Quackenbush works hair magic at Adele

Former Suede Salon owner Amy Quackenbush has moved to Fremont, where she opened Adele (Fremont, 4224A Fremont Ave. N; 206.522.5245;, a boutique salon, in February. With a Paris-meets–Palm Desert vibe, accented by refurbished chandeliers and bright splashes of aqua, the new digs have Quackenbush back behind the chair, taming tresses with her signature Diamond Treatment (starts at $70), a precision cut followed by a top-secret conditioning glaze. ... Get the Mad Men look at 1960s mod-themed Spatini (Capitol Hill, 907 Eighth Ave.; 206.453.5380;, complete with a giant Pop Art mural by Bellingham artist Andrea Heimer. You can order up a sex kitten blowout, voluminous beehive style (both between $35 and $60) or go easy with a boho braid from the “braid bar” ($15).

Bringing lash love to the Loveless Building, Brittany Wilson and Corey Parker opened Blink Lash Bar (Capitol Hill, 715 Broadway E; 206.324.5274; in March, an eyelash-only spa specializing in synthetic ($225) and mink eyelash extensions ($400), as well as lash dips ($80–$200), a trendy coated-lash service that delivers a fully applied mascara look that lasts for up to six weeks.
