Now some faces with very good symmetry:

“Studies have shown that facial symmetry is one of the best observational indicators of good genes and healthy development and that these traits are what we mean when we say someone is attractive.” Says a website.

So is symmetry everything?

Well, I don’t think so. It may make a given face more attractive on a computer but its not the only thing that makes someone beautiful. Scientists have been able to prove that it is the most factor is beauty and that’s because its the only thing that can be measured by the computer unlike clear complexion, beautiful eyes, smile etc

You take an average face with a huge nose, small eyes and small lips and make it symmetrical. The face will be easy on the eyes but it wouldn’t be considered beautiful or gorgeous. On the other hand take deep set bright blue eyes, full lips, clear bronze complexion, you add a crooked nose but the face would still be considered more attractive than average.

Symmetry plays a role in models where the facial features are already attractive. Symmetry just gives an edge over other faces. But in the real world it doesn’t play much of a role. When you look at someone you look at their pretty eyes, lips, smile, complexion, hair and other things. Very few people are so asymmetric that they are unappealing to the eyes. Minor asymmetry is present in every face and our eyes have learnt to overlook them.

Here’s a woman with perfect symmetry but do you find her attractive (according to scientists you should):

What do you feel? Is symmetry as important as it is made out to be by scientist?

    Actually new and more serious studies indicates that symmetri is not related to beauty, so let´s enjoy our wacky faces without complexs and not to worry about photos that exagerate defects.

    This is a great little post. I totally agree. I have a slightly assymetrical face but I don’t always look the same in photos and I am not boring. I feel it makes me interesting. Elvis is another very assymetrical face who women just loved and fawned over.

    “Here’s a woman with perfect symmetry but do you find her attractive (according to scientists you should)”

    no, wrong. what a stupid statement.

    she(? i’m not even sure, could also be a boy) has a symmetrical face but it’s also about the golden ratio and i can’t really see it.
    besides that, dear author of this thread, don’t act stupid: raccoon attack + no eyelashes + narrow lips + creepy blank stare + slighty too much bodyfat = unattractive face

    …and my answer is YES, symmetry is important but it doesn’t matter how symmetrical your face is if it’s components are just plain ugly.
    on the other hand: as you said, you don’t need a 100 percent symmetrical face if you have some pretty features.

    it’s more than just math, it’s also about people’s individual taste but that doesn’t mean scientists are wrong.

      In fact, you can clearly see a slightly widened gaze from the left eye, with higher eyebrow, and a droopier right earlobe.

    don’t think dis post is stupid! I personally don’t think symmetry is all that it takes to make a face beautiful.. some people are just brain fed into buying into the symmetry crap. I’m a doctor and I know how researches work. many of them exaggerate facts or trick people into believing their theories. but we are usually attracted to facial features rather than pure symmetry. its rare to see a face that is so asymmetric that it looks ugly. everyone has a little asymmetry to their face.

    I feel the opposite. It makes people LESS attractive. The differences in the face shows emotions and a human brain. Symmetri looks plastic and fake, not alive. Really bad made “science” in my opinion. Of course it is not attractive to be abnormally assymetric, like people who have been in an accident or is born with the mouth on one side of the face etc. But The women with assymetric faces here are so much more beautiful then the symmetric ones :)

    First off… some of the celebrities listed under the symmetrical faces aren’t actually symmetrical as well. If you observe closely, J.Lo’s ears aren’t on the same level due to the right side of her face being lower than the other side.. observe how the right side of the face has been framed with longer hair as compared to the left side?

    That said, if you actually manage to find someone with perfect symmetry (looking at any computer generated face with perfect symmetry works too), you will find that even as it is pleasing to the eyes, the features are quite boring when they are all the same and aligned with each other. Asymmetrical traits like having a lop-sided smile ect, makes a person looks more charming and expressive. I believe having a little of both is what makes a truly beautiful face.

    Dont Robert Pattinson and Ryan Gosling have pretty asymmetrical faces? Arent they considered the most attractive men right now?

    I’ve always found women with perfect symmetry to look rather dull… Too much asymmetry is no good but a little bit of imperfection adds character.

    Ryan Gosling has a very wonky face and woman gush over him. They probably don’t even notice it.
