When the long chain of fatty acids like soap and detergent is added to water the hydrophobic part of their chain is aligned towards the centre in such a manner that they form a spherical shape and their hydrophilic part is facing towards outside. This spherical like structure is known as a micelle.                               

 Structure of sodium soap(Left side - hydrophobic part, Right side- hydrophilic part)

                                                                fig:- Micelle of that sodium soap.
