Artist is giving free crowns to women fighting cancer, after her mother inspired her to do more with her art and henna her friends head.


Washington, United States – Sarah Walters started henna crowns after her mother’s friend was diagnosed with cancer. When her hair started falling out, Sarah’s mother asked if she could create a beautiful mandala on her head to help boost her confidence.

Sarah gladly did the henna artwork, and it inspired a whole new part of her business. As a professional henna artist, Sarah decided to do henna crowns for cancer patients free of charge.

The artworks are a beautiful alternative to wigs and headscarves. Women who have had the chance to have their crowns painted in henna have said it makes them feel empowered. They say people look past their illness and see the beauty of the artwork on their heads.

This idea is a beautiful one and for women battling cancer, a lovely way to embrace their hair loss.

Sarah does wedding henna as well as pregnancy henna and encourages her clients to donate towards her crown fund. The fund is used to cover the costs of the henna so that the cancer patients don’t have to pay for their crowns.

Sarah’s henna crowns have been featured on multiple news media sites and recently started appearing across Facebook, prompting millions to admire her beautiful work.

You can take a look at her beautiful artwork in the video below.
