Rapunzel Braid is a playful braid which makes gorgeous hair crowns and hair buns, too! The hair in this braid comes with slightly crimped texture which is much straighter in extra long hair compared to short hair up to 55 cm/ 22 inches. So the hair looks nearly straight when braided. The two braids in the braid are sealed and won't open. When you rebraid the braid, they just run with the flow!
Make this braid even more fantasy-style by picking a different hair color for the two interwoven braids - to have the big braid match your hair color and the interwoven ones your outfit!
Handmade to order and custom-matched to your hair color.

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! This is a regular three strand braid, you can rebraid it like any other regular 3 strand braid; the braided plaits in the braid just run with the flow!
Model Rapunzel 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!
Rapunzel Braid offers rich volume in a lightweight hair piece due to the crimped hair texture. The plait weighs about 130 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 90 cm/ 36 inches long, 5 cm/ 2 inches wide.

All hair pieces are delivered with detailed instructions for attachment, use and care.
Choose between two attachment options in the menu above. We warmly recommend the professional attachment for this extra long hair extension(s).
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. This is the most time consuming attachment and you need some additional hair jewelry to cover the attachment properly and hide the bonding part where the hair is bonded with glue. Still this is a popular way of attachment for many customers.
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 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.
One's own hair usually consists of 2-3 colors, but for technical reasons with this extra long hair, we can only offer a mix of maximum 2 colors. So we include up 1-2 colors in the price. Colors can only be roughly blended, which results in a highlight mix when you choose two colors. If you don't want that, choose 1 color only.
This means we might not be able to match your hair color for this extra long hair piece 100 %, but we can get very close. Feel free to check before your order how close we can get with our match. If you are not happy with that, you can still choose a shorter fall - we can always offer a 100 % match for 55 cm/ 22 inches hair falls!
How to give us perfect color instruction in 2 steps only, with the help of the menus above
The price includes a custom mix of up to 2 basic colors.
1st menu HAIR COLOR, choose your colors or enter "advice needed".

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.

Melanie is great to work with! I ordered this Rapunzel Braid for Halloween and she was able to ship it to me quickly. The braid is incredible. It blends in well with my own hair and color. When I dress up as Rapunzel I always get questions about where I got my braid. And Melanie reminded me I purchased it in 2013. It still looks great! She is a talented artist and I have had so much fun with it. When I needed more fun hair accessories and extensions I contacted her first. Thank you Melanie for sharing your creative talent with others! Sincerely, Tonya
