Here are some common henna styles you can choose from:

Indian

Indian and Pakistani mehendi are very similar in their imagery, usually involving heavy use of designs such as flowers, peacocks and paisleys. Much of this finds resonance in Mughal architecture and design, which also uses similar motifs.

Arab

The Arabic mehendi craze started with bold designs that used jet black henna. This unique style of henna has evolved rapidly and now offers many variations. One includes designs that ditch complexity for bold designs, using thick lines and multiple large and small sleeves, which are filled in a shaded format (similar to how color is smeared using of a brush). This design is adorned with thick borders to effectively bring out the shaded parts. When dried and removed, the mehndi appears to have three to four color variations like black, brown, dark and light orange, due to the shading effect given to it. Other designs include motifs used in Arabic architecture.

afro

Just like their Arabic counterparts, these designs are not complex. Instead, they use simple geometric shapes, made up of lines, squares, and dots very similar to tribal art to create hand and arm designs that resemble dinner mesh. In fact, mesh is an important aspect of African mehndi.


Here are some Indian henna designs


Rajasthan/Marwadi

The rich architecture and intricate work of the jali gives the whole of Rajasthan a royal look and the same can be said for the mehendi designs of this region. Designs resembling jharokhas and traditional Rajasthani jali work are common here and created using very fine cones.

Bombay style

In this model, artists create miniatures of landmarks like the India Gate and Marine Drive to smaller elements like the chai cut and vada pav, which are exclusively centered on Mumbai.

These designs are then mixed with regular bridal mehndi designs to complete the look.

Hyderabadi

Hyderabadi mehendi often includes many elements of intricate Indian and Pakistani designs, creating elaborate designs from geometric shapes and checkered patterns, or paisleys and other floral designs woven together.

Gujarati

Similar to the Marwari style, Gujrati mehendi is usually extravagant and mimics the elaborate designs of the art of the region. These patterns make extensive use of the peacock pattern, sometimes combining it with plaid or paisley patterns. Some artists are known to recreate intricate rangoli designs in their mehendi as well.

Punjabi

Punjabi mehendi designs usually do not involve the use of fine lines. Instead, these use lots of dots and circular patterns, curved lines as well as the checkered pattern, which is used to fill shapes like paisleys and lotuses.


For bling lovers


Shine

If you are one of those who love bling, then glitter, sequins and mehendi gems will help add glamor to your design. Another variation of this design is glitter mehendi which can be applied with glitter cones containing henna. These come in various metallic shades for that shimmering look. This style is great for those who would love to be adorned, but don’t want a lasting effect.

Zardozi

With this style, you can incorporate the embroidery designs from your lehenga/sari onto your arms. Mehendi artists can imitate the fabulous gold embroidered and jeweled bridal saree fabrics and weave them into mehendi designs. Simply lay out your wedding attire in front of the artist and he will recreate the exact design with henna using colors and patterns to complement it.
