wig on your head
Position the front of the wig just above your eyebrows. Slide the wig over the wig cap, ensuring the ear tabs are aligned with your natural ear position.
7. Adjust the wig
Gently pull the wig backward, adjusting it to sit securely on your head. Make sure the wig covers the wig cap and that there are no visible edges.
8. Secure the wig
Adjust the straps or hooks inside the wig to achieve a snug fit. Some wigs have adjustable straps at the back or hooks that you can use to customize the fit.
9. Adjust your glasses again
Once the wig is securely in place, adjust your glasses if needed. Ensure they sit comfortably on your nose without pressing too tightly against the wig.
10. Style as desired
Style the wig as desired, whether it's brushing, combing, or arranging the hair. Take care not to dislodge the glasses during styling.
With the right wigs, glasses wearers can effortlessly elevate their style, expressing their personality and embracing fashion trends. Experiment with different styles, lengths, and colors to discover the perfect combination that complements both your wig and glasses, making a bold statement that reflects your individuality.
