The after pictures of Henna from the henna Class. Here is the look at how the henna turned out after 12-14 hours of application. I am sure Henna would turn even darker in the next 24 hours.

Few pictures from Henna done this weekend

I had a sweet sixteen party in New town PA. The girls were very much interested in Henna. The small room assigned for Henna was full the entire time. I did henna non-stop for about 2 hours and 10 minutes. I enjoyed listening to all the girls chatter and doing Henna on them. I did do a bracelet wrap, same design over for 6 times! I managed to take pictures of about 5-6 designs from about 25 I did.
After that I had a Id Party In Blue bell PA. Very Nice people and a good party. Henna was for little girls and they all wanted to get Henna. Here Too I just took 4-5 pictures out of many Henna designs I had done in the 1 hour I was there. The little girls did not want to wait to take pictures!
