2020 Best Colorist

Jessica Thornton, the Green Room

Whether you’re looking for a few face-framing highlights or just need some serious corrective color after a botched lockdown dye job, the single chair inside Jessica Thornton’s cozy salon is waiting for you. The stylist begins with an in-depth consultation—like psychoanalysis for your locks—to learn your goals, then creates a look that’s everything you’ve dreamed of but could never quite put into words.
