Open since 1946, Frederick’s Beauty Salon sits along a busy street in Seattle’s north-side Greenwood neighborhood. On any given visit, expect to see children getting their first haircuts, brides receiving wedding advice and women of a certain age sporting old-fashioned hair curlers. Frederick’s boasts a staff of seven whose expertise runs the full complement of services for women, men and kiddos, and who cater willingly both to newcomers and longtime clients. With a distinctly mid-century vibe, complete with scripted detailing and on the plate-glass window and vintage touches, the shop’s staff love pampering customers. That means in-salon bridal styling, facial waxing and ultimate treatment blowouts, with promise to restore sheen to “dull, lifeless, dried and fried” hair.
