So my friend is good at applying mehndi but always hesitant to share it, and here I took the opportunity by taking her permission to share pictures with everyone <3

INTERVIEW

How did you establish yourself in the Western market?

I don’t really think I have actually established in the western market just yet, I’m working with majority Pakistani and Indian clients and very rarely do I get involved with western functions who need henna art services. Maybe when I expand more I can be recognised in the western market too

What has been the most challenging henna/mehndi art job for you?

The most challenging mehndi art for me is probably body art using body paints as the henna doesn’t dry so its hard for the model who I use for photoshoots and also difficult for me as the paint remains damp and I have to use intricate patterns in difficult to reach areas.

How long does it usually take to do a design on someone? For example, the bridals with full hands and foot?

The most common bridal package is the intricate package which is henna up to elbows and on the legs and feet too, this would usually take me about three hours in total

How long do the designs last of your natural heena?

My henna patterns could last between 2-3 weeks, depends on different people

Do you wear mehndi designs yourself or do you consider this really just for special occasions?

I do randomly wear henna patterns on my hands, I find henna very elegant and love adorning my hands in new patterns.

Are you into other heena body art like heena crown?

Henna is really meant for feet and hands with the exception of arms and legs, I don’t really like it anywhere else

If someone does do-it-yourself mehndi art, do you have any tips for him or her? Are there any precautions they should take?

If they do the henna themselves then the best thing to do is make sure they have a good henna cones with a good slim tip and consistent flow

You are mehndi artist, makeup artist, canvas artist and now also in mehndi cake baking? How do you manage your time?

I like to balance everything, I don’t always have bookings on a daily basis so I do get time to myself. As for the henna art on products and gifts I can usually complete them before I go to bed.

You take any off days or you keep yourself busy all the time in your hobby?

Yes I do take some days off where I don’t do anything work related, however I have a massive to do list so it seems there’s always something to do even on a day off

You are also makeup artist? What products do you like to use?

Yes I also do makeup, the products I use are mainly Mac with a a few others like urban decay and Kryolon

What do you look forward to doing in the future?

I look forward to opening a training academy to teach students the art of henna

Any new projects on the horizon? (If not secret)

My new project includes stripes and henna art

Any Suggestions for your readers and upcoming artists?

Just never give up in whatever you do and keep trying :-)

Shaded Mehndi

Posted on Updated on

Are you fan of shaded mehndi, it is very in nowadays and I love them. It can be applied by using two different shades and other trick that artists use and don’t tell is that they divide heena in two portions, and mix water in one portion that they use for shading purpose, adding water lightens the shade of heena :-)

Have a look at these few sample shaded mehndi designs by different artists
