1 Corinthians 11

3Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. 5And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. 6If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7A man ought not to cover his head,[b (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20cor%2011&version=31#fen-NIV-28592b)] since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.

In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God. 13Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.

So what is this saying, Is this saying woman that dont cover their head when worshipping is sinning, and every man that has his head covered?

Can someone explain?

16If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practiceŚnor do the churches of God.Here is your key verse.
I'm not sure what version you are using. Here is the KJV:
1 Corinthians 11:16
16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
Neither the Jews, nor the churches of God (in Paul's time) had such a custom. But he was speaking to those in Corinth. There they had a different set of customs. He was teaching a principle, and using their customs to explain it. Jesus did much the same, using the customs of the Jews at the time to explain certain principles.
