What is the  Weave Workshop: The “Weave Workshop” is a conference/ workshop set up for youth led by entrepreneur & professional hairstylist Tiffan’e Nicol and Kay Brown teaching life skills using the trade of hair weaving. Weaving is the platform Tiffan’e Nicol has chosen to stand on due to her 10 plus years in the beauty industry but the message and information given in this event will extend far pass just weaving. Tiffane’s mission is to build up motivated, self-respected, positive, successful young adults! “#YouthMinistry”


The Weave Workshop itinerary consist of Learning the trade of Braiding & Sewing Weave, Self-Image, Social Media Image, Financial advice, career focusing, Goal Setting, motivational speaking & entrepreneur building!

The Teen Weave Workshop want to gift mannequins for Christmas to the youth. Due to our pass Weave Workshop Events, we believe that every teen girl that attend this event wants a human hair mannequin head in their home. Having a human hair mannequin head in home will help our teens master beauty trade skills and utilize idle time. Unfortunately we have teens that's attend this workshop that come from unstable and non-traditional home settlings; so we are calling on our fellow Beauty Bosses and Neighbors to help us put smiles on our youth faces.

Issa Mannequin & Beauty Supplies Drive!!!! Gently used human hair mannequins and brand new mannequins can be drop off at Style Mobb University!  All Mannequins Drop-offs must be in by
