Here’s to June 2014

Mehndhi Services

June 2014, One crazy memorable month.

Along with all of the weddings and engagement sessions booked, Alisha Khan is also booking up for Henna (mehndi) services all over the Okanagan and Lower Mainland. We’ll be adding combined henna and photography services for those cultural weddings for in and out of town clients. A special rate is added for both services and can be used during the wedding time. A lot of weddings in the Okanagan also pursue henna tattoos for the bridal shower and/or bachelorette party which can be an additional service.

Henna is a dye prepared from a plant and then applied to the hands and feet aw the art of temporary tattooing. Henna has been using to dye ski, hair, fingernails, toes and even silk, wool and leather. Henna can be purchased in its dry form, which can be mixed with lemon juice, strong black and various oils such as eucalyptus, cajeput, tea tree or lavender. Henna can be applied with many different and traditional ways, including a cone, syringe or jac bottles. Back when I was a kid, it was applied in circles with your hands and dotted with tooth picks. A light stain is left on the skin after the paste is removed and darkens over 48 hours. A lot of tales are told that prior to the henna drying, applying a lemon juice and sugar concoction dabbed on the henna will allow the henna to last longer and darker. If you are considering a tattoo and want to see what it’ll look like, having a henna tattoo in the spot will you give you an idea and only lasts for about 10 days.

Be sure to check out our Henna Gallery page for details and prices. All prices are subject to size and complexity, We’ll be happy to sit with you over a consultation. All bridal packages include a design consultation.
