Who Is Naomi Jon? New Details About The YouTuber Who Gave Herself Henna Freckles That Went Very Wrong

YouTube star Naomi Jon just went viral for her video of self-applied henna freckles gone bad.

The 22-year-old German-born YouTube star with 624,000 subscribers released a video on Dec. 9 that showed herself applying a gold bottle of a long-lasting henna tattoo on to her face in dots to resemble freckles.

After applying the henna in little dots all over her face, Jon noticed her skin was burning and turning very red. 

Jon decided to attempt to cover up the very red and inflamed henna with a very pigmented foundation, however, it did not hide the fake freckles at all.

“I’ll have to call in sick from work tomorrow,” Jon said because of the terrible condition of her face and that foundation was no match for the henna.

The video, which now has over 1.5 million views on YouTube, opens with Jon telling the story of how she met the Instagram star who she got the idea and product information from.

"I saw this video on Instagram ages ago where this girl gave herself permanent freckles with henna, I loved it,” Jon said to Cosmopolitan magazine.

Jon made sure to buy the same product Uglysxegirl used in her Instagram video. She bought the Golecha traditional color henna product from eBay just as the girl in the Instagram video told her.

At the end of the video, Jon tells the viewers not to recreate the look and that she “regrets everything.”

About two days after the video went live, Jon posted an Instagram picture of her face with makeup on and seemed to be in better spirits. The picture captioned with “henna freckles aftermath” shows her face with very light freckles and no more red skin.

Jon is very successful on Tik Tok, the musical app that lets you lip sing to popular songs, where she holds an impressive 1.5 million followers. This jump-started her career on YouTube and led to her rise to fame on this platform. Jon typically creates videos about makeup and beauty and is famous for her very transformative looks.

Prior to the fake freckle fail, she posted a video to her YouTube channel about dying her entire head neon orange which now has 684,000 views.
