Fantasy Braid a voluminous braid which makes gorgeous hair buns, too!
The two smaller braids in the braid (pre-sealed, so they won't open!) just run with the flow when you rebraid the braid! Hot tip for fantasy styles: Pick a different color for the interwoven braids to have the big braid match your hair color and the interwoven ones your outfit!

Braids by Magic Tribal Hair are super long-lasting hair pieces, because they can be opened, combed and braided again (or twisted as a twist braid) - they look like new every time you wear them! Never wear a fringy braid again!
Model Fantasy Braid is a real allrounder and popular for festive and formal occassions like weddings (especially for the bride and bridesmaids), proms but also for costuming (Larp and Cosplay) and underground looks like Goth and steampunk!
Fantasy Braid offers rich volume in a lightweight hair piece due to the crimped hair texture. The plait weighs about 100 grams only!
Crimped hair has very small zigzag waves, hence the big volume. Crimped hair is very easy to braid and braids of crimped hair make great, voluminous buns/ chignons, too. The bun is simply made by pinning up the attached plait - just like making a bun of your own hair! Buns from hair pieces of crimped hair are bigger and more fluffy than buns of all other hair textures!
This braid hair extension is about 50 cm/ 20 inches long, 7 cm/ 2.8 inches wide and 3.5 cm/ 1.4 inches thick when braided. You can vary the size a bit by braiding it more or less tight.
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, clip-in hair pieces etc.. These items must be purchased extra.
We only use Kanekalon hair - best quality in synthetic hair!
Kanekalon hair has a real touch feeling, a natural shine and is very carefree.
All hair pieces are delivered with detailed instructions for attachment, use and care.
Choose between two attachment options in the menu above:
1. Basic Attachment = strong hair tie
You can choose the basic attachment, if your hair is longer than shoulder long and if you don't have fine/ thin hair. Still the fishtail attachment is most practical for braids and never too much, you can add it for any hair length!
There are several ways to use the basic hair tie attachment:
1. The braid is opened, attached to your own ponytail and braided together with your own hair, see pictures with blonde haired doll below. As you have to braid the braid tightly to prevent your own hair from slipping out, the Fantasy Braid will loose its great volume and will look different. That is why we do not recommend this attachment method for this kind of braid.
2. Attach the braid braided to your own ponytail. Your own hair is used to counter-secure the hair fall by being wrapped around the attachment and being secured with hair pins (see first row with black braid). You can also braid your hair before wrapping it around (see second row with blonde lady). This makes an even nicer finish and it is easier to secure and less stressful for your own hair.
2. Professional Fishtail Attachment = strong hair tie and two additional strands of hair which complement your own hair so you have more to wrap around the attachment. The recommended attachment for our Fantasy Braid!
This means it's much easier to
1st secure the hair extension and
2nd to cover the junction of your own hair and the synthetic hair!
The direct fusion of your own hair and the additional hair of the fishtail attachment offers maximum hold and is the most natural looking way to attach a hair piece!
This fishtail attachment upgrade provides extra strong hold (i.e. needed for acting and dancing) and most customers find it more comfortable to wear and easier to handle than the basic attachment. I named it fishtail attachment, because the two extra strands reminded me of the shape of a fishtail when I created this attachment method.
The fishtail attachment is highly recommended when you have thin/ fine hair or hair shorter than shoulder long. As it is never too much, you can even add it, if your hair is shoulder long or longer, of course. It is also nice to have, if you like the small buns which occur when the fishtail attachment is used.

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.

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.

Combined with the braided headband and alone, it is gorgeous on. Thank you
The custom mixed color matches my hair exactly! Thank you for that perfect work. I find that the braiding was done a little to loose as even after the first use it already looked "frizzled" - was easy to fix by a little re-braiding, so no big deal. now I love it an even got very nice compliments for it already.
Reply from Melanie at Magic Tribal Hair: Yes, this is correct, a Magic Tribal Hair braid is just like a braid of your own hair. A braid of your own hair also looks a bit fringy at the end of the day with hair pulled out. But great you read my instructions for use and care enclosed and saw that you can unbraid your braid, comb the hair and rebraid it. Just like you would do it with a braid of your own hair at the end of the day ;-). If you always do this after wearing for a day, your braid can last several years, so it`s worth the effort.
