I can travel anywhere in the state of Iowa and even to the surrounding states (NE, MO, MN, and IL) with a small travel fee. I bring all of the mehndi supplies and a few design books that I have made. Set up time is about 15 min.  I require you to provide a table, chairs and good lighting. If you can not provide these things please let me know and i will bring them. Bookings can be taken up to a year in advance. Please email me at to get a hold of me. Let me know which package you are wanting, day, time, place, and number of people. Phone calls can be made to

515-598-5155 from 8 am until 8 pm.

There is a flat travel fee $30 for the first 100 miles from my home to yours. After the first 100 miles it is 50 cent a mile. Miles will be determined from either Ames or Grinnell according to MapQuest.

Payment includes the following: my time to drive to you, my time doing the henna, the henna, and the henna supplies. Tips are not included but I do not expect one unless I am doing a big event or where asked to stay a little longer. I may require a downpayment if it is booked in the summer days where I get many requests. Downpayment will assure you the day you want and it is not refundable. As of June 2011 there will now be a contract for all events.  


Bridal packages : ASK TO FIND OUT PRICES

 For the bride only for as much mehndi as wanted.

For the bride with one hour past her time (roughly about 10 to 15 people).

For the bride with two hours past her time.

For the bride and three hours past her time .

I can add a custom painting with the bride and groom names and date of wedding to any package deal starting at $35 for an 8x10 canvas. You can pick the colors to match the wedding or house.  There is also a 11x14 canvas for $60 and 16x20 canvas for $100. It will be given at the time I come to do the bridal henna. If you choose this, please let me asap so I can get it done in time for your bridal henna party. I prefer at least a week's notice for this.


Big events (where more than 30 people will be) will have two prices. One with tips allowed and another without tips. All the designs done are small to a medium size so that way the line can keep moving. The pricing is for a TWO hour block. Additional per hour past the three hours. I am flexible with schools for I know they are on tight budgets. So please ask about school rates.

JUST ASK plus tips 

JUST ASK with no tips


For smaller parties like baby shower, birthday party, bridal shower, girls night out, graduation or just about any other party that people have with a min of 5 people

just ask. (There will be a flat charge of $30 for travel.)

You can add a custom painting to this package too. It will be $25 for an 8x10. For a 11x14 it will be $40 and 16x20 for $75. It will be given at the time of the party. You can pick the background color and the two accent colors. If you choose this, please let me asap so I can get this done in time for your party.  I prefer at least a week's notice for this.


 I can also teach small classes at schools and libraries. In two hours I'll talk about the history of henna, how it varies from culture to culture, the designs and their meanings as well as how to care for their designs. Then everyone will get a chance to create a design on a paper hand or foot using some of the designs I show in class. At the very end everyone will get a medium size design on them. A sheet with all that was explained in class which will also have the aftercare instructions as well as a small cone of mehndi to practice at home. I can do a max of two classes in one day with a half hour between each class. (this MUST be booked with a three weeks notice or more and no children under 8)

classes must have a min of 3 people and it will be $30 per student (max of 30 students)


I have been asked if I do individual tattoos. I do. It will cost a flat $30 fee for driving plus the cost of the design. Designs start at $50 to $150 (full belly or full back).

We do henna crowns for those who have lost their hair due to cancer and would like something fun on their heads for a week or so.


We also do pregnant bellies for baby showers or just for fun.
