We are unable to replace or exchange an item until the original parcel is returned to Ariela London. If you need an item in a hurry, we suggest you place a second order for the new item and send the original back at a later date.
Sometimes and especially if goods are purchased in advance for a present or delivered whilst on holiday, aforementioned 14 day response time scales can be missed. Therefore, without prejudice and as a gesture of goodwill, we are happy to consider the following remedy on a case by case basis:
Should an item not be required and is returned and received by us between 14 working days and 30 calendar days, we will be happy to accept the item(s) back with refund of goods to the value of 70% of the purchase price (excluding shipping) or refund of 100% if taken as a gift certificate or coupon redeemable in the future at Ariela London. Should an item be returned and received after 30 calendar days, we will have no obligation to refund. If you wish the item resent to you, we will ask for a nominal fee to cover additional shipping costs.
14 working days from receipt of delivery shall be defined as the date from when your shipment is received by yourself, being the date of signature that the package is received by you.
If product appears faulty due to quality issues, the fault must be reported to us via our Returns Form within 7 days of the receipt date. Returns must be made within 7 days of the complaint being made. Should we find the item to be faulty upon return, delivery costs will be compensated at a capped rate depending on the weight of the parcel and the location it is being returned from. Please contact us to confirm this rate before sending the item back to us.
Please note, all hair extensions must be returned still attached to the original card and binds. If you have removed the original card or binds, we are unable to re-sell the item as new and therefore will not accept returns on the item.
We take pride in adhering to strict quality control procedures. On the rare occasion that you may receive faulty hair extensions, this must be reported within a maximum of 30 days of the receipt date; This is due to human hair being a consumable item during wear. We only recommend the use of Nude London Aftercare products with Ariela Hair or Nude London hair extensions and cannot guarantee the quality of any Ariela Hair or Nude London hair extensions with other formulas. Nude London Aftercare products must be purchased at the time of purchasing the hair extensions. Any hair returned to be tested for alleged quality issues must be accompanied by original proof of purchase for both the hair extensions and aftercare products.
As well as the Returns Form, all hair extension returns also require a fully completed Hair Report Form. Any goods received without the appropriate paperwork will not be processed until the correct paperwork is received. Failure to provide the completed paperwork within 90 days will result in the goods being disposed of.
We will not test any hair extensions that have been coloured, tinted or chemically altered; all hair extensions must be returned in the original product colour. Hair extensions must be posted back to us within 7 days of the complaint being made (proof of delivery will be required), and will then be examined and inspected. Goods are not considered faulty if their condition deteriorates due to poor hair management or poor application of extensions. If no fault is present, or the hair has been damaged, coloured or altered in any way, the goods will be returned to the customer at your cost and we will not issue a refund or replace the goods. Please note that testing of faulty hair extensions can take up to 30 days depending on whether the hair can be tested at our London headquarters or if it requires testing by our factory partners.
We cannot guarantee the use of Ariela Hair or Nude London hair extensions whilst on holiday/in warmer climates for various reasons, including discolouration of the hair when coming into contact with swimming pool chlorine and the hair drying out through excess heat. We strongly advise all customers using hair extensions to avoid both submerging hair in chlorine and sea water as this can damage hair and hair colour. Use a hard water treatment, hair care containing SPF sun protection, tie hair up and cover with a swimming cap as a precaution.
Any colouring of Nude London hair extensions is done entirely at the customers own risk and we will not test, refund or exchange any extensions that have been coloured, dyed, toned or tinted.
Ariela London will not be held responsible for any hair extensions that have been exposed to heat damage by the customer.
Ariela London will not be held responsible for any additional expenses due to faulty goods e.g. loss of income or removal/re-application costs.
