What is a widow’s peak? And why does it get that name?
Widow’s peak is the V-shaped arrangement in your hairline at the centre of the forehead. This is the typical shape when the sides of your hairline above your forehead are higher than the middle, which is at a lower level.
Some people have a clear widow’s obvious peak, while others have a V-shaped widow’s peak.
The peak of the Widow may be hidden, but it can easily be seen when the person pulls all their hair back and ties it. This name resulted from an old tradition that widows wore a headdress (or even a hood) pointed in the middle, resembling the letter V.
What causes Widow’s high peak hair?
It is still not known what causes widows to reach their peak. Although it has been suggested that the cause is due to genetics, there have not been any studies. It is more common to have it if there is a widow in your family.
One of the genetic disorders that can cause Widow’s peak is known to be:
- Donna-Barrow syndrome (unusual characteristics of the eyes and nose, ears and nose)
- Frontonasal dysplasia is an abnormal development of the head or face before birth.
- Aarskog syndrome ( short Stature with multiple abnormalities of the face and genitals

What is the worst thing about a widow?
A widow’s peak appearing in middle age may indicate baldness. This could indicate that the front hairline is receding at the temples.
