There are 6 main nose types that have been identified in humans, and many more variations within these initial categories. Rhinoplasty, or surgical nose augmentation, was one of the earliest performed surgeries, dating back as far as 800 BCE. In recent years, the improvement of non-surgical cosmetic technologies has meant that there are now more options available to those seeking to change the appearance of the nose than just surgery.
Nose Types : Celestial, Roman, and Greek
This is also called a turned up nose, and is fairly small with a slightly protruding tip.
The Roman, or aquiline, nose has a mostly straight bridge that curves downwards at the end, often with a wide, rounded tip.
The Greek nose is widely known for being straight from the bridge to the tip, and is often regarded as having a classical profile, commonly seen on ancient statues.
Nose Types : Snub, Hawk, and Nubian
Similarly to the celestial nose, the snub nose is small and has an upturned profile, though front on view may show more nostril.
A hawk nose is similar to a Roman nose, though may have a thinner bridge and more pointed tip.
This nose type usually has a wider base and flatter bridge, and is often seen in people of African descent.
