Henna (also known as Mehendi) is an ancient eastern art form used to decorate the hands and feet with a natural, herbal paste made from the leaves of the henna plant. The practice dates back thousands of years and is traditionally done for weddings, pregnancies, and festivals such as Diwali, Eid, and other Eastern celebrations.
Usha Raman, is New Zealand’s most popular and experienced Henna Artist.
