All Things Henna

The Basics

Private Appointment Bookings
are now open.

Request form found below.

Henna is a paste that leaves a


on the top layer of skin

that lasts 5-14 days.


​​​​Real, safe, 100% natural henna is green in powder form,

and brown when it is a paste. 

Natural henna stains range from

light reddish brown to deep mahogany brown. 

Henna leaves a transparent stain that sits on the skin, so it works well on all skin tones. 


Natural paste is dark brown

when it dries on the skin,

not ever, ever black.

*****see FAQ for more info*****

Henna paste is draped in designs and patterns

and then dries on the skin. 

After sitting on the skin for 2-12 hours, the paste can be removed (by scraping)

and water should be avoided for 24 hours. 

Henna stains start as a bright yellow color and develop and deepen (oxidize) in 36-48 hours.

​​​​Henna is made of fresh henna powder, sugar, distilled water or lemon juice, and essential oils. 

Because of a lack in research relating to the long-term effects of essential oils,

henna is not recommended for young children, 

especially since certain allergies have not had a chance to reveal themselves at a young age.

Thanks for submitting!

I am not currently booking henna events due to ongoing health issues.

Bridal applications are currently only available at my local studio in Downtown Birmingham, AL, for the same reason.

Thank you for your understanding and compassion on this matter.
