How can we help?

The Ancient Sunrise® stylists have learned to work with henna and other plant powders. Maria is a talented and innovative licensed cosmetologist who utilizes both oxidative dyes and Ancient Sunrise® products. She has developed many of the techniques in this book so that stylists can integrate henna into their salon practices, and developed the techniques for lightening henna. Maria wrote most of the "Stylists and Salons" chapter of the "Ancient Sunrise Henna for Hair" book , addressing it to salons and stylists because she has a unique understanding of how henna can fit into your salon and how it can benefit you - as a stylist - and your clients. She and Melissa have dyed hundreds of swatches of human hair so that they can see firsthand the effects of different acids, plant powders, procedures, and temperatures on hennaed hair.

We will help you transition clients away from oxidative hair dye, or your whole salon if necessary! This transition is a win for your clients, for you, and for the planet we live on.
