A Little History
The Wax Cabana has been in business since February 2006. The goal is to always offer the best service at all times in a very comfortable, serene setting. Your waxing experience is enhanced by soothing music which includes reggae and jazz.
Loy, the owner and operator has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2002 and Full Specialist (Esthetician & Nail Technician) since 2005. She worked for 3 years at Jachimek Chiropractic and for 3 years at former All About You Day Spa in Indian Rocks Beach, Pinellas County and Natural Health Studio in Temple Terrace, Florida.
Experience the high quality of our wax that was carefully chosen among many others. We prefer to use a wax that dries hard on the skin and is less harsh when we remove the hair. We use a strip to remove soft wax from bigger areas. We can do a bikini wax in less than 15 minutes and a completely bare wax in as little as 25 minutes on a client who gets waxed monthly. With the aid of an highly effective numbing gel (available for purchase) your experience will be one of the best in Tampa Bay.
The practice here is to NEVER double dip. This ensures 100% cleanliness and lessens the chance of anything unwanted transferring to you.

About Loy (Owner, Esthetician, Wax Specialist)
Loy earned a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She loves to help people, and would eventually like to earn a Masters Degree in Behavioral Health or Counseling Services.
Ever since she was a teenager, she knew she wanted to offer spa services to people in the form of body products. Eventually, that led her to become a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2002. She worked full-time as a Massage Therapist for 3 years at a Tampa chiropractic office then at local day spas in Tampa and St. Petersburg. It was at one of these day spas that she was encouraged by the owner to get her Skincare License, which she did. Since then Waxing has become her passion and expertise.
As the owner of The Wax Cabana, Loy is on a quest to create the perfect waxing experience to both men and women in and around Tampa Bay. Through practicing quality waxing in hygienic conditions her clients keep returning monthly and refer her to their friends. She coined the term Guyzilian to reach out to men and now offers “male trim” as an alternative to those who fear the waxing experience. At The Wax Cabana the philosophy is to exceed the guests experience with high quality technique and comfort.
