A glasses wearer has revealed a brilliantly simple hack for keeping your spectacles in place, and stop them from sliding down your nose.
Taking to her YouTube channel, ArayaLia, 23, from California, shared that she felt inspired to share her hack for keeping her glasses in position on her face, as she’d recently got new prescriptive reading glasses that didn’t fit properly.
‘I did not want to get them altered in anyway, I just really wanted to come home and finish my homework,’ she explained at the start of her video.
Hack: Blogger ArayaLia, 23, from California, has revealed on her YouTube channel her clever hack to stop glasses from sliding down your nose
Annoying: She explained that because her ears are lower on her head, her glasses never fit and she used to tuck the arms into her hair to keep her glasses in place
‘Let me just show you the proportion of my face – my ears, they hang a little bit lower than where the ideal should be so when I do wear my glasses, they hang this low,’ she added while demonstrating how he glasses wouldn’t stay in place.
Explaining that she has to wear them higher on her head with the lense arms tucked into her hair so she can see out through her lenses, ArayaLia added they ‘annoying’ feeling of her glasses constantly slipping off her face inspired her to come up with an alternative solution.
‘It’s just really uncomfortable as I’m always readjusting whenever I’m reading, so this is a quick little tip on how to stop your glasses from slipping off of your nose and just positioning it where you want it to be,’ she told the camera.
Simple: Using two hair elastics, ArayaLia explained how she was going to make a cushion of sorts around the arms of her glasses
That’s a wrap: She then wrapped each elastic tightly around each long arm on the sides of the frame to create more padding and volume so her glasses would fit better on her head
Success: With the elastics wrapped in place, ArayaLia she found her glasses stayed where they should be and stopped slipping down her nose
ArayaLia then shared that all you need to correct the problem is two hair elastics, wrapped tightly around each long arm on the sides of the frame that extend over the ears to keep the glasses on the wearer’s face.
She then placed her glasses back on her face and demonstrated that with the hair elastics in place, she was able to shake her head around.
‘You’re not going to feel super-duper annoyed by pushing up your glasses every freaking second, so this tip has definitely helped me with my glasses problem and my weird, odd, shaped head,’ she concluded.
