And it's back!

Artist Name: Brandy Hampton/Henna by brandy

She has been working with henna for 10+ years now



So what is Henna?

Henna is a plant actually. The leaves are dried and crushed up into powder. Oil and lemon juice is used to turn the powder into a paste which is applied to the skin like puff paint. Once applied the paste will dry up and flake off. The stain from the henna will be bright orange in color and will darken into a rich brown within 24 hrs. Henna, or mehndi, is 100% safe and natural! Fun for parties of all types!

What is your favorite henna designs? Feet? Arms?

My FAVORITE is applying henna to a beautiful pregnant belly! I had henna done during both of my pregnancies and it's just so special♥



How did you get started with henna?

I got into the henna business when i was a senior in high school. A good friend of mine asked me one day in art class if I would like to apply for a job @ the henna shop she worked @. I LOVED it and have been creating beautiful henna designs ever since!



Where do you get your inspiration?

Everything is an ispiration! lines, colors, people, nature...art is everywhere!


And your favorite ice cream?

  2. Yeah her work is pretty great!

    She used to live on Maui but moved to Honolulu recently. That's one of the junk things (probably the only junk thing) about living in Hawaii- our state is separated by water!
