Mehndi is not a true Bengali tradition but I’ve seen Bengali ladies with red coloured designs on hands. I believe the colour used is called ‘Aalta’ or at least we call it so in North. But as every culture loves to borrow from others, Mehndi has become popular among Bengali girls. Even my Bengali friend wore mehndi on her wedding.
I’ve tried to pick designs accurately but please do let me know whether these fit in Bengali tradition or not. Here are ten amazing and simple henna designs-
If you like to fill your hands with henna then this design is perfect for you. It is simple and made of beautiful flowers. The look has been enhanced with stones.
I called it that as it is so easy to make. Draw a few patterns and fill them with henna. Very simple but still your hands will look all colourful.
This design uses some simple floral patters adorned with tendrils. You can replicate it on your hands easily. Do some shading and its ready.
Paisley is probably the most commonly used pattern for mehndi designs. It is use in various forms and can be designed in many different ways.
This one is super simple. Patterns are artistic and different. Anyone can make it to get beautiful hands.
This design also uses a paisley as the central pattern. The palm has been fully covered with simple yet lovely designs. Try it for a wedding.
I love it for its simplicity. It has a tiny paisley, flowers and heart shaped patterns. Try it if you are new to mehndi or have less time.
This mehndi design looks truly traditional. I like the way it looks. To me it appears like some pooja decoration.
Round mehndi designs are favourites with many people. Use a round object to draw the circle and fill it with any pattern of your choice.
It looks like many branches of a tree or simply vines. It is easy and great to get fully covered hands quickly.
