Buy 10 Get 3 Free – Any Series!

To start this year on a high note, we wanted to offer something that will ensure you have an entire year’s worth of waxing with this special offer.  During the month of January, when you purchase a Series of 10 services, we will add an extra 3 of the same services for free, so that your waxing schedule will carry you into the next year for one low price, as most of our customers wax on average, every four weeks.  As the series are valid for 24 months, if your hair growth is longer, you can use the series over a longer period of time.

There are a lot of benefits to purchasing a series, rather than scheduling and paying for each service separately each month. When you purchase a series in January, collectively you end up saving even more money throughout the year, on a regular service. Think about it… you will get 30% more value for every series of 10 you purchase during January.

Keep in mind the following:

  • –  Any type of service from the Menu for Her or Him can be purchased as a series.
  • –  You can buy as many series of 10 as you wish, and enjoy the same 30% discount, as long as you purchase them during January during this promotion.
  • –  A series can be redeemed at any Uni K Wax location in the country.
  • –  You have 24 months to use up all of your purchased services.
  • –  You can purchase a series in the store or online.
  • –  You can even use your rewards points to purchase a series.

This year, we are going to be offering an additional monthly special – “The Featured Package of the Month.”  A special new package which will be offered at a discounted price only for that specific month. This is yet another way to offer our customers opportunities to save on their waxing services. The January 2015 Featured Package is: Full arms, Full brazilian bikini & Full legs. The price of the package is $110  (w/butt strip +16) for her and $149 (w/butt strip +21) for him. Women will save $13 on the package and men $16. So if you want to “go full waxing” this month is the time.

Once again, everyone at Uni K Wax Centers would like to wish our customers and the readers of this blog a very happy and healthy New Year! We wish you nothing but wonderful smooth and healthy skin in the year ahead!  See you in 2015.

Funds raised in the US are directed to programs run directly by Movember, Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.

Last year, Movember had its most successful year to date, with over 850,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the globe raising a phenomenal $126.3 million USD to change the face of men’s health.

Uni K Wax and Noemi Grupenmager, its founder, in the press…

“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. 

Uni K Wax Centers are an established concept with a recognized name and appeal and growing customer base. Today, Uni K Wax Centers are located throughout New York, Florida and California with plans to develop over 100 franchises and affiliates across the country by the end of 2015.”

SPRING… TIME TO BLOSSOM

Spring is here and so is Spring break!  Let your skin glow and feel silky smooth with Uni K Wax.  This month’s promotion is for all Reward Members who will receive 15% off on all services and products, valid in March, on Mondays and Tuesdays from opening to 5pm!

To prepare for the upcoming season, our founder, Noemi Grupenmager, shares a few need-to-know spring waxing tips.

–  Exfoliation is very important up until one to two days before and after a wax.
–  Daily moisturizing is necessary to keep your skin soft in between waxes.
–  If you are sensitive during your menstrual cycle, you may like to wax just prior or just after.
–  Alcohol tightens pores, so it’s not a good idea to consume alcohol before getting waxed.
–  Using sun protection is recommended when exposing your skin to the sun and is especially important during the first 24 hours post-waxing in order to avoid redness.
–  Let your waxer know of any medications you’re taking.  If you are under the use of AHA, Renova®, Retin-A® or corticosteroids such as hydro-cortisone, prednisone, Kenalog®, and Elocon® you SHOULD NOT get waxed in the treated areas. If you are under the treatment of Accutane® you should not wax at all.

However… THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP OF ALL – Choosing the right place to wax! Uni K Wax Centers are centers solely dedicated to waxing and committed to providing you with the most comfortable and hygienic spa-like hair removal experience. Why? Because we have a unique combination of a proprietary all-natural and elastic wax applied at body temperature, exclusive waxing techniques perfected over 20 years, and rigorously trained waxers that you will find only at Uni K Wax Centers.

Make your appointment today and enjoy the 15% off all services and products offered during certain hours.  Receive an additional 2,000 reward points (equal to $2) if you book online. Why wait? Click here to book online now.

A FREE GIFT to you for the Holidays!

Looking back and looking forward…

It’s the end of the year once again and all of us at Uni K Wax are very proud to continue to lead and stay at the forefront of the waxing industry.   When we opened our first center in 1993, we brought to the body waxing industry the unique concept of a professional waxing only center. The innovation only started there, since then we have provided many firsts. We were the first to provide an all natural elastic wax, applied at body temperature. We were the pioneers in the techniques that reduce ingrown hairs, redness, and makes waxing seamlessly ouchless.  We put together a one of a kind comprehensive menu of services for both men and woman. From the beginning and through today we strive to be true to our core principles of providing an all-natural, safe and affordable waxing experience.  After all, those are precisely what sets us apart and attracts our customers.

