Hollywood loaned out one of its hottest stylists last month, when Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas took an evening off from coloring clients like Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Miranda Kerr and Minka Kelly and took the stage for an evening of hair color education. Originally planned as an intimate look and learn for 40, the class sold out in less than 48 hours, prompting organizers to move to a larger venue to accommodate the 300+ hairstylists who begged to attend.

The overall effect, one Matthews describes as "cleaned up, but not extremely defined," is rugged yet sophisticated.Get the Look:Says Matthews, "[The] model is a natural red head.

Colorist Kasey O'Hara Skrobe recently helped take a client from faded, rainbow-colored strands to a bright, fiery ombre. The end result is bold, fun color that perfectly reflects the changing colors of the fall season!Get the Look:
