Consider Your Face Shape

The best eyeglass frames for your face has less to do with whether or not your head is shaved than the general shape of your face. For example, if you have a round face, you should try square or angular eyeglass frames and avoid round frames.

Shaving Your Head Changes Facial Proportions

Shaving your head, however, changes the way your face looks and the way your eyes, nose and mouth appear in proportion to one another. Your face shape may also be easier to distinguish without your hair in the way, making it more important to choose frames that suit your face shape.

Bottom Line

Everyone's head is shaped differently, and so there is no one style of eyeglass frames that looks best on all men with shaved heads. Choose eyeglass frames that balance your facial features, such as round frames for a square face or butterfly-shaped frames for a diamond face.
