How to Find the Perfect Glasses for Grey Hair

- A Complete Guide

As the saying goes, "the older you get, the wiser you become." And with that wisdom comes the realisation that, as we age, grey hair is a natural part of the ageing process, and while some people choose to dye their hair to cover up those pesky silver strands, others embrace their grey locks. But whether you're trying to cover up your grey hair or show it off with pride, one thing is for sure: the right pair of glasses can make all the difference.

There is a big benefit to having grey hair when you choose your stylish eyeglasses: your options are endless! You can choose every kind of frame since grey hair colour does not clash with any frame colours. However, If you're looking for glasses that will compliment your grey hair the best, you should consider the type of grey colour of your hair.

Eyeglasses for ‘salt and pepper’ hair

There are many types of grey hair, so we have to avoid generalising grey hair when choosing the perfect glasses. And when you are about to choose the right eyeglasses, you can either choose frames that are a similar colour to your grey hair, or you can go for a contrasting colour. Plenty of us have a salt-and-pepper colouration of grey hair. If you have salt and pepper hair, for example, you might want to opt for frames that are on the darker side, like black or tortoise shell. This will help to create a contrast between your hair and your glasses and make your grey hair really pop.

Eyeglasses for light grey hair

For those with light grey hair, you can afford to be a little more adventurous with your eyewear choices. 

Bold, vibrant colours will really stand out against your light grey hair, so don't be afraid to experiment with different hues. And if you're looking for a more subtle look, nude tones or metals are always a safe bet.

Eyeglasses for dark grey hair

If you have dark grey hair, you also have a lot of options when it comes to choosing the right glasses. Just about any colour will compliment your dark grey locks, so feel free to experiment. 

A lot of people think that black frames are the only way to go if you have grey hair, but that's not necessarily true. If you want your glasses to stand out, try a brightly colored pair or even a patterned pair. Just make sure that the frames are not too overwhelming, or they will overpower your look.

No matter what type of grey hair you have, there's a pair of glasses out there that will help you look your best. So don't be afraid to experiment until you find the perfect style for you.

Luxreaders has a practical Virtual Try-On that you can use to discover what you’d look like in many of our eyeglasses frames using your webcam either on your desktop or mobile device. Keep an eye out for the “Virtually Try On” button as you browse our Danish-designed eyeglasses on the site and check out how our glasses would look on you.

Eyeglasses for silver hair

If your grey hair has a touch of silver in it, you might want to try frames that are also silver. This will help to create a cohesive look. If your grey hair is more on the silver side, you might want to try frames that are a little lighter in colour, like white or cream. These colours will help to soften your look and give you a more gentle appearance. You can also experiment with different shapes and sizes of frames to find the perfect pair for your silver locks.

Of course, if you're not sure what colour glasses will work best for you, our team of experts are always happy to help. You can also check out the latest eyeglasses trends to get some inspiration when choosing your next pair of glasses.

Eyeglasses for short grey hair

For those with short grey hair, choosing frames with a bold colour or unique shape can help complement the cool tone of your hair. Some great options for this hair colour and length include tortoiseshell, vibrant red and blue eye frames. On the other hand, oversized glasses or those with metallic accents may wash out your features. As you browse for eyeglasses, keep in mind how they will complement not only your face shape but also your beautiful grey locks.

What kind of glasses looks good with grey hair?

Once you have decided on the colour of your eyeglasses that matches your type of grey hair, it is time to find the style of glasses you prefer. Do you like a more traditional look, or are you looking for something a little more modern?

If you want to keep things simple and classic, go for a pair of oval or round frames. But if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, try out a pair of rectangular frames.

Once you've considered all of these factors, you'll be sure to find the perfect pair of glasses for your grey hair.

No matter what style of glasses you choose, remember that the most important thing is to find a pair that makes you feel confident and stylish. After all, grey hair is beautiful at any age!

Eyeglasses that offset grey hair

Have you ever noticed how glasses can completely change someone's appearance? They can make a person look smarter, more serious, or even add a touch of chic sophistication. But glasses can also have a powerful effect on grey hair, specifically in offsetting it. By choosing frames in complementary colours, glasses for grey hair can create the illusion of fullness and depth in the hair. Additionally, glasses with bold designs can draw attention away from any sparse silver strands. So for those looking to cover up their grey hair without resorting to dyes or extensions, glasses may just be the perfect solution. And bonus - they also provide the functional benefits of improved vision! So why not give glasses for grey hair a try and see how they transform your overall look.

What colour of eyeglasses frames make you look younger?

While glasses are usually a necessary accessory for those with poor eyesight, they also have the potential to enhance your overall appearance. In terms of making you look younger, glasses with warm-toned frames tend to be more flattering. Shades like gold, brown, and red can complement greying hair and give a vibrant pop of colour to your face. Another option is to choose glasses with transparent frames or pastel frames, which have a softer, more delicate look. Ultimately, the best glasses for making you appear younger depend on your unique features and skin tone - try out different styles before committing to one specific pair. Ultimately, it's important to feel confident and comfortable in your glasses - they should enhance your natural beauty, not change or mask it entirely.
