Maribel Ruiz, a leading Hollywood businesswoman for over 20 years with her Skin & Body by Beauty of Wax, has announced the opening of her latest venture, South Florida Mobile Body Waxing, with partner Kevin Kennedy. South Florida Mobile Body Waxing offers body waxing, eyebrow tinting and shaping, facials, and massages, for both men and women, in the privacy of a newly built-out and highly-sterilized bus that visits clients.
“Convenience and safety for our clients are our main concern,” said Ruiz, who explained that the idea for the offshoot of the venerable business started last summer, when many of her clients told her that they were either homebound, home-schooling their children while sometimes working at home themselves, worried about going out during the pandemic, or both. While the spa on 2040 Polk Street in Downtown Hollywood remains open by appointment only, some clients still do not feel safe going out.
“The bus,” she said, “is private, cozy and clean, and comes to you.”
Everyone who enters the bus has their temperature taken, and is given shoe covers and masks. All tools and materials are changed and/or sterilized between clients, and the entire interior of the bus is sterilized overnight, every night with UV light “which kills any bacteria and everything,” added Ruiz. “This way, I can take care of my clients one at a time, and they can feel comfortable and safe, in addition to the luxury of having the spa come to them.”
Among the mobile services offered are: Massages and Facials, starting at $119; Brazilian waxing for $72; and an eyebrow tint and wax combo for $69. There is a $100 minimum for a home visit.
