Henna – a rich tradition

Henna حنا is considered the typical bride decoration in most of the Gulf countries. Brides get painted by their closest female relatives and friends in a special ceremony. Usually the arms get fully covered from nail to shoulder and the legs from toe to knee.

Despite the mostly critical attitude towards using a lot of make up or nail polish Henna is very trending among young Omani women even using it for Islamic holidays like Eid.
