I've never been great with the Nigerian Head Tie called "GELE", even though I was born and bred in Nigeria. Its just one of those things that"s been hard for me to wrap my head around.

Never one to let anything go without conquering it (or at least attempting to) I decided to get on YouTube to watch a couple of "how to videos". A couple video's later I summoned the courage to try my newly acquired skills

The result .....

Not bad right! Coral Necklace found HERE, Dress I bought 2 years ago from an online store that shut down a couple months back

With my tried and tested skills I decided to include an outfit with Gele in the recent photoshoot with Patty Ingalls. Here's a sneak peek at the result (P.S. Attempting it on the models head was a different ball game LOL).

I almost forgot to include a link to my favorite tutorial video, link HERE. The lady in the video is deceased but her knowledge and legacy live on. May her soul continue to rest in perfect peace.
