Emerging Gele Styles

Nigerians are exceptional people , we pick up on trends and follow through to the letter , we take the liberty to add some spice and boom – everyone one is doing it .Does the Azonto dance fit into this case study? – yes , does the word bae fit into this case study ? – yes ; need I go on? .

Another of such trends which is thankfully ours is gele tieing.Head-wrap called gele is usually tied by the Yoruba woman but not anymore.Every tribe , well almost every tribe now tie gele to occasions and very typical of Nigerians- have added their own spice.

Gele has a way of accentuating a woman’s look and making her look regal.There are various styles, it all boils down to preference. .Another trend is a few makeup artists have started showcasing Avarde Garde gele style .Some of these makeup artists are Mr Segun Gele, Ojulewa , Tayo of slush makeover, Funmi of Abeke Makeovers to mention a few…
