Glasses frames for small face (teens range?)

I have a small face, so need small glasses frames (if I wear normal sized ones, my eyes aren't in the middle and I look cross-eyed). For the last million years I have worn Specsavers teenagers range but a) I'm bored with all the (limited) options and b) I wouldn't mind spending a bit more, since I wear them the whole time and think some really good glasses would pay dividends.

Does anyone happen to know a stylish range of small-face or teenage glasses? I'd want to try them on before buying, but just the frame to try would be fine. And I could do a special trip to e.g. London if necessary.

Roxy frames are fairly neat and some John Rocha and Karen Millen

Main problem now is that Geek Chique is in they are all giant!

I have just got these things of beauty, ideal for a small face. Tried them on in Black and Lizars but bought them online saving about £150! Love them - so neat and comfy.

I've just got these which I absolutely love, and these which I'm less sure about. Bargain too!

Except you didn't want Specsavers!

I think it's just worth going round and trying loads of styles and makes. I'm currently wearing a square-ish pair of Prada glasses (bought in the sale!) and they're fab on my small face. They're something like this but in a brown colour.

All of my glasses used to be the specsavers teen range. Now they're all missoni, also from specsavers.

Thanks - some useful leads there. I'm not averse to Specsavers, they are often excellently stylish for the amount of money! I'd just like to widen my search a little.

My experience of going round trying loads of styles though is always discouraging - trying loads on, all of which are too big, and I lose the will to shop.

I have a small face and I've had two pairs from Face a Face which I've been very happy with. My optician doesn't always stock them but he can get them in if I see some on the website that I like.

They're not cheap but as you say, when you wear them every waking moment.....

I have the same problem and have bought my last few pairs at Boots because they seem to have a wider range of frames for small heads.

Dior glasses have a small fit. I struggle to find glasses that fit and I did the rounds of the opticians a few months ago and Dior was the best fit I found.

I have a small face and have this problem. My current glasses are Face a Face and Tom Ford which are a great fit
