Are you looking for where you can just get a single henna design without booking a party? Here is a list of our major public events for 2017! Individual henna designs range $10-60, and the most designs are in the $25-30ish range.

Look for the booth pictured here. When you see this booth, you know it’s someone on the Henna by Heather team!

Know of a festival that should be on this list but isn’t yet? Let us know where, when, how many people typically come, and who to get in touch with!

Wanted to book a wedding or party for a date that Heather will be at a festival? For some dates, she can be convinced to do your event rather than the festival if booked at her full day rate. Associate artists on our team with 5+ years of henna art experience are also available with normal booking minimums (ie 2 hours in our primary service area).

Always call at 617-429-6301 and/or check our facebook page for updates before coming to an event just to see us – sometimes things change at the last minute due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
