AQUA Tape-In Hair Extensions

At Snips, we are happy to carry Aqua Tape-In Hair Extensions, which means the only thing standing between you and your length, volume, or color of choice could be a trip to your favorite Snips location!

Aqua Hair Extensions are made with 100% Remy hair. What’s Remy hair? For starters, it’s real human hair that has been donated and kept in the healthiest condition possible. To get more technical, the donated hair has been kept with a cuticle that is still intact. All of this guarantees your extensions will be healthy, soft, and shiny - meaning your extensions will give you an enhancement you can be proud of! Best of all, because Aqua extensions are made with real hair they can be washed, blow-dried, curled, and even flat ironed.



Aqua ranks high on our favorite list because of its affordability and ease of application. A single set of hair can be used for four to six months, requiring only minimal maintenance - we suggest an adjustment every six to eight weeks. These adjustments can be done up to three times before new hair is needed, so you can guarantee you will be getting the most wear out of your extensions every time! And because the application tape is made here in the US, Aqua can guarantee the quality, durability, and longevity of the adhesion will last too.

We carry extensions in three different lengths - 14”, 18” and 22”. Extensions also come in a variety of colors, ranging from solid, natural colors to bold, vibrant pops of color. With your vision and the skill of your favorite Snips extension expert stylist, you can do anything from enhancing your natural length or style to transforming your look completely with a new fashion color. Let us help you blend the extensions for a highlight, ombre, balayage or statement look!

What to Expect

How long can you expect an application appointment to take? You might be surprised to find out it’s not as long as you think - adding extensions to a full head only takes 90 minutes!

After the extensions are applied, we will cut it to customize it to your wants and needs. Here is where your stylist’s creativity gets to shine and your vision starts to come to life!


Salon Maintenance

Like we said above, if you want to get the most life and wear out of your extensions you will need to come in every six to eight weeks to get your extensions taken out and retaped.

First, we remove the tape with a remover made up of alcohol and mineral oil. These ingredients remove the binding agent in the tape but is completely safe for your skin and hair! Next, we apply new tape to the extensions and put them back in! During these maintenance appointments, we can touch up your color on your natural hair as well, as well as trim or shape up any areas you may want to give some extra attention to! This whole touch-up process takes anywhere between one and a half to two hours, though it can last longer if we are adding color or trimming length to your hair too.

Home Care

Taking care of your new hair at home is easy and not much different than caring for your own, natural hair when it doesn’t have enhanced length or thickness added. You will want to wash it no more than three times per week with a shampoo and conditioner that are made for hair with extensions in mind. Don’t worry - we carry these products in our salon and your hair extension expert stylist will point you in the right direction! The most important difference between regular hair care products and ones that are extension-friendly is that they are sulfate free, paraben free, and protein free.

The only other special tip for washing hair with extensions? Be mindful of where the wefts are! These can be pulled if you aren’t mindful when washing near your roots and scalp. Ouch!

Overall, hair extensions - especially AQUA’s tape-ins! - are an easy way to add length, volume and dramatic color pops that complement your natural hair. Set up a time to come in and see your Snips stylist to talk about adding extensions at your next appointment!
