Sick of glasses that don’t suit you? Our frame stylists are ready to help you find the perfect fit.
Choosing a new pair of glasses can be a daunting and unpleasant process for many glasses wearers.
One of the most common things we hear from customers is that choosing a new frame is not often an easy or enjoyable experience for them. The most frequent problems we hear from our customers are;
- they don’t know what suits them
- they can’t find glasses that fit them
- they’re sick of seeing the same designs at chain stores
- it takes them months to decide on which frames to buy
- they receive poor or no advice from staff
- they’re constantly having to get the frames adjusted because they were poorly fitted
Glasses are the first thing people notice about you – they’re in the middle of your face! So it’s important that they accentuate your face, compliment your colouring and capture your unique personality! Yep, you read that right – there’s more to glasses than just style! Whether subtle or a statement, your glasses should say what you want them to say about you! Glasses are a personal thing, so it’s important they are personally tailored for you as the unique individual you are.
What is a frame styling consultation?
A frame styling consultation is designed to make choosing frames a stress-free and enjoyable experience for you, and ensure your glasses do everything you need them to do. Our frame stylists work with you to determine which shapes, colours, fits and features will create the perfect frame for you.
Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect during your personalised frame styling consultation.
Step 1: Identifying your face shape
There are a myriad of tools available out there to help you identify your face shape. Typically, faces are placed into categories such as oval, square, round and heart shaped. Although these categories can offer a rough guide, faces are completely unique to the individual and so there are always exceptions to the rules. Identifying the characteristics and placement of key features such as your forehead, jawline and nose will provide a more personally tailored guide to understanding what shapes will accentuate and compliment your features.
For example, someone with a sharp jawline or pointed chin may choose a frame that has a rounded shape to bring softness, which will highlight this feature.
Step 2: Identifying which colours suit you
Colour ranges for glasses are growing bigger and better every year, and so identifying which colours best compliment you is an essential part of your frame styling journey. Your perfect colour palette is determined by more than just your skin tone. Colour can be used to compliment and even accentuate your hair and eye colour so it’s important to consider all of these factors.
One of the most common questions we receive from customers is whether choosing a statement colour will result in their glasses clashing with the colour of their clothes. In actual fact, people rarely pay attention to whether your glasses match your clothing. What they do notice is whether the colour of your glasses compliments your face and features. So with some great advice from the experts to find out which colours best suit you, you can be confident that your glasses will be always be versatile.
Step 3: Getting a professional fitting
A new pair of frames may feel comfortable when you try them on. But how do you know they’ll still be comfortable after hours of wearing them?
Your frame stylist will know exactly what to look for to ensure the perfect fit. Correct fitting of the frame’s key elements, including the nose bridge and temple tips, are crucial in ensuring your frames don’t pinch, slip or constantly need fiddling with to feel comfortable.
The most important frame styling rule of all…
