Happy Birthday to us! This year we celebrate the 21st year of the birth of Uni K Wax and it greatest invention, the “Brazilian” bikini wax!
It was 1993 when Noemi Grupenmager created the first “waxing only center” in South Beach. As she recently explained in the The Huffington Post, “I set out to reinvent the industry and began with the concept of a waxing-only center. There were three main things that I wanted to incorporate into the center: an all natural wax (made especially for sensitive skin), fast waxing service at an affordable price. In order to make this business possible, I needed to create a system of speedy waxing because at that time, there was typically only one wax done a day in a salon. I wanted the new waxing center to be able to service at least four waxing services per hour per waxer.”
Up until that time, when men and women wanted to have hair removed, they would go to a salon or spa that catered to many different types of services. You might have gotten your nails done at the same place you got waxed. Perhaps you even got a massage or facial where you received your waxing treatment. None of these options were particularly hygienic and most importantly, the technicians that did the waxing were not always specifically trained in waxing techniques. Uni K Wax changed all of that.
The innovation didn’t stop there; Noemi also introduced a new waxing style – the now famous “Brazilian Bikini Waxing”. As she continues in The Huffington Post, “In the 80’s, Brazilian bathing suits were very popular and I realized that you needed a special waxing style to be able to wear the Brazilian bathing suits. I created the Brazilian Bikini Style of Waxing, which in some shape or form is now available from every waxer around the world. I also coined the word “waxer” rather than aesthetician, which everyone uses now. I also created the Brazilian Bikini Style wax with buttocks strip as well as the Full Bikini, which removes all hair down there.”
Today, 21 years later, Uni K Wax has grown into a renowned brand with over 30 franchisees around the United States. We are especially proud of the adoption of the Brazilian bikini wax by the entire waxing industry! Women and men have widely embraced this waxing modality. Even Celebrities, TV shows, and magazines… In 2000 during an episode of the popular TV show, “Sex in the City”, Carrie Bradshaw found a new swagger in her step after waxing it all off. In 2003 Victoria Beckham announced that Brazilian waxes should be compulsory at age 15. A few years later Eva Longoria told Cosmopolitan that “every woman should try a Brazilian wax once.” Jennifer Aniston and Rihanna were also revealed as a fan of the Brazilian wax. In 2013 The Brazilian Wax made its debut on The View when host Sherri Shepherd got waxed on national TV.
As a token of our appreciation for your loyalty and to celebrate our 21st birthday with you, we are offering a 21% discount on the Full Brazilian Bikini front and back for both men and women as well as a 21% discount on any panty line service for teens! This offer is valid for BOTH Uni K Rewards Members and TeenClub Members from Monday through Friday during the month of April from Center opening until 11 am and then again from 2 pm through 5 pm.
We hope to see you all this month!
Here are some quick stats on the “Brazilian” and why women prefer it.
– 62.8 % of Glamour readers wax their bikini lines regularly.
– 25% of Playboy centerfolds remove their hair completely.
– 12% of men prefer a full on Brazilian.
– 32% of men prefer a small shape.
Why Women Prefer Brazilian
– Easier to clean and manage.
– To make sure hair is not showing through their swim suits.
– It is the general preference.
– Shaving can cause ingrown hairs.
– OB-GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson, “Hygienically, you’re going to decrease your risk of STDs and decrease risk of body odor that a lot of women are worried about.”

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!

Bikini Waxing is one of Uni K Wax’s best selling services for both women and men- yep for both! This is why during the month of Halloween we want to TREAT ALL our existing and new customers with a special promotion for a Bikini Wax.
We get lots of questions regarding a bikini wax…here are the most frequent Q & A’s:
Q: What is the difference among all the Bikini Wax services?
A: It might be overwhelming, but it’s actually quite simple. We, at Uni K Wax, are the pioneers of the Brazilian and Full Bikini Wax. We named our Bikini Wax services as follows:
- Bikini line: The name is self-explanatory. Removes a strip of hair along the front area outside the panty line.
- Deep Bikini: As the name suggests, it is like a Bikini line but goes further down adding extra comfort.
- Brazilian Bikini: Removes almost all hair, leaving only a landing strip of hair in the middle, it can be a rectangular strip (most popular) or triangular shape.
- Full Bikini: Removes all hair in the front area leaving it completely hair free.
- Bikini Top: Removes a straight line of hair at the top and may be added to any of our Bikini services or can be done by itself.
Q: Does a Bikini Wax hurt?
A: This is by far the most popular question. It sounds more intense than it actually is. Our elastic wax stretches to remove hair without strips and combined with our fast technique translates into a more comfortable hair removal experience for you. In fact, Shape Magazine calls Uni K Wax the “ouch-less wax.” Our wax is always applied at body temperature making it a relaxing experience.
