It wasn’t so long ago, that I read an article about the definition of a beautiful neck. It came as a surprise to me that what seems to be considered as the “perfect neck”, according to beauty experts and researchers, corresponds to 5 fingers of your own hand. This perception of elegance comes to our modern times to debunk the model of the “swan neck” that women are craving for. And apparently, the fact that the size of one’s palm has to fit perfectly to the lenght of one’s neck, is not a new concept. After a little research, it wasn’t hard to discover that it has its roots to the medieval times. Experts took this saying as a fact, and measured the proportions of the neck and face of over 1,000 people. And, funnily enough, it was verified. So now, all there is left is for you to put your five fingers on your neck. Are you beautiful, or what ?
