Top Henna Artists for San Francisco Events and Weddings
True, Henna traditionally is a bridal or wedding party celebration, rich in ritual and tradition, for Indian brides. But, its not just for weddings! Prenatal Mehndi is equally important, and many other celebrations are ideal for Henna Art.
Birthday Parties, Baby Showers, Family Reunions, Festivals, Fairs, School Carnivals, and Corporate Events….. all are popular places to find the art of Henna.
Henna is derived from leaves and twigs of the Henna plant, as those leaves are milled down to a very find powder and combined with organic ingredients to create a paste. Lemon juice, Eucalyptus Oil, water, and sugar, are usually used in the paste that makes the actual Henna. When applied, it becomes Mehndi– meaning the application of the Henna for decorative ceremonious reasons is called, Mehndi. Check out a previous article about Henna FAQ here.
The paste will go on as a wet orange substance, and after 4 or more hours, the paste can be carefully removed, leaving a beautifully patterned stain. Intricate and unique, these designs last 3-10 days depending on where they are applied on the body. Thicker skin will retain the pigment longer- so the heels of the feet, or palms of hands, can remain “tattooed” for about 10-days, while other parts will fade sooner.
