Authentic Extensions upholds a very high level of quality control, ensuring all of our clients receive authentic hair extensions and lace products.
All of our hair products are sourced directly from Southeast Asia and are prepared by very skilled craftsmen. As part of our quality assurance measures, every order is inspected before shipping in order to maintain the high standard requirements of our customers.
Due to the nature of our hair products, all sales are final. Refunds are not permitted, however exchanges may be accepted upon inspection within 3 working days from receipt of delivery excluding lace frontals and lace closures.
Exchange requests should be sent via email to email@example.com. We endeavour to deal with requests for exchanges within 10 working days.
We only exchange products if they are defective or damaged. To be eligible for an exchange, your item must be returned in its original shipped condition and packaging. We will not accept any exchanges of hair extensions where the bundle weft has been unraveled and the hang tags must still be attached.
Please note, we deserve the right to refuse an exchange for hair that has been combed or tampered with and please ensure you select the correct lengths as exchanges will not be issued for this. In addition, exchanges will not be issued by the dissatisfaction of colour, split ends, shedding or any other concerns that are typical with natural virgin hair products.
We must receive the merchandise before an exchange can be made. All shipping and handling costs will be at the customer’s expense.
Shipping Back to Us
All shipping and handling costs will be at the customer’s expense and are non-refundable. To return your item for an exchange, an address will be provided for you. Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you may vary. If you are returning an item for an exchange, you must use a traceable shipping service or purchase shipping insurance as we cannot guarantee that we will receive your returned item and are not responsible for lost packages.
In order for your order to be processed and dispatched, we must receive an authorised credit or debit card with the same billing and shipping address. Any orders with different billing and postal addresses will be put on hold to which we will then request that you provide us proof of address in form of a government issued identification document (ID) or any supporting documentation of the alternative address before your order is processed. This information must be submitted within 48 hours of placing the order.
Failure to provide the necessary information will result in your order being cancelled. Orders are processed securely online using a valid credit or debit card. Payments are taken in advance at the checkout before your order is processed. A confirmation email will be sent to you once your order is approved.
You can pay with credit or debit cards. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Visa Electron and Maestro enabled debit cards.
If you are a PayPal user, you can pay via PayPal without having to enter your credit card details on the website.
At checkout, you can choose Klarna as your payment method. You will then be directed to the Klarna website to register and provide payment details. If you are already an Klarna user, just log in to your Klarna account. Then complete your order.
