When choosing henna for the guests, consider how many guests you’ll have present, and what you have available to budget for their henna.
5 Minutes Each:
Our standard event henna is 5 minutes (12 per hour). This allows for each person to get an authentic and traditional, but relatively simple, design on one hand. This is the norm at 80% of the events we do.
Time to plan: for 5 minute designs, 12 guests per hour per artist
up to 24 guests: 2 hours with 1 artist
25-36 guests: 3 hours with 1 artist
37-48 guests: 4 hours with 1 artist, or 2 hours with 2 artists
49-60 guests: 5 hours with 1 artist, or 2.5 hours with 2 artists
61-72 guests: 3 hours with 2 artists, or 2 hours with 3 artists
73-84 guests: 3.5 hours with 2 artists, or 2.5 hours with 3 artists.
Here are some examples of designs that take 5 minutes each:
10 Minutes Each:
If you’d like guests to be able to get both hands done with designs like those above, or if you’d like them to be able to get a more intricate design like these on just one hand, you’ll want to book closer to 10 minutes per guest:
Double the time estimates above to determine how much time / how many artists you should book.
20 Minutes Each:
With fewer guests, we can spend more time with each! Here are some examples of the kinds of work we can do when we have 20 minutes per person:
Do you have a really large event?
We have a team of up to 12 artists available!
