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 country's 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 spent a summer at the beach, not 3 hours at the salon."

He is a favorite among young Hollywood Celebrities. His 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. The in-demand Colorist is available to an international clientele, and divides his time between Los Angeles, at the Andy Lecompte Salon; New York City, at the Rita Hazan Salon; and Dubai at the Belle Femme Salon. George is the Celebrity Stylist for Matrix, makers of the finest professional haircolor, hair care and styling products, and is available for Editorial/Fashion and private direct bookings.
