Henna Hero Hangout

We are hosting a new kind of event that we call a kind of Drink and Draw evening for your squad. Hang out in my Brooklyn loft enjoying snacks and drinks (BYOB) while you learn about henna and draw on each other. Schedule it on a Friday night for a fun hang before you go to dinner or the club, or do it as a Sunday brunch event, before the mimosas and eggs benedict are ordered. You’ll even get henna to take home with you. The more the merrier but 7 people maximum. $125—1 hour

Henna for Real - the Pro Pathway

If you’re serious about becoming a henna artist, whether pro or for your friends, the following classes comprise the ideal syllabus for you. Each class builds on what you learned in the previous. As the only person in the class you will have individualized instruction and support that is appropriate for your level of skill and knowledge.

The classes are a half hour each and get right to the point; you will learn exactly what you need to know and go home with henna and instructions so you can practice on your own; see descriptions below. You can repeat any class for a refresher. Take these one at a time, or string a few together. Schedule two (or more) classes back to back and you’ll get a discount. Each class is $50 (including class materials and take home henna).
