Long-lasting Hair Extensions
Braids by Magic Tribal Hair are super long-lasting hair pieces, because they can be opened, combed and braided again - they look like new every time you wear them, even if it's messy look - which is not the same as worn out ;)! This is a regular three strand braid, we've arranged the hair the way that you can braid is like a regular braid and this pattern will come out! This makes it very easy for you to rebraid it. This braid hair extension is about 50 cm/ 20 inches long and about 6 cm/ 2.4 inches wide measured by one curve.
Which hair does this braid match?
This natural braid matches fine, normal and thick hair and all hair textures from straight over wavy to curly as well. The hair in the braid is not straight, otherwise the braid wouldn't be this voluminous and messy stylings are hard to create with straight hair. So we work a basic hair dresser's trick and add curls to the hair which are not visible as curls when the braid is braided. So the braid and bun match straight and wavy hair, too.
Curls, Waves, Straight Hair - Let's Play With Texture!
Keep in mind that you pull your own hair back into a ponytail to attach the hair extension. this means one can hardly tell how thick or thin your own hair is, if you have lots of hair or few hair and even your hair texture is hard to recognize. This means you can indeed play with hair pieces and add curls to straight hair for a day - keep in mind you spare your hair the stressful perm!

All hair pieces are delivered with detailed instructions for attachment, use and care.
We offer our Elf Braid with professional fishtail attachment only, because it is the neatest way to attach this braid.
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.
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.
