henna then brunch? or brunch then henna? it's a tough choice
These besties carved out a window around brunch-time to get some henna while I was catching up in the studio on a Sunday.
One thing Ferndale has a LOT of is a great place to get brunch on the weekend:
Public House, Fly Trap, One Eyed Bettys, and Imperial are my personal favorites with or without a cocktail. Speaking of drinks; folks really like the bloody mary bar at the Emory & at Dino's.
Can I also recommend popping in to The Boston Tea Room and The Red Hook while you're in town.
Oh, AND The Rust Belt Market for shopping.
If you're planning on henna, appointments are booked on-line Tuesday-Saturday for individual henna or parties up to 7 people. Please text or call 248-797-0416 if you want a time that isn't shown and I'll see what I can do!
Henna is a plant. The leaves are harvested, dried and milled. When I get the prepared powder, it it about the texture of bread flour.
I mix the paste myself with water (or tea), sugar (or maple syrup) and essential oils.
The paste stains everywhere its painted onto the skin and the stain lasts about 10 days of pretty and fades from there.
Natural henna smells great! And since I mix my own, I can customize the paste for occasions or sensitivities.
