Hair Healing and Adornment

We gather here to celebrate and connect with each other and ourselves. We are here to adorn, be adorned and facilitate self-love, self-care and transformation.  We weave in our connection to the earth and the land, the seasons and the elements as central truth of cultivating beauty from the inside out.

 

We are here to provide our unique offerings  as we come together on the Cedar Bloom Land for the Spirit Weavers Gathering. Among the trees we will create a beautifully adorned salon space, incorporating the beauty of the land around us into an alter of sacred self-care. We will be offering hair services woven with adornment and intention…..Ritual cuts, oil treatments, braids, floral adornment, stick and poke tattooing, henna, color healing and crown empowerment. It will be a place to come and kneel at the alter of your self, and honor and adorn the unique beauty of YOU, reflected and held by the land and our sisters as witness.

We are working to create a new model for cultivating beauty by building and facilitating an intentional Space filled with love and void of  judgement or perpetuation of negative beauty beliefs and standards. We aim to create a sense of sacredness and intentionality around beauty so that it may be felt deep within ourselves and grow to permeate our collective world.

The Hair Healing and Adornment Space is a place to come and learn about the beauty and importance of our hair, the sacredness of self care, and the ways of protection and adornment of our crowns.

In this space our Hair Sisters will offer hair trims, rituals of hair care, oiling and brushing, braiding, weaving, and crown adornment using the plants from the forest to decorate our crowns in earthly beauty and rooted strength.

2019 ADORNMENT OFFERINGS WILL BE SHARED THIS SPRING

MEET OUR ADORNMENT SISTERS:

Roxie Jane Hunt

Roxie Jane Hunt is an artist and hair weaver. She is Creative Director of How-to Hair Girl, a blog and shop which seeks to empower people through the art of Hair and it’s importance in our lives.

Her experimentation with hair and plants and earth-based alchemy brought her to create a line of small-batch earth-based products for hair styling and care called the Free Your Hair Earth Collection. She can often be found growing, digging, mixing, and infusing in her little Seattle home-based apothecary and parlor hair salon.

Through the medium of hair, Roxie has woven together a community of radical beauty, acceptance, and personal exploration through hair and the gifts of our natural world. She became a Spiritweaver sister last year, and experienced an indescribable shift. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to share with you and bare witness to your journeys as our community grows together in to one big, beautiful, fierce embrace of the feminine heart.

Find Roxie at @howtohairgirl for hair, ritual, and adornment and @filthandbeauty for family, and my personal life.

Evelyn Kennedy

Evelyn Kennedy has been a hairstylist for her whole life and licensed for 12 years. She believes body adornment is a simple and elegant way to express self love and to give and receive love from others. Her hair and makeup practice creates space to build deep connections and use the body as a canvas for story telling and exploration of self. The way we present ourselves holds great power, and playfulness with cosmetic modifications can result in joyful release and empowerment. Evelyn is thrilled to share these skills with the spirit weavers community.

Hanah Zinn

Hair braiding is not only an esthetic, it’s a cultural fixture.  It’s a tool for community building and personal reflection; its a traditional skill.  Hanah’s work is to help rescue ritual beauty from the grips of capitalism and patriarchy, and place them back into the hands of the people.  Hanah offers classic to complex braided hairstyles as a service to those celebrating and centering in their body. Intuitive designs are intended to serve the braided in their efforts and affirm a playful, expressive self.  She has been braiding for 20 years with intensive study in the last four years, and a more recent invitation to the public. Raised in the Midwest tying friendship bracelets, macrame, and weaving baskets, her practice is coming full circle in Southern Appalachia.  She braids to honor rites of passage for those moving through milestones. She braids as an act of encouragement for those learning how to own the space they take up; and as an act of love for those defending their bodily autonomy. She braids as an act of resistance against forces that benefit from our isolation and as an act of celebration for our strength in togetherness.

Check out her traveling braid bar at ThreeStrandBraid.com and on Instagram @t.h.r.e.e.s.t.r.a.n.d.s.

Mandy Wray

Mandy Wray is an Austin-based artist, hair witch, and healing facilitator who works with hair as a medium for creative self-expression, transformation, and color therapy. She considers flowers & crystals to be her most powerful allies for inspiration, believing in their ability to facilitate change and spark creativity. She feels their beauty connects us to the wisdom of the Earth, serving as a physical manifestation of the intentions we hold most sacred to our journey.

 

Mandy’s snake path of experiences has nurtured a desire to help others step into their power through a self-care ceremony she refers to as Mane Medicine. During the ceremony she will offer you specific combinations of plant & crystal allies she recommends based on the energy you reflect to her in the moment. She utilizes four specific hydrosol sprays that she created in collaboration with the Austin-based apothecary Ritual Union. Each spray contains herbal nutrients, flower & crystal essences, a crystal specimen, and a healthy dose of magic.

 

Mane Medicine is intended to help you establish space in your life for growth and manifestation, as you continue to navigate your own journey through both the shadow and the light.

Bianca Foss

Bianca likes to say that she’s an artist having a moment with hair. She is a painter, a clothing maker and a space creator who imbues the creative fire into every medium she works through. She believes that everyone has a unique energetic signature that can be tapped into and brought into physical form.

A hair change is the signal, both visually and spiritually that you are ready to step into a more realized vision of the self who you are becoming. The transformative space that is the gathering offers the perfect opportunity to rewrite your story, whether it’s stepping to your power or shedding an outdated story of yourself.

Bianca trained at Edo Salon with Jayne Matthews, and yes, she can bang out “that shag” like nobody’s business. She’s here for your dream mullets, textured pixies, French bobs, and if you want to invent a new haircut especially for you, she would love nothing more than to take you there. She specializes in razor cutting.

In addition to haircuts, Bianca will be offering custom bang consults at this year’s gathering. In these sessions, she will look at what makes you uniquely beautiful and celebrate it with the perfect frame for your face. 

She will be at the adornment center for Sun & Moon. She is so thrilled to be a facilitator of your transformation at this year’s gathering
