Yesterday I took Olivia to have her full brows threaded for the first time ever -- a beauty milestone! -- which I'll tell you about in another post. Once Hibba, the salon owner was done with Olivia, I slid into her chair to have mine threaded as well.
"Do you want me to get this, too?" asked Hibba, signaling my widow's peak hairline.
"Uh huh," I nodded. "You can take it up a bit."
Today shape-ups are mostly relegated to barbershops and thought of as a male grooming issue. There are entire websites dedicated to monitoring the rising hairline on Lebron James and ridiculing Wayne Brady for the way his hair frames his face. Hairlines are a thing for dudes and they're also important to me.
Visible widow's peak.
When Olivia saw what Hibba had done, she was totally intrigued. I almost always eliminate my natural widow's peak by either waxing or threading the small point at the front on my hairline. While plenty of women keep theirs intact and even consider the unusual hairline attractive, I prefer the look of a round, even hairline and a higher forehead.
I'm curious, do you think about your hairline?
