What does a receding hairline look like?
There are two main types of receding hairlines based on if you have a "widow's peak" or not.
- 1Widow's Peak -- Men who have a "widow's peak" often tend to lose hair along the sides but not on the widows peak (at least at first) causing the widow's peak to be accentuated. In some cases the widows peak will form an "island" of hair as in some of the following pictures illustrating widow's peaks in men with receding hairlines:
- 2No 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. These 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.
- 3Developing Widow's Peak -- Many men who did not have a widow's peak will develop one when their hair begins to recede. This is because the sides tend to recede first leaving behind a widow's peak.
