People are starting to talk about "white henna." Just do a Google search and you'll find hundreds of stunning images.


"White henna" looks like an exciting option for darker skin tones as well as for Western-style brides who don't want traditional red henna.

Since its beginnings, mehndi (henna) has been associated with women's rites of passage, especially weddings. Even today, many brides in the Middle East and Southeast Asia wouldn't think of leaving off mehndi when they put on their bridal finery. Mehndi, in fact, is at its most complex and intricate in the dense, lace-like designs of Indian bridal work.

Many charming traditions are associated with mehndi.
