Henna Designs – an update from a busy henna artist

I have been one busy henna artist this past summer! I have met so many wonderful clients who are now “regulars” at the salon & I have been to numerous awesome events. I have been so busy in fact, this summer I have added to my business two wonderful henna artists Sarah & Sathya. Lovely, talented artists who I am so glad to have on our team.

Since I have left you without many pictures to gaze on, here’s a bunch of recent henna designs from parties and events all across Michigan this summer. These range from weddings , to sweet 16 birthday parties , bridal showers & private appointments at the henna salon . ENJOY!

Henna Party for Girls

Today I had a henna party at the salon here in Ypsilanti, MI . This was a really fun group  – a family that is hosting their own henna party with one of our henna artists. They came into the salon to have their henna designs done before the party they are having. Each of the girls had picked out a henna design and I repeated a similar design on their hands and feet. Here are the pictures :

Sexy Henna

I really like to do henna on creative places of the body. Sometimes I get to do some sexy henna designs like this one here on the top of the thigh. I think this falls into the ” sexy henna ” category because of the placement and because of the organic movement of the design. A henna design like this would be cute for a wedding instead of a garter of something fun for a party.

Without further adieu – here’s a pic of some sexy henna for your enjoyment  .

Henna for a Bachelorette Party

I had a great group of ladies who came in for a session of Henna for a Bachelorette Party . They came into my salon to celebrate the non-traditional bride and her soon-to-be wedding day . I have to say, I do love some girl talk while I get to do henna for a bachelorette party.

Here are the pictures . This is what the bride had done – two hands with henna glove designs that she choose as well as a mandala henna design on her left shoulder .

This girl choose an interesting concept. She wanted a trail of flowers from her hand to her upper arm and then ends with a tree on the top. Very “out of the box” but she ended up really loving it.

For this one, she asked for overlapping flowers that trailed up the arm and with a butterfly somewhere in the design.  So here is her floral henna sleeve .

This girl has my sense of humor. She wanted an octopus on her arm and cherry blossoms on her hand. So cute.

Henna for Weddings

The importance of henna for weddings, especially Indian weddings, doesn’t just stop at the bridal henna design. The mother of the bride and sister of the bride’s henna needs to be very special, too. Often time the bride’s mother and sister will come to my henna salon the day before before the official Mehndi party and have their henna applied so that their stain has already developed by the time of the henna party. Today the mother and sister came in to the salon because they wanted more elaborate henna designs than time would allow for tomorrow when we have 70 guests to henna-up at the Mehndi party. The bride is also getting married in Troy, Michigan with the reception the next day in Ohio.

Here are pictures of the henna for the weddings :
