The reason to rejoice in style! Why? Because Navratri utsav (season) is here. We’ve shortlisted 18 gorgeous mehndi (henna) designs for busy moms. These are effortless and easy to apply at home with very little help. For all those ladies who don’t quite know what Navaratri is all about, let me give you a brief description. This festival is dedicated to the worship of our Hindu deity Ma Durga. The word Navaratri literally means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit (the word ‘Nava’ means nine and the word ‘Ratri‘ means night). During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Devi are worshipped. Hindus all around the world celebrate this holy festival by fasting, dancing, with great devotion and fervour. So, obviously, looking good has to be a part of the daily routine.
Most mothers have very little time on them, that’s why I am not asking you to go out of the way to look good. You may just want to team up that perfect Indian ethnic wear or get into an Indo-western fusion outfit with minimalist jewellery for an offbeat look. A mehndi design on your fingers or hands (feet is optional) will only jazz it up for you. So, are you ready to be inspired by our handpicked mehndi designs?
3 Broad types of effortless Mehndi designs for moms:
1. Minimalist designs
Simple, less time-consuming, and extremely pretty, these designs are apt for today’s new-age mom who is happy with her festive look, yet wants to keep it simple and stylish.
2. Traditional designs
For all those moms who have a little extra time, they can opt for a more elaborate mehndi design. The traditional motifs such as paisleys, goddess Durga’s figurine, and other related designs with intricate details are best suited with a heavy, traditional attire.
3. Indo-Arabic designs
This mehndi design is trending a lot these days. The overall design is well spaced-out, looks clean yet festive. What makes this mehndi design stand out is the outline of the motifs/ overall pattern. Team it up with a Pakistani salwaar kameez or a chaniya choli. And, there you go!
So, mommies, this Navratri, pick up your dandiya sticks and go dancing with your little ones!
