What is Southern Exposure? This “destination education” is a new concept created by Darcy, just for henna professionals, or aspiring henna pros. Students will gain clarity on their brand’s mission, establish a brand strategy and marketing plan, and execute a fully-styled peak-stain photoshoot in a breathtaking natural setting, with an intimate, supportive group of creatives.


Who is Southern Exposure? Henna Lounge’s first event will be hosted by Darcy Vasudev, with Victoria Welch as a guest instructor and co-hostess. Future event guest instructors TBA!

Why Southern Exposure? With dozens of henna conferences popping up around the world, Darcy felt that the needs of advanced artists were not being fully met. Let’s face it, a one hour marketing or photography class is not even going to scratch the surface. In order to truly excel, artists must learn techniques to present and market their work in a compelling way. Darcy also felt it was important to have a very small group, in order to fully customize the event to the needs of each individual.

When is Southern Exposure? - Our first event, Southern Exposure Tulum, is September 18-23rd 2019. It is already sold out, but you can join the wait-list. Stay tuned for upcoming dates!

Where is Southern Exposure? - New destinations TBA. One thing is for certain, the locations will be beautiful natural and/or cultural locations.
