Henna tattoos, or mehndi, are created with a temporary dye paste made from the crushed leaves and twigs of the henna plant. The paste is applied to the skin, and when dried, the reddish brown dye will last up to a month -- depending on your skin, the location of the design, and how frequently the area is washed.
Popular in India and many Arabic cultures, these intricate designs are generally reserved for special events and celebrations. In India, henna tattoos are an important part of wedding ceremonies. In recent years, thanks to celebrities like Madonna, and Rihanna, henna tattoos are gaining popularity in the West as an alternative to more permanent ink tattoos.
- Prices start at $8.00. The size, intricacy, and location of the design will determine the cost of your tattoo. Click here to request more information about henna tattoo services at a location near you!

Throw a Henna Party
A mehndi or henna party is a traditional part of Indian and Muslim wedding ceremonies. The night before the wedding the entire bridal party is adorned with beautiful henna tattoos on their hands, arms, feet, and legs. Typically the bride (as the guest of honor) gets the most detailed and intricate tattoo. She must sit very still while the designs are applied and as they dry. (They can take 3 - 6 hours to set). Her friends usually entertain her with singing and dancing to pass the time and celebrate the upcoming change in her life.
We want to provide a similar offering to our Salon Thread customers looking for a unique alternative for a bridal shower or graduation party.
Henna parties are also a great way to celebrate birthdays, bat mitzvahs, quinceaneras -- basically any special event or occasion. Parties can be hosted in the comfort of your home, or after hours in select salon locations.
- Pricing will be determined by the location of your party, and then number of people attending. A 50% deposit, is required at the time you schedule your party, and the balance is due on the day of your event.
There is a 72-hour cancellation fee for all confirmed parties. Parties cancelled within this time frame will receive a FULL refund of their deposit
