    The best of the best!!
    She was amazing! Very sweet, and engaging with all the girls. She was very quick and free styled all designs. She completed 12 tattoos in 40 minutes, then went back around for add ons, for us to take advantage of the entire hour. I would certainly book her again!

    Amazing experience!
    I cannot speak highly enough about Shazia and her art! She was amazing! So fun, relatable, conversant, and a real pleasure to be around. Not to mention she was with a bunch of rambunctious midwives! Her art work was amazing! We asked her to do a tree of life, which she had never done, and she made the most beautiful and each unique trees. She's amazing! Not to mention extremely affordable! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! We already are planning on booking her again in May. A WONDERFUL experience!!!

    Jessica, it was an absolute honor meeting you and your wonderful friends and colleagues. I had an amazing time doing your henna and just generally being a part of what you do! I would actually like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for everything that you do for moms and future moms. What a beautiful role you play in the lives of our children- Thank you for your service!

    Beautiful Henna Design and Color!
    Shazia is amazing. She is a pro through and through- She came over on time and even though it would take hours into the night, she patiently henna'd my hands and feet. She takes great pride in her work and it can be seen in the delicate and neat lines of henna. She has a unique perspective and her designs look GORGEOUS! The color of my Henna was also AMAZING. I had Henna done Late Thursday night (2 am!) and by Saturday morning it was a gorgeous deep maroon. On top of it all, she is lovely to work with and i had so much fun talking to her as she did my henna! I've already recommended her to everyone I know!

    Shazia went above and beyond all expectations I had of Just Henna! I asked her to do my event and thought that she would do nothing more than just a simple 2 minute design on each guest who choose to get henna done. This would have been perfectly fine, but Shazia didn't do just that. If you are looking for a henna artist for any reason at all, look no farther. She communicated with me up until the event and was very clear in discussing all the details of her service to me. When she arrived, she set up very quickly and got right to work. She greeted each guest with a smile, and happily did a beautiful, intricate, and complex design for every single person in just a few minutes - including the kids! She kindly listened to every request and did not make any guest feel rushed at all. Her henna left a beautiful stain on everyone and every guest was overjoyed with their henna. It was very clear that her henna mix is made with care and that she respects her art. I am so happy with the service she provided and so are all the guests who were at our party. Thank you, Shazia! I will definitely use your services again.

    I recently held a public event to expose the community to the Arab culture and wanted to incorporate the art of henna into the experience. Shazia traveled to my party with this wonderful henna she had handmade (it smelled soooo good rather than stinky kind I'm used to), and her art style was a perfect fit for the event. The smiles on the kids' faces as they were having their hands done were priceless. And she was so good and patient with all of them. Should I get the chance to host another event like this one, I'd hire her all over again. :) Thank you, Shazia!

    I had so much fun getting my mehndi done by Shazia! It was an amazing experience, she is such a talented henna artist! In addition, she is just so wonderful and sweet to be around! I could not have asked for a better experience working with someone on such a crucial part of my wedding. Not only did she do my bridal henna, she was also the artist at my mehndi party. She must have done maybe 50 or more hands at the mehndi party, each design better than the last! All of my guests were incredibly impressed as well as super happy with the result of their henna design AND perfect color! I highly recommend her for any event! She is truly a wonderful person to work with and oh so sweet! :)

    The bridal henna Shazia did for me was just amazing. Her and I spoke about a week before and she asked me if there was anything specific I wanted. I loved how friendly and genuine she came off during our first conversation and it only got better from there. I also appreciated her attention to my likes and dislikes, that was something I had no experienced with previous henna professionals. She did a beautiful job and doesn’t make it awkward; a complete stranger coming to your house and hanging out with you for many hours (depending how much henna you want). We chatted the whole time, laughed and really got to know one another! We had an evening appointment so I went to bed with my henna on (but dried) and I was taken back at how dark it was the next morning. I removed it after having it on for 6 hours and in the morning it was breathtaking. Later that evening my inlaws told me “the darker your henna is, the deeper the love your husband has for you.” I was happy to hear that! All of my husbands family were extremely impressed with the henna's darkness and design. Shazia is an extremely talented woman. I will be coming back to her at every possible opportunity. I highly recommend her work to anyone and everyone for any occasion! Her prices are very good and her work is marvelous!

    Shazia arrived on time, quickly set up her area to be prepared for our guests to arrive. She was warm and friendly and she had a design book to choose from that was helpful to see her work. She was also able to free hand a design upon request. Everyone was very pleased with her work. I would highly recommend her services. Hope to be able to use her in the future.

I've had people stop me several times to compliment my henna tattoo some have asked for her contact information to hire. I will definitely hire Just Henna again!

