WELCOME TO HENNA SALON IN UAE

Khaleejia said:
This is very famous and nice place where men are not allowed, but women can enjoy their time beautifying her self with a beautiful henna patterns on their hands or feet.

i love this place and i love henna. Henna decoration is an old tradition for women in the middle-east,north Africa, and Asia. while mostly henna is applied for wedding, in khaleeji (Gulf) countries henna is everyday wear like women on the west care about their nails' design visit beauty-salons every week women on the East with the same casualty visit henna-saloons (once or twice per monce or month and half-depends on how fast henna washes off).
Interior of the henna saloons in the emirates are very oriental simple and nice: cushions on the floor, pictures of examples for henna design are on the walls, and very friendly atmosphere where you can relax, take off your niqab or even hijab because never men enter. Windows are painted to be not seen-through. from outside you can recognize henna saloon among a huge amount of different shops by big pictures of women or hands decorated with henna. Yeah, i must add that its always very funny when you're trying to find the door to enter the salon running along the postered wall checking everything that can be a door-handle 'cause of outside decoration that usually hides any difference between a door and windows:)
About men: In case men need to communicate with stuff to buy henna tubes or for other reasons (call for his woman) they can do it trough a small window that opens after they knock on it or ring a special door-bell.
Prices for every saloon are different but in average its about 100 dirham to cover your both sides of hands with a beautiful design for every hand it will be different but you can choose from the examples which you like or trust to the henna-designer expert:) she knows her work. Mainly they are from India, Pakistan  and some other neighboring countries.
Photo bellow: Henna designer demonstrate her previous works to help in choosing design from every available source 

Prices for feet about 50-70  dirham for a foot and 30-60 for hand. After applying henna u will need to wait about 15 min to 1 hour (you can feel free to stay the all needed time inside the salon and chatting with other women) before you can remove it or better to keep it as long as you can and can remove it later home. as long as you keep it on your hand then darker your picture will be. remove it gently with a tissue when henna will get dry. There is no such a quiet and feminine atmosphere that will make you feel as much relaxed and enjoy the old traditional henna applying "rituals".
Well, anyway its always nice and easy to make you look more beautiful and tune your mood up with a natural beautifying.
