George Papanikolas is one of the hottest, most sought after colorists in Hollywood.
He's also been recognized by Allure, InStyle, The Hollywood Reporter and People Magazine as one of the top colorists in the United States.
Papanikolas' signature highlighting style has caught the attention of Southern California's most discerning clientele.
His client list includes a virtual Hollywood Who's-Who.
He's styled the manes of Madonna, Britney Spears, Hailey Baldwin, Shay Mitchell, Nicole Scherzinger, Ellen Pompeo, Kim and Khloe Kardashion as well as Minka Kelly.
Using the French, freehand technique called "balayage," he creates natural-looking, sun-kissed color.
The color he creates looks, as George says, "like you've spent a summer at the beach, not three hours in the salon."
High fashion blondes love the "rooty," high contrast designs which were inspired by the likes of Gisele Bundchen and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Brunettes clamor for his progressive color designs characterized by rich color at the roots with luscious caramel-toned tips.
His copper-gold, vibrant redheads are the new standard for this head-turning hue.
As a result, his chair is the first stop for many of the models being launched by L.A.'s hottest agencies, including Ford and L.A. Models.
Recently the mega-talented hairdresser has seen his career expand from color to include freelance styling work to widen his budding portfolio.
George's color work has resulted in numerous national magazine photo assignments, film projects, music videos and fashion shows - resulting in a vast and sophisticated portfolio.
George has had amazing success creating his signature hair color.
In the past Geroge set the look on Britney Spears Circus Tour where he was the key hairstylist.
He was also the key stylist on some of New York Fashion Week's most esteemed runway shows.
George gained incredible work experience at Beverly Hills' top salons including the renowned Sally Hershberger at John Frieda Salon and the Chris McMillan Salon.
The in-demand color expert has a home in West Hollywood at the prestigious Andy Lecompte Salon.
Owner Lecompte tends to the tresses of Madonna, and Penelope Cruz, just to name a few of the A-listers which can be found in the salon on any given day.
Healthy, shiny hair is key for George. It is one of the most important ingredients in his hair color creations.
To keep strands in optimum condition, George often turns to Joico's K-PAK Deep Penetrating Reconstructor.
K-PAK is an award-winning hair fixer. It's enriched with Joico's unique Quadramine Complex.
This amazing complex transforms strands instantly. It leaves hair stronger, glossier and easier to manage.
Besides Joico's K-Pak, George is also an ardent fan of Joico's new Design Collection for styling and finishing.
George cites the Dry Spray Wax and Texture Spray as ideal aids for his signature, day-at-the-beach looks.
