When I first got into henna (which has now been a year ago, wow!) I watched Youtube videos and learned many different styles of henna and the basic elements of those styles. It was so cool and calming watching people do henna and it was just as fun to do henna myself.
I like to just let my creativity flow when I am doing henna. 99% of the time I don't plan out what design I am going to do, I just do what feels right. Also, when I just let the henna flow, it's almost like a surprise at the end like, "wow this actually turned out pretty nice". I found I do my best work off the top of my head, lol. I mean, people love things that are original, right, lol.
I look at henna as more than just the stain that you get at the end. I look at it as an experience. The cooling feeling of the henna paste on your skin, the pleasant scent of essential oils and henna, and that feeling of being pampered. So let that henna flow guys! You'll only get better from here :)
Oh, and Beleza Artistica now has a Youtube channel. Keep your eye out for new videos and projects. Thanks everyone.
