If you’ve said goodbye to your salon temporarily or potentially for good, you need to make sure that you’re armed and ready for at-home hair coloring. Box kits often come with applicators, brushes and the works, but they aren’t always the most precise. You might find that color ends up everywhere but your roots or that you can’t control how much color is leaking out of the bottle. And if you’re trying to get serious about mixing up your own dye and getting creative with your hair, an applicator is a must-have. Take the fate of your hair into your own hands and buy your own dye applicator bottle. 

The best hair color applicators have clear measurements, so you can determine exactly how much dye you’re putting on your hair. They’re made of durable, flexible plastic, so it’s easy to spread the color around your head. Our three picks are different sizes, ranging from 6 oz. to 16 oz. Color applicators are great to use if you dye your hair frequently and just want to do root-touch ups. The applicator has an accurate and small tip that makes coloring your roots a breeze.
