NOVEMBER IS ALL ABOUT HIM – 10% OFF Wednesdays to Sundays.

Everyone knows that October is filled with the color pink to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. However, most people don’t know that November is becoming a month dedicated to Men’s Health Awareness.  In fact, there is a movement called “Movember” committed to having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. What started in 2003 in Australia as 30 men growing moustaches, or “Mos”, has grown to millions of men around the world growing moustaches to support awareness for Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer, and Mental Health in the month of November. Since then, this charity foundation has raised more than $649 million.

In that spirit, Uni K Wax is featuring an offer only for HIM during November. Male Reward and TeenClub members get 10% OFF with the purchase of 3 or more services every single visit Wednesdays through Sundays*.

Waxing isn’t just for swimmers and cyclists – men of all ages, races and professions wax.  It is estimated that 94 million men over the age of 15 in the United States remove their body/facial hair regularly. Of those millions, 77% (ages 18-35) “MANscape” their shoulders, backs, chests and bikini areas (Learn More).

Uni K Wax is proud to be the only company in the industry that has been offering the same exact services for men and women since its inception in 1993. This means that at Uni K Wax, a man can not only get his back and shoulders done, he can have his face done, his arms, eyebrows, chest, stomach, legs, and believe it or not, even a bikini wax, which has become one of the most popular services for men at our Centers!

All of our professional waxing staff have attended an extensive course at the Uni K Wax University where they are taught how to wax, both men and women, in the shortest amount of time, with our beneficial elastic wax and focus on customers’ comfort during the waxing experience.

Take advantage of this offer during November and visit us for a natural “ouchless” waxing experience.

 

 


*Valid for new and existing male only Uni K Wax Rewards and Teen Club Members during November 2016.  Customer must have a minimum of three services during a single visit to benefit from the 10% off the total invoice.  Not valid for packages.  Cannot be combined with any other offers, products, packages, series, or gift certificates. Code: P-Nov16-Him  No cash value.  To learn more about the Uni K Wax Rewards program, read full terms and conditions visit http://www.unikwax.com/rewards-program/. Uni K Wax Centers are independently owned and operated.

Go Green! Get Points!

This April, lets celebrate “Earth Day” all month long with DOUBLE REWARDS POINTS for every service and product you purchase! *

On April 22nd each year there are Earth Day celebrations held in more than 192 countries around the world. Earth Day is meant to show support for protecting the environment.

At Uni K Wax we are proud to be environmentally conscious and to offer our customers a “Green” alternative for hair removal. We have developed a proprietary eco-friendly natural wax which took three years of in-depth laboratory research to perfect:

–  Made from 100% natural ingredients
–  Environmentally friendly
–  Hypoallergenic, biodegradable and non-toxic
–  Vegan friendly and gluten free
–  Made in the USA with a low carbon footprint
–  And it happens to also have a green color…

A wax that today is referred to as the Elastic “Ouchless” Wax because when it is removed, it provides little if any discomfort.  Applied at body temperature and specifically made for sensitive skin, it gently removes hair and at the same time exfoliates and nourishes the skin leaving it smooth and silky.

So this April, “Go Green”, go to Uni K Wax and get twice the points for every dollar you spend on services and products.

OUR HOLIDAY GIFT TO YOU!

As we reach the end of 2015, Uni K Wax is very proud to continue to lead and stay at the forefront of the waxing industry.   Thank you all for your loyalty and support!

As a token of appreciation to all our loyal Rewards Members, we want to give you a Holiday Gift –  free underarms service, to be redeemed in January 2016, when you spend $50 or more (him/her) or $30 or more (teen) on services and/or products during any single visit during the month of December. 

Innovation continues in 2015

When Uni K Wax opened its first Center in 1993, the founder and CEO, Noemi Grupenmager, envisioned a waxing-only center to offer services for both men and women which would raise the industry standards.  It is that innovative thinking that allowed Uni K Wax to bring to the market a unique all-natural, hygienic and ouchless body waxing experience. When we read customers’ testimonials, or different media publications, we know Noemi’s vision has become a reality.  Everyone describes their visit at Uni K Wax as “the most comfortable waxing experience they have had”.

Staying on top requires forward thinking and a relentless desire to be the best.  Noemi Grupenmager says: “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. From January to November, Uni K Wax has enjoyed over 2,467,199,789 Circulation and 2,508,488,789 Impressions from the Media.

In 2015, Uni K Wax continued to enrich the “all natural waxing experience” with new innovative services and Center openings.  Some of the key events that occurred during the year included:

     – The launch of the new Boxers and Collar waxing services exclusively for men and only available, for the first time, at Uni K Wax Centers. Read more about these two new services in our June blog

     – The introduction of the new Boyshorts waxing service offered exclusively for women and available, for the first time, at Uni K Wax Centers. The Boyshorts waxing service is designed to provide a comfortable sensation for this area of the body against the softness of the fabric as well as provide an extra level of cleanliness.

     – Adding more Touch-up services to the Touch-up menu as well as extending the time for a service to be eligible for a Touch-up, from 12 to 14 days. This means that you can have the same service done within 14 days of your last wax or previous Touch-up at any Uni K Wax Center at special discount prices, as shown in the Touch-up pricing list. Read more in our July Blog.

     – Opening a new Center in Hoboken, New Jersey for the first time.

     – Expanding in Manhattan, with the opening of new Centers in Hells Kitchen, Cooper Square and East Village.

     – Great exposure for our new High Precision Tweezers available in many colors was not only well embraced by customers but the media gave them excellent reviews as well – Girls’ Life, Genlux, Beauty Sweet Spot and Hollywood Life.

     – The introduction of “The Featured Package of the Month.”  A special monthly package which is offered at a discounted price, only for that specific month. This is yet another way we offer our customers opportunities to save on their waxing services.

