Prior to your henna appointment, you should ensure that the skin you will be adorning is washed, clean and free from moisturisers. Where applicable you may need to remove your contact lenses, ensure you have eaten and wearing comfortable clothing. It may also help to be freshly showered as you will need to avoid contact with water for 24 hours after henna application. Any hair removal or waxing, and manicures should be done 2 days beforehand. For private appointments, your henna design can be dried, taped and covered. For feet henna designs, flip-flops/sandals are advised.
