I have really long black hair and want to high light my hair something like this
or maybe just at the tips and at the bangs
are there any temporary ways I can do this?
is it doable at home or do I have to go to a salon?
and if I do it permanetly will they have to strip my hair color first? I don't want to damage my hair which is why I want a temporary way and if not I can consider permanent also.
Also my hair is really curly.

Your only temporary options are hair extensions (which don't really work for tips of hair or bangs) or there are some spray-in colors that could cover dark hair, but they look chalky, fake and terrible.
To do this permanently, either you (or if you're too inexperienced with hair) a salon will bleach where you want the color, then dye it. Bleaching isn't as terrible as everyone goes on about, I bleach my hair every 4-6 weeks to keep it blond and as long as I use a high-protien shampoo, or specialty shampoo I'm good. There are shampoos and conditioners specifically for unnatural colored hair so def look into that before getting it done. Make sure you let the shampoo/conditioner sit on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing so you can really soak everything in.
I don't think they will strip your hair, unless you've been dying it black with drugstore box dye, in which case they can't bleach it until all that color is out.
I hope this helps-good luck!2
