Hear your guests' excitement... "Ooo, they're doing henna here?!" and "Let's get some henna!" Seeing their eyes light up and to watch their smile grow until they're radiating is a joyful blessing. It's why I love my job so much. Everyone leaves happy when they get henna with Island Girl. Make your event extra special with henna adornment. Your guests will thank you.
Are you looking for a henna/ mehndi artist that knows what she's doing and cares about what you want? You've come to the right place! Henna body adornment was introduced to my ancestral homeland a thousand years ago and I've had training from world-renown artists in a variety of cultural styles (Indian, Warli, Arabic, Khaleeji/ Gulf, Moroccan, etc.).
We supply a sleek, clean henna booth set up with floor-length table covers, fresh organic henna and relevant materials, professional application service, design portfolios, line control, aftercare instructions... and a pleasant personality with a smile!
I specialize in doing henna quickly without sacrificing quality, for a wide variety of events:
I'm eager to listen to your story and work with you to create gorgeous designs that sing the song of your history and new life together.
