My Henna Course With Uwaisa Mehndi London 2012

Meow Pussycats

I finally plucked courage and booked my Henna course. I had been lucky as my birthday fell in the same month so this was a birthday present for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my two day intensive course with Uwaisa Mehndi Specialist Asian Bridal Make-up Artist and Henna Mehndi Artist in London

I had no idea at first whether I should be taking a beginners course or the intensive course so I  wrote an email to Uwaisa and also sent some pictures of my work. Uwaisa replied very promptly and she was very informative. After looking at what I was capable of Uwaisa advised me  that I should go straight on the intensive course.

I took her advice and took this course. It was a 1 to1 course with her and was built around the days I could get to London. I felt at ease when I saw a very friendly face at the door. Uwasia had all my course sorted out as she had already sent me the itinerary. Uwasisa covered all that I needed to know about henna and much more. She taught me techniques, the different types of henna designs, how to make my own henna, glitter and gems, how to make cones how to fill them and so much more. all my questions that I had wrote down were all answered with in the first day.

If you or anyone you know is looking for a henna course then I recommend this one as I feel much more confident since the course and my designs have changed so much since then, they got much better!

Here is the link to the course.  www.uwaisamehndi.com

Henna (Mehndi) Body Art Temporary Tattoos On Celebs 2012

Meow Pussycats

Lots of people like body art and henna (Mehndi) is a the temporary way of showing off  beautiful designs. The mixture of henna and glitter is stunning.  Take a look at some of the celebs I found that have had them done. Henna tattoos don’t just look nice while you are on holiday. They look nice on special occasions, weddings, Eid festivals and especially look nice in the summer when you can show them off.

Depending on the henna paste that has been used, the colour could last for longer than two weeks, but often start to fade away with in the first week. Once the henna has been put on the skin, and the dried henna has been taken off the colour will appear very faint orange.  The henna will appear darker in the next few days.  The colour that you will get depends on what henna(Mehndi) that has been used. I have used Dulhan Henna cones that I bought on Amazon. The colour from them is a vibrant burgundy. If you have sensitive skin then a test is advised. Once the colour starts to fade you could soak in some warm salty water this will help remove most the rest of the stain.
