Henna is an ancient, mostly feminine, tradition from India, Africa and the Middle East. Many ceremonies have developed around the painting of henna on the skin. Special occasions are accented with the tradition of mehndi, weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and more. Henna body art is more than painting a pretty design on your skin; it serves as a time to relax, slow down and feel beautiful. It is also a time for women to gather together to support each other in a sacred way.
Faery Hair is a brand new phenomenon! A tiny strand of hair tinsel is affixed near the root of one strand of your hair and adds color and sparkle. Lasts for weeks, or even months if the faeries are smiling on you!
