Braided headband Gretel, wide and extra flat braid, handmade to order in your hair color! The braid in this headband is about 50 cm/ 20 inches long which makes it easy to hide the elastic part and the ends under your own hair.
This headband braid is about 4.5 cm/ 1.8 inches wide - an extra wide but still flat braid. And a very lightweight hair piece, it weighs about 50 grams/ 1.8 oz only. For you if you love the Gretel headband style but go more for flatter headband braids than for the super chunky look!
This braided headband tiara of synthetic hair has our professional slip stop like all our wider headbands. This slip stop provides high wearing comfort, because it makes the headband stay in place. Moreover it makes your braid headband a long life item, because the friction when putting headbands on and off would pull out too much hair too quickly without such a supportive layer. Naturally the slip stop cannot be seen when you wear the hairband as it is on the inside only! Our slip stop is similar to the one of hold-up stockings or strapless bras.
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.
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.

I asked for white hair only! I was sent blond. Very disappointed.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that the color you picked yourself isn't a perfect match. I warmly recommend doing the FREE picture color check before placing your next order. You ordered hair color SW snow white, the whitest color I offer. This is what I made for you. SW is the whitest color in hair, actually an artificial color and not one that occurs without chemical treatment. But color perception differs strongly, maybe you would have needed NW natural white which many refer to as white, others as gray, others as silver gray... If you ask 10 people to name the same color, you are likely to get 10 different names, but with the picture color check you can't go wrong ;-). I will also send you a message to make sure you don't miss this information! Kind regards ~ Melanie & Magic Tribal Hair
