Hey Ladies! Bring out your head ties because you are going to be transported to a new era of African head wraps with this post.
Head ties are a very important part of many social functions in Africa, especially Nigeria. It is an integral part of the aso-ebi wearing as it sits on various shapes of head in different styles. You ain’t complete till you imprison your ears under a tightly secured gele girl!
In recent times, more women have sharpened their gele tying skills many thanks to you tube videos and instagram tutorials (you are all highly appreciated) However the entire gele styling game has attained a whole new height. I call it the GELEVOLUTION.
THE Gelevolution is a movement from the “shut up” “satellite” and “face your husband” styles of tying that hard cardboard like strip on our heads to new inventions gele artists have begun spinning out on social media.
