Examples of describing a person in English

There are two ways to describe a person: a physical description and a psychological one , but the most accurate will always be the description of their physical features. The other form of description could be very subjective, and refers to someone’s qualities , flaws, and abilities.

In the case of physical descriptions, what is sought is to detail a person standing out, from hair color to skin color.
