Though there's more color and variety biking along the trail here in Houston, there is less color in the women's dress at church. I'm going to do a few posts where I show some pictures in the collection I started of women's head wraps in Lagos. I really love to see all the beautiful things that these women do with their head scarfs.
This first picture is of a contest at our company holiday party last December. They gave women pieces of this stiff fabric that they use for head wraps and had a contest to see the best and fastest wrap maker. It was pretty impressive how fast they could wrap this fabric into a really neat headpiece.
Ooh -- I can't remember the name of this next beautiful mom pictured -- this was after church this spring. But her solemn son is named Temple and the children in Primary were celebrating his first birthday this day.
This next picture was someone I don't know at Stake Conference. I loved her head wrap so I asked to take her picture.
And then there's more women at Stake Conference. Sometimes head wraps are coordinated with the dress, but other times they are not matched at all. Either way, I love to see the many styles and colors. They are as bright and cheery as the red birds on my Houston bike trail. Here in Texas, some women are known for their big hair -- in Lagos it's the big head wrap that gets noticed!
