Mehendi - an ancient pattern is the trend of this summer

Summer 2015 gave the world of fashion a lot of new products that no one would have thought of before. More recently, girls applied temporary chic gold and silver flash tattoos on their bodies to be even more seductive on the beach, and now more and more often in the city you can meet girls who seem to have just returned from a vacation somewhere near India.

Their hands are painted with a dark brown lace pattern. This picture looks mysterious and attracts the attention of ordinary passers-by, but what is it? Many call it mehendi or mehndi. Mehendi – This is an ancient ornamental art of applying henna patterns to the body. It appeared in ancient times, in the closed coolness of harems, where not a single extra glance could penetrate.

Henna has been successfully used since ancient Egypt, where rich ladies, queens and priestesses devoted long hours to decorating their bodies. Mehndi is considered a symbol of good luck for women who are married in Indian culture. Women in India firmly believe that mehndi on the body will help them find love and even more care from their husband. For a newly-made bride, mehndi is like the first lesson in her life.

And because of how wonderful and amazing the mehndi decorations on her arms and legs, so a young woman should try to delight her husband and his family. Henna drawings should drive away all the bad and attract the good.

In our girls, we decided that mehndi is an alternative to tattoos. After all, a tattoo is forever, and mehndi will wash off after a while. Indeed, mehendi has become a real fashion boom this summer. Masters began to appear rapidly, who draw openwork pictures to decorate hands no worse than Indian ones. And for fashionistas, this is another solution on how to distinguish yourself thanks to a temporary pattern on the body, moreover, with ancient roots.
