How To Hack a Showerhead That Is Too Low?

Q: We desperately need your help. We just moved into a beautiful apartment with a clawfoot tub. The showerhead looks like the picture above. My boyfriend is 6'5 and the shower head is not tall enough for him, it pretty much hits him in the chest. We added a shower head of our own, but it does not add height. I've looked into shower head extensions, but because of the curve on the shower pipe, I don't think those would work. Please help!

Editor: I'd like to recommend looking into a handheld showerhead with an extra-long hose — holders can be mounted at different heights. Who else has suggestions or advice?
