Tips for men coming in to Uni K Wax, from Noemi Grupenmager herself!

The most common question men probably have is –  why waxing and not just shaving?

Here is what Noemi says: “Waxing with Uni K Wax is the smarter choice.  Shaving removes hair at skin level only, and hair reappears in one to four days.  By continually cutting the hair, you are in fact, stimulating its growth, however, by continually waxing, the hair growth will diminish over time.”

The wax used at Uni K Wax Centers is specially designed and one of the many attributes it has is that it is an elastic wax.  Noemi sums it up the following way: “One thing that many people don’t know is the difference between hard wax, strip wax and elastic wax, or that elastic wax even exists!  Strip wax makes for a tedious, slow and painful procedure, often leaving the skin feeling sticky.  Hard waxes break and crack.  Elastic wax stretches to remove hair without strips, causing less of a pull to the skin, meaning a more comfortable removal experience.”  So if you are looking for a more professional groomed look, lasting longer, ditch the razor and head into Uni K Wax centers.

…that Uni K Wax was the first waxing center to offer identical services to BOTH men and women???

When founded in 1993, Noemi Grupenmager dreamed of a center that ONLY provided WAXING services.  There were plenty of places that offered waxing as part of their services, but Noemi was thinking bigger.  Uni K Wax was not only the FIRST waxing only center in the United States, but also the first waxing center to cater to both women and men, offering all services to both.  The name “Uni K Wax” refers to “unique” in that it was the first waxing only center and “Uni” refers to uni-sex.

Uni K Wax has been at the forefront of waxing for men and specializes in the proper techniques specifically for them. Where previously only athletes and movie stars would wax, men are taking their grooming more seriously .  At Uni K Wax, a man can not only have his back and shoulders waxed, he can wax his face, arms, eyebrows, chest, stomach, legs  bikini or just about any other place he desires

At the time, few appreciated Noemi’s vision, but she was clearly far ahead of the curve. To read more about how Noemi built Uni K Wax into a success using this vision, click here.
