Where did you guys meet?
We met on Facebook on the JMU19 page. We were both looking for roommates and we found each other.
How did you guys come up with the idea to start this business?
We both grew up doing henna for birthdays, holidays, special occasions and just recreationally. Over the years we’ve gotten better and better and decided to bring something new to JMU.
What has been your favorite design you’ve ever done?
Neither of us have a favorite design. The designs we favor to do are traditional henna designs.
Since it’s your guy’s first year at JMU what has been your favorite thing so far?
For both of us, it’s been living with each other. After we met on Facebook we became best friends and now we’re basically joined at the hip. Living with your best friend really makes your college experience more enjoyable.
