A new waxing and skin care spot has opened in the neighborhood. Called Mai Adachi, the new addition is located at 1005 Market St. (between Golden Gate Ave. & Taylor St.) in Mid-Market.
The salon is named for Adachi, its owner and lead aesthetician, who originally hails from Japan. With 12 years of experience offering facials and waxing—including a stint at nearby salon Ensoma Marion Pernoux—Adachi prides herself on "improving quality of life through relaxation and beauty in a one-on-one practice."
At her new salon on an upper floor of a building at 6th & Market, Adachi offers hour-long classic or "classic plus" facials, the latter of which also includes a decolleté and foot massage. Back facials and facial peels are also on offer.
Adachi also offers a full range of waxing services, from brows to Brazilians. (For those who opt for facials, a brow wax is included free with the appointment.) A full list of services, prices, and online booking are available here.
With a five-star rating out of two reviews on Yelp so far, the new salon has been warmly received by patrons.
Orly H., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on October 7th, said: "Although this is a new business, I've been seeing Mai for my waxing for years in her previous location. She does an awesome job, is super professional, and bonus—she is a great conversationalist."
Yelper Jenna Q. added: “I've seen Mai three times this summer for waxing, and the experience is always very relaxing, not what'd you expect with wax on your face. I love the location on Market, and the interior is simple, elegant and clean."
Interested? Stop by to welcome the new business to the neighborhood. Mai Adachi is open Monday and Wednesday from 1pm–8pm, Tuesday and Thursday from 2pm–8pm and Friday, and Saturday from 10am–6pm. (It's closed on Sunday.)
