What does a receding hairline look like?

- 2These people (usually men) often wake up one day and while combing their hair they realize "my forehead is huge", and then realize their hairline is receding.No Widow's Peak -- For those who do not have a widow's peak the receding hairlines presents itself as a ever growing forehead which at first is less noticeable.
- 3This is because the sides tend to recede first leaving behind a widow's peak.Developing Widow's Peak -- Many men who did not have a widow's peak will develop one when their hair begins to recede.
