Why do phospholipids form a bilayer in water?

Question: Why do phospholipids form a bilayer in water? 

Phospholipids spontaneously form bilayer when mixed with water because they have an end that is polar and another that is polar. When the  phospholipids are placed in water, they form into micelles, which are lipid molecules that arrange themselves in a spherical form in  aqueous solutions. And the phospholipids lipid bilayer acts as barrier to the passage of molecules and ions into and out of the cell. And the phospholipids are essential to health. They play a number of roles in the body, acting as a major component of cellular membranes and facilitating the absorption and transportation of omega-3 and fat.
