Modernist Henna Designs to Try While in Quarantine

Forget a manicure…


There’s no question about it, henna is back in a major way. Thanks to the rise of henna artists like Azra Khamissi, 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. And what better time to experiment with the craft than during a pandemic that has left all of us confined in our homes for an undetermined amount of days? 

Make the most of your time in quarantine and dive into the henna tradition with one of these modern designs.
