Through The Eyes Of The Hollywood Elite

Hollywood Elite and Their Eyewear

When Hollywood comes to mind the images of palm trees, glitzy parties, movie stars and fabulous eyeglasses take center stage. Playing a role in shielding everything from paparazzi flashes to southern California sunrays, eyeglasses play a popular role in every stars life. By taking cues from the Hollywood elite, we too can be outfitted in the most stylish and fitting frames that highlight everything from perfect brows to bronzed cheek bones. 

At Glance Glasses of Salem and Lake Oswego, we carry an ever-changing line of the top brands and styles available today. Below, we share the top tips in finding the right style for you that can help to channel your inner movie star. When celebrities choose their glasses, it’s never a happy accident that the styles seem to fit them perfectly. We work one on one with you to ensure the perfect fit, frame and style every time. 

Face Shape
Face shape is number one in choosing the right size, and the right shape, frame for your face. Before we dive into style and color, you first need to narrow down the shape or shapes that will best compliment your natural facial structure. This will give your face balance and add to the overall look. While a round face, as seen on star Jennifer Lawrence, works best with rectangular frames, oval faces, such as Jessica Alba or Megan Fox, are best accented by butterfly shapes. Heart faces, such as Selena Gomez, do best in soft oval styles that balance strong jawlines. As one of our many personal services, we can assist shoppers in finding the right frame for their shape.

AM Northwest Interviews Glance about Polarization

Polarization is a series of vertical lines that cuts through the horizontal glare. It is great for fishers, skiers and anyone that wants to see better while driving. Polarized lens will help to cut through the glare of a water surface, snowpack, and car windows. If you are light sensitive, you will want to stick with a gray-based polarization lens versus a yellow based polarized lens. Watch this short video or visit one of our stores to learn more.
