Pricing:

Price for bridal henna is as per the design. I always work as per the client’s budget. You send me your design via whatsapp or instagram and I shall tell you the price. You can also tell me your budget and I would adjust the design as per your budget. Travelling cost is applicable if the appointment is at the client’s venue.
