Hairstylist to the stars George Papanikolas is giving Celebuzz superfans the inside scoop on how to get the most-desired summer-inspired locks. The master colorist, who has worked his camera-ready magic on the Kardashian gals (take a look at Khloe’s luscious locks), takes you through a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to get an at-home Hollywood version of Tinseltown’s hottest hairstyle.
And Papanikolas is transforming the ombre trend into a chicer version of itself. No more dip-dyed tips, this hair expert prefers the “balayage” technique as seen on Gisele Bundchen and Sarah Jessica Parker‘s envious strands.
So what’s this guru’s secret? — Hand painting the highlights for a natural glaze.
And all you’ll need to top it off is a curling iron, dry shampoo and hairspray.