Staying on top requires forward thinking and a relentless desire to be the best.  CEO and Founder of Uni K Wax, Noemi Grupenmager: “It is not in my nature to stand still.  I always like to look forward and find ways to make our Centers and the waxing experiences they provide even better than they already are.  That’s not an easy task as we have set the bar very high.” During the past year, Uni K Wax has been featured in multiple media outlets for the many “firsts” Uni K Wax keeps bringing to the industry.

Most of our “firsts” this year were geared specifically to improving our customer experience and to providing programs to make waxing even more affordable.

–  We introduced the Unik TeenClub!  A program specially designed to cater to teens waxing needs. The UniK TeenClub offers special pricing for selected services we have identified as the most commonly requested by teens and provides a reward program that allows them to save even more. Read more

–  We added a new technique to give extra comfort to our already “ouchless” waxing process. Three new products were added as part of an additional complimentary service procedure provided before and after select waxing treatments.   The new technique is highly beneficial, especially for those with particularly sensitive skin or those who are prone to ingrown hairs.

–  We made our series not only available online but redeemable at any center and nationwide.

–  We improved our online experience so that our customers can easily shop and book online as well as receive relevant information on services, pricing, hours of operations, promotions, etc.

–  We ran a Facebook contest that had thousands of entries and great positive customer feedback.

In addition to these, a record number of new Centers opened and you can expect a lot more Centers to be opening this year as well.  Noemi Grupenmager is very optimistic about the future growth of Uni K Wax. “2014 will be another great year. We will continue to see more and more Centers opening up throughout the United States and even more innovations. I am very grateful and appreciative for our customers’ loyalty, for the work and dedication of our waxers, our employees and all our franchisees, all of which make it possible to place Uni K Wax at the forefront of the Waxing Industry”. 

Our Holiday gift for you is one free underarms service to be redeemed in January 2014 when you spend $45 or more on services and products during one single visit this December.  Our gift cards or gift certificates make a great Holiday Gift and are available at any Center as well as online or via Facebook.  Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!

As we reach the end of 2013 and start 2014, all of us at Uni K Wax are very proud to keep true to our commitments of providing  all-natural, safe, and affordable waxing for both women and men.   From everyone at Uni K Wax Centers, we thank you for your loyalty and wish you a very happy Holiday Season and healthy New Year !

Waxing made all-natural, safe and affordable!

As we reach the end of 2012, all of us at Uni K Wax are very proud to have provided another year of natural, safe, and affordable waxing for both women and men.  As we start 2013, we continue our commitment to our core principles of “natural”, “safe”, and “affordable”.   After all, those are precisely what sets us apart and attracts our customers!

It’s always easy for us to sing our own praises, but it is even better when our customers do it for us. Especially if it comes from a well known beauty editor for Glamour Magazine! “I go to the Uni K Wax center chain and find they’re geniuses at giving you excellent, consistent results at a great price,” says Andrea Pomerantz Lustig in her recently released book How to Look Expensive , which as the cover so eloquently puts it, is about looking great without breaking the bank.

Uni K Wax has always wanted to make waxing accessible to as many people as possible while ensuring a safe and natural hair removal experience.  So when Andrea describes her bikini wax experience at Uni K Wax,”…(It) costs just $25 and is so pain-free it almost feels like I am at a spa,” we knew that we had hit the proverbial nail on the head.  Editor-in-Chief of Shape Magazine, Tara Kraft, gives a similar description when she refers to Uni K Wax’s all-natural wax that “makes “ouch” a thing of the past and leaves my legs silky for weeks.” 

Departures Magazine explains Uni K Wax’s waxing formula as follows; “the unique formula has an elasticity to it that allows the wax to grab the hair without hardening on the skin, making removal almost painless.”  However, our proprietary high-quality wax is only one piece of the puzzle.   There is a special technique to be utilized to ensure every customer receives the best service from a specially trained and licensed hair removal specialist.  Uni K Wax has earned more than once “The Best Waxing Service in Miami” by Allure Magazine.

Being “natural, safe and affordable” – all at the same time and in a consistent manner – is what really sets Uni K Wax apart from the rest. “Though not all waxing salons/bars are as consistent, Uni K has figured it out,” Pomerantz Lustig states. “They use a green proprietary natural wax that contains pine sap, bees wax, and Aloe Vera, and each client gets their very own freshly sterilized container that is emptied afterward. (no worries about double dipping!)”

Noemi Grupenmager, CEO and Founder of Uni K Wax, is very optimistic about the future growth of Uni K Wax. “2013 will be another great year. We will see more Centers opening up, and more special offers geared to keep making our unique services affordable while safe.” She takes the opportunity to express, “I am very grateful and appreciative for our customers’ loyalty, for the work and dedication of our waxers, our employees and all our franchisees, all of which makes it possible to place Uni K Wax at the forefront of the Waxing Industry”. 

Our Holidays gift for you is one free underarms service to be redeemed in January 2013 when you spend $25 or more on services and products during this December.  Our gift cards or gift certificates make a great Holiday Gift and are available at any center as well as online or via facebook.  Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!
