- The Golden Ratio is the term used in certain scientific areas, architecture and arts for the geometric and numeric values reflecting the harmony between the parts of a whole showing a certain coherence.
- The Golden Ratio has first been used by the Egyptians and Greeks in architecture, sculptures and other fields of art. It is based on the principle that two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. The numeric value of the Golden ratio is 1,618.
- The most famous work on the Golden Ratio is the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci completed in 1492 showing the golden ratio in the human body.
The Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci: This drawing found beside his notes in Leonardo da Vinci’s diaries depicts a naked man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs closed and apart and inscribed in a circle and square. Leonardo da Vinci called the body in the drawings as “the Proportions of Man”. Because it is associated with various numeric values and geometric forms. And this drawing is described as a work aiming to discover human beings, nature and harmony between them. Leonardo da Vinci is the first who used the term Golden Ratio or Divine Ratio. Golden ratio on the human face: Every human being wants to feel self-confident and to be prominent. Everyone who values his or her appearance and believes that expression is an important factor in his/her career, may have come across the term Golden Ratio.
The human face
The human face has multiple features reflecting the golden ratio, although it is not possible to measure and describe this ratio with a simple ruler. The values measured by the scientists have been defined as ideal ratios. In order to calculate the Golden Ratio on the human face, certain rules are required. Not every ideal face may correspond to these values. Based on the research and the obtained values, these measurements only describe an ideal appearance and it would not be right to expect all humanity to match with these ratios.
The physician performing the hair transplantation should determine the frontal hair line with the Golden Ratio and explain this rule to the patient. With the Golden Ratio technique, you will have a more natural look after the hair transplant.
