After talking to several henna artists in the DC area in preparation for hosting my niece’s Sangeet/engagement party I really felt like a hit the jackpot with Bhavna. Should you need any henna services done – SHE IS THE ONE!. She responded to my initial email inquiry very promptly, gave me a contact number and was just lovely to chat with – we talked for at least 30 minutes about the party I was planning in our initial conversation. My niece didn’t have a lot of experience with henna and I was concerned I would end up with an artist
who would not want to deviate from a fairly traditional Indian design or who would be upset if my niece said after an hour that she REALLY wanted the henna off of her hands. The engagement party was Memorial Day weekend but she is not getting married until August and she is not doing an Indian wedding so we didn’t
need for her to keep it on for hours.
Bhavna was perfect for us since she gives a consultation for customizing the design. It gave my niece an idea of the options available in the very warm and welcoming environment of Bhavna’s
house where we greeted with snacks and drinks like we were friends. Bhavna's work is just beautiful and she was wonderful in partnering with my niece and her fiancé in design process so they could incorporate symbols which were meaningful to them. Her final design reflected influences from her fiancé’s Jewish faith as well as Indian motifs. She was extremely responsive via email and very
flexible during the entire process - incorporating changes as the design evolved. The design she created was totally unique and reflected the faiths and experiences of both the bride and groom.
After working on the bride (and groom) at the beginning of the party Bhavna then proceeded to do roughly 25 guests! I must tell you she is really fast and everyone loved the designs! I can’t tell you how many people called me the next day to say how well their
particular design turned out and how much they enjoyed just talking to her. She also sprinkles glitter on the freshly applied henna which is a really nice touch. It was just the experience we were looking given the celebration!
I can’t wait to final another reason to use her business.
