There’s no question about it, henna is back in a major way. Thanks to the rise of henna artists like Azra Khamissa, the age-old tradition has gotten a timely upgrade.
What was once an art form dominated by paisley and floral patterns has taken a new geometric turn. They’re still as intricate as ever though, but the designs are no longer reserved for special occasions like weddings and Eid.
With henna hitting the mainstream in recent years, it’s now sported by women across the Middle East and North Africa on a day-to-day basis.
Make the most of your time this Ramadan and dive into the henna tradition with one of these modern designs.
