Background to the Study: This study was carried out with the aim of determining gender differences in the distribution of widow's peak among the young adults of the Isoko ethnic group of the southern part of Nigeria. Materials and Methods: Six hundred and sixty (660) adults of both sexes (330 males and 330 females) between the ages of 18 years and 35 years were used for the study. Simple random sampling technique was used for the study. Determination of widow's peak was based on an observational study. Data obtained were subjected to statistical analysis using Chi-square test, with the aid of the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, version 20. P ≤ 0.05 was considered significant. Result: The result of the study revealed that a lower percentage of males (15.45%) did present with widow's peak, while it was 16.36% for females. There was no significant gender difference concerning widow's peak distribution among the Isoko males and females (P > 0.05). Conclusion: This study provides normative data for widow's peak distribution among the Isoko ethnic group. This study provides guidelines for designing the hairline in the study population.
