He’s not called “The Rock” for nothing.

Well, today we’re really exploring the power of the nose as an expression of identity and emotionality. Check out this nose! It’s broad, fleshy and even has a little redness around the nostrils – more on that later.  Continue reading

Friday Faces: Hook Nose

She looks for precision and balance.

Today we start exploring the powerful Nose!

As the feature that protrudes furthest out, the nose is the leader of our faces. It is the projection of our personality and “nose” where we’re heading. The size, shape and qualities of our nose say a great deal about our relationship with ourselves, with power, authority, action and will.

The nose you see here is an aquiline nose (from Latin, meaning “eagle-like”). It’s also known as a bent, Roman or hook nose. The presence of the bump, or bend, in the ridge, is the defining characteristic.

A person with this kind of nose values precision, balance and order. She would choose her words carefully, have a sharp set of kitchen knives, and select the right tool for the job. She would tend to look at both sides of an argument and find an effective compromise. Her home would be tidy. She would do well in tasks requiring precise measurement, calculation or adjustment. She’d make a good manager, organiser, scientist, accountant or technician.

Generally speaking, the more prominent the bend, the more strongly the person will display these personality traits. However, they may be balanced out by other facial features.

Do you know anyone with this feature in their nose? Ask them if this is true!

See you next week for another Friday Faces.

Be-You-tiful in Nature.


“I took this photo on a recent trip to Sweden, where I’m from.
I was out picking blueberries with my mum and I was just so happy.
The forest was so lush and the surroundings and smells so familiar.
Made me feel at home.”

Whatever makes you feel beautiful, makes you look beautiful.

Friday Faces: Bushy Eyebrows


Enthusiastic and passionate – yet he may tend to overdo things.

Being the great communicators of the face, the eyebrows express the degree of understanding between the head and the heart.

Eyebrows that are thick and bushy show a great deal of enthusiasm and vitality to pursue the things he’s passionate about. Depending on the degree of thickness, the person’s enthusiasm may tend toward aggression at times.

When eyebrow hairs grow in different directions, as seen in this photo, it shows inner conflict between a restless energy that likes to take on challenges, and a loss of vitality due to stress or overwhelm. This can cause difficulty in decision making, and may result in poor choices or irritability. This person would be well advised to listen to his heart and body, allowing his natural vitality to replenish on a regular basis.

Next Friday, I’ll share insights into the power of the nose!
