1. Traditional Mehndi Designs:

Most traditional designs are actually called as Indian mehndi designs. These are a complex pattern of peacocks, paisleys, flora and fauna- along with exquisite curls and curves, without leaving any space in between.That’s why they are design-heavy, elaborate and absolutely festive. Go for a full hand, back of your palm or let it spread right from the fingertips to the elbow or the arm. Go all out and look glamorously traditional for Ashtami or Navmi!awesome-mehndi-designs-03


2. Minimalist Mehndi Designs:

Most minimalist mehndi designs are either Arabic or Indo-Arabic patterns. Highly dense, Arabic mehndi designs are more like decorative, thick outlines than filled patterns. Much simpler than Indian designs. In the case of the Indo-Arabic mehndi design, the bold Arabic style outline is filled in with delicate, traditional Indian patterns, and shapes. The most sought after style for a classy function. Sport it with a traditional or an Indo-western outfit, this mehndi style will never fail to disappoint you.awesome-mehndi-designs-05
