How to Dye Only the Bangs of My Hair

by Jessica Cohen

Many people choose to dye only certain sections or strands of their hair and it has become a common trend to dye just your bangs, leaving the rest of your hair au naturale. With a little extra care, dyeing just the bangs is no more difficult than any other hair dyeing procedure. There are many different selections of hair dye products available. By dyeing your bangs yourself instead of having it done by a hair specialist, you will save a considerable amount of money.

Items you will need

  • Hair dye
  • Comb
  • Hair elastic
  • Hair clips
  • Aluminum foil
Step 1

Separate your bangs from the rest of your hair using a comb. Use a hair elastic to pull back the rest of your hair into a ponytail and clip back any loose strands.

Step 2

Apply the color dye to your bangs. Place a layer of aluminum foil under your bangs and then another layer over your bangs. Let the dye sit in your hair for the recommended length of time based on the type of dye that you're using. The aluminum helps prevent any dye from getting on your forehead.

Step 3

Rinse out your bangs in the shower.
