• To promote the density of hair

  • To accentuate the hairline

  • To fill up areas where the hair is receding from the temples

  • To possibly accentuate the ‘widow’s peak’ or the V-shaped hairline on the forehead

In order to accentuate beauty, a so-called ‘widows peak’ can be applied, to create a charming V-shaped hairline. This can camouflage any scars and bring the hairline slightly forward. Especially in people with a large forehead and a somewhat triangular face, this gives good results.

    10.1    Widow's Peak Type 1

      A common widow's peak in men and women  a triangular shape group of hair at the middle of forehead.The tip is round or pointed.   Hair direction is downward and rightward.

    Common Widow's peak or Widow’s peak type 1  is not from the opposite hair but parallel  hair.   Hair grow on the vertical  skin crease  line .

10. 2.  Widow's peak type 2,

This uncommon widow's peak  is a  group of triangular shape hair.

   Hair direction  is   upward.Tip is very point.  Hair grow on the vertical skin crease   line.

    This Widow's peak is  a component of opposite hair.       Opposite hair can effect only left side of widow's peak. Hair in this border  zone  will grow upward  and rightward(oblique  up).

    If the opposite hair  flow along left Meridian. Diamond intersection will be in front of the part peak.Vellus hair will flow oblique on the hairline(perpendicular to the meridian).

Hairline hair grow on horizontal skin crease line.Opposite hair will become oblique cow's lick.



10. 3.    Widow's peak type 3: 

              A complete triangular shape hairline with round tip in both man and woman . Hair grow on the  vertical skin crease  line.

Widow's peak type 3 still can further subdivide to:

           3.1 Commonly hair direction  is downward and rightward.Tip is round.

           3.2 Uncommonly if  compose of opposite  hair.Hair direction is upward .Tip is very point.

           3.3 Very uncommon if opposite hair  effct only the left portion of the peak.The tip can be very point

10.4  Round shape  widow's peak:

          Half   a whorl on hairline.

                If the partline and part peak is  on the round frontal scalp can produce  half of a whorl   on hairline.

          A whorl on hairline:

      If  a diamond shapeof opposite hair  intersection on a hairline on the round surface.       Will    look like a circle.A circle of hair with centre from the tip of part peak .Look like a whorl from the front.

            Double whorl on the hairline.

                  If happen in individual with double partline then will be 2 circle  of hair on the hairline.

10.6    Half a Widow’s peak: 

A widow’s peak  is modify by  androgenisation     but the  effect can be very asymmetry or happen unilaterally    produce half  a Widow’s peak.

       Significant of widow's peak:

       1. In construction of female hairline for transgender. Generally these lady do not like to have widow's peak.They think Widow’s peak is male,more strong and aggressive look.She want somethings which is more soft  smooth  and sweet look.

       2. In lady who already have widow's peak. Do not try to completely eliminate it.

     make it  smaller.

          For type 1 widow's peak  .It is possible to change the shape of hairline

      from widow's peak to round  because  hair direction is the same in both

      in the termainal  hair zone and  in the peak zone .

     Type  2  have to  match the  hair direction.

      3. In construction of hairline for baldness. Widow 's peak  can give an illusion of lower hair line.??/But make sure is natural  look.

       4. Widow's peak is good for camouflage scar from previous surgery  on forehead eg. coronal lift,scalp advancement etc.

        Widow's peak Type 2  is my first choice to camouflage scar from  Juri's Flap because  of same hair direction. Widow's peak will make this flap look much more natural.


10. 5  Combination widow's peak:

   If round shape widow's peak combine with opposite midline hair. The widow's peak will look like a goft ball on the pin.


            What cause and modify   a Widow's peak:

            1.Genetic ,Phenotypic  frontal hair pattern .

            2.Aging and degenerating factors

            3. Androgenisation in male or mild androgenisation in female
