What is henna?
Henna is a natural dye that comes from the henna plant. The reddish pigment is found in the henna leaves which are dried and ground into a fine powder. The powder is used to prepare the henna paste which is then applied on the skin in intricate patterns as a form of temporary body art.
Does henna come in different colours?
Not exactly. Once the henna paste is removed, the design will turn to an orange colour which will gradually darken about 48 hours later. The final colour of the henna design will vary from a dark paprika to dark cinnamon, but this variation will always be within reddish brown tones.
(See example below).
How long does a henna design last?
A henna design will usually last an average of 15 days. This duration can be more or less depending on what part of the body the design has been applied, henna aftercare and how fast the skin naturally exfoliates. Generally, the faster the skin regenerates, the quicker the design tends to fade.
Does it hurt?
No. Henna paste is applied only on the surface of the skin. It is completely painless and it actually is a very relaxing experience.
How much does it cost?
The rate for a henna design starts at $30. The price increases according to the size and the complexity of the design you chose.
How long is a henna appointment?
