Tress-Obsessed: Selita Ebanks’s Edgy Two-Tone Crop

By  July 06, 2011

How awesome it is to be a drop-dead gorgeous Victoria’s Secret supermodel who can wear virtually any hairstyle—no matter how eccentric—and still look absolutely stunning? Sexy Selita Ebanks recently lopped off her long locks and opted for a super short two-tone crop that’s best described as business on the left—party on the right. (Could this be the new age mullet?)

Thinking of trying it yourself? “Cut the hair prior to applying any dye,” warns Frédéric Fekkai colorist Jamie Sanchez. “Most people make the mistake of getting their color done before they receive their haircut. As a result the color gets cut out and impacts the appearance of both the color and the haircut.”

As for home hair color application, Sanchez offers the following tips: “Section your hair into top and bottom layers. Keep the under layer dark for definition, and with a tone-on-tone approach to coloring, with the top blonde section leaning beige. The effect is edgy, but still chic.” Below, our color recommendations for snagging Selita’s sassy style.
