I think it varies. There's a lot of stereotype put into it.

I think that most people will be familiar with the look of the wide forehead, light eyes, noses which are more low rooted than Western Europeans, I suppose. Hmmm. Round faces and wide (but not necessarily prominent or high) cheekbones. Chins are less prominent and point than amongst Western Euros. (that's what my Polish friend said as well).

I think the examples from TROE are good:

The incipiently mongoloid features found in some Lapps are usually more pronounced in the women than in the men. This Norwegian Lapp woman, who possesses these features, is seen to resemble facially the type commonly known as "Slavic" or "East Baltic," in central and eastern Europe.

Or his East Baltic plates:

I think the overwhelming majority of Slavs do not look like that plate. Even when just accounting for Poles, Czecks, Slovaks, etc.

A bit alpinoid. Can be depigmented but usually wider facial features and head shape.

If you were Polako, this is "nordic." In general, however, Slavs are more big boned than Westerners.

Lately, I have been told I give off a Slavic vibe.

Baltic and Slavic don't look the same.

Yeah Toma you look Slavic!

They don't look the same but in my opinion they look fairly similar.

Similar because they were both under the Soviet Union and share the same spirit.

Been in contact with Lithuanians and Latvians (some can pass as Polish and some are ethnic Russians) and they don't all look Slavic.

Agree with Caudium. There is definitely overlap with western looks, but you notice the extreme versions. I notice that the head is wide from the front, but in profile the head seems compressed from front to back. Maybe the head is flatter in the back.

You mean brachecephaly? Yes. Polako's made many links about the debrachecephalization of Poland due to nutrition, but I still believe that Slavs tend to be more short-headed than Westerners; it will take lots of catching-up to do. Czechs, I have noticed, can be quite long-headed though; just from PE.


I don't think that Slavs are bigger-boned than Westerners though. Especially, in comparison to all the Brunns, Borrebies, and other UP survivors in the West.

Slavs just have that "Slavic look". I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about.

RYOUTA forgot the group I most associate Slavs with, the slightly Mongoloidish looking ones.

Not that they're in the majority or anything.

Only self-hating Slavs hate the Slavic look.

Not every Slav is a Polako who is trying to convince nordicists that he's "white." Many Slavs are aware of the East-West divide and not ashamed of it.

Slightly Mongoloidish ones are rare.

Seen a few in Hungary, but are Hungarians Slavic?
