Jeddah: Henna Beard

It is not uncommon to see Muslim men with bright red hennaed beards or hair here in Saudi Arabia. Henna is also used by women to color their hair or as a temporary dye on the skin of the hands and arms in intricate designs to celebrate marriage.  Since henna is not permanent, it is approved for use according to Islam.

I think this just looks weird.

I've heard of henna decorating the skin, but I was unaware of it as a hair colour.
