Teen Weave Workshop

Join us for the Teen Weave Workshop, an empowering event for ages 12 to 17, brought to you by Style Mobb University and led by professional hairstylist Tiffan’e Nicol and Kay Brown. This workshop goes beyond teaching hair weaving techniques; it aims to equip our youth with essential life skills, including self-confidence, leadership, character building, and healthy survival skills.


In today's world, our youth are constantly exposed to negative influences from social media, reality TV, and music. To counteract this, we provide positive role models and invaluable tools to foster success. Our mission is to plant seeds of positivity and bridge the gaps that often lead to destructive habits, superficial aspirations, and issues related to drug abuse and abandonment.


The Weave Workshop itinerary is carefully designed to cover a range of topics, including learning the art of braiding and sewing weave, discussions on self-image and social media, financial guidance, career focus, goal setting, motivational talks, and building an entrepreneurial mindset. Through education and essential skills, we strive to empower our youth to become self-respecting, motivated, and thriving young adults.


Join us for the Teen Weave Workshop and be part of the positive change in shaping the future of our generations. Let's break the cycles and build healthy adults! #YouthMinistry


The Teen Weave Workshop has a special request this holiday season - we want to gift mannequins to the youth. We have observed that every teen girl who attends our workshop desires to have a human hair mannequin head at home. This will not only help them master beauty trade skills but also provide them with a productive and creative outlet during their free time.


Sadly, some of the teens who attend our workshop come from unstable or non-traditional home environments. We are reaching out to our incredible Beauty Bosses and Neighbors to help us bring smiles to the faces of these deserving young individuals.


Introducing the Issa Mannequin & Beauty Supplies Drive! We kindly request that you consider donating gently used human hair mannequins or brand new ones to Style Mobb University. All mannequin drop-offs must be made by December 9th.


Your contribution will have a profound impact on the lives of these teens, providing them with the tools they need for skill development and a brighter future. Let's come together to make a difference and spread joy to the youth in our community this Christmas season. Thank you for your support!
