MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There are a couple of hairstyles that are so new and hip that many women aren’t sure what to ask for.

At Avant Hair & Cosmetics downtown Minneapolis, stylist Hoa Nguyen is giving women the red carpet treatment. His specialty is the “The Ombre.” You may have seen it on Mila Kunis or Salma Hayek.

“It’s very technical,” said Nguyen. “It’s not a very forgiving technique.”

The Ombre is natural color towards the top, becoming gradually lighter at the bottom.

“I’ve seen a lot of bad Ombre on the streets and it looks really tacky. So, if you don’t do it right it doesn’t look good at all,” he said.

Another style women want is called the “balayage.” Hoa says the idea is to keep it darker on the scalp and lighter on the ends, but with more highlights.

Nguyen says Jennifer Lopez has switched from balayage to Ombre, and back to balayage again.

“I haven’t seen it on any of my friends, walking around the streets,” said a young woman with a fresh Ombre. “I always like to do something different, so this just made it perfect.”

Hoa says both styles — the Ombre and balayage — are very low maintenance. Instead of suggesting women come back in after 4 to 8 weeks, he says they can wait four months for between appointments.
