(A well researched curriculum, expert approved!)

I have created a Mehendi design tutorial for beginners that has been bought 1000+times over and has become the most recommended Mehendi tutorial course for beginners from Mehendi experts across the nation. Why, you may ask.

Here's why:
  • It takes ONLY 4 HOURS to go from a 'beginner' to designing your own creative and elaborate Mehendi designs!
  • This is the only researched, comprehensive, and structured mehendi tutorial course for beginners available online.
  • Free alternatives on YouTube don't match up!
  • Unintimidating and short tutorials set the right tone and pace for learning.
  • Things explained down to exhaustive detail ensure clarity in learning.
  • The course gives you only how much you can handle at each level and builds up as you go along.


(You know...with YouTube around..)

In my initial days of learning the art, I had very few resources.

Access to Mehendi design tutorials was minimal to none (this was much before YouTube). It was a time when information sharing wasn't what it is today, so many experts kept their technique and designs a secret.

It wasn't an easy climb, trying to understand the art within these circumstances, but that just worked out brilliantly for me. This phase of my career taught me the most important lesson of my career, the art of learning to draw Mehendi designs the smart way. I'll tell you about the smart way in a bit. For now, read on.


(True story...)

For a long time, whenever my friends and family asked me for suggestions for Mehendi courses and training, I asked them all the same question “ Why would you pay for a Mehendi course when there are so many free tutorials on YouTube? ” And then I found out why.

Finding the right course for the beginner level Mehendi designs on YouTube isn't so easy.

If you've been looking to learn the art since a long time or have just started out, you are already familiar with the experience I'm talking about.

You'll find Mehendi enthusiasts demonstrating intermediate/advanced level designs that are ornate... elaborate...beautiful...just gorgeous. But let's be honest. You don't even get past that intimidating thumbnail image.

Here's a list of common reactions to Mehendi design tutorials on YouTube:

Too complicated.
Too complicated.
Too complicated.
Too complicated.
Too long.
Urggh. Horrible video quality.
Is this humanly possible?
Too complicated.
WHAT is that.

There is NO EXPERT/ENTHUSIAST...who has structured a course to suit a beginner's needs.

The few videos for beginners that I found are:
  • awkward and haphazard.
  • don't sequence their information well.
  • instruction is not in English/Hindi; if it is, the audio is bad.
  • the overall quality of the video is a put off in general.

I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND CONCEITED. There are some very good artists who put out brilliant work on YouTube. I've subscribed to so many of these channels. They are genuine experts in the art and deliver excellent pieces, never failing to impress. But, they don't do much for beginners.

Most tutorials teach you to draw the finished piece paying less to no attention to the break up of the design. Here are two big reasons why this will surely backfire:

1. You GIVE UP within first few minutes because you will be confused outta your mind!
2. You reproduce a somewhat similar piece and are unhappy with it. Results: Diminished confidence and you still don't have a clue of what's going on. You GIVE UP ANYWAY.

I get you.

Over the years, I developed a Mehendi design course for Beginners that achieved a guaranteed technique of taking you from
Beginner/ 'I'm just here for fun' Level
Advanced/ 'I'm actually good at this' Level
In a matter of hours.

Post that, I worked on the course structure, researched all parts, experimented endlessly, and produced a guided tutorial course that has helped over 1000+ Mehendi design artists in India and abroad!



(To analyse designs, break them down and observe recurring patterns in design)

I realised that once you changed the way you see a Mehendi design, no matter how complicated it seems, it unravels itself into tiny simpler parts that can be learnt and mastered in no time.

I've understood that Mehendi is an art that must be learnt from the ground up. I also learnt that understanding the components of a Mehendi design is the most crucial part of the training.

From there onwards, it's a game of unlimited pairing and creating the most beautiful designs using just few simple parts and building on them, adding detail and accents as you go along.

Many artists agree that it's a 3 step process to achieving competency in the art form.

Learn to draw basic Indian motifs
Use filler designs to give detail to motifs
Couple motifs together to form a finished Mehendi design!
Like I said earlier, video tutorials weren't accessible when I started out, so I studied the process of applying mehendi by myself. A lot of experiments (disappointments) later, I figured out the 3 step process that structures your learning in a logical manner with a better overall learning curve.

I used this technique myself and taught my students the same way and it was FOOLPROOF...with excellent efficiency...not exaggerating.

I had the ideal 'no child left behind' situation in the classroom because the technique suited all levels and all kinds of learners.

How does one keep the henna color dark for a long time?

We all want the mehndi color to last for the maximum time. In order to do so, you have to try avoiding washing those body parts frequently that have mehndi on them. Using too much of soap too can fade away the design. Keep a check on these aspects and I'm sure your mehndi color will last for quite some time!

​What are the precautionary methods required to be taken after mehndi application?

Mehndi just takes about 15-20 minutes to dry after it has been applied. What you need to keep in mind is that you do not smudge the design. Keep your hands away from any object until it dries. Once dry, apply a mixture of lemon and sugar evenly onto the mehndi. This will help you to get a deep dark color.
