A popular trend on TikTok sees people using an “attractive face scale” along with the viral shapeshifting filter to find out if they’re “hot or not” — here’s everything you need to know.
Many of TikTok’s most popular trends are based on the physical appearance of participants, and often involve using one of the app’s many filters to alter your appearance.
The “shapeshifting” filter is one such effect that people have been using for the past year to find out who they look most like. Most of these trends involve using a sheet full of faces of people from a specific TV show or specific types of dolls, and then letting the filter decide who you most resemble.
One version of this trend was the “Hot or Not” challenge, which was particularly popular in 2021.

Using data from the Hot or Not website, where people rank others based on an attractiveness scale, Flickr user Pierre Tourigny created multi-morph composites of images from the site to find the average face of each review.
He’s put these together into one image, and that’s the image people use to decide if they’re “hot or not,” with the face the filter blends them with supposedly being the one they’re on are most similar.
How to make the “Hot or Not” TikTok trend
To do this trend, or any variation of it, you must first save an image of multiple faces to your device’s camera roll.
Once you have that, do the following:
- Open minded tick tock
- Go to ‘Discovery’ Tab.
- Type in the search bar ‘Shapeshift.’
- From the search results, press the pink record button next to the filter, then ‘Try this effect.’
- Select the image you have saved on your film reel.
- Press the record buttonand the filter should blend your face with one of the faces in the picture.
While many claim the app will transform you into how you look the most, it’s not particularly accurate, so keep that in mind if you’re participating in any of these trends.
