Island holiday henna
Treat yourself to the wonderful art of henna in the comfort of your villa or hotel room. If you are on holiday in St. John, you will likely be at the beach or in the water most of your days. Because henna needs to set for 4 to 12 hours, happy hour is the best time of day for you to get it done. That way, the henna paste will soak into your skin as you sleep, and ensure you a rich stain. This is a wonderful and inspiring island experience to have with your family and friends and will be remembered for years to come.
Henna is a fun addition to any party, or a reason to have a party in itself. Inspire your guests with the magical gift of the henna experience. It brings joy to the space, is a great conversation starter and is a unique party favor that guests take home with them. When the paste comes off later in the day or the next morning, they will be still be reminded of the fun they had! Available for birthday parties, bachelorette parties, baby showers and corporate events.
Adorn yourself with the ancient tradition of henna for your special day. Having yourself decorated with henna will bring more magic and beauty your wedding day while also providing some important time to slow down and reflect on this time of transition in your life. Beach weddings and henna are an amazing combination. The gorgeous natural colors of Virgin Island beaches and the earth tones of henna compliment each other so beautifully.
