I met a young girl this weekend at @vegenation .... she had never had henna before, and she was super excited. We sat down and she decided something simple was best, so we created this flower and talked about her beautiful red curly hair and her love of unicorns! She was so lovely and sweet, what a pleasure to spend time with her! And then she stood up, and showed her family, and accidentally got bumped and smudged her henna! She immediately burst into tears and was super devastated - but i quickly put my social worker hat on, (good in a crisis!) told her to come and sit back down because i had a secret for her! She sat down, sobbing, and i told her that whenever you get your first henna, if it’s accidentally smudged you get an extra special experience, because you get to make a wish while the henna artist fixes it for you!!! She looked at me with disbelief and i reassured her it was true - but shared that she had to stop crying for the wish to work! She calmed down, we fixed the henna (you would never know!) and of course she got to make a wish!
Sometimes henna isn’t just about creating something beautiful, sometimes it’s about sharing a story with someone to make their day a little better. Sometimes it’s about believing in magic. Sometimes it’s about helping someone let go of sadness.
Henna is magical, but you are the vehicle! Don’t forget to look at your customers and share love. I say this often, but I’ll say it again. When you henna someone you are giving them a little of yourself and absorbing some of their energy! That’s so special! Human connection is so important! 🌿
