Creating a Henna Design Notebook

Organization is Key!

step-1a.png

  • Design books should include only your own original drawings OR designs from books which allow fair use under their copyright. 
  • Never use another artist's photos or designs to promote your work

Organize your book!

  • You should have a variety of themes and styles in a variety of price points
  • Your smallest designs should take under 3 minutes to apply
  • Medium designs should be 5-10 minutes to apply
  • Large designs should take no more than 20 minutes to apply

 step-3.png Divide by price

  • Use tabs to clearly label your price sections
  • Each section is like a chapter, and all designs in that section are that price. 
  • You can even color-code the tabs with your tokens to help stay organized.

step-4.pngCreate gorgeous henna!

  • Even with a design book, feel free to make adjustments to the design as you work. This creates a more personal experience for your client and helps you exercise your creative side.

step-5.pngShow designs placed as well as on their own 

  • Your designs should be "life sized", which makes it easier for clients to visualize what the design will look like on their own skin. 
  • Not every design has to be on a template, and you can encourage clients to mix it up- just because its shown on a hand doesn't mean it can't go on a foot or arm!

step-6.pngMake copies

  • For our smallest events, we have no fewer than 3 design books. Thats 1 for the artist, and 2 for the guests. 
  • Make identical copies of your books for the guests and artists. 1 each for a team of artists, plus copies for the display table. 
  • Very large festivals could use 9+ books for clients to review.

step-finished.pngYour gorgeous books are ready to go!

  • Fill empty sleeves or extra pages with promotional and informational flyers.
  • Include a promotion for Henna Cones or Henna Kits
  • Promote your private Events
  • Warn against chemical "henna"
