Tying the Twisted Fan Gele Headtie Yourself
You can see that this new gele style has no bells and whistles. It is both simple and exotic, so that no matter your preference with gele (big and flamboyant or simply chic), it will appeal to you. The headgear comes with minimal pleats at the base, featuring one or two lines of twists made with the gele fabric on one side of the face and fanning out on the side.
We were so smitten by how cute this new gele style looked that we even featured some of the best looks we spotted in the previous edition of our Gele Divas (a collection of best gele styles spotted on Nigerian Fashionistas).
If you practised along with the above video, how did that go? No to worry, it will become easier and quicker with a few more practices – just save this page and come back later to practice some more. That’s the spirit – most slay queens on Instagram learned how to slay.
