    Is There a Link Between Your Hairline and Your Personality?


    Short hair, long hair, and everything in between - this is an important question for people who have to deal with their hair every day. What you choose is an important part of your image and the way people perceive you. But what if there was more to it than just looks?


    What do you need to know when it comes to styling different types of hair?


    Do Hairlines Show Your Personality?

    You might not have thought about it before, but your hairline does a lot more than just make you look good. It might say a lot about who you are and how other people perceive you.

    The first thing to consider is whether hairlines could be closely tied to status and power. A person who identifies as a man with a receding hairline isn't likely to be perceived as having high status or power - research shows he's seen as being less attractive and less masculine by both men and women alike. On the other hand, men with full heads of hair tend to be seen as higher up on the social hierarchy than those with balding hairlines or receding hairlines because they look younger (which signals health) and more dominant (which signals confidence).

    Who would you feel most comfortable leaving your bag with while you stepped away for a few minutes? A bald man or a bald woman? A woman with long hair or short shaved hair? A man with long hair or no hair? Here are several possibilities for your consideration: people do make unconscious decisions about what they will find most pleasing.



    How Do You Know If Your Hairline Is Receding?

    The best way is looking in the mirror. If you can see a distinct line where your forehead ends and your hair starts, then that's a pretty good indicator that it's receding. If you don't have clear lines like this, then get out of the shower and dry off. Look at your reflection in the mirror again - this time with some serious distance between yourself and it.

    Women and Their Hairlines

    Since I have been a hair replacement user owing to my thinning hair, it's true to say I am a little obsessed with being drawn to men's hairlines. Whether it be on the train, in the supermarket, on TV, in films or in all other interactions and observational moments, I am unsure of the purpose and what I hope to gain from this. Is it possible that I’m making judgments about them based on their hairline? I hope not, but it's a possibility. There are so many factors that come into play with a person’s appearance and the way they carry themselves. And while I don't think their hairline should have anything to do with this, it can be hard to ignore when you're trying to get through your day without making judgments about people.

    I've read that people who identify as women are more likely to notice a woman's hairline and think about how it looks. Women may also think about how they would feel if they had that same kind of hairline, but this doesn't happen as often as noticing and thinking about the appearance of other women's hairlines.

    The Myth of the Hairline

    There are many reasons (and myths) why a woman might develop a widow's peak. If your mother or grandmother had one, there's a good chance you will too. But it can also be due to ageing, or stress and anxiety over time. In books and films, a widow's peak is often used to create a spooky effect by highlighting the character who has one.

    Drag queens are never seen without their perfectly sculpted hairdos and bald men, who are often portrayed as dangerous and masculine in the movies also face a number of stereotypes.

    Although hair may not be a statement about our tastes or personalities, it can still express who we are.
