Would You Rock Two-Tone Hair Like Selita Ebanks?
Selita Ebanks continues to show off her new two-toned pixie cut, stepping out at the Larry Crowne premiere in Hollywood on Monday night. She complemented the unique style with a fuchsia Marchesa mini and Christian Louboutin leopard-print shoes.
The 28-year-old actress and former Victoria's Secret model debuted her two-tone coif June 7 at a charity gala in NYC.
Lately, Ebanks has been making some bold choices when it comes to her hair: In May, she swapped her long, flowing tresses for a chin-legnth bob and blunt bangs dyed a deep shade of red. Just weeks later, the star went back to her brunette roots but cropped her hair even shorter.
Us Weekly got the scoop from the pros at the Frederic Fekkai Salon in Soho, NYC, who created the star’s latest and most-daring look.
When going short, the rule of thumb is haircut first; dye job second. "Most people make the mistake of getting their color done before they receive their haircut," says colorist Jamie Sanchez. "As a result the color gets cut out and impacts the appearance of both the color and the haircut."
Section your hair into top and bottom layers. Keep the under layer dark for definition and, with a tone-on-tone approach to coloring, keep the top blonde section toward beige. The effect is "chic with strong definition" says stylist Marshall Lin.
