Tips For Wearing Hijab With Glasses
Here are some hijab styles that allow glasses to fit in perfectly:
- Avoid completely wearing glasses outside or above the veil. I keep it within the limits of the veil.
- Choose a good material from the veil, preferably if it is not very attached to the face, so that the eyeglasses do not appear completely clear under the veil.
- Pick good glasses with reasonable edges and do not choose the bulky ones that gobble up most of your face, especially if your face is small.
- Choose glasses that fit the shape of your face. Consult a cosmetologist and optometrist alike.
- Avoid wearing the hijab that conflicts with the edges of the glasses. Meaning, don’t wear glasses with shiny rims with phosphorous veils. Bring the colors to match and smart.
- Avoid putting exaggerated makeup while wearing glasses and veils at the same time. There will be color chaos.
- If you want a quick and practical option, then the glasses with transparent edges are the best and will be consistent with most of the veil and clothing colors.
- Avoid covering the edge of the eyeglasses on your eyebrows.
- You can choose only the veil that covers the head and highlights the neck and ears.
- If you wear earrings at a time when you wear glasses with the hijab, choose earrings and glasses that are proportional.
Remember to adjust the glasses properly so that they don’t slide down your nose or press too tightly on your ears. You can also use non-slip nose pads or ear hooks to keep the glasses in place.
Experiment with different hijab styles and glasses until you find the perfect combination that suits your face shape, personal style, and comfort level. Don’t be afraid to try something new and step out of your comfort zone.
Lastly, remember that wearing glasses with a hijab is a personal choice and there is no right or wrong way to do it. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. Embrace your uniqueness and rock your glasses and hijab with pride!
