Don't Despair, You Can Have Long Hair

Don’t Buy, Rent: Clip-On Extensions


Who wouldn’t luxuriate and rock some long locks? Clip-on extensions, though, are pricey and average around $250. The Nelson J salon offers a new option: clients rent their preferred extension for $75 for special occasions, including holiday and New Year's parties, Valentine's Day dates, weddings, and events where their hair plays an important role.

"Extensions are a great way to make a statement, without requiring permanent changes, but they are still costly," says  Nelson Chan, founder of Nelson j Salon in Beverly Hills (www.nelsonjsalon.com). "Spending around $250 to wear them for one evening is challenging for many budgets, so I thought a rental service would be a great option, but also allow someone to try more than one look during the course of a few months."  

What's Included
The $75 service includes styling/blow out and extension application, seven days of rental, and a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (S.A.S.E.) to return the extensions, which must be returned to the salon within seven calendar days in order to avoid being charged a penalty, which is the full value of the extensions. If the client wishes only to rent the extensions only (no styling/blow out or extension application), the fee is $40, which includes rental for seven days plus the S.A.S.E.

Type of Extensions Offered
The clip-on extensions for rent are made of 100% human hair and the client receives 30 extensions.

Customization of Wigs, Hair Pieces
Nelson j Salon also customizes wigs and hair pieces by offering cut, color and styling services. The hair piece or wig may be purchased separately.