    I know I'm a bit late but I wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to Shazia Jalil for making my henna the most breathtaking view of my wedding! It was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! And everybody kept commenting on the intricacy & pattern of the work! Before you, Shazia, I had given up on henna artists altogether, thinking I just wasn't meant for good mehndi. But you made me realize there are genuine and talented artists out there who put their heart & soul in what they do and create gorgeous work. Not only are you an amazing artist, but you are a sincere and humble person who truly wants to make her clients happy. I can't think of another person I'd want to sit hours for to do my henna! I'm so glad I got to see you this weekend & I wish you all the best! Inshallah may the Lord increase your talent and allow you to flourish and continue to create such beauty! :)

  • Shruti G. Nov 11, 2015
    I used Just Henna for my bridal henna and henna party and was so happy that I did. Shazia was always so professional and responsive - always emailing me back with my questions within 24 hours. Her designs were beautiful and intricate- and most of all, she seems to love what she does. One of the things we loved and set her apart from some of the others in the area was that she came by to do a trial to see how we liked her henna and the stain well before our event- and did a trial on both my mom and myself. She truly went above and beyond to help us have a great event and I will be recommending her to all of our friends and family for their future events.

    Shazia, was awesome. She provided henna tattoos for a 14 year olds birthday party. The girls loved the tattoos. I even asked Shazia if she could do gifts for them so she got little jewelry boxes and decorated them. The girls loved them. Shazia is very personable and talks to you while she is doing the tattoo. I would highly recommended her.

    She does an amazing job with the henna. Not only is she very detailed with the designs, she is also very professional. Furthermore, I love that she makes the henna so I know exactly where it comes from and does not contain extra chemicals (so no burns or reactions).

  • Samia B. Sep 15, 2015
    I would give her more stars if it was possible. I saw Shazia at a fair and immediately her designs and her extreme attention to the details on her work caught my eye. There were three other henna stalls but i did not even look anywhere else. Shazia is an amazing girl with all smiles and great courteous behavior. She will work from early morning till late at night and you would not hear her complaining. She pays attention to your needs. Although her own designs are great but my girls brought their own designs and she copied them in no time with 100% accuracy. Great personality. Great work... What more would you want?! .....wait... You'll want Great henna. I live in Fairfax Va and Shazia has her business setup is MD. And yet I have stopped buying hand burning, ugly chemical containing henna from local grocery stores. The trip that I make to see her, to get her henna is totally worth my time and money. Her henna is all natural. Chemical free. Smells so good...your hand stays close to your nose. ( make sure you don't do that while sleeping :). When you wash it off. It's beautiful orange color which gradually becomes beautiful dark maroon and stays there for atleast 7- 10 days. ( mine stayed for 10 days). For all the henna lovers out there...this is your place. She is flexible to adjust according to your wishes. Time. Henna. Money. Everything. I hope and pray that her business flourishes and we see henna like it should be.

    Shazia was an absolute delight to work with and the children (all ages) loved her! The henna designs she created were truly perfect and so intricate too- and was the hit at the school festival! In fact, many parents also complemented Shazia's work and her attitude. We had a big rainfall come through mid-way through the carnival and this did not impact Shazia one bit! She kept working away and was beyond gracious the entire time. I found her to be so impressive on all levels-- quality of work, efficiency with lines and kids, amazing personality/ attitude and so pleasant, and punctual. I already asked her if she would do this again because it was truly a big success.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I believe that henna is an art that should be enjoyed by everyone and, on that basis, I have a pricing system that is based on individual needs of a customer. I aim to be flexible and accommodate all budgets.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I love new customers, especially customers who have not been exposed to natural henna in the past. I always explain what henna is, and the ingredients in my henna paste. I then go through my design portfolio with the customer and give them an opportunity to choose from my previous work or they can allow me to come up with a new and more personalized design. After applying the henna, the customer can choose to decorate their design with glitter or gems if he/she so wishes. I finish the henna application process with the homemade natural aftercare that protects the henna paste from falling off too quickly. This ensures that the customer enjoys their henna design for as long as possible.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
While a major part of my training and experience in henna involves self-teaching and self-training, I have attended a number of conferences to learn from professionals who have been in the industry for 10+ years. This has helped me expand upon and develop new and existing skills. I have continued to stay in touch with a number of the highly skilled professionals who regularly provide feedback on my work, which helps me improve each time I apply a henna design.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always check the quality of the work done by the artist and ask as many questions as you like until you feel comfortable with the person you are hiring.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I believe in providing a fun service but in a safe manner. Therefore I believe it is important to educate the general public about safe henna practices. It is always important to ask your henna artist for the ingredients in the paste they are using on you. Not just the general ingredients that go in henna. Always disclose any skin conditions or sensitivities you may have to the artist prior to booking him/her so he/she can determine the best ingredients to use when mixing the henna paste for your appointment.
