The art of Gele

If you're not a Nigerian woman, you may have wondered how Gele's (Nigerian headwraps) are fashioned. Its a complex and ever-changing art form.. This is a Senegalese friend just before a wedding in Lagos earlier this year.

Hey Jeremy,
Thanks for posting the video. The gele really looks nice. I bet it would take me hours of practice to achieve that effect;)

I have been a fan of your blog for about a year now, and I visit daily. You as well as NVS have rekindled hope for Nigeria's future in me. Keep those original posts coming!!!!
