Hello -
I taught myself henna and it took about 2 years before I was able to
purchase , mix, and apply henna at a consistently high enough level I
felt comfortable chargeing for. Of course that wa 7 years ago when
there was virtually no info on henna, especially in English.
I have three girls who have been working with me in varying capacities
for the last 2 seasons and it's great.
I did a little ornientation session with them, made practice sheets
similiar to when kids learn to right and shared my tips, tricks and
techniques. Whithin 2 months all of these girls could do henna of high
enough quality and consistently to work with me at large events.
i still mix all the henna and do the worrying but that is our
particular choice and arrangement.
So, yes I love my henna apprentices and it's worked out beautifully.
Mind you, these are also people I have known for over 10 years so we
had a solid and comfortable repoire besides having lots of fun
But - I can't personally recommend anyone in your neighborhood for
this, hopefully someone else here can.
Good luck finding someone to work with, it's kindof fun.
