Summer is your perfect time for henna! Henna is the naturalista’s body adornment of choice. Temporal, yet steeped in ancient tradition and purely natural, made by hand from the leaves of the henna plant and infused with artistic skills. Purely natural henna stains last 7-10 days; as your skin exfoliates, your henna will gradually fade away completely. Henna stains your hands and feet the best, your henna stains will be lighter elsewhere.

I hope to see you soon for some summer henna!

Naturalista wedding henna

This week I drove about 20 minutes into the east to henna a naturalista bride. The countryside was golden and beautiful, dotted with buttes, old oaks and undulating hills.

The happy couple will be married in a most beautiful place on earth. Yosemite. I think that says it all. She chose a naturalistic style that suited her whole essence and I feel it was a perfect match for her. Her henna wraps around her wrist curling into a sunburst and her feet are blooming with a similiar floral pattern found on her hands. Henna inspired by nature, steeped in enduring wedding traditions. What an honor to be called upon in these happy occassions.

A new henna season and new shapes and forms emerge in the henna designs. Design elements added to muscle memory, new patterns and concepts inspire new work and spins on some older work. Henna downtown, on the street for the Thursday Night Market, 6-9 pm Chico, California.
