Get a bucketful of styling options with these easy to handle clip-in hair extension braids! These accent braids in messy look are 45 cm/ 18 inches long and 3 cm/ 1.2 inches wide per braided braid. You can vary the width slightly by braiding them more compactly to make them smaller or more loosely for more volume.
Add some styling magic to your own, long hair with 1, 2, 3 ... or even more messy accent braids! Or combine them with a bun or updo hairstyle - wear them down as long braids or wrap a braid around the bun to make your bun larger or give it an even more fancy look. Naturally you can combine them with a bun or updo of your own hair just like with another hair piece.
These undone look braids are handmade and custom matched to your hair color - naturally you are free to choose crazy colors as well!
The length of these hair extensions can be matched to your own hair, just tell us your exact length in the optional "exact length" box in the menu if you need shorter braids than 45 cm/ 18 inches. Don't forget to add a little length in case you are still growing your hair, to ensure these long-lasting hair extensions won't be too short, soon!
Select your desired set size - read below why the messy braids pair, three and four pieces come with an amazing discount!
Naturally you can also combine these clip extensions with a matching messy braid headband or mix them with clip in dreadlocks just like shown in some pictures (not included in this listing, must be purchased extra).
Which hair do these messy braids go best with?
these braids look very natural in straight, wavy and curly hair and match all thicknesses as well. You can wear them in fine and/ or thin hair, regular and thick hair. They are most visible in straight and wavy hair and tend to hide a bit in thick hair, especiall if you have both, thick and curly hair. For a most natural look in straight hair you might prefer our clip-in accent braids made of wavy hair but if you like the higher contrast, the messy ones work well.
Please note that the beginnings of the hair are bonded and these bondings tend to stand out a bit and especially with fine and thin and with straight hair. Please attach them 2-3 cm/ about 1 inch beneath your parting and not on top of it. Still the bondings might be slightly visible in fine, thin and very straight hair when you wear them in open hair.
You can hide the clips and bondings perfectly in all kinds of hair when you use the accent braid as bun wrap or as decoration in an updo.
Mix these messy accent braids with clip-in extensions of wavy hair, your minimum hair length are 5 cm/ 2 inches only! More information with clip-ins with waves here.
When you braid the hair of two clip-ins together (see third picture) you will get a braid of the same volume as with long, fine hair. Please keep in mind that you'd need to attach the braid at the back of your head or in the neck and complete the illusion with a headdress. The braid is flat, so a hat fits perfectly over it.
Long-lasting hair pieces
These Magic Tribal Hair clip-in accent braids are very long-lasting, because you can unbraid them, comb the hair and braid them again. They will always look like freshly styled and new when you do this! The ends of the braids are closed with hair ties you can use again. The braids are made of slightly wavy hair which is easy to comb and braid. You needn't braid them when attached to your head, just make it easy for you and do this when you are not wearing them and attach them already braided!
What these clip-in braids won't do:
These braids look very natural in your own, long hair. But they are too thin to make one of these braids like a long, single ponytail off all your own hair. Two of them braided together look like fine, own long hair, more info above in the details about short hair.
You shouldn't use these pieces for braiding together with your own, long hair, it is possible, but not comfortable to wear. For enhancing your own braid our paranda style braid hair filler is the perfect hairpiece!
You shouldn't wear the hair of these braids unbraided as highlight strands, please use our clip-in extensions of wavy hair for this purpose. The thing is you will need to comb hair extensions that are worn unbraided more often. The more often a hair piece needs to be combed, the more solid the bonding part on top must be, in order not to lose any hair. We use more hair in the braid clip-ins than in the open clip-ins which means the bonding part of the braid clip-ins is a little less solid. But we need more hair to have nice volume for the braids and when only worn braided, the bonding part is as solid as it needs to be.
Why is one messy braid so pricy in comparison to the larger sets?
Everthing is done by hand, we add the texture (here smaller waves) to the hair and blend your personal hair color. This costs the same time for 1 piece as for 4 or more, hence the high basic price for 1 piece.
This means that all braids in your set must have the same hair color blend. So if you need two braids in your hair color and another pair in blue, then you need to order 2 sets.
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, hair pieces, braided headbands etc.. These items must be purchased extra.
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.
This professional clip attachment is very easy to handle we show it with different clip-in braids in the picture, but the clips are the same, so the attachment works the same way!
Open the clip by pressing it slightly at both sides - the little comb part moves backwards leaving a gap - the clip is open. Take a thin strand of your hair and push in the little comb of the clip and push it up to the scalp, so it will not move and cannot pull or tweak. Press again at the sides to close.
Always take a strand a little below your parting (see pictures with fairer hair below), so there will be some hair on top to cover the clip. Naturally you can also attach it to other places on your head!
Take a very thin strand of hair only, if you take too much, the clip won't close properly. Do the pull test by pulling the extension. Does it hardly move? Then you did it just right! If it moves much more than 1 cm/ 0.4 inches, you took too much hair, so try a thinner strand in this case. Our clips are from professional wig production and they are made for use with thin/ fine hair and provide very strong hold!
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 2 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.
