7 Amazing Kashmiri Female Mehandi Artists That You Should Book For Your Wedding
A wedding is incomplete without mehndi or henna on the bride’s hands and feet. Earlier, matchsticks were used to apply the mehandi on the mahrin. Eventually, things changed and proper mehandi artists came into the picture. Since the past few years, male mehndi artists had dominated the sector and that too from outside the state.
Fortunately, things are changing and now more females are joining the field especially from the valley itself. And wait for it, their designs are incredibly beautiful.
