I booked Shalini looking at her work, and the fact that she was very easily approachable. However, unlike other vendors, she does not enter into a contract and prefers recording conversation on WhatsApp, which she refers to as an arrangement. I booked her in January for my mehendi ceremony in end of April. She charged me 50 percent advance which was non refundable. While she was accommodating initially, as the wedding date came closer, and we hit the second wave of the pandemic, upon speaking to her for reducing the number of people she was booked for, she had issues. To begin with, she first said that the whole amount will have to be paid irrespective of number of hands that she actually puts mehendi on. When I resisted, she said she has already paid and booked Mehendi artists for my function and if I reduce numbers now, it will be her loss. Most of my other vendors understood that the wedding scale had gone down from a 200 people gathering to a 20 people gathering given the restrictions imposed by Covid, but although she said she understood her actions say otherwise. Upon discusssion, and to be fair, I told her that her advance was not going to be touched, and from the 30 people I booked for, 10 would be paid for special mehendi at 1100 for both hands till wrist, and the rest would be paid for basis the mehendi that she puts. I had also instructed her that if anybody tells her to put mehendi for what is worth more than 1100, she will only put it for 1100 and direct them to me, because that is our understanding. On the day of the function, given that I was single handedly managing, decor, my hair and make up, and the venues, I was immensely pre occupied and stressed, and hadn't eaten anything and infact had alcohol so I fell sick that evening. What happened next was that I was whatsapped a sheet with Mehendi put on about 10 women, with rates that were atrocious. Other than my MIL who put mehendi only on one hand, and very little that too, everyone else that put mehendi was charged in the range of 3.5-4k. I only saw this the next day morning because I had medicine and went off to sleep the night before. But if my husband and parents are to be believed, she did not leave the venue and was asking for the whole amount despite everyone telling her that she had spoken to me, and she should wait to speak to me to settle the accounts. My parents felt so harrassed that they ended up paying her whatever cash they had, and a balance of about 6k or so was left which they said she could speak with me and collect. On my wedding day, from my haldi function till the wedding, I kept getting messages from her for the balance payment with absolutely no regard for the fact that I was getting married that day and I had a lot going on that needed to be taken care of. I was not going to run away with the money, whether or not I thought she deserved it or not. Honestly, for someone who claims to be a professional mehendi artist, this behaviour and consequent actions only show that all they care about is your money. Now, when it comes to my bridal mehendi, while she remembered to take advantage of my situation and put mehendi on my feet which I had said no to multiple times earlier, when I was not sick, and then charged me for it - she definitely forgot to put mehendi on my tips, and the oil that's put after to ensure that the colour comes through. While I paid a bomb for the mehendi, it was not worth a single penny.

I wish there was a negative rating for this woman who is a fraud . She is a cheater who took money in advance and did not turn up for my mehendi function and spoilt it. She is not at all professional and charges a lot for poor work quality. I made the mistake of choosing her and she spoiled my mehendi function. She came one day before my main function but as per her own convenience she turned up 3 hours before the scheduled time and was giving me an attitude for not accommodating. My family members seeing them sitting for long made time and ensured they didnt have to wait. Ms Shalini turned up with 4-5 other team members who were not at all experienced. The mehendi designs were repetitive and not worth the money. She just sits there and talks on the phone for good 4-5 hours and lets these inexperienced people spoil the brides mehendi . Over this she forcefully sells her balm which is very useless. She took the money on that day itself begging and saying she has no money to pay to her team and she needs the cash . Out of courtesy we paid her full hoping she will keep her word and turn up for the mehendi ceremony next day to be held . However she took the money and literally fled . Next day while i was getting ready for the function I got a call from my brother telling me no one from Shalini’s team has turned up at the venue and the guests are enquiring. I called her and she tells me she has sent one boy (when 3 were decided) to see if anyone is there and since no one was there and that guy was hungry he went out. I got angry and told her to stick to her word and send the 3 members as committed. Post this again i got calls from my brother that no one is there and on following up with Shalini she kept saying team is abut to reach . Once I reached the venue I realised nobody from shalini’s team is there . I called her multiple times and messaged her and she did not bother to answer any of them . I then called her from other numbers and then too she bothered to answer only once and say cab has broken down. My function started at 12 in the noon and she or her team did not bother to turn up until 5 pm . She neither answered calls only when she was told we will take strict action she turned up with her 2 team members and her husband. Her husband was a mannerless man who kept shouting that she is here now. Such pathetic people . They have no decency and spoiled my function. I was embarrassed in front of my guests because this woman got another booking where she was being paid more. She is a cheater and fraudster. Over and above this the mehendi colour was pathetic . Mehendi faded in like 2 days and the design and quality of work was pathetic .Request all to avoid booking this cheater woman who runs away with peoples money and does not show up on mehendi functions and spoils the day for brides.

I booked Shalini ji, for my sisters engagement. I was very strict about the quality of mehendi & the colour. Shalini ji assured us that she continues to use her organic mehendi with no chemicals and has never compromised with it whatsoever. Shalini ji advised us to apply mehendi 2 days in advance so the colour comes out beautifully by the main event. She comforted my sister and only after much discussion about the design, that Shalini ji began working. She kept in mind the love story of my sister & my brother in law, my sister’s outfit, her jewellery. EVERYTHING! We were surprised how Shalini ji was measuring everything up to ensure perfection in the designs. She kept customising the designs according to my sister. My sister was initially stressed about the keeping up mehendi for long hours and avoiding water at all costs. But when she woke up the next morning, my sister was extremely happy to see how the colour was coming out and how beautiful the designs were turning out to be. She was jumping all over the house! Lol . On the next day Shalini ji was supposed to come to apply my mehendi, she gave me beautiful peakcock designs surrounded by lotus flowers with daisies on the front. Most beautiful & delicate vines with tiny roses on the back of my hand. On the wrists on the back of my hand were lotus flowers. Shalini ji even kept it on consideration As I have a nail biting problem, I would need certain kind of work near my fingertips to make them look better. We have completely fallen in love with Shalini ji’s kind, generous, most empathetic and accommodating nature. I was surprised when she said that she wanted to give me floral designs. We have booked her for my sisters wedding too! You see how she keeps calculating and estimating which design needs to be placed where! I’d give her a 100/10 without a doubt UPDATE: WE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH EVERYTHING. THE MEHENDI DIDNT HAVE CHEMICAL & THE COLOUR LITERALLYYYYYY STAYED FOR 15 days. The pictures are from the next day, after me & my sister removed our mehendi.

Oh my god this lady can draw mehendi for hours. She did my mehendi no stop and it was unique and beautiful but the helpers she got were not that good. She was very patient understanding my taste and I did specify I want something that is not usual human face and figures but simple yet elegant design she did give her all the time and I would definitely recomend her. she really tries her best to live up to ur expectations and I love the dedication and time she had given me. Once again thankyou so much Shalini🙏🏻

I had booked shalini and very much happy from her and team work and very punctual. I was late at venue and she waits for me 2 hours. Thanks for being so patient. We also understand your profession and commitments with other brides and still you were so sweet and cooperative. Highly recommended.
