OUR STORY: Owner Loy Bouyer opened The Wax Cabana for purely selfish reasons. She was tired of walking into dingy salons and waiting forever to get in for treatments, only to pay ridiculous prices for services she was going to need again in a month. Not to mention, having to look the other way to avoid staring into huge vats of unhygienic wax pots and being reminded of the sure to be code-violating practices.

NEW!! Second Location: Carrollwood – 15241 North Dale Mabry Hwy, (Inside Sola Salons – Suite 7), Tampa FL 33618

So, she set out to create the perfect Tampa waxing salon… The Wax Cabana.

It maybe because of certain medications or simple skin sensitivity. Below are some of the medical conditions and situations when one should avoid getting a wax treatment. If you are uncertain, please check with your medical provider. We ask that you complete our intake sheet and be open regarding any medication or medical situation which might cause a problem.
