In 2001, Akiyo flipped through an art mag and paused at a picture that would become the catalyst for a new passion. A henna design, with its bold and elegant statement, had bewitched her artist’s eye.  With a background in fashion textile, the desire to learn the language of henna developed into a mastery of the art form.

Akiyo Henna, Inc. was founded in 2009, offering both traditional henna application and a more modern, glamorous interpretation through Luxe Glow™ and the use of luminous, metallic colors and Swarovski crystals. Clients include (but are not limited to) South Asian or American brides, mothers-to-be, those wishing to cover a scar or embellish a bald head due to illness. Akiyo strives to empower all women through this unique celebration of the body.
