Thought to be a name for blonde children, (coming from the word used to describe flax rope); it actually is only fitting to children with hair so light, it is literally "white".
This color generally goes away between 2-5 yrs old.
Ex. I had four children, all blue eyes, but only three of them were towheads.

The inevitable blonde douche bag that is often found on overseas academic trips. Has a tendency to bite his lower lip and a habit of infecting the social mannerisms of others with his own douche-baggery (douche-baggery being a term he believes he invented himself). Smokes like a chimney and habitually quotes adult cartoons in an attempt to be funny.
Person 1: "Did you see that guy over there? He knows the word for ashtray in seven different languages!"

Person 2: "Wow, what a towhead."

Having light blonde, almost white hair. No, it does not mean that your head looks like a toe.
Look at that towheaded boy, his hair's so white!
