The halo was developed by Icey Ice in 1983 . The name is derived from how the part of the head rolled around resembles a halo , and was in use by 1985 . Other names for the halo were "track" and "airtrack." A rotation around the head clockwise stabbing with the right hand (or counterclockwise stabbing with the left) is the standard halo, while the opposite direction can be considered a variation.
Halo with two rotations between the hands touching the ground. The triple halo, quadruple halo, etc. are similarly defined. Lil Cesar and Orko did quadruple and quintuple halos with a drilled technique .
Also straight-leg halo, deadman halo. Halo with legs together and straight.
Also reverse halo. Halo with the rotation around the head clockwise stabbing with the left hand, or counterclockwise stabbing with the right.
Halo with legs tucked into the chest and kicked out during the rotation, as in a munchmill.
Halo where only one hand touches the ground. Done by Lil Alex in 1984 .
Halo starting and ending on one shoulder, where the hands do not touch the ground.
