Sure, we may be guilty of renting the occasional dress, maybe even a bag or two if we're eyeing a particular clutch — but, would we go far enough to rent...hair?! We never thought we would ever have to contemplate this particular dilemma — up 'til now, that is. For the upcoming holiday season, Nelson j Salon in Beverly Hills is launching a service to rent clip-on hair extensions for $75, saving rentees almost $200.

“Extensions are a great way to make a statement, without requiring permanent changes, but they are still costly,” says celebrity stylist Nelson Chan, founder of Nelson j Salon. "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, you ask? The $75 covers the styling/blowout and extension application, seven days of rental, and a self-addressed stamped envelope to return the extensions. The pieces are made of 100% human hair and come in packs of 30.
So, now that you've heard all the details, tell us: Would you rent hair?
