Khloe Kardashian ended 2013 with a lot of life changes. She filed for divorce and lost 30 pounds, but scoffed when her mom told the press Khloe could use a nose job. She did, however, decide add some new hue to her beautiful locks before putting 2013 firmly behind her.

“I love the new year, new beginnings,” she told readers of her Cosmopolitan U.K. cover story. “I need a good fresh start,” she added. “We can’t fix our mistakes and imperfections, so let’s have fun. My life has made me who I am at this moment and I’m very happy with who I am. . . Life is about how you process things.”

And “processing” is where Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas comes in.

Khloe K’s Kolor Formula:

Papanikolas has mastered the art and craft of beach-style highlighting techniques, and his work is in high demand from all the Kardashians as well as many other celebrities and Hollywood “it girls.”

He summarizes Khloe’s “fresh start” transformation formula and technique as:

STEP 1: Matrix Gloss Sync 7N applied at scalp.

STEP 2: Balayage highlights, created with 2 scoops Matrix Light Master + 1 ½ oz. 40-volumne Matrix Cream Developer.

STEP 3: Hand paint fine highlights at the roots, gradually getting thicker an heavier towards the ends

When not traveling for a specific celebrity client or project, or collaborating with Matrix to deliver professional education and inspiration, Papanikolas works in West Hollywood at the Andy Lecompte Salon and in New York City at the Rita Hazan Salon.