Q: Why would men want a Bikini Wax?
A: For the same reason women do. They don’t like hair in the area, also for hygienic and aesthetic purposes, the skin is more sensitive to the touch, they feel cleaner and neater, and gives the perception of being longer.
Q: How long does my hair need to be in order to be waxed?
A: The ideal length for hair to be removed is 1/8” to ¼”.
Q: How is Bikini Waxing more effective than shaving?
A: Uni K Wax is the smart choice to switch from shaving to waxing. Our technique weakens the hair follicle as a result your hair will start growing back slower, lighter, thinner, and sparser. On the contrary shaving will make your hair grow faster, thicker, coarser, and fuller with more than one hair growing from each pore. Also, waxing is safer avoiding the daily nicks, cuts and in-grown hairs that come with shaving.
Q: How can I transition from shaving to waxing?
A: We offer a unique service called “Touch up,” that allows you to have the same Bikini Wax service within 12 days of your last appointment at any Uni K Wax Center. This service will help you even out the regrowth of your hair and get you to a normal hair cycle.
Q: How often should I get waxed?
A: It depends on the hair regrowth, mostly between 4 to 6 weeks. During the summer and in some humid places it could be a little less.
Q: What can I do to feel more comfortable about getting a Bikini Wax?
A: At Uni K Wax, we specialize in the Bikini Wax and we pride ourselves on having the most professionally trained waxers that make you feel comfortable with our fast Bikini Waxing technique.
Q: How long does a Bikini Wax service take?
A: An appointment for a Bikini Wax can last 10 to 20 minutes depending on the type of service.
Q: How far in advance should I get a Bikini Wax before wearing a swimsuit?
A: 1 or 2 days is fine. If your skin is sensitive, don’t forget to apply sunscreen in the exposed area.
Q: When is the ideal time to wax?
A: Anytime is a good time to get waxed, but if you have your period and are very sensitive, refrain during those days.
Q: How should I take care of my skin in between waxing services?
A: You need to keep your skin healthy and hydrated in order to have a good waxing experience. Make sure to drink lots of water to hydrate from the inside out and use skin products to take care of your skin. Uni K Wax Centers has developed a complete collection of skin care products including: Citrus Body Polish to exfoliate dead skin cells, Body Perfect Dry Oil which should be used daily and Ultimate Balm to seal in the moisture. See Uni K Wax complete Body Collection.
So now that you know a little more about a Bikini Wax, whether you are a frequent waxer or a rookie, take advantage on this month’s offer, our Halloween promotion called TRICK OR TREAT? We are offering a treat of a 20% discount for both HIM and HER on all Bikini Waxing Services (except on bikini tough-ups or buttocks strips) for the month of October, Sunday s through Tuesday s between 2- 5pm (except blackout dates). Looking forward to seeing you in one of our Centers. Happy Halloween!

This month at Uni K Wax we thought we would not only give college students a welcome back promotion, but also celebrate learning with a quick glance at some interesting facts about hair removal history.
It may be surprising but there is evidence of hair removal dating as far back as ancient Egypt if not further. The practice of hair removal appears to be common in many different civilizations through history, ranging from the ancient Greeks and Romans up through the middle ages and all the way up to today. There has been both a consistency and a couple of underlying reasons for removing hair: beauty and hygiene.
In ancient Egypt, they used a process called “sugaring”, which is a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and water that is made into a syrup or sticky paste. The paste is formed into a ball, flattened onto the skin, then quickly stripped away, removing the hair from the root. The Egyptians felt that waxing not only was hygienic, but it was considered a sign of purity. Sugaring is considered an early form of waxing and believe it or not it is still popular in Arabic countries today.
The Greeks felt the same way and it was reflected in their artwork which shows women completely smooth and silky with no hair on their bodies. The Romans followed suit and are credited with having the first version of the “Day Spa”! Rooms were set aside at the public baths that allowed both women and men to remove hair from their bodies. When the Roman Empire fell, the practice of hair removal fell to the wayside. It wasn’t until the Crusades of the 12th and 13th centuries that it was back again in Europe. Although the knights were searching for the Holy Grail, they encountered the custom of hair removal in the Middle East and brought it back to Europe.
Americans, by contrast, are really late to the game. It might seem commonplace now to see athletes like Michael Phelps without a single hair on his body, or models with perfect skin with no hair anywhere on their bodies, but women in America didn’t really start waxing until the 1940’s, when bathing suits became a little more abbreviated. It goes without saying that the “bikini line waxing” became fashionable in the 1960’s, when bikinis came into fashion and women didn’t want hair to show on the sides of the bikini bottom. It then evolved to the Brazilian waxing when the almost g-string “Brazilian Tangas” (or thongs) came into fashion. Women would only leave the small triangle that the Brazilian Tanga would cover and have all the rest removed.
