Having henna applied on your hands and feet is very common in the Middle East.

Traditionally brides will have henna applied as part of the wedding preparations and some might organize a henna party to for others to join in the celebrations and also have henna applied.

However it is very common for women to also have henna done for Eid and/or weddings some women simply apply it because they love having their hands/feet decorated.

Applying Henna

Henna is normally applied by a henna artist, in Oman there are many places to have henna applied.

There are 2 ways to have henna applied either by a henna artist or using henna stencils or stickers.

Back in 2012 I uploaded a similar video showing how henna can be applied using stencils but silly me I forgot to show the end result. I must admit that I didn’t thing that it would reach a million views ma sha Allah (yup, it is my most watched video).

The stencils are easily available in Oman they can be bought at small supermarkets, Al Ghafoor and/or Al Hadhramy. Sadly I am unable to find where to purchase henna stencils online so if any of you know of a site please leave me a comment below so I can share it.

Here are some pictures of the henna stencils/stickers
