Synonyms of "Resemblance" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Their resemblance was breathtaking and They resemble each other to a hair ?
A: I've never heard the second one before so I may be wrong. Here's my take on it.

The first one is almost like saying "It's an amazing thing that they are so similar.". Note this doesn't necessarily mean there isn't any differences, just that it's amazing how similar they are.

The second one however, feels more like a fact. It makes me think they must be identical in every way.

If you wanted to describe their similarity without any emotion, the second is probably more correct. But if you were wanting to be more emotive, the first one is better.
