We love Selita Ebanks! She’s a trend-setter and a natural beauty who works her features and style with a cool, sophistication that we definitely admire. When we got word that she chopped her trademark long layers, we were astonished but at the same time thrilled with the results. Thanks to the team behind her glamorous new do, we have the information on how her new cut emerged.
INSPIRATION: A head-turning edgy rock and roll style yet sophisticated. The look is “chic with strong definition” says stylist Marshall Lin.
How to Get the Look: First, cut the hair prior to applying any dye. “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, with the top blonde section leaning beige. The effect is edgy, but still chic.
