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. George is represented by Exclusive Artist Management for editorial and fashion.
The In-demand Bi-Coastal color specialist has established himself in West Hollywood at the Andy Lecompte Salon, and in New York City at the Rita Hazan Salon.
One of the most important ingredients in George’s color blends is a foundation of healthy, shiny hair. To produce his vibrant color results, he relies on Joico’s Vero-K-Pak Color, as well as Joico’s Hair Repair System which includes Joico’s K-PAK Deep Penetrating Reconstructor to keep his cients hair in optimum condition. This award-winning hair fixer is packed with Joico’s unique Quadramine Complex, which transforms strands instantly, leaving hair stronger, glossier and easier to manage. He’s also an ardent fan of Joico’s new Design Collection for styling and finishing, citing the Dry Spray Wax and Texture Spray as ideal aids for his signature, day-at-the-beach looks.