This month’s featured “Festive Season Package”, includes Full Face, Full Legs and Underarms for a reduced priced of $112 for her ($28 off the regular price) and $144 for him ($36 off the regular price).

Our gift cards or gift certificates make a great Holiday Gift and are available at any Center as well as online or via Facebook. 

Noemi Grupenmager is very optimistic and looking forward to the many exciting plans for 2016.  She takes the opportunity to express, “I am very grateful and appreciative for our customers’ loyalty and the dedication of each Uni K Wax Center”. 

As we reach the end of 2015 and start 2016, we want wish you and your families a very happy Holiday Season and healthy New Year!

Introducing new grooming services for men – ANOTHER UNI K WAX FIRST!

Uni K Wax is proud to announce the new Boxers and Collar waxing services!  These new services are offered exclusively for men and are only available, for the first time, at Uni K Wax Centers!

The Boxers waxing service is designed to provide a comfortable sensation for men who wear Boxers underwear as it is the softness of the fabric against this area of their body and it is also an extra level of cleanliness.  As a male customer eloquently explained “What I love from the bikini waxing is the way the bikini area feels with no hair and the way the cotton briefs feel against the skin”.  Of course, there is an intimate feeling as well when the hair is removed from this area, yet another benefit of waxing.

Noemi Grupenmager, Uni K Wax CEO and founder, came up with this innovative service inspired by a casual conversation she had with another male customer. “He told me that men have different waxing requirements than women.  The bikini services work well for women who wear brief bikini underwear, but men’s underwear is different and for this reason, he requested that we consider waxing services to cover the different types of underwear that men wear”. Subsequently, Uni K Wax is now offering the Boxers waxing service in two different length options: short and long

While Noemi Grupenmager was creating this new service, she thought about another need men have. Noemi saw that the trend was for men to wear shirts and t-shirts that showed more of their chest, which as a boat neck shirt and longer v’neck shirts.  Noemi, then realized there were those who like to show a hairless neck line but don’t want the full chest hair removal.  That is how the two new men’s Collar waxing services were conceived – round and v-neck – so we don’t see the tuffs of hair peaking over the collar.

Waxing is the untold male grooming secret, with short and long term benefits.  It is estimated that 94 million men over the age of 15 in the United States remove their body/facial hair regularly. Of those millions, 77% (ages 18-35) “MANscape” their shoulders, backs, chests and bikini areas (Learn More).   Uni K Wax is proud to be the only company in the industry that has been offering the same exact services for men and women since its inception in 1993. All of our professional waxing staff have attended an extensive course at the Uni K Wax University where they are taught how to wax, both men and women, in the shortest amount of time, with our beneficial elastic wax and focus on customers’ comfort during the waxing experience.

The launching of these new services in June, coincides with Father’s Day, and comes as a celebration of all men in our lives. Uni K Wax once again establishes itself as a pioneer and innovator in the body and face waxing industry, always looking to better serve its loyalty customers.

These 4 new services are available for unlimited touch-ups. This means that you can have the same service done within 14 days of your last wax or previous touch up at any Uni K Wax Center.  The touch-up services are also at special discount prices, as shown in the touch-up pricing list.

So to you men, we invite you to come visit any one of our many Uni K Wax locations for a unique MANscape and try our new services (prices shown in the chart on the right).  And if you’re looking for a unique gift for a special man in your life, consider purchasing a gift card at any location, or you can purchase a gift certificate online!

The Uni K wax team wishes all of you a Happy Father’s Day and enjoyable MANscaping!

GET READY FOR SPRING! – 7 Helpful Waxing Tips

GET READY FOR SPRING! – 7 Helpful Waxing Tips

Spring is around the corner and so is Spring Break! It’s time to get spring ready and show off your smooth and silky skin! We want to help your skin glow with a special promotion throughout March. We are offering a $10 gift when you spend $65 or more during a single visit in March! The gift will be applied as a discount at checkout*.   As we start to shed our winter wardrobes and break out our sleeveless shirts and skirts, there couldn’t be a better time to visit a Uni K Wax Center and pamper your skin.

This promotion is valid for all new and existing Uni K Reward and TeenClub Members only, so make sure to sign up for and start building up points! It is free and you can do it at your Center.

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

1.  Let your hair grow out about one-eighth to one-quarter of an inch before going in for waxing.

2.  Exfoliation is very important up until one to two days before and after a wax. Regular exfoliation helps prevent ingrown hairs.

3.  Daily moisturizing is necessary to keep your skin soft in between waxes.

4.  Moisturize from the inside as well, drink a lot of water to plump up the skin to allow the hair to be removed from the follicle easily and prevent breakage of the hair at skin level.

5.  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.

6.  Let your waxer know before your appointment if you have allergies, health conditions, or are taking any medicine.  If you are under the use of certain medication, check with your waxer, especially topical medication applied on the skin area that you are about to wax.

7.  However… THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP OF ALL is to choose the right place to go for waxing! Uni K Wax Centers are solely dedicated to waxing and committed to providing you with the most comfortable and hygienic spa-like hair removal experience.  How do we achieve this? With a unique combination of a proprietary all-natural and elastic wax, provided in individual wax warmers made specifically for each customer appointment which is applied at body temperature, exclusive waxing techniques perfected over 20 years, and university trained waxers that you will find only at Uni K Wax Centers.

And here is one more offer for you this month… we have a special Spring ready package this month of Lower legs, Lower Arms and Lower Stomach. The price of the package is $63 for her (reg. $71) and $87 for him (reg. $97).  Cannot be combined with above offer.

Spring Ready Package for March - Waxing

So hurry to our Centers and make sure to take advantage of our spring promotions during March.
