Different kinds of nose

The nose is an essential feature of the face, yet the nose itself is less often remarked upon for its beauty than, say, the eyes or the lips. It complements the other features. What people generally want from a nose job is a nose that is not too big, not too small, and seems right for the face.

And not everyone wants the same shape of nose. A Google search will tell you there are six, twelve, thirteen or fourteen different types of noses. The broadest categories of human nose shape are “flat,” “concave,” “convex” and “straight.” Scientists studying human ancestry have learned that people whose ancestors come from cold, dry climates usually have noses with longer, higher and narrower nasal cavities than those whose ancestors come from hot, humid climates. This is most likely to warm and moisten the air before it enters the sensitive lungs.
