Trend Alert: Spring Cut + Color

It's always great to get a pro's advice on what's hot each season. And there's no one quite like Joico Celeb Stylist George Papanikolas, and my personal favorite colorist when I am on the West Coast. He works with celebs like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus and is the go-to for young Hollywood.

George dishes on some trends we are bound to see this season. From hair color to cut, here's what to expect -- and if you have yet to make up your mind on a new look, here's some inspiration.

"It's going to be all about effortless cool this spring.  Hair with tons of texture but not perfect spiral curls.  It will be a more exaggerated wave and will be  more reminiscent of a surfer girl. 

Last season Ombre was the hot look, but for this season that look is too contrived.  Instead, the color will also be effortless and cool, with beach inspired highlights.  Everyone will be asking for balayage highlights that are hand-painted.  There will still be a rooty look, but not as exaggerated as it was in the past.  Instead roots will be mixed with gold, honey strands gradually getting lighter to baby blonde at the ends.  For brunettes it will be a similar effect with caramels and cinnamon tones.

For haircuts, the most asked for haircut is a long bob with bangs.  The cut is very 70s inspired, but takes a modern approach with the shorter length.  The texture stays with the effortless cool with exaggerated waves and roughed up texture.

We've also seen a resurgence of the pixie.  The look is huge on the red carpet, and should be paired with a bold hue to make it for this season.  White blonde, or a fiery red make this look pop."
