Our first finalist in the Mehndi Maharani 2011 contest is the lovely Lishma Patel, of Beauty By Lishma. As beautiful inside as she is out, Lishma’s bridal beauty philosophy is, “Gone are the days when Indian brides were 'made up' with a uniform bridal look. In fact, the new generations of Indian brides have similar expectations, if not higher, from their beauty artists than those of their dress designers. Each Indian bride deserves a signature bridal look.”
Based in Southern California, Beauty by Lishma consistently delivers gorgeous, traditional mehndi with a modern approach.

Did you know that the origin of Mehndi can first be traced back to Egypt?  It’s no surprise that Queen Cleopatra had one extra beauty trick up her sleeve!
