Henna for Teens

henna hand with camelHey teens! Looking for something fun to do next week? On Tuesday we will be using henna to create temporary designs on the skin. Henna, a plant-based product made from henna tree leaves, is used by many cultures around the world as a form of artistic expression. Henna is not permanent, but it does temporarily stain the skin. Henna will wash or fade from the skin in one to three weeks.

Any teen (ages 12 to 18) who wishes to participate must have a completed parental permission form. Teens without a form can attend the program, but will not be allowed to participate. Permission forms can be obtained at the first floor Reference Desk of the Tomball Library. For more information, please call the library at 832-599-4200.

The henna program will take place in the first floor Meeting Room on Tuesday, July 20th from 3:00-4:30 pm.
