Henna Art

Henna has been around for over 7,000 years, a symbol not only of love but an essential part of Eastern culture. Henna is a safe, natural dye made from the leaves of the henna plant. The leaves are dried and powdered, mixed into a paste; then used to apply beautiful designs onto the skin. These can last up 2 weeks on the skin.

Fareha not only has the experience, but the passion and knowledge when it comes to mehndi. She uses the best henna powders from around the world which are specially sourced for their superb staining qualities to give you a beautiful rich blackberry stain. You know the old saying 'The darker the mehndi the more your mother-in-law will love you!'

Fareha Ahmad specialises in Indian and Arabic bridal designs. Her work is very unique and fine, the colour is absolutely amazingly dark because she uses only the finest Henna.

Henna Stain Results

Ideally henna should be applied 2 days before the wedding/event to ensure the best possible stain. Once the henna has been applied, it needs to remain on the skin for at least 8/10 hours and then gently removed. The stain will initially be bright orange but will deepen to a beautiful deep mahogany colour over 48 hours with the correct aftercare.

*The exact stain will vary from person to person depending on where on the body it was applied and how long it was kept on the skin.

Tips

Please note that henna needs approx 48hrs for the colour to develop so book your henna appointment two days before the wedding or event.

Henna stains will vary from person to person and where on the body it was applied. The stain will start off bright orange and then deepen over 48 hours.

Ensure that your waxing, manicure and pedicure are done before the henna application

Always make sure your henna artist uses freshly made henna paste and NOT ready made cones which are often full of chemicals and produce poor stain results

Hand lotions, not leaving the henna paste on long enough; excessive washing as well as stress may all cause the henna to stain a lighter colour.

Henna Parties can either be booked by the hour with a minimum of a 2 hour booking or the henna artist can charge per design/ hand with a minimum of 10 people attending the party.
