Cultural Implication/Henna Artist (TIMES: 12p-2p) 

Sana Yousuf from OC Henna is coming into our space to share henna art with our guests! Sana will provide free hennas to anyone who is interested! This is a huge part of any celebration in the Islamic Culture and we are celebrating Ramadan with the decoration of your hands or feet! Henna comes from a plant and has been used as a natural dye throughout history in many cultures. The henna paste is derived from the leaves of the plant which is ground to a fine powder and then mixed with various liquids to achieve the desired consistency. Henna Artists all have their own favorite mix. Most often these include lemon juice and essential oils. In Islam, the prophet Mohammad (saws) used henna paste for hair dyeing. Many people still dye their body, hair and beards with henna. In some Islamic countries, the use of henna is reserved for the celebrations of Ramadan, Eid, weddings, pregnancy and birth, while in others it is used as an everyday beautification. In weddings, a henna party is an occasion for women to celebrate, to visit and talk, or simply an opportunity for women to gather and beautify themselves. OC Henna intends to spread the tradition of henna beautification to Orange County residents in Southern California. Henna beautification is temporary and non-toxic. Furthermore, it brings smiles on many faces and makes all events more enjoyable. We will be glad to serve our community for any event requiring our services. Please contact us at 949-432-8372.
