What is a Cowlick

 

Question: What is a cowlick?
Answer:
A cowlick is a section of hair, usually appearing on the crown of the head, which grows in a different direction from the rest of your hair, commonly in a spiral pattern. Cowlicks tend to stand straight up or lie at an angle opposite from the style the hair is worn.

Cowlicks are very common and most people have at least one. While some are barely noticeable, others are a defining feature.
