Ah, you are in for a treat today. Luma R. Brieuc, a henna artist from Montreal, has submitted some photos. Luma’s work was featured a little while ago in a posting about head art.
As Luma writes to me:
I started getting henna crowns requests several years ago through my henna business and
when I was approached by Frances Darwin,— founder of Henna Heals— about
back in 2010 to collaborate on her project, I knew we were using our creative
talents to help people in a special way, particularly women who were going through cancer
and who needed to feel beautiful regardless of the transformation their bodies were going through.
The photos HotHeads 01-02-03 were taken in Spring 2011 in Toronto, at the Henna Heals
workshop where I was training a few henna-artists on how to do henna crowns.
I myself, live in Montreal (6 hours away). The original design is by me, and the henna artwork
was done by three talented henna-artists on 3 lovely women who were going through chemo and radiotherapy.
They generously accepted to serve as our henna muses for the day.
I wish I had known about Luma when I lost my own hair. Imagine walking around with a gorgeous henna crown on your head – who could feel miserable then?
