How does the 5.5 centimeter rule work?
To find out which length of hair is the most flattering for your face, take a ruler and a pencil and stand in front of a mirror. Take the pencil and place it horizontally under the chin. Then place the ruler vertically under the earlobe. The math then comes into play: you just need to measure the distance between the earlobe and the pencil: if it is less than 5.5 centimeters, short haircuts are for you.
