We had a good experience with Ani. She did face painting, glittery tattoos and balloon twisting at our child's 3 year birthday party at a park. Everybody was happy. She was also good in responding right away if I had any questions before the party. Would recommend. Value for the money.

I asked Shannon to do henna tattoos for a "Surprise Girls Only Party" for my moms 40th birthday and she didn't disappoint. All the woman who attended the party and wanted a tattoo were very pleased and excited to have something new and non permanent on their bodies. Shannon is so sweet, kind, and straight forward. I only paid her for three hours and she insisted on coming early to set up and get started on people who came right away, as well as, staying later to make sure everyone who wanted one got one. Henna art is a great party favor and/or activity for all ages and Shannon is definitely the one to go to.

For my daughter’s 12th birthday, Amulya did henna tattoos for the kids and adult guests. Everyone was fascinated on how fast Amulya worked in creating different designs for everyone. Thanks for making our first henna tattoo experience a delightful one!

Silvana was very professional and quick to respond to emails. She answered all my questions promptly and told me everything I needed to know. The session lasted a couple of hours and she made the experience very comfortable. She is very kind and it was nice to have such a relaxing moment before my wedding. The henna design was also very beautiful--exactly what I had expected!

She is awesome, it was a large party, and she did not stop to rest although her arm was tired as I noticed. She was doing face painting and her artistic talents are super!! She was right on time and had all her gear with her to do the job. Extremely easy to work with. I would give her 10 stars Peter Muhhawieh you could pass this review to anyone who wants to hire her.

Shelley Capovilla has been hired at a few wineries I've attended. The kids love having their face painted by her because each face is a new canvas and each painting an original work of art. Since she takes her time and paints amazing works of art, the line sometimes can get a little long, but it's well worth the wait. If your kids (or adults) like face painting or henna tattoos, they'll love Shelley's-Style.com/

Alapi was awesome! She is very sweet and was attentive to my request as she customized the henna art to my liking making it truly her own. She is very talented and reasonably priced! She took her time to perfect her designs but still used the time efficiently. Her products are all natural which was very important for me as I am with child (8mos) and wanting to try henna tattoo for my pregnancy photos. She is personable and worked in my home effectively to provide a comfortable setting and atmosphere. I even went out later in the day and got several compliments on the henna creations. Simply lovely! I am incredibly happy with my decision to hire Alapi and I will surely use her for future hire as well as referring her to others. Thank you Alapi!!!

About

We specialize in making our brides look and feel their best on their big day. We have been doing henna for parties and events for 10 years. Our expertise is in designing exquisite and personalized henna designs. We develop our henna in-house with 100% pure and organic henna powder and aromatherapy grade essential oils which guarantees the deepest mehndi color. We always aim to provide you with the highest value possible in our henna services. History Established in 2012 Henna has always been a fascinating medium of art and expression to me and ever since I was a child I loved drawing with henna on myself and everyone around me. As my passion and expertise has grown I have been able to bring in some elements of sustainability and decided to create a brand that has a positive impact on the environment. I love the organic and natural origins of henna and wish to sustain that in the products I use, unlike the chemical laden products found in the main stream market. It takes years of practice and training to become a seasoned and experienced henna artist who has perfected their henna in color quality while avoiding dyes and chemicals. I wish to bring that to you as a henna artist.
