The time required to achieve 360 waves depends on the hair's texture, manageability and growth. There is no need for a particular hair type to have 360 waves, but the time required for the waves to grow vary from person to person.
The hairstyle, worn mostly by African-American males, is called waves 360 or spinners because it appears as different-sized circles around the head. Larger or smaller gaps between the waves can be achieved, and is entirely based on the individual's preference. Frequent brushing and adequate moisturizing is needed to maintain the style, while 4 to 10 weeks of hair growth is required to deepen the waves.
