Kenzi on Yelp

Kenzi in Brides Magazine

Kenzi in Time Magazine Person of the Year    

Dianne E. says: We hired Lisa for our daughter's bat mitzvah party. She was on time, friendly and great with kids. Her designs are gorgeous. Hire her!!

Jean A. says: Booked Lisa to come to my home to do some henna art for me and my sister-in-law visiting from California - Lisa does remarkable and beautiful work - she is wonderful to speak to - so knowledgeable and interesting about henna art - I/we will book her again and often - it was pure delight!    

Rosa O. says: I went to Lisa for the first Henna, and my experience was wondering. Lisa is so very nice and kind, and my design came out Amazing, I keep looking at it. If anyone is considering Henna, Lisa is your person. Thank you Lisa for your Amazing work.

Rebekah C. says: I loved this class with Kenzi! I learned so much about henna and how to mix my own paste. It was a very welcoming atmosphere and I was able to ask a lot of questions. I highly recommend this class for all those aspiring henna artists out there!!!!    

Hema J. says: Lisa was wonderful! She came to my Brother's engagement party and stunned all the guests with her artistic work. She's quick, patient, and kind. She made older ladies and little girls alike so happy with her beautiful designs! Thank you....

Anneka N. says: My daughter and five of her friends (plus three adults) had a fabulous time having Lisa apply her gorgeous designs (none the same and none copied from an existing pattern) for my daughter's 10th birthday party. Lisa shared a bit of background about henna and her own history of learning the art which was a really nice way for the girls to start the evening. We were all really excited to see the designs come to life over the course of the evening and the next morning. This is a wonderful way for birthday parties to have an at-home event where the fun will continue for a week or two as people discuss the designs adorning your foot, ankle, hand or wrist!

Afua G. says: I had a birthday gathering that I planned for myself and friends. Each time the invitees were canceling one after another and the venue that was chosen wasn't suitable for what I envisioned this celebration to be. Luckily Lisa knew the owner of a cute Cafe 2 doors down and just as the remainder of the guest arrived we were able to sit and enjoy the the henna experience. One of guest found out they were neighbours and bonded over their community. She turned a very stressful situation into a memorable experience. I definitely recommend her to my friends and will use her services in the future.

Danielle S. says: The henna was absolutely beautiful and everything I wanted. Lisa is so talented and a lovely warm person. If you ever want henna and u live in New York City you must come here!

Susie K. says: I went to a bridal consult. I loved her, she did a great design on my hand for a test run, my only concern was that the henna itself was runny. Which ended up running in the palm of my hand for quite some time. But she did great designs but I am opting for someone else

Jen R. says: Lisa is an outstanding henna artist with exceptional skills which are only topped by her awesome personality. It was as if though I was sitting with an old friend. We went over her past designs to come up with the perfect design for my wedding. Then she gave me a sample design to further demonstrate her amazing skill and the quality of her henna. Very intricate and beautiful work. I would recommend her to anyone anytime! So glad I found her!

Carla M. says: I booked a private class with Lisa because I am brand new to the world of henna art. Lisa is an amazing instructor! She was prepared, very thorough, and let me be "hands-on" throughout the entire session. I was so pleased with all of the information and materials I received. I can only hope to become as knowledgeable and creative as is Lisa. Thanks for a great day trip to Brooklyn!

Andrea F. says: I went to Lisa for a trial for my wedding; she did an awesome design on my hand during the consultation; she knows what she is doing and is very personable!

My daughter mentioned a henna tattoo as a potential birthday present. So I did a search and found Lisa. And it was a great experience. My daughter received 3 lovely designs. The setting was relaxed and friendly. Highly recommended!!
- Bennett C 

Full disclosure: people at my mehndhi party were asking, "Really? That white girl is doing your bridal mehndhi?" But as soon as Lisa whipped out her mehndhi tubes and started her amazingly intricate designs, the room was wowed. She managed to intertwine such delicate details within the crevices of my fingers. Lisa was so professional and delightful and so incredibly talented. I'd definitely recommend her to any bride for her personal mehndhi, as well as anyone who wants to have her mehndhi done even for fun!
- Pia P

I am so grateful to have discovered a scholar more knowledgeable than myself of my own North African heritage. Lisa, so skillfully, and graciously, creates one-of-a-kind body art, all the while providing a relaxing energy and meaningful discussion as to the design's content.
- Sarah L

Kenzi was the hit of the baby shower I threw for my sister! The guests varied from young to old, from novice henna-ers to experienced and all were thrilled with their tattoos. The best part was how gorgeous my sister's stomach was for her last few weeks of pregnancy. Kenzi was reliable, patient and extremely professional! 
- Sabriya, New York, NY

Kenzi was wonderful....not only is she a sweetheart but her work is PHENOMENAL!!! I contacted Kenzi for a baby friend was so surprised and so pleased with Kenzi's work!! All other guests got a taste of her beautiful work as well since we all got a tattoo...I highly recommend her!! 
- Helen, Secaucus, NJ

Kenzi did my mehndi for my wedding here in NY and it was excellent! She also did mehndi for my bridesmaids and my mother and mother-in-law. Everyone loved her designs and her attitude. She was really lovely and made everyone feel at ease. Her work was beautiful and the colour came out amazing! I was very pleased and got many compliments about how wonderful the mehndi was on the wedding day and on honeymoon. Thank you Kenzi - your work is amazing! 
- Sara, New York, NY

