Adele Salon Brings ‘Intimate, Community-Oriented’ Hair-Styling To Fremont

By master · January 25th, 2011 · No Comments

A new high-end, boutique hair salon is coming to Fremont. Adele Salon will open at 4224 Fremont Ave North (across from Paseo) on February 1st and promises to offer an intimate, community feeling while you get your cuts, color, highlights or one of their other many services.

Adele’s owner, Amy Quackenbush, is moving to Fremont after owning the hair salon Suede in Roosevelt for six years. After evaluating neighborhoods to find one friendly towards locally-owned businesses and which provides support for those owners, she found that Fremont fit the bill.

“We’re thrilled be a part of Fremont’s incredible community and to bring our services to the neighborhood,” Quackenbush said. “Adele fits seamlessly into this pedestrian-friendly area surrounded by independent restaurants and retailers; we look forward to being here for many years and forging lasting relationships.”

Quackenbush bring with her two fellow stylists, Jenna McClure and Karen Andrews, that will make up the trio working at Adele. The three have worked together for four years and share a camaraderie not only amongst one another but also with each others’ clients.

“We pride ourselves on the fact that we know each others’ clients,” says Quackenbush, who describes the atmosphere inside her salon as an “intimate, community-oriented space, like a coffee shop setting.”

Since no one working at the salon is named Adele, it begs the question…who is it named after? That would be Quackenbush’s “eternally fashionable grandmother,” who passed away a few years back but remains an inspiration.

The salon’s signature is their “Diamond Cut.” While getting a precision cut, they add a glazing treatment to your hair. The service also includes a shampoo, blow dry and finishing touches.

While many long-time clients know the stylists and will be following them to the new location, Adele invites new clients to come check out the space when it opens with a special deal. For the first month, any new client will receive a complimentary “Power Dose,” which includes a three-minute shampoo as well as a conditioning treatment (a $20 value).

Salon hours will be Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 206.522.5245 or visit More photos of the new space after the jump.
