Alright so maybe you don’t want to look like a Rapper, but maybe you have wanted to look like a Surfer, a cast member from Jersey Shore, or a night club DJ.

Do you want to look like a Naturalist or Tree Hugger perhaps? I’ve got two really cool brands for you: Wood U? and Earth Wood.

Here are some pointers to finding the perfect frames to accent your lovely locks!

Bodacious Blondes:  From pixie cut to Tangled hair, boys or girls, blondes look hot with contrasting light locks with black metal frames. For a very posh look, Tortoise shell and white frames will compliment your Blonde locks and for Blondes with darker skin tones, contrasting bright colors and prints will really make a statement.

Some things to keep in mind:

• Big white plastic frames look great whatever shade of blonde you are.

Frames to try: Ray-Ban Cats 5000, Oakley Frogskins, DKNY DY4078B, and the Ralph Ra5126
