Enjoy a design that is created just for you, and that adds meaning to your journey into motherhood. You deserve to pamper yourself, put your feet up, and let the unfolding of a henna design make you feel amazing and special

Henna bellies usually take 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.

There are a few different ways to plan your maternity henna application:

In combination with a baby shower:

  • have the artist arrive ahead of the guests to get started on the mom-to-be, and when finished with the belly design we can get started on the guests. Recommended.

  • have the henna applied during the party with the guests watching, and then we can start on the guests. 

For a private appointment:

  • we can apply a henna on the belly as well as on the hands and feet of the mom-to-be.

  • have a few friends in attendance to help keep the mom-to-be company and offer them some henna after you are finished.​​

"Quin made my first Henna experience thoroughly enjoyable! I am so happy with the Henna design she had done on my belly. She was always very patient, and she really knew how to make her customer feel comfortable." ~ Christa
