How To Tie Nigerian Gele In Six Steps
We mostly watch ladies in events wearing gele and most of us wonder how creative they must have been to tie that fashion accessory.
It is not difficult; this is the reason why we want you to learn it in six simple steps. You can give it a trial.
Six Steps To Follow:
STEP 1: Make small folds of three at the longest edge of one part of your gele. You can use your lap in sharpening the folds if using scarf.
STEP 2: Using the folded ends, set your gele on your front head with the short length on your left and the long length on your right
STEP3: Make a tie round, holding the short length with your right hand, hold tight ( get someone to help you if you wish).
Then wrap the long length round the back of the head until it gets to the front head to meet up the short length you where holding
STEP 4 : Tie the two lengths together using the edge of the long length for the tie with the short one.
STEP 5: Start building the gele shaping it anyway you want it.
STEP 6: Using both hands on the very first layer of gele in front, slightly pull the gele to the back showing steps of round wraps and you are done.
Step 1: Spread out the "gele"
You should spread out the Aso-Oke and tie on the head firmly, like you would tie a typical head scarf.
Step 2: Tying the base of the "gele"
You need to have a very strong base
To ensure this, place the aso-oke firmly on your head and tie the back of the scarf ( the two ends),into a knot, like you would tie a typical headscarf.
Make sure it is tight enough, but be cautious not to make it too tight, because you can get a headache if it is too tight.
