Meet the Maker | Inside Scoop

I have been having a ton of fun taking part in March’s Meet the Maker. I found out about it from a fellow henna artist on her IG feed @alchemyhenna and she’s also a client of ours here at Henna Sooq. Joanne Walker founded the idea and has all the details laid out on her IG @joannehawker. We’re now half way through the month of March (almost!) and I’ve share behind the scene photos, along with really opening up about the brand, the vision and my life. It came at exactly the right time. This is therapy I don’t have to pay for 🙂 Here are a few posts that you told us were your favorites. For more, head to our IG page @hennasooq Day 8 | Where did Henna Sooq journey from and to? Back in 2005, I took a henna workshop with a well known artist in Montreal (where I’m originally from) and I was completely hooked. Starting out with some henna cones and 50 boxes of Jamila henna, Henna Sooq was born. In 2008, we moved to Toronto which was even more of a henna hub. I was busy with indian weddings, festivals and my first wholesale account @honey_fig . Sadly we had to move back to the USA in 2010, leaving behind our Canadian friends, family, our first house and many clients. I miss the days when they picked up your composting. So we make the big move back to Maryland, which I do really love and we’ve been here ever since. Maryland is fun, diverse, artistic, hip and full of my favorites creatives. Day...

5 Easy Steps To Getting Rich as a Henna Artist

I can guarantee that from my own professional experience you can have a full time business in the henna industry that can support you and your family. I highly recommend that to start if you do plan to work in the henna industry for the next five years, that you come up with a business plan and make sure all of your book keeping is in order from the start. Creatives (and most people in general) definitely don’t want to be scrambling around to find receipts, expenses and invoices at a later time when you could be spending those hours on making your henna business absolutely amazing!
