Whether it’s time to get your hair extensions replaced, or you’ve decided you’re ready to try out an extension-free hairstyle, our tape-in hair extension removal service quickly and comfortably removes your extension bundles without damaging your hair or the hair extensions.
At Apothecarie, your hair extension removal will be carried out by our highly-skilled and licensed stylists (certified with both Hairtalk and Easihair Pro salon hair extension brands), using a professional hair extension removal solution, plus one of our favorite clarifying shampoos to ensure that your hair is left completely free from adhesives.
Your hair extension removal appointment will last approximately 30 minutes. Here’s what to expect:
- Hair Extension Removal: We’ll start by applying a professional hair extension removal solution to loosen your tape-in extensions, so that they can slide out without damaging the natural hair they’re attached to.
- Hair-Clarifying Wash: Once the tape-in hair extension removal is complete, we’ll give your hair a relaxing scrub with luxurious Oribe or R+Co shampoo to ensure every last drop of adhesive is gone, before following up with a hair-perfecting conditioner.
You can opt to have the same or new hair bundles immediately added to your hair for an additional fee, or simply book a removal only. Many of our clients also choose to add a professional 30-minute blowout onto this service, for beautifully smooth and styled hair that looks like it belongs on a celebrity!

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to remove hair extensions?
Our hair extension removal price is $75, which includes both the removal and a relaxing, hair-clarifying shampoo and condition afterwards.
How long does it take to remove hair extensions?
This service takes approximately half an hour. If you’d like us to also style your hair via a luxurious blowout after we’re done, the total appointment time will be one hour (remember to request the blowout when booking so that we can allow enough time).
When do my tape in hair extensions need to be reinstalled?
Depending on your hair’s natural growth rate and how well you care for your extensions while they’re in your hair, you can expect them to stay looking fabulous for up to 9 weeks before they need to be re-installed. We can book your next removal and reinstallation at the end of your appointment so that you don’t forget when they’re due for a refresh!
Can my hair extensions be reused?
Our premium-quality tape-in hair extensions can be re-installed up to 4 times, so you won’t need to pay for new hair bundles at every appointment. If you’re new to hair extensions, be sure to ask your Apothecarie stylist for advice on how to keep them in perfect condition while they’re in your hair.
Which types of hair extensions do you remove?
Our hair stylists are licensed with two salon professional tape-in hair extension brands, Hairtalk and Easihair Pro. Even if you’d had these installed at another salon, we’ll be able to remove them for you at Apothecarie.
Do you offer fusion hair extension removal?
Not at this time. Similarly, we don’t remove sewn in hair extensions. We currently only install and remove tape-in hair extensions by Hairtalk and Easihair Pro.
Will I end up with thin hair after extension removal?
Not if it’s done properly! We use professional hair extension removal tools and removal solution to ensure the tape in extensions are fully loosened before we take them out, so that they won’t rip out or break the natural hair that they’re attached to. Of course, when you remove extensions you remove the fabulous added volume that comes with them, but your hair should remain completely undamaged and look just the way it did before you had extensions.
Is it safe to do a tape hair extension removal at home?
If you’re wondering how to remove hair extensions at home, the honest answer is that you shouldn’t! Although you’ll find guides for a DIY removal online, you risk damaging your hair and/or the extensions themselves (which may lead to being unable to reuse a hair bundle you paid good money for). Plus, if little bits of tape are left in your hair because you can’t see exactly what you’re doing, it could lead to matting.
Tape in hair extensions should always be removed by a licensed professional, who has access to professional hair extension removal solution and knows how to use it safely to take the extensions out without causing damage.
