FIFe 25
Head & Neck
In profile forehead and nose form a convex angle at the same level as the eye brows. Straight forehead. Straight nose.
Head & Ears
In profile the forehead should appear straight to the level of the upper edge of the eye. The profile from here to the tip of the nose has such a shallow concave curve that it appears virtually straight. This creates a distinctive angle level with the upper edge of the eye. There must be no stop, break or nose bump, nor must there be a straight profile from the top of the head to nose tip.
[One of the seven flat planes required in the modified wedge.]  Profile:  Straight nose and flat top head forming two planes.
