Beautifully Wrapped’s Headwrap Expo

Head-wrapping is a trend that intersects both faith and fashion. The practice has been long used in cultural communities — hijabis wrap scarves around their head to conceal their hair and increase their modesty, some Sikh men wear turbans, and African women, at times, wrap their hair in order to signify they are on a spiritual journey. Regardless of the reason, culture, or religion, the practice has existed for centuries. This expo will not only shed light on its history but will give attendees access to workshops, speaking events, and fashion shows to explore the ages-old tradition.

Doors open at 12:30 p.m.; 15801 Michigan Ave., Dearborn; 313-377-2857; headwrapexpo.com; Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door.
