Head

Phospholipids are the most abundant membrane lipids and contain a polar head group containing the phosphate group. It is hydrophilic and faces out on each surface to interact with water.

Tail

The phospholipid tail comprises two fatty acids, which are hydrophobic and do not dissolve in water. The hydrophobic tails are sandwiched between two layers of hydrophilic heads in a bilayer.
