Henna is no longer strange to tourists from all over, coming to Middle Eastern countries such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi and South Asia such as India, Pakistan or a little further to Europe, Türkiye.

Henna is being spread more and more widely around the world.

Ancient murals discovered during excavations at the Akrotiri site on Santorini Island, Greece (destroyed by a volcano in 1627 BC) show images of women wearing makeup.

No one knows for sure when henna was used to decorate the body.

Henna was once used to decorate and adorn the body for important occasions such as ceremonies and religious offerings.

Henna is no longer a makeup style for special occasions, but now you can apply it whenever you like.

Do you wonder who created this art?

Over time, no one can confirm whether the formula and development process of henna was created by one or more people and whether it was passed down through generations according to the original.

Currently, there are many tools for drawing henna, including cone-shaped molds that resemble writing tools on birthday cakes.

Initially the drawing will be orange then gradually turn black over the next few days.

Some traces at archaeological sites and research documents show that henna was used as a form of makeup for women before meeting their husbands three thousand years ago.

Nowadays henna does not necessarily appear in important occasions or in traditional ways.

The use of henna in decoration also applies to pets such as horses and donkeys.

A henna artist is like an artist and can freely create and express his or her ideas.

The trend of using henna called bridal mehndi (popular in Pakistan and India) is spreading and becoming a typical beauty method of Middle Eastern and South Asian women.
