Henna Summer for Chico, California 2012

It’s that time for sandals, flip flops and bare feet in the creek….which also means you should look into getting some henna for your feet! For casual henna, many people choose their feet over their hands as it does have a tendency to last abit longer than henna on your hands. Check out how awesome an ancient, yet modernly inspired cosmetic can transform your feet into walking beauty. Next, email me for your appointment, One Mile in Bidwell park is my personal favorite place for henna meet ups. There are so many styles of henna design, what do you fancy?
