A pair of Elf Braids, curvy braids of which a single one makes gorgeous hair crowns and hair buns, too! Naturally this pair is perfect for wonderful pigtails! 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.
Made 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, 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.
Model Elf 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!
Elf Braids offers rich volume in a lightweight hair piece due to the crimped hair texture. One 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!
A single braid hair extension is about 90 cm/ 36 inches long, 7 cm/ 2.8 inches wide measured by one curve. You can vary the size a bit by braiding it more or less 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.
All hair pieces are delivered with detailed instructions for attachment, use and care.
Choose between two attachment options in the menu above. We recommend the professional attachment (2.) for this braid pair unless you have long and thick hair; up to the middle of your back and longer.
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 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.
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!

These braids are absolutely stunning. They look so realistic- my five year old daughter was very confused! I wear them both with fantasy costuming and mediaeval reenacting, they're light and comfortable enough to wear all day and they move just like real hair. I definitely recommend Melanie's fishtail add-on, when it's braided into my own hair it's impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.
Spectacular artistry as ever!
Note from Melanie at Magic Tribal Hair: Thank you, Bev, I am very happy to hear that you love your hair pieces! Just one note: These braids always come with the professional fishtail attachment! Just wanted to mention this, since customers who read this comment might get confused because they do not find an exta choice to add it ;). There are some braids that do come with a choice between classic and professional attachment, but not these ones.
