Widow's Peak : Phrases



Meaning:

A V shaped hairline.


Example:

When I was a young man my hairline formed a
widow's peak, now it is more like a divorcee's horseshoe.


Origin:

The hair of a person laying on their back in an open coffin would tend to fall back over the head, thereby exposing the hairline and making evident the peak.
