  1. forms of the facial profile
    • profiles denote the relationship of the forehead, upper lip and chin:
    • (the nose is not included in the description)
  2. forehead
    is described by its direction from the eyebrow upward
  3. chin
    described by its relationship to the upper lip
  4. three basic forms;
    • verticle
    • convex (most common)
    • concave ("dish face" and least common)
  5. vertical profile
    • can also be described as a Balanced or Straight Profile
    • forehead, upper lip and chin each project to an imaginary verticle line
  6. convex profile (most common)
    forehead and chin both protrude
  7. concave profile ("dish face" and least common)
    forehead and chin both protrude
  8. six other profiles (referred to as Variations of the Three Basic Forms)
    • Convex-Concave Profile
    • Concave-Convex Profile
    • Vertical- Convex Profile
    • Vertical-Concave Profile
    • Convex-Verticle Profile
    • Concave-Verticle Profile
  9. Variations of the Three Basic forms
    • can be produced by combination of the three basic forms
    • (the two-term profile descriptions, the first term always refers to the forehead and the second term always refers to the chin)
  10. convex-concave profile
    forehead recedes and the chin protrudes
  11. concave-convex profile
    forehead protrudes and the chin recedes
  12. verticle-convex profile
    forehead is verticle and the chin recedes
  13. verticle-concave profile
    forehead is verticle and the chin protrudes
  14. convex-verticle profile
    forehead recedes and the chin is verticle
  15. concave-verticle profile
    forehead protrudes and the chin is verticle
  16. convex
    refers to a receding feature
  17. concave
    refers to a protruding feature
  18. forms of the front view of the head
    there are seven types of head shapes ea. suggesting a definte geometric shape
  19. the three factors which influence the type of head shape are:
    • length
    • width
    • degree of curvature
  20. the seven types of head shape from the front view are:
    • oval "egg shapped" form (most common)
    • round "infantile" form
    • square "strong" form
    • oblong form
    • triangular form
    • inverted triangular form (least common)
    • diamond form
  21. oval "egg shapped" form (most common)
    • this shape is visible from a front, profile and bilateral view
    • the cranium is slightly wider then the jaw
  22. round "infantile" form
    • jawline, cranium and sometimes the hairline repeat a curvature
    • sometimes described as spherical in shape
  23. square "strong" form
    • length and width appear to be similar
    • face broad with very little curvature to the sides
  24. oblong form
    • head is described asw long and noticeably narrow
    • almost always accompanied by hollow (sunken) cheeks
  25. triangular form (least common)
    • wider between the angles of the jaw than across the forehead
    • sides relatively straight as they taper toward the top of the head
  26. inverted triangle form
    • wider across the forehead than between the angles of the jaw
    • sides relatively straight as they taper toward the chin
  27. diamond form
    • widest across the cheekbones
    • forehead and jawline taper medially
