Book Best South Asian Wedding Henna Artists in San Francisco at Pyaari Weddings

‘Mehndi Night’ has always been notable for the Bride and groom. The fun of applying henna with family and friends, enjoying dance performances by the bridesmaids and cousins, and having delightful food with exotic drinks makes it the best memory for the couple to cherish forever. More than henna, it's the designs that make the brides curious for this special night in comparison to the groom.

The henna design that the bride applies are not just ordinary, they are logically prepared and planned by the bride with the help of an expert henna artist. The brides love to give their henna a theme or story to share with their loved ones. They carve everything from their first meeting place to the proposed place to their long-distance journey. Also, it is no longer a bride's thing, the groom and his family also seek professional henna artists. Although the groom's henna designs are (mostly) very minimal, they do choose what they want on their hands along with their partner's name or any other element in it. 

Latest Trends in Bridal Henna Designs

The trends in henna designs are constantly upgrading with time. With the bold strokes, minimal patterns, shading, and outlining of the design, the henna designs have touched new benchmarks. They have surpassed what earlier was only common with all the brides. Beginning with green henna and a few basic patterns and motifs like leaves, flowers, and moon, now we see more colors and designs with endless perfection and finesse. But for all these perfect elements in henna, the henna artists have to go through several preparations.

The preparation of the henna paste, cones, and some extra things in case of emergency. The authenticity of the paste also matters for the final print of the henna design and its color. 

1. Indian Mehndi Design

The reason why we call an Indian wedding a ‘big fat wedding’ is the incorporation of various elements from music to decor to cuisines to venues to colorful ceremonies. We see everything in countless ways and styles, and so in the Mehndi designs. From single trails on the back and front of the hands to full coverage of the hands on both sides, with bride-groom portraits, their love journey, pets, the entire Barat, the city they met, landmarks of proposal place, and various other auspicious artwork depicting a marriage ceremony, Indian mehndi style always has had everything unique to offer and roots attached to it. You can find bold to thin, heavy to minimal everything in Indian mehndi designs.

2. Pakistani Mehndi Design

Although one might say that Indian and Pakistani designs are similar looks-wise as both represent more about their culture and traditions. But the Pakistani designs are usually intricate to apply and the outlines are bolder in appearance. The design includes a moon with henna-tipped fingers, floral artwork, paisleys, domes, more leaves, and in many cases, doors of mosques. They look pretty and traditional, both in minimal and embellished looks.

3. Arabic Mehndi Design

Originating in the Gulf countries, Arabic henna designs are unique in style with thick strokes and negative spaces. This type of mehndi involves a mix of floral motifs and paisley patterns. The shape and sizes of vines are also very common and have a certain amount of royalty and elegance attached to them. The best part is that they are minimal and take less time than heavy henna designs.

4. White Henna Design

This is the new style of henna where the artist paints the hands with white adhesive glue mixed in white paint. The paste is prepared and poured into a tube to apply to the hands of the brides or guests attending the wedding. The white henna is not like regular henna but is a lot easy to use. The best part is that it is less time-consuming and dries out in a few minutes.

5. Red Henna Design

Red henna is quite popular in Native America, Asia, and Australia. This henna is made from a henna tree called Lawsonia Inermis. They are the source of reddish brown dye also used for body paint or art and in henna designs as well. The designs in red henna are very chic and minimal that any bride can choose for her wedding day or any special event.

Prices of Henna Artists in San Francisco

As we are aware that all the henna artists have their own rate list depending on their designs and length. For example, the rate of minimal henna would be different from bridal henna, the rate of Arabic or half arms would be different from full arms, the customized design could cost more than the regular designs, and so on. In San Francisco, the basic charges are from $100 to 300 per hour. But you can ask your artists the final costs after finalizing everything like your designs, the on-location service, other helping hands for the family and guests, and concessions (if it is possible at all).
