Hair dye and wood stain aren't very different from each other.They both soak into the wood grain which makes removal without sanding hard.
You might be able to make it less noticeable by applying bleach with a rag (Q-Tip on the tiny spots) . If it works ,it should work almost instantly .Rinse as soon as possible to try and prevent the wood from lightening from the bleach
