Amina is a Henna artist serving Rhode Island & Massachusetts. Available for events, parties and also accept private appointments.
Henna has been used for hundreds of years. The leaves of the henna plant are dried and powdered to be mixed into a paste which is used to dye the skin, hair, nails and even fabric. Traditionally henna is used on the hand and feet and gives a reddish/brown colour, which lasts between 1-3 weeks. It is completely natural. Mehndi is the Hindi word used to describe henna. Mehndi is used in many parts of the world from India, Pakistan, and Middle East to North Africa and now here in the West. Mehndi is not only seen at weddings but also on religious occasions like Eid, Diwali, or could be used as one desires. Let's say it doesn't have to be any occasion for one to have some cool stuff on their hands or anywhere on their body. After all it's a painless form of art!
