Picking out the perfect pair of shades is hard, but once you've get 'em, you definitely want to show them off. We asked blogger Nicole Loher of The Style Student for some advice on the right hair looks to pair with summer's most popular sunglass styles. Read on to find out what she has to say on the subject. Got any tips of your own? Let us have 'em in the comments.

Big, retro glasses:
I took a cue from Nicole Richie's boho style when doing my hair to match my big frames. To achieve this look: smooth your bedhead with an anti-frizz serum and tie a thin scarf around your head with the base just above the highest point of your eyebrows.

I'm a firm believer that the Wayfarer is the hardest sunglass to pull off. No matter what though, you can never go wrong matching these sunglasses with polished locks. To achieve this look: pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Coil the end of your ponytail around the base and secure with bobbypins.

Cat-eye glasses
?Cat-eye frames are huge right now; they always look so chic. You can’t go wrong styling your hair with a middle part to emphasize the shape. To achieve this look: use a comb to define your middle part and secure loose pieces or bangs from the front of your face with bobbypins. You can braid the remainder of your hair like I did or leave it free.
