On addition to water the $N {a}^{+}$ part of NaCl is attracted to the oxygen side of the water molecule, whereas the $C {l}^{-}$ side is attracted to the hydrogens' side of the water molecule.
This results the sodium chloride to split in water, and the NaCl dissolves into separate $N {a}^{+}$ and $C {l}^{-}$ atoms. A hydration shell is built around them which prevents $N {a}^{+}$ and $C {l}^{-}$ to form ionic bonds.
Finally it is confirmed that the salt ($N a C l$) is dissolved in water.
