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.

How to give us perfect color instruction in 3 steps only, with the help of the menus above

The price includes a custom mix of up to 3 basic colors, a fourth or fifth color can be added at extra costs. Some special colors also cost extra, you will see this in the menu.

1st menu HAIR COLOR, choose your colors or enter "advice needed".

Press Ctrl and click all the colors you wish to choose for your hair piece. If you need more than 3 colors, choose the upgrades 4th or 4th and 5th color from the drop down menu, so the extra fees are added. If you forget this, we will send you a manual invoice for the extra fees and delivery will be delayed, because we can only start making your hair piece after this second invoice has been paid.
Option: If you want to make your purchase, but still need our support in choosing the best color match, choose "Advice needed!" instead. In this case delivery time cannot be met, because we can only start making your order when all information is complete. If extra costs because of a 4th or 5th color or special colors occur, we will send you a manual invoice and delivery time will only start after payment for this second invoice has been effected.

2nd box for optional color proportions "Insert proportions for colors if desired here"

If you wish more of one color and less of another use the little message box to insert desired proportions (e.g. 2/3 of color 8 and 1/3 of color 30). When you leave this box free, we will use equal proportions of all colors.

3rd menu "details for color mix"

Tick one of the checkboxes. If you wish several colors in a fine blend and one to be added as highlights, use the message box for proportions to tell us which one the hightlight color is.

Amazing! Such a wonderful experience ordering from Melanie. I thought I might need it rush delivered and she was so helpful. Ended up not needing to and still got the braid I ordered in plenty of time for the first date! She also gave me great advice for what colors to use to match my hair. I wore it this weekend and everyone was asking how I got my hair to do that! I had to tell them it was fake, and one person didn’t believe me! 10 out of 10 I will definitely be ordering from Melanie again!

I use several hair crowns from this site since I discoverd it. The colour matches , it's perfectly natural , it does not slip. Actually it is the best site I founded. I would say they are practical but they are beyond that aspect. Because you look always stylish . In a review of another product in this site I told I take it even to ski: My sports are padel and ballet also and got so used I never take them off.
My first intention was to wear in parties: of course, I still do it , the bigger the better. Because you can use earrings and it's not too much " information", as you are actually not wearing a band as an accessorize.

Really I only receive compliments. I'm getting vain.
