������ look WHO���S 40 TALKING COLORISTS ARE THE UNSUNG HEROES of Hollywood. Tey���re the ones who get a star into character for a new ���lm, the ones who take her from dark to light and back again without trashing her hair. Tey���re the ones she sees before awards season gets underway to make sure her highlights are perfect, her color refreshed. Still, when we see the photos in magazines or on E!, it���s the session stylist who did her hair that night, not the colorist who���s been doing it for years, who gets the credit for how fabulous she looked walking the red carpet. We decided to remedy the situation by asking some of the top colorists in Tinseltown to share their secrets so we can give credit where credit is due. The Colorist | MARCH/APRIL 2013 | ������ SURE, THE DESIGNER DUDS AND JEWELRY FROM KENNETH J. LANE ARE WORTH MENTIONING, BUT WE THINK AN A-LISTER���S MOST IMPORTANT ACCESSORY WHEN SHE WALKS THE RED CARPET IS HER HAIR COLOR. GEORGE PAPANIKOLAS Joico Celebrity Colorist Hannah Simone An in-demand color specialist at Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood, California, George Papanikolas is a master of balayage, which he calls his ���signature look.��� Lately he���s been coloring the locks of Hannah Simone, who stars opposite Zooey Deschanel on FOX���s hit series, New Girl. Because Simone���s hair is naturally so dark, Papanikolas used Joico Base Breaker to lift her hair from a dark brown to a medium chocolate brown. After processing for 10 minutes, he painted balayage highlights on the outer layer of her hair, especially in the fringe. ���It���s a seamless, natural look,��� says Papanikolas, who suggests grabbing more hair and adding a bit more product as you work your way down the hair shaft. ���You���re doing pretty big chunks at the end.��� Finally, apply a gloss at the shampoo bowl, using equal parts of Joico Vero K-PAK Chrome DemiPermanent Cr��me Color in A7 and A9. ���It neutralizes unwanted warmth and gives you a tone-on-tone brunette that���s really hot this year.��� PHOTOGRAPHY (TOP ROW, LEFT TO RIGHT): COURTESY OF JOICO; COURTESY OF TRACEY CUNNINGHAM; JOHN PASCAL; COURTESY OF KIM VO.
