Sunglasses for men – Choosing the right shades for your face shape

Guys choosing the right sunglasses for your face can be hard. Try these face shape guidelines for men when you’re picking out your next pair of shades.

 

Round

Wear aviators or square, angular frames (like wayfarers) to add definition to your roundness.

Oval

Any shape sunglasses will work for you Mr. Oval face. Though, we recommend that the frames you choose are a least as wide as your face is at its widest point.

Square

Rounded, slightly curved frames; your face already has a strong structure, so wearing really sharp angular sunglasses might look to hard. Then again I like to look hard.

Oblong Rectangle

Lenses that are deeper than they are wide, avoiding frames with sharp geometric shapes, to soften and balance your strong facial structure.

Heart Shaped

Squarer frames will look best with your faces proportions. Avoid teardrop lenses or frames with to much detailing at the top.

Diamond Shaped

Any shape sunglasses will work for you too. But avoiding extremes (specifically very rounded, curved, or angular glasses). Lenses that are deeper than they are wide will work best for you, Diamond.

Triangular Face

Top heavy frames or teardrop shaped sunglasses will help balance out your face shape. Square, angular frames with deep lenses work for triangular faces too.

Fun with Bobby Pins

Your old boring bobby pins are dull and lame. Spice em up at home with just your nail polish collection. Just clip them to the edge of some sturdy paper or cardboard and go to town making whatever designs you like.  Instead of making them all different I’d suggest making a few of each color scheme or design so you can use a few matching ones at the same time. You can even try painting them with a touch of glue and adding sparkles.. but that gets really messy, better off getting some cool glitter nail polish and not worry about craft supply herpies (glitter the craft that stays with you forever, lol).

KE$HA’S HAIR FEATHERS

Maybe it’s just me but it looks like most of the recent photos of Ke$ha show her wearing either feather hair extensions or some sort of clipped on feather group on her ear rings or hair. And that’s besides all the other types of hair extensions she wears.  The last 2 are definitely feather bunches clipped into her ear rings, which look great and are much easier to add to your daily fashion than semi-permanent, crimped-in, hair extensions. But check out these 10 great shots of Kesha with all sorts of hair feathers and let me know what you think.

YOUR GUIDE TO FEATHER HAIR EXTENSIONS

Feather hair extensions are a great way to accessorize your hair easily. Read on for more info on how to do it your self, celebrity style photos of feather extensions and more info in why you may NOT want to use feather hair extensions.

Firstly, feathers and super versatile and can be straightened, washed, blow-dried and curled, and they can last up to eight weeks when care for properly! Second, you can get feathers for extensions in virtually any color or length you want (usually between 3 and 16 inches). Many feather extensions come in bundles of 4 to 6 feathers that are fused together to make it super easy to add them to your hair.

You can go to many salons for extensions that are professionally done, but it is also super easy to do on your own or with a friend. Check out the next section on DIY feather extensions.

HOW-TO DIY Feather Extensions:

Feather hair extensions are super easy to put in and take out by yourself or with a friend. See the supply list and how to videos below.

You’ll need:

  • Pliers (most supply shops will try to sell you special crimping pliers, but generally any pliers you have around will work fine).
  • Wire Loop or Hair Hook (you could also use a small crochet hook).
  • Micro crimping beads (silicone lined ones grab on to hair and feathers better and are easy to remove later).
  • ..and the feathers, duh.

 

Where the feathers come from:

When buying feathers or getting the extensions done at a salon consider where the feathers come from. According to Glamour “salons can’t get enough feathers to satisfy the demand of their clientele for the feather hair extensions.” Basically this means they are running short on roosters to slaughter for harvesting their feathers. Environmentalist and animal rights groups liken feather extensions to wearing real fur. I’m not here to make a decision for you but keep in mind that there are synthetic feather options available out there instead of natural ones.

 

Celebrities wearing feather hair extensions:

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha and others have been seen wearing feather hair extensions. The first photo below of Jennifer is a great look with long wavy hair.
