If you don’t like your widows peak, I suppose you can shave it (as you are doing now). In the long term, you will have to continue to shave it since shaving is not permanent. I have seen some patients laser off the widows peak. I have also seen someone who lasered off the widows peak and regretting their decision later on in life. That person came to see me for a hair transplant to get their widows peak back. My wife had a widow’s peak and she hated it and she was thinning in the corners. We transplanted her corners and lowered the hairline enough to incorporate the widow’s peak. She is now very happy with a lower, more rounded hairline as she had when she was younger. No more widow’s peak.
The widow’s peak is never present in very young children. As aging starts, at any age above 5 or 6, if the hairline rises, it may leave behind a midline, pointed tuft of hair which is what we call the widow’s peak. The point on the widow’s peak is always located at the highest wrinkle of the furrowed brow. So the presence of a widow’s peak (a poor term) reflect the point where the hairline was, and the area around it reflects a faded youthful hairline. 83% of women over the age of 40, have a widow’s peak which means that their overall hairline has moved upward, enlarging their forehead, something that most women dislike. When I tried to find famous women who kept their juvnile hairline, it was not east considering that 83% have hairline loss; however, Catherine Zeta Jones was more the exception, see here: I believe that this hairline is exactly where it was when she was 8 years old.
Another beautiful actress who shows her widow’s peak along with the evident recession of the hairline on the sides of the widow’s peak, leaving the widow’s peak as the last remnant of where the midline hairline was. The hair is combed over the right side only showing the left.
