Rapunzel Braid in messy style is a playful braid with 2 interwoven braids in the braid. This Rapunzel hair extension makes gorgeous hair buns, too! This hair extension is a real eye-catcher and won't be unveiled as hair piece, because we handmake it in your hair color. The messy style also looks very realistic and has a nice volume, although the braid is not heavy. It weighs about 120 grams/ 4.2 oz including the professional attachment.
This braid hair piece is about 50 cm/ 22 inches long and ca. 6 cm/ 2.4 inches wide, you can vary the width slightly bay braiding it more tighly or loosely. For the undone look you would want to braid the braid more loosely though, with the 6 cm/ 2.4 inches width as seen in the pictures.
The Messy Rapunzel Braid is a multi talent and due to it's fancy and noble look it's very popular with many occasions: Weddings for bridal hairdoes but also for bridesmaids, for goindg out, as prom hairstyle and also for cosplay, medieval and fantasy larp costumes.
Multi-Styling Hair Piece
Attach the braid and pin it up into a gorgeous messy bun! The two smaller interwoven braids in the braid add a special look to the chignon hairstyle, too. Naturally these smaller braids are sealed, so they won't open. When you rebraid the entire braid after wearing you just let the smaller braids run with the flow, it's super easy.
Long-lasting Hair Extensions
Braids by Magic Tribal Hair are very long-lasting, because you can unbraid them, comb the hair and braid them again. Which will make your braids look exactly the wanted messy style and not the worn out style we don't like.
Which Hair Does This Braid Match
This braid is a great match for all hair textures: straight, wavy and curly hair. The hair in the braid is not straight, otherwise the braid would not be this lush. Moreover messy stylings are not easy to make with straight hair. We simply work with a basic hairdresser's trick and add some texture to the hair and in this case it's curls. You cannot really see them in the braided braid, hence the braid ponytail is a match to all hair textures, even to straight and wavy hair.
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.
Choose between two attachment options above. For this braid I do not recommend braiding your own hair into the braid. This would mean you have to braid the braid quite tight which won't look very messy. The braid looks best when you braid it loosely and pull some hair even more out to the sides. So technically you can braid your own hair into this braid but this will reduce the messy and undone look a lot. I also recommend the professional attachment for this thicker braid.
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.
