Types Of Mehndi
Types Of Mehndi
There are many different styles of mehndi,
depending on the cultural background they come from. The most famous
ones are Arbi, Pakistani, African, and Indian. These designs are particularly
easy to distinguish from others. Here's why:
This style tends
to be less detailed and intricate. Don't get me wrong, its still
very beautiful. Instead of having fill-ins it is just colored in boldly.
Arbi designs don't necessarly cover your hands or feet all the way.
They tend to be "kula kula" which means open or flowing. Many
popular Arbi designs are vines and leaves with beautiful flowers. This
makes it an excellent and perfect candidate, if you want to have a bail
going down your arm or leg.
This one is one of my all time favorites.
It is the most detailed and intricate, as well as, the most time consuming
and exhausting design to produce for the artist. Pakistani mehndi is
known for it's detailed and fine fill-ins. If you really want to
question an artist's abilities, ask them to produce an incredibly
beautiful Pakistani design. Of course it is really expensive, but it's
worth every penny. These designs are famous for being modeled by dhulanain
(Pakistani brides), as well as close female family members and friends.

This style is mainly bold. No fine lines
or fill-in are used but it's still extremely different from Arbi
mehndi. How, you ask? Well these designs consist of geometric shapes
and figures, also many lines and dots. It is very simple, but very pretty.
The most famous design for Indian mehndi
is a big dot or figure in the middle of the palm, with finger tips colored
completely. How did this style become so famous??
