The good news is there are plenty of short hairstyles for over 70 with glasses that you can choose from. If you wish to know which hairstyle to go for, keep reading!

Which Hairstyle Would Work Well with Your Glasses?

One of the biggest considerations you should keep in mind is the type of glass frames you have. Here are some of our hairstyle recommendations for various kinds of glass frames that you can choose from:

Thick Frames

If your glasses have thick frames, go for a haircut with lots of volume and plenty of movement (hello curls!), and avoid flat and straight hairstyles as much as possible.

But if you’re looking for a clean look, pulling your hair into a bun is the way to go.

Classic Frames

Same with thick frames, curly hairstyles, and messy and undone look goes well with this kind of frame.

Butterfly Frames

Keep up the glamorous and stylish look by pairing it with loose, textured hair. You can go for layered short hairstyles if you have these eyeglasses.

Pro Tip: Avoid straight and blunt bangs when wearing glasses because they can cover up half of your face.
