Tips on Henna Body Art by Pritee Shah, Mehendi Styling

  1. Traditional designs: Typical Indian designs for brides are peacocks, paisleys, and lots of intricate detail.

  2. Details: Minute details give patterns an ethnic look.

  3. Clean look: I make sure to leave gaps that make the design visible and clear.

  4. Color: It's important to enhance the color of the mehndi so that it complements the skin.

  5. Imagination: I'll incorporate an Arabic or a modern style, which is based more on artistry and imagination.