The ” Brazilian Bikini” and “Full Bikini” were first introduced by Uni K Wax in 1993, revolutionizing the hair removal world. In 2000 this modality gained notoriety and began to be embraced widely among women. Why 2000 you ask? Well the most popular show on TV that year was “Sex in the City”. Women everywhere were watching when Carrie Bradshaw found a new swagger in her step after waxing it all off, and once Carrie was bare down there…, well, the rest it appears is history. It’s now commonplace to see even men waxing on a regular basis. Whether it is their back, shoulders, legs, or even, dare we say, a bikini wax, men like the feel, the look and hygiene of less hair.
Thankfully, science and technology have really taken hair removal to a new level. Uni K Wax’s sophisticated waxing techniques combined with its 100% natural wax, specifically designed to adhere only to the hair and not to the skin, places Uni K Wax at the forefront of the waxing industry. Therefore, before you try any sugaring, beeswax, or some other kind of hair removal in your dorm room, give us a call or book an appointment online and take advantage of our special promotion for college coeds. It’s a lot safer, definitely not nearly as messy, a whole lot easier and best of all – natural, safe and affordable! So college students, check off waxing from your to do list… this September you can get $5 OFF if the total spent is $30 or more, and $10 OFF if $60 or more! REFER A FRIEND and earn 5,000 REWARDS POINTS (equivalent to another $5 off) and your friend GETS 10%OFF the first visit. Spread the word, share or tweet this. Ty & c u @ Uni K Wax 🙂

Why is Uni K Wax definitely unique (“unik”)? We could say that because we created the Brazilian Bikini Wax, which we did, or that we were pioneers in the the waxing industry by making waxing something more than an afterthought and creating the first dedicated specialized wax only centers, which we did. But there are a number of reasons that specifically allow us to accomplish what we do, and sometimes it’s the most basic things that are the most important. Since we are a waxing center, we should of course start with the wax.
Our wax is unique in a number of ways. We have designed our own wax to have certain properties that other waxes don’t. It took years to develop an all natural wax with the proper elasticity to remove the unwanted hair from the root, without pulling on the skin. Hard waxes will break and crack, making the wax difficult to remove and reducing the hair removal efficiency. Another important distinction is that our wax is applied at “body temperature”. This is an extremely important distinction because if the wax is too hot, not only it can be uncomfortable but sometimes even burn the person getting waxed. Last but not least ours is a 100% all natural and gluten-free wax making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin. We make our wax fresh every day in our prized manufacturing facilities in Florida. This all combines to make for a gentle long-lasting hair removal waxing experience that exfoliates the skin, softens the skin, and leaves it silky smooth. Noemi Grupenmager puts it this way: “A waxing center needs the foundation of a high-quality wax. Our superior and elastic green wax is without a doubt singular and can be found only at Uni K Wax Centers.”
However a high-quality wax is only one piece of the puzzle. There is a basic understanding of the body that a waxer needs to have in order to properly remove hair. Grupenmager continues, “It isn’t as simple as slapping on some wax and pulling it off the body. There is a technique that needs to be utilized and we are very specific with the technique we use.” Indeed, she is correct.
Uni K Wax Centers has developed a rigorous training program for each and every waxer that ensures every customer receives the best service from an educated licensed hair removal specialist. Our waxers must attend Uni K University and become certified in our exclusive technique. They are trained in the theory and practice of antisepsis and asepsis; the principles of cleanliness and disinfection; the functionality and physiology of the body’s largest organ, the skin; contraindications and adverse reactions; hair growth patterns; pre and post-depilatory care and professional customer interaction.
Superior wax, exclusive applications techniques mastered by highly trained professionals are the basic foundations of our unmatched quality. When you add to that, beautifully decorated centers with the highest standards of hygiene, excellent customer service, affordable prices, comprehensive variety of waxing services for both men and woman, you will agree with why Uni K Wax Centers are recognized to be at the forefront of the waxing industry for over 22 years.
As we make our way through summer, we thought it would be nice to “pamper” our customers, existing ones as well as new ones, to enjoy special discounts every Tuesday in August, from 2 to 5 pm. You get an instant $3 off regardless of the total amount you spend, or 5$ off if you spend $25 or more, and $10 0ff if you spend $60 or more. And remember to share this with your friends and get 5,000 award points (equivalent to another $5 off). Call your center for details, restrictions and most importantly to book your appointment right now… before it gets full! Online booking is also available.
