Inspirit Arts meetups are free social and instructional events for the general public to learn head wrapping skills from volunteer teachers and their students. Headwrapping is such a popular trend in America, that it’s an ideal skill for hair, fashion and beauty professionals to learn. We thrive on partnering with other groups with related interests. . We welcome hair stylists, hairdressers, cosmetologists, fashion designers, vendors and other self employed entrepreneurs to co-host our meetups in their salons, studios, beauty supply stores, wig shops, boutiques and other small business venues where headwrapping services would naturally appeal to their existing clientele. Head Wrapping, Head Covering, and Hair Tying, are all general terms that describe a variety of traditional and contemporary styles and fabrics that diverse cultures use to adorn their heads. Everybody throughout the world has head wraps somewhere in their culture. This is probably why our gatherings attract such a culturally and racially diverse, multi-ethnic, fun loving crowd of curious people, like you, who simply wonder what they’d look like wearing a hair scarf. Hair wraps appeals to a wide range of people; From bikers to cheer leaders, from office workers to hippies, from trendy dressers to practical uniform wearers, from brides on their most special day to students who simply want to cover up a bad hair day. We are open to women, men and children of all ages. Come learn which styles and fabrics compliment your straight, curly, kinky, wavy, nappy, processed, braids, afro, dread locks and natural hair styles. You’ll get a thrill out of it seeing how much headwraps bring color to your face and enhance your self image, weather they have hair or not. When balding or hair thinning requires protective head covers, we recommend head wraps and expandable headbands. These stylish hair accessories are a more comfortable, all season, fashion alternative to hats and wigs. Head covers have popular demand when hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia, stress, thyroid dysfunction and other health issues are a problem. Several Inspirit Arts partners were prompted by personal experience to create loving, nurturing healing groups to address the particular issues around chemotherapy and medical hair loss.They lovingly and patiently help members practice full head cover styles using hand woven scarves that are more attractive and flattering then chemo caps. Though our meetups are typically free, some non-profit partners host fundraisers for love offerings and/or gently used clean scarves to donate to adult cancer patients. For children with cancer support, some of our meetup partners give opportunity to help foot the bill for gifting small size hand made headband head wraps to children in hospitals. Inspirit Headwrapping Arts is motivated by philanthropy and community service. Our goal is to grow this community so that members can enjoy traveling from state to state to learn hair scarf techniques from each other and master teachers that have specialty styles to share. Wrap swapping is a common theme where meetup members barter and trade headwraps. Brand new head wrapping scarves and hair accessories are often available for sale by crafters and vendors. Inspirit Arts started partnering with other meetup groups in response to customers and facebook fans at ‘Headwrapping by Miss NebSa’, who constantly ask for hand-on lessons and workshops in their areas. Inspirit means to encourage, animate and enliven. We offer to collaborate with your group to simply encourage and preserve the Art of Head Wrapping, through serving humanity at fun, animated, and lively events. Have a GREAT hair day, the Inspirit Arts headwrapping way !

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
