– Small Nose: A small nose will have a small width and length with a tip that may not be completely round or flat. People with small noses are group players and love to utilize their creative side to complete different tasks. You will also find them a bit frustrated and impatient, which may affect their temperament a bit. Still, they love to help others and are good at dealing with problems.
– Long Nose: A long nose suggests that you have great instincts, possess a great sense of business, and have a good sense of ambition as well. You usually find the strength to handle your biggest problems.
– Short Nose: A person with a short nose is usually quite loyal but he/she may be a bit short on ambition and drive. They are not the leaders and are usually overwhelmed by those who manifest strong leadership qualities. They are kind, emotional, sweet, and highly sensitive.
1. Concave Nose Shapes
Also called the upturned nose, a concave nose will be slightly depressed on the middle part with a rather protruding tip.
