Tip: A good option for people with grey hair would be subtle colours like silver or pastel shades.
The right sunglasses for your hairstyle
You like having short hair or a ponytail? Or showing off your long curly locks? Whatever your preferred style, you’ll find a suitable pair of sunglasses. The important thing is that hair and shades aren’t engaged in a battle for attention, but rather function as a team. However, as in all areas, personal taste should be the deciding factor.
Hair that is short, braided or worn up
If you have short hair, or like to wear your hair up or braided, then your sunglasses will take centre stage. As long as you avoid excessively large or striking frames you can’t really go wrong. Frames that are transparent, narrow or made out of metal all provide a subtle, good match.
As large and striking frames can appear too in-your-face with straight hair, a more subtle, discreet frame would be a smart choice.
Curly and voluminous hair
Sunglasses that are striking and/or have a large frame go well with curly hair, while more restrained frames may go unnoticed. So don’t be shy about grabbing an expressive pair of sunglasses that complement your hairstyle.
Ponytails are a real eye-catcher, so unobtrusive sunglasses, for example with light frames, are often a good match. But if you want to make a bolder statement, larger frames in light shades can also go down a treat.

Whether cool or warm skin tone, long, short, red or blond hair: these characteristics play a big part in determining which sunglasses look best on you. Bear the above tips in mind and you should have no trouble finding a pair of shades that look tailor-made for you. But of course you have to trust your own gut feeling too. With a combination of these two things, you can’t go wrong.
