Mehndi is a mandatory thing during teej. Ladies want it for sure. It is so important that a special category of teej mehndi designs has been kept aside for this particular festival. Ladies love to get their hands and feet coloured in henna and spend hours in applying it. Therefore, to help all these pretty ladies dress up properly to the occasion, not forgetting how important their mehndi is to them, we have come up with some latest mehndi designs which will get you ladies in a dilemma of which one to choose. You’re going to want all of them.
What is the Teej Festival and When it Is:
Festivals are the days that we Indians keep waiting for. Not that we get to have a day off, but because of the way we gather to celebrate each festival beautifully. Teej is one of them, the only drawback being that it’s only for the ladies. Teej welcomes the monsoons. It is primarily dedicated to Goddess Parvathi and her union with Lord Shiva.
This is the time when women enjoy the most. They are all dressed up in bright sarees, henna-coloured hands, jewellery, bangles, etc. and spend the festival dancing, singing, meeting their friends and gossiping, cooking delicacies and most importantly, praying for the well-being of their husband and children. Let’s check out top 10 latest mehndi designs for teej festival.
Beautiful Mehndi Designs for Teej Festival:
1. Arabic Style Mehndi Design for Teej:
This is a beautiful floral mehendi design for teej. It has big flowers accompanied by small leaves, twigs and buds. The best aspect of this particular design is that it is easy and can be done within no time. We say this because we expect that you must be good at drawing simple flowers.
- Body Placement: You can make it a bit different by covering your index finger completely while just highlighting the other fingers. Make sure you carry the design below your palm. This mehendi design can also be done on your feet. You can choose to either completely cover your feet or a thin border with this design to outline your feet.
- Pair with: If you are planning to wear something light like a chiffon saree with some contemporary jewellery, this mehndi design will suit the best. It would not be heavy for your look either underappreciated.
2. Glitter Teej Mehndi Design:
To complete the glam look, one must add a touch of shimmer and glitter. So, for all those who love to sparkle at night, we have mehndi designs with glitter too. Once you are done with your basic design, you will have to apply glitter to solid fill or outline some elements of your mehndi. It would rather be better if you used more than one colour but keep in mind that you need to take care of colour combinations. Taking the case that you are getting a floral design done, you have beautiful glittery colours to fill the petals of the flowers in your design. This would make your mehndi look different and give you an edge over others.
- Body Placement: An unusual but striking place to get this design done is below your neck because it gives more of a tattoo look. Small designs with glitter would also look good. Hands and feet are always there but only if you prefer a tattoo like a look.
- Pair with: You can wear this design if your outfit is not very colourful. A black saree needs such a design to compliment it. But make sure you wear the right colour bangles with respect to the colours you’ve used in your mehndi because you don’t want the colours to clash and cancel out.
3. Stone Work Teej Festival Mehndi:
The stonework is what women can die for. You might have seen ladies buying heavy stonework lehengas and sarees for the festive season. They are concerned even about the minute stones their jewellery piece has. So, for all those who love Kundan work and all, wouldn’t you be delighted to know that even your hands can get stonework done? The above image is of a mehndi design with rhinestones. For this design, fill in the area hence you want a stone with glitter, take the stone or kundan and press it on the glittered area such that it fits in and stays.
- Body Placement: You can start working from your toes to your ankle as shown beautifully in the picture. if you want it on your feet, this would also look good if fine work is done above and along the eyebrow line. The kundans should be of colours which match your dress and compliment your skin tone.
- Pair with: This is a very heavy design and can be a show stopper if you manage to choose your dress and jewellery wisely. For a stonework mehndi design, do not wear a stonework lehenga or saree if you want your hands and feet to be highlighted. Go for plain colours with soft materials with proper neckpiece and earrings. Again, avoid bangles because you don’t want your kundans to fall off. And do not forget that maangtika.
4. Rajasthani Style Teej Mehndi:
This is an image of Rajasthani style mehndi design. Rajasthani designs depict their culture and traditions. Rajasthani faces, peacock designs, etc are some of the elements in these designs. The beauty of this design type is that it covers your hand completely without any gaps. Therefore, it requires a lot of time, patience and fine skills to do these designs.
- Body Placement: This design is the most appropriate one for your hands and legs. There is nothing better if you get it done on both sides of your hand front and back. Brides mostly prefer this type of mehndi for their wedding. So, you can understand how grand and elegant this design is.
- Pair with: If you are wearing a pattu saree or a banarsi lehenga, this is the best mehndi design you can choose. Heavy jewellery and makeup would enhance the look.
5. Easy Teej Special S Shape Mehndi Design:
Arabic designs are loved for the trendy and stylish look they give. Unlike the orthodox Indian style of filling the entire hand with designs, this style of mehndi appreciates spaces and gaps. Arabic designs do not cover the entire hand or palm. They start from your index finger and take a curve down your palm giving an S- shape to your mehndi design. The plain area left out does give a contrast look.
- Body Placement: These mehndi designs look best only on your hand. They are infact meant for hands only because they are designed accordingly. Make sure you get that S-shape right and you can go on highlighting it with your favourite designs, provided that it is along the curve and doesn’t go out into the area left plain.
- Pair with: These designs look good when you are planning to wear a suit or a lehenga which does not have much work done and is simple. Gold jewellery doesn’t pair well with Arabic mehndi so try getting more silver jewellery. Choose colours like black, Blue, silver, etc. for your dress.
6. Freehand Mehandi Design for Teej:
Freehand mehndi designs are for those who love to accessorize. These are very simple designs that you can draw without needing a mehndi artist.
- Body Placement: Freehand suggests that you are free to not just create a design but also choose anybody place to be it neck, shoulders, forearm, etc.
- Pair with: If you are a bangle lover this mehndi is the best for you. You can wear as many bangles you want without having to worry about your mehndi being covered and going unnoticed. An idea of freestyle mehndi is you could create a mehndi ring and pull out a few strands till where your bangles start. Simple yet classy.
7. Peacock Face Mehndi Design for Teej:
Peacocks are magnificent. They are one of the most beautiful creations by nature. Peacocks included in mehendi designs enhance it to the extent that you just can’t stop admiring your hands.
- Body Placement: A peacock face with its head feathers in the centre surrounded by other design patterns is a very common design. You can also go for a peacock feather on the side of your hand.
- Pair with: If you are wearing a royal blue and green combination lehenga or a saree with these shades, you must try the peacock design for sure. You might have understood why we suggested this without a doubt.
8. Mandala Hand Teej Mehendi:
Now, this is an amazing design shown in the picture. We call it the mandala and bracelet combo. The circular design drawn at the centre of the hand is the mandala and the one on the wrist is the bracelet. This design won’t require bangles, rings, bracelets, etc.
- Body Placement: This can be repeated on the feet too. A mandala anklet combo would also be equally pretty. You can pair it with a thin pair of anklets if you wish.
- Pair with: This design would be best if you are wearing a plain saree with a big and heavy border. Tie all your hair in a bun and please! No bangles and bracelets. The mehndi itself does all the work.
9. Box Special Mehndi Design for Teej:
This is a new trend, called the boxed mehndi design. This design has squares filled with patterns drawn randomly here and there. We agree that it doesn’t sound appealing but once you get it done, you will have no regrets.
- Body Placement: This would look pretty only on your hand, feet and forearm as a small tattoo.
