Hello! My name is Melanie Kasten and I am a henna artist local to Kansas City, Missouri. I have been doing henna on and off since 2001. However, it is only since 2015 that I turned it into a much loved business.
I have found henna to be a great form of meditative art as it creates a sense of relaxation and beauty for myself as well as for the person receiving the henna. Even when lounging around at home in my pajamas, when I have my henna on, I feel beautiful. I also find joy and learn patience when creating the henna paste by hand as it takes 24 hours to become a usable paste.
Henna has become my favorite art form and outlet for expression. Please come and join me on this henna adventure.
