About Me

Neeta Desai Sharma

Neeta Desai Sharma, Mehndi-DesignerMy name is Neeta Desai Sharma, and for over last two and half decades I have been adorning brides and inspiring artists with my mehndi designs. A social worker by profession I have always had a very special relationship with doing henna/mehndi. I am a self-taught henna artist practicing this art for the last 27 years and have always been committed to providing artistic, professional services and making my clients experience with henna/mehndi a unique, enjoyable and an unforgettable one.

I was born and raised in India and have traveled a great deal (throughout Asia, Australia, Europe and North America) and have practiced my passion and also taught courses on the intricate art of henna in these countries.

This exquisite form of body art is part of my cultural heritage and I am proud to be able to decorate each bride-to-be with a pattern unique to her personality, including motifs that express her inner dreams and desires.

Although proficient in many styles of Henna, I treasure traditional Indian bridal designs, and take exacting care with high degree of detail in my work. I love how the mehndi ceremony fits into the entire celebration of Indian Weddings, and cherish my role as one of many spokes in the wheel, making a couple’s special day truly a memorable occasion. Once I had a parent tell me “Your role is so important in a wedding as it is usually the mehndi ceremony that kicks off the wedding festivities”.

I am currently providing henna services throughout the central valley (in and around Merced, Turlock, Modesto, Stockton, Sacramento, and Yuba City) as well as the bay area (in and around San Francisco, Fremont, Sunnyvale, San Jose, Sonoma, Pleasanton, and surrounding area).

My henna paste is made with 100% natural Henna powder, lemon juice, and essential oils. I do not use “Black henna” because I believe it is unethical and dangerous.

I can do Mehndi/Henna for just about any occasion. I Specialize in Bridal Mehndi, Sangeet Parties, Engagements, Baby Showers, Birthday Parties, Ladies Night outs, School Events, Corporate Events and Fundraisers. I love to extend this art form onto cakes and other mediums like wood, glass and candles.

Spring Fling Henna Conference

Spring Fling is held annually in Northern California and the current dates will be announced on the Spring Fling Website and Facebook Community. This conference is a labor of love of Neeta Sharma and Jigna Goodwin. From 5 attendees in the first year this conference has grown steadily and has benefited a lot of artists at a professional and personal level. Over the years a lot of amazing and wonderful teachers have been part of this conference and we are always trying out new ideas for classes to help benefit the participants to do better in their henna journey.
