    Cool yet fell about a widow's peak

    Given this sentence:

    Her blonde hair, piled and pinned in back, yet fell about a widow's peak to blonde brows

    DO you have any remote idea what's saying the part in black?

    Thank You

    Re: yet fell about a widow's peak

    source: widow's peak - definition of widow's peak by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    widow's peak
    n.
    A V-shaped point formed by the hair near the top of the human forehead.

    It is a guess but maybe it means that her widow's peak covers her brows.

    It means that her hair fell forward, either side of her widow's peak, and reached her brows.

    Do you mean that despite her hair is backwards, there is still some hair around her widow's peak falling forward and reaching her brows?

    Thank You

    Yes, it says in the text that her hair is piled and pinned back, some of it is falling forward.
