Many people believe that having a wide forehead is a sign of intelligence and great skills. I’m inclined to agree with them because very often, you find that successful people have wide foreheads. Celebrities like Rihanna, Rahma Sadau, Jennifer Anniston, Adesua Etomi are all successful people with large foreheads. They’re also very attractive as many people tend to say the most attractive women are the ones with wide foreheads. So what kind of gele styles are suited for wide foreheads?
Are you a woman with a wide forehead? Yes? Come closer, how many times have you heard the “I could land a plane here/ park a car here” joke. Or the famous “is that a mirror? I can see my reflection”
Yeah I know, it gets tiring and sometimes annoying, but I’m sure you’ve also heard that girls with wide foreheads are the prettiest. So, if you’re a fellow forehead gang person, you’re in good company. To many women, Gele is a wardrobe essential they can’t live without.
With regards to the gele styles; there are many major gele styles we have for wide foreheads.
1. Zahra Buhari Turban
This is one of the gele Gele styles for wide foreheads that went viral again after Zahra Buhari was seen rocking it. It starts from the front and goes back to hold together at the back and comes down halfway towards your brows so it covers most of your forehead.
2. The V Round Gele
This is a kind of gele that starts from the back and meets at the middle of the forehead to form a V shape. Because of the V shape in the middle of the head, it gives an illusion of a slimmer forehead compared to the round gele. It doesn’t end there,
There is so much drama going on after it meets at the forehead. People experiment by making ruffles on it.
3. Turbans with a Twist
This style generally fits everyone and some also have the V shape. It also starts the same way the V round gele starts, to meet at the forehead and form a V shape.
There are some that come with a bun on top of the head and this is perfect for the forehead gang. Some have a rose on top of it while others have a bow tie.
4. Rose Gele Style
This kind of gele has a rose on top of it. It starts off as normal gele tying with several layers of upon layers and ends with a rose on top of it.
This creates a kind of canopy on top of the head and covers part of the forehead too. It takes the attention away from your forehead to the rose.
5. The Tie Back Style
This is one of the Gele styles for wide foreheads done with a silk scarf or material scarf that is easy to manipulate. It involves tying your head while covering over half of your forehead and forming a knot at the back.
This knot can either be small or large depending on how a person wants it. It covers most of your forehead and looks great.
6. Zahra Buhari Fan Gele
This is like the Zahra Buhari turban but it has much more activity than the Zahra turban. It has a fan-like shape above that opens.
It also covers the forehead more than the Zahra Buhari turban does.
7. Double Twist Headwrap
This kind of headwrap is done using a very long scarf. It doesn’t necessarily have to be wide, length is what makes it what it is.
It starts with you tying your scarf at the back, then twisting the remaining ends of the scarf and bringing it over your head to form a kind of crown over the already tied scarf.
8. Messy Bun Head Wrap
This gele style for people with wide foreheads is done with a scarf that’s easy to manipulate, such as a cotton scarf. To achieve the messy bun, you’re to tie your scarf at the front of your head, directly above the forehead then you’ll grab one end of the scarf and fold it into your scarf so that it’ll look like a bun and to hold it together, you’ll use the other end of the scarf and tie around the bun so it’ll stay put.
The bun could be as big as you want it, other people go ahead to even put another scarf under their head to make the bun bigger.
9. Twist Gele
This kind of gele gives a very dramatic look and is very easy to create. All you need to do is twist your scarf thoroughly and wrap it around your head as many times as it allows you, i.e according to the length of the scarf.
In the end, you tie it to keep it in place.
10. The African Aunty Gele
This is the most dramatic of all. It covers over half of your forehead, reaching the top one eyebrow. Only one side comes down to the eyebrows, thereby making it look slanted, as though it is going to fall.
This has been the style for so many years and seems to be coming back now as aunties are seen rocking it here and there. It gives the rich Aunty vibes.
Wide foreheads are in vogue, there’s so much space for your make up, not to mention you get the cutest hairstyles and gele styles. You can literally see the forehead popping after making your hair.
