Working out of the Andy LeCompte Salon and Joico’s Celebrity Colorist, George Papanikolas gotten his color wand on the tresses of Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Maria Menounos, Miranda Kerr, Mila Kunis, Nicole Ritchie, Britney Spears, Sofia Vergara and Kate Walsh JUST to name a few.
George Papanikolas is one of the hottest and most sought after colorists in Hollywood. Instyle, Allure, and People Magazine have all recognized George as one of the countries Top Colorists. His signature highlighting style has caught the attention of Southern California’s and New York City’s most discerning clientele. Using the French, freehand technique called “balayage,” he creates natural-looking, sun-kissed color that 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. And his copper-gold, vibrant redheads are the new standard for this head-turning hue. As a result, he has become a favorite among young Hollywood celebrities. His color work has been featured in numerous national magazine photo assignments, film projects, music tours, music videos and fashion shows—resulting in a vast and sophisticated portfolio.
