There has been tremendous debate about when a girl should begin waxing. There are of course the extreme stories that make the most headlines and these are usually cases of parents being overzealous with beauty pageants. Uni K Wax has a different take on this. Why should we focus on all of the negative stuff when there are so many positive things that can come from getting waxed?
So when is the right time? What many mothers don’t know is that girls are going for wax treatments younger than before, mostly for removing hair on their lower legs, upper lip and eyebrows. As parents, we all look around and see that girls are maturing at an earlier age; our daughters and granddaughters at 11 look like we did at 14 and 15. We may try to hold back the years, but the reality is that girls are physically maturing at an earlier age, while emotionally, they are still little girls, even if they don’t look like it. So it is our job as parents and mothers to guide them through the changes in their bodies. For those parents who would love to take their daughters to have their legs waxed but “think” they are too young or that it will be “too painful”, nothing could be further from the truth!
Waxing is going through a revolution. It is more popular than ever for a number of reasons. Although there is the initial sting when the wax comes off, that sting goes away within moments and best of all, there is no danger of having a terrible cut from a razor that takes weeks to heal. And waxing lasts a LOT longer as we all know. 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. What’s more, over time with shaving, this growth will become stronger, darker and denser. Waxing, on the other hand, removes hair below the skin level, which is why it’s a fairly long-lasting method of hair removal – it can last from 3 to 6 weeks. Better yet, the hair grows in softer, not stubbly.
A common complaint that some people have is that the wax could go on too hot and burn a young girl’s skin. What’s great about Uni K Wax Centers is that our special wax is applied at body temperature, making the application warm and soothing. There is no risk of getting burned. More importantly, our wax remains elastic so it removes your unwanted hair without pulling on your skin. Our elastic wax combined with our special technique eliminates the risk of breaking the hair, which results in longer-lasting, smooth and hairless skin.
Noemi Grupenmager, the founder of Uni K Wax Centers, puts it this way. “One of the things as parents we are particularly concerned with is that our kids are comfortable and confident. As young girls develop, some earlier than others, they might be the first to have hair on their legs, or perhaps their upper lip. Unfortunately, as many women can attest to, young girls can be mean. Boys can also be cruel. The prevention of bullying in schools has taken center stage and waxing can be used to help. There is no reason for a young girl to feel embarrassed at PE or in the pool. What we do at Uni K Wax Centers is make it easy and comfortable for young girls and teens to go through the process, and letting them know that what they are doing is completely safe. This is particularly important to young teens who are feeling the need to have their first bikini wax or “tweens” who are having their first waxing experience.”
“At Uni K Wax, we want to let young girls know that there is NOTHING to be embarrassed about and that waxing can be something that is natural, pleasant, and most of all safe!”, Noemi continues. “We are so confident that your daughters and granddaughters will enjoy their waxing experience we have decided, for the entire month of July (starting the 5th) , girls 15 and younger who are first timers will receive a 50% discount on all waxing services Sunday through Wednesday.“
Remember that referring a friend or a relative also entitles you to 5,000 points in our Rewards Program so this month let a young friend or relative know that she can get 50% off her first visit. This is worth sharing, emailing and tweeting…
