360 Waves (often shortened to waves or "360 waves") is a hairstyle, generally worn by men. The hair is cropped short to the head in the styling of a Caesar cut. Afterwards, brushing techniques are applied to produce an effect reminiscent of "oceanic waves".
Frequent and repeated brushing (along with adequate moisturizing) is the only way to maintain the style, though the amount of brushing may vary from person to person depending on the type of hair. The "360 Waves" are the result of curls of hair that unfurl, allowing natural "rows" of roots to be exposed. As the hair lengthens in a process called wolfing, the wearer can achieve "deeper" waves by allowing the hair to grow out, usually for 4 to 10 weeks.
Through a popular process called "wolfing" (refraining from getting a haircut as long as possible while constantly brushing one's hair), the wave pattern in the hair will become deeper and more defined. Then, after a haircut, the "waves" may come out deeper depending on the time spent "wolfing" and the type of haircut chosen.
