New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: The festival of Hariyali Teej is right around the corner and is falling on August 11. On this day, both married and single women dress up, sing songs, observe vrat, perform puja and apply mehendi (henna) in their hands to celebrate the festival.

This is one of the most fun festivals for women in Hindus. As they get to dress up in green color traditional outfits, wear 16 ornaments (Solah Shringaar), dance, sing and swing. Apart from dresses, are number of elements/Shringara items which women put on for the special occasion like bangles, earrings, bindi and more. Including these ornaments, one of the most important things which completes the look for this day is mehendi.

Aren't these beautiful?

Fun fact: According to popular beliefs, it is said that the colour of mehendi defines the amount of love your husband or to-be husband is going to give you. For example, if your mehendi turns out to be of a darker shade, you will be loved more than if your mehendi is of a lighter shade. 

So guys, which one out of the above do you like the most?
