Followed by 
Globalize Your Mind Women's Retreat on Oct 15-16
Join 1000 people from all backgrounds &
 all religions for a public display of cultural love & community togetherness. 

"Them" against "Us"

We live in a world which constantly tries to divide us, to pit us against one another. To make us feel like it is "them" against "us"
Well once a year 700+ peace loving people gather in Michigan to celebrate community, art, spirituality, individuality and global love. In the spirit of togetherness, all are welcome.

Who are we?

We are the people who love culture. 
Who love trying something new. 
Who love stepping outside of the box. 

We are the people who want to see more beauty in the world and are committed to making it a reality. 
We are the people who love unique, hand-made goods, and traditional items. 
We love people watching and learning about other ways of doing life. 
We love art.
We love color.
We love fashion.
We love experiences that open and push us to be our best selves.
We are curious souls. 

And we want the energy of being around positive people. 

Why culture?  
Why headwraps?
Because from Africa to China, from the runway to the temple, from the board room to the kitchen, headwraps are a global phenonemena used for fashion, cultural and spiritual reasons. 

For this reason, headwraps are a wonderful way to explore many cultures of the world. The Headwrap Expo is a vehicle to do so. 

Founded by anthropologist Zarinah El-Amin Naeem in 2013, The Headwrap Expo has grown into an eclectic space where people feel free to be themselves while learning about others.

This year, the one-day expo has been expanded to a full 3-day program with Day 1 being the community day and days 2-3 a powerful training experience for visionary women leaders called Globalize Your Mind.

Join people from across the United States and indeed internationally who love culture, art and travel. 

“The act of wrapping is like the building of courage, strength, spirituality, and love all at once. With each fold, tuck or pull of the cloth, you become beautifully-wrapped in a sense of inner strength and a higher purpose.” 
-Zarinah El-Amin Naeem,
What do our clothes say about us?
How do the clothes we wear affect our moods, our emotions and our spirituality?

How does religion and tradition mold us to look a certain way? 

The Headwrap Expo offers an insightful introduction to the exciting and dynamic world of fashion in relation to human behaviour and how it intersects with the way we do faith. 

How does fashion impact our daily lives?

I mean, why do many Sikhs wear turbans? 
Or why some Muslim women wear scarves and some don’t? 
Or wonder if Jewish women, Rastas or Christians wrap at all? 
Or do you just love the fashionable and comfortable nature of wrapping? 

If you are curious about intersection of fashion and faith, this is the event for you. 

Sunday is all about exposing yourself to new ideas, new sights and new sounds....it's a day for culture and love. 
 DAY 1 
 Sun. Oct 14 (open to public)
This year Zarinah and her team of headwrapologists will be leading roughly 90 minutes of concentrated tutorial time.

Presenting .....
Are you a visionary woman yearning to use culture to nourish your soul, your life and your leadership? 

Plan to stay after the Headwrap Expo for a 2 women's retreat and cultural leadership training led by  Zarinah El-Amin Naeem.


Because frankly we are at a pivotal moment in society in which we realize that women's efforts, our work, our desires, our motivations, our lives are critical.

Our successful global evolution requires women professionals who think creatively, are empathetic to the views of others, conscious of their views, open to new ways of thinking, and who sense and forsee emerging trends. 

To accomplish this, you need a global mindset and an enthusiasm to embrace new challenges, diversity, and a measure of ambiguity. Simply being aware of "others" is not sufficient; it is the caliber of your global leadership that makes the difference.
