Stunning Mehndi designs you have to see, which are easy and simple, yet, unique.

There are an array of designs, belonging to different cultures. Such as Arabic, Indian, and Pakistani.

However, more recently, these have amalgamated with a modern twist, creating unique interior pieces and lovely patterns for the hands and feet.

For example, in 2013, worldwide star Rihanna, spent 11 hours getting a henna-inspired tattoo.

Other celebs taking on the tradition include Vanessa Hudgens, Madonna, Beyoncé, and Gwen Stefani.

DESIblitz brings you some incredibly creative Mehndi designs.

Glow Baby Glow!

Glow in the dark Mehndi?!

Yes, the latest Mehndi designs include the neon glowing henna kit.

After a surge in festival culture and nights out, young girls are starting to use Mehndi with glowing finishes.

A Birmingham based Henna Artist on Instagram, Zareen’s Henna, has also started this vibrant trend, labelled as ‘UV Henna.’ Available in neon colours, Zareen says:

“They all glow under a UV light apart from the gold and silver and are safe to use on any skin type, even on the face!”

The patterns are still similar and ethnic, yet, the colours are assorted. So you will surely catch everybody’s attention coated in UV henna.

However, it probably won’t last as long as the original henna.

Design Evolution

Mehndi experts are exploring new and unique tattoo patterns.

Such as butterflies, writing, and even religious symbols (also worn by men), are growing in popularity.

The latest Mehndi designs, seem to be ditching the idea of permanent tattoos for temporary tattoos, that are interchangeable.

Tribal stencils are also growing in popularity, as completely distinctive patterns of Mehndi.

There may well be new trends but, don’t forget the classic floral designs, which will never go out of fashion!

Mehndi Bracelet

The latest Mehndi designs are also combining with the jewellery world.

There has been an increase in bracelet style patterns. Wrapping standard motif designs around the wrist, instead of up the hand, is definitely a good way to accessorise.

This style provides an elegant charm on the arm.

Perhaps, a good idea for someone who isn’t a big fan of Mehndi, and likes to keep things simple!

Decorative Fingers

Mehndi designs are not only for the hands! They are also showing up on cakes, candles, and even glass decorations.

The artists are now taking inspiration from hand patterns, onto decorating champagne flutes, jars, lanterns, and candles.

Henna homeware items could be the perfect gift, as ornaments for weddings, and quirky decorations for the house.

So, as we can see, a staple fashion trait of Eastern culture is moving beyond its normal boundaries, into the Western world, and even into our homes.

Who knew henna would become such a diverse trend-setter?
