Mehndi Night

On Thursday night, we had a night of mehndi, designs on the hands and feet using henna. ISAC staff member, Farooq, invited his daughter’s friend who is a trained menhdi artist to the yellow house. She brought her books of designs and allowed each person to pick out a design for their hands and/or feet. She is busy this time of year, doing henna for weddings, as well as other for various festivals. She works quickly and is very talented.. We all loved the henna designs that she did for us.