Lisa did a wonderful job for our Moroccan-themed Bat Mitzvah. Many kids, both girls and boys, as well as adults, left with beautiful henna tattoos. She and her accompanying artist were quick and did a great job. Definitely recommend!
- Maya K

Lisa is an amazing Henna artist, and such an amazing person! She did my bridal henna in August and there was no other choice for me when I planned my Holiday Henna Party! Thank you Lisa :)
- Sandhya S

I hired Lisa for 3 hours for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. It was one of the highlights of the party. All of the kids loved it but the adults loved it even more! It was so much more fun than the typical party photo booth or tattoos. I highly recommend her for your next event.
- Shelley K

For the Eid Holiday I was looking for a henna artist and I found Kenzi. There was others but Lisa's prices was reasonable compared to others. I scheduled my appointment during the week for the following weekend. Lisa applied the henna with such skill that I was truly amazed. The design is beautiful. I love it. Can't wait for the next appt. I am going to recommend others to her.
- Fannie B

I had my stomach done for a maternity shoot. It turned out beautifully. I received tons of compliments and I loved it. I had to bring all of my children and my husband, she was accommodating and never made us feel out of place or uncomfortable. Once again thank you. I will definitely use you again. :)
- Nicole H

Lisa is very personable and her skills are magnificent! She created a beautiful Ganesha on my belly then did the hands of guests. Each design was personalized to the person requesting it. Everyone absolutely loved the experience. My friends and I will definitely call on her again!
- Victoria L

My daughter is celebrating her 21st BDay in the upcoming week and we kicked off the celebration with Henna. Lisa was warm and knowledgeable; the attention to detail made this special day for my daughter and I memorable. For the next 3 weeks we will sing your praises as we accept complements for the beautiful art we wear everywhere we travel. We will be back when the weather is warmer :) Peace and Blessings!
- Cherlyn W

I had my stomach henned in Moroccan designs with lots of Anti evil eye symbols, and charts to confuse bad devils, and for healthy delivery. It turned out amazing!!!! i love the designs. Kenzi is also henning people at my baby shower this weekend. I cant wait!! It will "make " the party. !!
- Katherine b

On a whim, I had Lisa henna my hands this past weekend, and I absolutely love it. New Yorkers are famous for not paying attention to their surroundings, but I get so many compliments from random people on the subway, the street, etc. Given that this was my first time getting henna done, I was a little nervous, and Lisa was great about explaining the process and the history to me. All around, it was (and is!) a great experience, and I'll definitely be back for more.
- Betsy E

The belly henna design was truly perfect and really incorporated a number of things I liked! We had a fabulous time and it really made for a fun event. I'd recommend Lisa to anyone interested in doing this!
- Ashley L

For three days straight I have been constantly complimented and questioned about the beautifully intricate designs on my hands. What a great experience and a beautiful outcome. Thank you Lisa for being so warm and welcoming during the actual process, as well.
- Iman S

Kenzi is wonderful! She is down to earth and loves to get to know people. But most of all her henna work is great pieces of art. She did henna on my hands and feet for my wedding as well as for my bridesmaids. We all loved her work. She took our ideas and created art. The work was just as good as the henna work I received in India for my engagement ceremony. She uses her own henna and it smells great. Her prices are reasonable for the area and I did the leg work to find out :). I loved working with her. She was reliable and helpful and answered questions promptly. I have already recommended her to friends. And I'm sure I will use her again in the future. 
- Pam, Jersey City, NJ

We hired Kenzi for my son's Bar Mitzvah. We had it at an Indian/Latin restaurant and had a Bollywood theme. Amongst the ladies and girls, Kenzi was the hit of the party. Kenzi's work was truly beautiful. Kenzi came to the event dressed appropriately, her work space was neat and clean. We did not know anyone that used her prior to our event and her work exceeded our expectations. You cannot go wrong hiring this Henna artist.
- Jane, New York, NY

Amazing! Kind, courteous and awesomely talented. All my guests were blown away and many who were reluctant to be henna'd at first, left the party glad Kenzi had gotten them to open up. Only henna artist I've ever worked with, but one of the most professional interactions I've had in all my years of party planning. 
- David, New York, NY

Kenzi did the henna on my hands and feet for my wedding. She did a really a good job and the ink turned out really well. Everyone even strangers were raving about how nice it looked that I should get it permanently! It lasted for a couple weeks, slightly less for my feet, but that's because I went to the beach after the wedding and the salt water washed it off after 3 days. Kenzi made the experience very relaxed and her designs are a real work of art. The whole experience actually de-stressed my bridesmaids and I and it became a bonding experience. 
- Nyleres, New York, NY

I had my henna done by Kenzi for my wedding. She also did the henna all of my friends / bridal party a few days before my wedding at a mehndi party. It was great! My friends loved having their henna done, and my own henna looked amazing!! I've had it done many times before but this was definitely the best - I followed her instructions concerning how to make the color of the henna last and keep it looking beautiful - it did not fade completely until the last day of my honeymoon - almost 3 weeks after the wedding! 
- Tasneem, Brooklyn, NY

When Kenzi was visiting California, I had the rare opportunity to be henna'd by her. As a fellow henna artist, I assure you there are not a lot of people I will let henna me. I proudly sported the most amazing Moroccan style design for 2 weeks. Not a lot of artists can do Moroccan, but Kenzi is the head-mistress of Moroccan. I got soo many compliments with her henna on me! Love! 
- Darcy, San Francisco, CA

The henna art added so much to the shower. Kenzi artist was so talented and accommodating. We greatly enjoyed having her and would definitely recommend this company.
