Thieves steal £30,000 of hair extensions from salon

The Bolton News: Erin Briggs, who works at Capelli Remi, Deansgate, where burglars stole £30,000 of hair extensions Erin Briggs, who works at Capelli Remi, Deansgate, where burglars stole £30,000 of hair extensions

BURGLARS ransacked a hair salon and stole almost £30,000 of hair extensions.

Raiders targeted Capelli Remi, a hair and piercing salon in Deansgate, Bolton town centre, also known as Beauty Spot, after the shop closed on Tuesday.

They forced their way in through a back door and stole hundreds of packs of the salon’s most popular length of Capelli Remi hair extensions from the store room.

Devastated owner, Daniel Kynaston, aged 36, said the theft had left him “absolutely gutted”.

“This is a big kick in the teeth to the business.

“I will have to get through it. The hair extensions are not sold anywhere else other than in my stores. They are the shop’s own brand.

“The loss is nearly £30,000. They have taken the most expensive extensions in the most popular lengths and left the rest.”

Twenty-five colours of the hair extensions, which were in 18 inch and 20 inch lengths, were stolen.

The Capelli Remi hair extensions are made from real human hair.

Bellisima Royale hair extensions were also taken, which are in a clear packet with a pink band around the top.

It is a double blow, as £1 from the sale of every pack of Capelli Remi goes to children’s charities — and at the end of the year of the year Mr Kynaston doubles the amount raised.

Mr Kynaston, who lives in Bacup, Lancashire, said shorter lengths of hair extensions were untouched.

A £10 note was also stolen from the till and an empty safe was taken.

Mr Kynaston was not insured, but refuses to be defeated.

His other stores in Preston and Chorley are covered by insurance.

Mr Kynaston said: “I have four staff working at the store. I can’t let them down - I will not do that to them so I am going to have to cut back on everything else.”

He has urged people to call police if they are offered the hair extensions, which are in distinctive black and gold packaging.

Staff will not be able to operate as normal for several days — but they have not cancelled appointments.

Police are investigating and, as yet, no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information can call police on 0161 8565619 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.

wonder if the CCTV camera on the car park to the rear picked up anything? The location of that row of shops does invite this sort of activity - just look at how many times the charity shop nearby had its windows broken. Whilst I abhor theft, burglary and associated nefarious activities - insurance is essential. This is not the first business I have read about recently which suffered loss and the owners had not taken out insurance. It is not something you 'get round to doing' - it needs to be sorted first.

I can't believe out of his 3 shops the one in the worst town by far hasn't been insured.

Let's hope the 'feds' are combing the area

I would question them having 30k worth of stock. If we say they carry 6 months stock they must be selling £1200 a month worth of hair this seams a bit unlikely. Has he got a couple of Monets on his claim as well.

If your hair is fine and limp or thinning, you can easily apply do-it-yourself, one-piece clip in hair extensions that will immediately transform your hair from thin to full, thick and voluminous. By adding natural hair to your own in a five-minute process, you can conceal fine or thinning hair or even hair loss.
