The 5.5 cm rule reveals which hair length really suits you best
Have you always wanted to try a short haircut but are afraid that short hair might not suit you? Or vice versa, you find a short bob or a pixie underlines your type, but you ask yourself: Would long hair suit me better?
As already mentioned, you should never let a mathematical formula interfere with your personal taste. Do you feel very comfortable with your current hair length and don't want to change anything? Then neither should you. But if you've always been wondering which hair length suits you best, then we've got the answer.
If you're one of those people who is already planning your next makeover, but you want to know what hair length might even suit you before the hairdresser scissors, then we have the solution to this dilemma. The best haircut for you can be calculated very easily. Yes, you heard me right. Mathematics is announced.
Those who are familiar with angles and numbers can now breathe a sigh of relief. No problem if it's been a while since your last math lesson. That's what we're here for. The optimal hair length should depend on the angle of the jawbone. We will now tell you how exactly you can apply the 5.5 cm rule with this knowledge.
The formula comes from the hair experts at the hair care line John Frieda and is intended to calculate whether short or long hair suits you better. And you don't have to go to the hair salon for that, you can easily find out at home. All you need is a ruler, a pen and a mirror.
Instructions for the 2-inch rule for hair:
But why is the whole thing now called the 5.5 cm rule? Very simple: If the distance that you measured in the last step is less than 5.5 cm, a short haircut suits you. If it is more than 5.5 cm, longer hair flatters you best.
Of course, a mathematical formula is not decisive for which hairstyle you should choose, but it might help you decide. In addition, the shape of the face or the texture of the hair also plays an important role in which haircut may be the best for you. Therefore, we advise you to get advice from your:your hairdresser:in, no matter what the ruler showed.
