August sunsets and the orange in our henna
There is something about August sunsets that resonates so deeply with our OG brown henna. The orange mark on the skin, just after peeling off fresh henna is so reminiscent of the golden sun on these long summer nights.
Growing up, August would be full of family weddings, relatives all getting together and the smell of mehndi! The smell of our range is much different to what it was when I was growing up (thankfully!) but I do remember it distinctly and its something that is imprinted in me forever.
Henna was actually used centuries ago to cool the skin down, and was rubbed on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. It became decorative over the years and the colour significance became a symbol of celebration. First it was applied with the fingers, over the years it has been applied with syringes, cocktail sticks, cotton buds and now we have the henna cones that give great precision and are similar to using a pencil!
The trends of henna have changed over the years drastically, with big bold colour blocks being applied years ago, then moving onto thin and intricate floral patterns that we see on today’s brides. There is now a great mix off both that we see and it is so lovely to see the traditional designs with a modern twist.
For as long as I can remember I have been on a mission to make henna accessible to everyone. Of course the beauty of the art was first on my list to share with everyone, but beyond that it is the community, the girly time, the fun and bonds! When we started as a service in Selfridges, we had so many bookings for Hen nights, and it clicked! This cultural tradition was now not just an Indian thing anymore, but was being appreciated by all cultures and I was alllllll for it!
