Are you ready to improve your henna designing skills?

How would it feel to develop your very own signature style?

(One that your clients will love and choose you for every time they need a henna fix?)

You're in the right place.

The Hennapreneur Design Lab offers a collection of in-depth, curated design classes and follow-along templates to build your henna skill set so you can work with clients more confidently, creating stunning designs that wow them every single time.

Serious Question.

How long are you going to drool over that other artist's work - when YOU can create beautiful pieces that are all your own?

I get it. It can be really hard to create designs without a photo to reference for guidance. As frustrating as design composition might be for you right now, let's get a couple of things straight:

  • The challenge isn't that you're a less than talented artist. (On the contrary, you are very capable of designing beautiful pieces!)
  • Not all practice is created equal. If you're just doodling the same ol' things - you're always going to create those same ol' things, too.
  • You don't have to be a sixty-bajillion year henna veteran to crack the code to design composition.
  • It's totally fine that you're not Insta-famous. You can still craft pieces that will gain the attention of your clients, and will make them want to revisit you for over and over again.
  • Speaking of clients, you can definitely make generous income even a modest following because retaining clients is significantly better than always chasing after new ones.

Wanna know what's holding you back?

You've not yet discovered the creative gold mine locked inside of you - that thing that sets you apart from every henna artist in your market, that turns your clients into raving fans, that no one else can duplicate or replace, and that turns you from being a henna artist to the henna artist:

Your Signature Style

Aren't you tired of the uncertainty that comes with creating henna designs on the fly?
I mean, it's a lot of work to have to map and plan out every single design just to avoid the horrifying moment when your mind goes blank and suddenly, your design loses its flow.

Wouldn't it be great to know exactly what skills you need to work on when you sit down to practice your designing?
Reality check: your time is precious, and you know that as soon as you try to get into the swing of it, you'll be interrupted by a child, a chore, or a phone call that can't be ignored. (#amirite?) Half of the struggle in finding the time to practice is realizing once you've grabbed your cone that, wait, what am I practicing again?

Don't you want to explore all of what henna designing has to offer?
It's an art form that you can use to literally create anything you'd like! Aren't you tired of limiting yourself to those same old tired designs because you're just not sure how to incorporate something new?

And what about those times when your client says "oh, just do whatever you want - I trust you!"
Wouldn't it feel wonderful to hear those words and to feel excited about that beautiful creative process that you've just received permission to explore (versus wanting the earth to swallow you where you sit because uhhhh wtf are you supposed to do now?! 😳😫)?

But what if?! What if you could...

...create flawless designs effortlessly?
...amaze your clients with your creative mastery?
...never lose your way in the middle of building a henna design again?
...feel confident creating one-of-a-kind pieces for each and every client you serve?
...be recognized for your work - not because of your watermark, but because of your uniqueness?

(...need I go on?)

The good news is:

You can have all of those things.

You can discover your signature style, you can achieve new heights with your henna designing skills, and you can be the artist who you've always dreamt of being.

You just need a little direction.

And, baby, I've got you covered. 😘

Practice the design concepts anywhere with these printable sheets - first by tracing and then by giving it a go freehand.

It's time you took your henna skills to the next level.

Hey! My name is Chelsea, and I'm your design instructor, mentor, and personal cheerleader.

I specialize in teaching henna artists how to start, grow, and sustain profitable businesses with their art. Here in the Hennapreneur Design Lab, I'll help you build your henna skills so that you can master design composition, develop your signature style, and feel more confident creating art for others.

I began working with henna part-time in 2011 as a self-taught henna artist, and in 2014 I left my career in social work to dedicate my attention to my business in a full-time capacity. I've served as a featured instructor at a multiple henna conferences with international attendance since 2015, and officially launched Hennapreneur in early 2018 in order to provide online education to henna artists worldwide.

When I first started my own business, I learned the ropes the hard way - with trial and error (after error, after error). Today, I'm here to help you skip the hassle and ignite your journey with henna from the start.

It's my mission to support henna artists like you in reaching your goals with your business - whether that's creating a fun henna side-hustle, developing a dependable full-time business, using your skills to support your community, or whatever it is that makes your heart beat a little faster.

I'm obsessed with your success, and I can't wait to see you thrive here in the Design Lab!
