“In 1993, Noemi Grupenmager envisioned a specialized hair removal center that offered waxing for both men and women, which would raise industry and marketplace standards. Noemi imagined something new — a center solely dedicated to waxing, with a welcoming atmosphere that offered clean, quick and professional services at affordable prices. She founded Uni K Wax in 1993, making her mark as a pioneer in the category and the first to open such a center. She opened her first location in Miami Beach, FL using her own proprietary elastic wax, made of natural beeswax, essential oils and a special pine tree resin, which took three years of in-depth laboratory research to create.” Huffington Post
More than 20 years later Uni K Wax is still pioneering the waxing industry bringing numerous “firsts” to the market, ranging from product, services, waxing techniques, marketing and business ideas . The list is long and keeps growing.
Here are a few of Uni K Wax “FIRSTS”:
- · THE FIRST to open a Center dedicated solely to body and facial waxing
- · THE FIRST to franchise a full body Waxing Center for men and women
- · THE FIRST to create an elastic wax made of all natural ingredients and applied at body temperature
- · THE FIRST to manufacture their own wax in the USA exclusively for use in their own Wax Centers
- · THE FIRST to create the Brazilian bikini wax style
- · THE FIRST to provide customers with their own freshly made wax, in individual wax warmers for each service
- · THE FIRST to offer a program for teens: the Uni K TeenClub
- · THE FIRST to create new industry techniques in wax applications
Maybe the most important Uni K Wax breakthrough was to make waxing, for the first time, an enjoyable experience… because waxing should not be painful or harmful to your skin!!! There is nothing more gratifying to read media reviews such as the one in Metro New York saying “Skip the Advil – Uni K offers a pain-free waxing experience – no joke” or Shape Magazine recognizing that Uni K Wax – “Is Taking the ouch out of waxing!”
