Perfect for rustic weddings as bride tiara hair piece and for everyday hairstyles as well. Since we match it to your hair color, no-one will think you are wearing a headband of synthetic hair!

3.5 cm/ 1.4 inches width is not what you are looking for? We have this classic braid headband in smaller and larger braid widths in other listings!

Available with our slip-stop!

The slip-stop for wider braided headbands is a unique offer at Magic Tribal Hair. Our slip-stop is applied to the bottom of the braid, so it is completely invisible when you wear your braid headband. It is similar to the one of hold-up stockings or strapless bras. It helpds to make the braid stay in place on the middle of your head especially with straight hair.

Moreover it makes your braid headband last longer, because it seals a part of the hair in the braid in full length which helps the braid to stay in shape. This means hair will pull out slower from a hairband braid with slip-stop compared to the same hairband braid model without slip-stop.


Our braid headbands fit every head!

The braided headband comes with a generous elastic part, so it will not be too small. If the hairband is too big, you can simply and quickly sew it smaller by hand with just a few stitches on the elastic part! Did you know that headbands slipping to the back of your head usually simply are too small for your head? Most women who know this problem assume that the shape of their head causes the headband to slip, but in most cases the headband is just too small. That is why we have you adapt the fit and deliver it rather a bit too loose than too tight!

We only use Kanekalon hair - best quality in synthetic hair! 

Kanekalon hair has a real touch feeling, a natural shine and is very carefree. You can wash your headband in lukewarm water with a mild shampoo. Put the shampoo in the basin and let the headband soak in the shampoed water, don't rub or squeeze it. Put it on a thick towel to let it drip-dry.

Please understand that this personalized item is made to order especially for you and cannot be returned! Read all details in our general terms and conditions.

Some product pictures show how to combine this hair piece with other hair jewelry or hair pieces. These items must be purchased extra.

Hair Color

Your hair color can be matched perfectly including highlights, lowlights and all shades, because all braided headbands are made to order exclusively! One's own hair usually contains 2-3 colors (only dark hair often consists of 1 color only), hence we include up to 3 colors in the price. Headbands should be matched to the upper parts of your hair only, because that is the part of your own hair they meet when you wear them.

Je porte ce headband très souvent lors de sortie ou encore pour aller avec mes coiffures plus sophistiquées. Il s'accorde avec tout. J'adore son style et la couleur est parfaite, la qualité au top! Je suis trop contente de mon achat!

Looks like real hair and blends perfectly with my hair! This will definitely save me time on my wedding day, I can't wait to wear it!

I used the rustic braid headband Gretel for nearly 4 years and it's very easy to put on and fix it. It goes well with a everyday look (I wore it with my hair open around it). If you conceal the elastic with your own hair, it's great for an easy updo, because the colour (if well chosen) looks very natural and everybody will think it is your own hair.

Truly so happy with the quality of the braid. Thick and very sturdy, no fly-away hairs at all. The help and customer service I have received has also been so brilliant!

I just tried out the headband braid "Gretel" and I'm very happy with the product! The headband is very easy to wear, and my own hair (which are rather short at the moment are easy to fix under the elastic band. The haircolour I have chosen (3 colours mixed together) makes the braid look very natural, it fits my own haircolour very well!

Incredible customer service and product

This arrived in about two weeks and Melanie was helpful in the input of which colors to choose. Headband is comfortable and doesn't slip. The headband helped me fulfill my fantasy of Princess Leaia Endor hair. Thanks!

I can have a braid in my hair without actually braiding it and the braid matches my hair color
