The Jane Austen Centre in Bath has revealed what they believe Jane really looked like after extensive research. 
Could this be the face of Jane Austen? 

I have made myself two or three caps to wear of evenings since I came home, and they save me a world of torment as to hair-dressing, which at present gives me no trouble beyond washing and brushing, for my long hair is always plaited up out of sight, and my short hair curls well enough to want no papering.
JANE AUSTEN, letter, Dec. 2, 1798
