Start by making some phone calls. See when the manager is in, ask if
they'd considered having a henna artist. If they've never heard of
henna, polish up a two sentence description. It's likely they've
heard of it as there are "trendimehndi" stalls at nearly every trade
show, and to be honest, they'll likely think they have the situation
covered with their tubes of pre-mix and stencils that were force-fed
to them at the fingernail convention.

If you can get past that and ask for an appointment.

Walk in with a killer book of photos, and if possible, a resume' of
gigs you've done.

If you take rejection hard ...... I don't know what to say. Expect to
be rejected 9 out of 10 tries. That's just biz.
