Absolutely loved getting henna done by the sweet Ayla! She and her partner James made me feel welcomed and very comfortable. The designs seemed to be drawn effortlessly and were beautifully symmetrical! I will definitely get more henna in the future. Such a pleasure.
Ayla is super sweet and friendly and is also incredibly talented, I'd recommend her to anyone :)
Hello! My name is Ayla Roda, and I am a licensed and fully-insured mehndi/henna artist in the DMV area. I consistently offer the highest quality, most beautiful henna designs. With 5 years of mehndi/henna experience, I offer over 100+ cataloged designs, along with thousands of custom and freestyle designs. I make a point to only use all-natural, hypoallergenic henna!
The events I have done range from full bridal henna parties and receptions to children's mehndi birthday parties. I have also been hosted by Yoga studios, universities, local businesses, and art shows. In addition, I hold regular private appointments, and have worked with talented models who showcase my work. I also have a great deal of festival experience working individually and as a resident henna artist at the Maryland Renaissance Festival from late August to late October. During the MRF, I work with approximately 100-150+ clients each day. I have also been featured as a henna artist at the Florida Renaissance Festival and other similar venues.
Mehndi/Henna for a celebration is the best way to provide yourself and your guests with a truly unique, beautiful, and unforgettable experience!
*I use 100% natural henna with all natural ingredients, I never use "black henna."*
