Certain glass frames are too boxy or may not be wide enough, or in other cases, the frames can take overpower your entire look.

So, before looking at our list of glasses for bald men, we wanted to help you think about different styles and why they work best on certain face shapes.

How to find the Perfect Glasses

Every guy wants that perfect look. Here are a few tips to help you select the right pair of frames to go with your shaved head.

1. Match to Your Face Shape

Everyone’s face is unique and may not match up to our list of shapes exactly. You can pick your appropriate shape with our guide key (below) and also match it to a beard.

Finding the best glasses starts first with determining your face shape
Face shape guide helps with determining the style of glasses.

Face Shapes explained

  • Oval: Longer than it’s wide with oblong and narrow bone structure, typically high cheekbones.
  • Round: Wide brow and forehead with full cheeks and jaw.
  • Square: Wide hairline with a slightly wider or matching width jaw.
  • Rectangular: Longer face with a squared jawline and hairline
  • Triangle: A narrow forehead with a larger jawline.
  • Diamond: Narrow hairline with large cheeks and narrow chin.
  • Inverted Triangle: Wider forehead with a much narrower chin, typically pointed.

Now that you’ve determined your face shape, you can match glasses that’ll compliment your bone structure and bald style.

See our Complete Guide Face & Head Shapes.

2. Match Face Shape to Glass Frames

Here’s a look at the best glasses for each face shape:

  • Round Faces: These face shapes work best with square eyeglasses, rimless, browline or Clubmaster style glasses, Wayfarers, and bold colorful frames.
  • Oval Faces: Round frames, aviators, and square glasses balance out a narrower face.
  • Square Faces: Rimless and round frames offer the best balance for round faces.
  • Triangle Faces: It’s best to draw attention to the top of your face if you have a triangle shape. Rectangle and oval shapes work best with bold color choices.
  • Diamond Faces: Thick frames in oval and round shapes, horn-rimmed glasses, and rectangular frames work well with a diamond bone structure.
  • Inverted Triangle Faces: Choose light frames like horn-rimmed glasses, light colors, square frames, or round frames.

3. Try Glasses on at Home

There are plenty of online retailers willing to give you a free trial or try on phase before you purchase anything. For instance, Warby Parker allows you to try on five different pairs of glasses, and they also have recommendations based on face shape.
