1. Where are you based?
I started doing henna several years ago in the UK and moved to Zurich in July 2015. I can take bookings in UK and Switzerland as well as international bookings.
2. What are your prices?
Unlike many other artists, I do not have a set price list by strip or hand and neither do I have pre-defined Silver, Gold or Platinum packages. I believe that every customer is unique and have their own bespoke requirements. As such it is important for me to understand what the client's needs are first and then provide a price.
3. What are the steps in the booking process?
I start with an initial "no obligation" consultation which is free and try to get a good understanding of when is your event, the nature of the event and what designs (if any) you have in mind. Based on that I will then provide a price. Should you wish to go ahead, then an initial deposit of 20% is required to book the event in the diary.
4. Once booked, can I make changes/cancel the booking?
In order to book and confirm your event I take 20% deposit, which is non-refundable if you decide to cancel for any reason. Date changes can and will be accommodated provided the new slot (date & time) is available.
5. How can I make sure the henna lasts as long as possible?
The colour is at its best between 24-48 hours, where it will go from a pale to dark orange and gradually darken due to oxidation. The final colour is reddish-brown and can last anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks depending on where it is applied on the body and quality and type of henna used. The outcome of the henna also depends on your blood circulation, with strong circulation giving darker results.
Once the henna paste has dried, the following steps can be taken to get the best results:-
try to avoid (or minimise as much as possible) contact with water for at least 6 - 8 hours
moisturise with natural oils such as Eucalyptus, Clove, Olive or Coconut
