Henna Me Beautiful Hand Paints Elaborate Designs for All Types of Events

Described as an "ephemeral henna body art service," Henna Me Beautiful is a Santa Barbara, CA henna tattooing business. Owner Afshan Khan is also a henna artist who grew up watching her mom doing henna. It started as an artistic hobby for Khan and morphed into a full business 15 years later.

"I found myself offering henna to anyone and everyone," Khan said. "I did a lot of research and found that many henna artists around the world had successful businesses and, not only that, but were very talented henna artists."

Khan uses an all-natural henna paint that dries quickly and leaves a dark stain on the skin. The art is hand drawn on the skin by Khan and the other henna artists that she employs. Henna Me Beautiful can be hired for parties, events and even perform bridal hennas. For those who opt for bridal henna, their appointment should be made two to three days prior to the wedding to achieve the best stain.

Henna Me Beautiful also joined in on a popular trend, henna crowns. This service is especially for those going through chemotherapy treatments. The head is decorated with a beautiful henna design, giving patients something to feel good about as they go through treatment.

"Henna crowns are becoming very popular with cancer patients all around the world," Khan said. "When I heard about other henna artists offering this service, I wanted to offer it as well?I decided that going through cancer is hard enough as it is and I want to do what I can to help my community and so I offer henna crowns for free."

Whether it be a bridal shower, wedding, birthday party, quincinera or corporate event, Khan and her team strive to give each client the best henna experience possible. She said henna's popularity is only growing and people are finding reasons to get the temporary tattoos.

"If my clients aren't happy, I'm not happy," Khan said. "I make it my priority to do my very best to exceed my clients' expectations. I make an effort to be present and give my clients all of my attention during our time together."
