Some scans of Omani Women's Regional Dress from a couple of Magazines

 The ones above can be purchased (or) rented from Aseel, in Qurum Complex, phone: 965 533 66. The ones below were adds for wedding photographers.
And an add for a make-up artist who does Dhofari-style wedding make-up:

I couldn't help but notice the black henna on the last photo. It's really popular here in UAE but difficult to find. I like the look of black henna but usually its hair dye mixed in and could really irritate the skin. I remember speaking to some people about henna and actually they put gasoline in it to help stick to the skin. Not sure how true that is...but a little scary.

Sarah Ali: Yes, black henna is not safe or Islamically pemrissisable. Usually for fashion shoot they use temporary tatoos or draw the deisgn on with pen anyways;)
