CELIAC AWARENESS MONTH – New to Uni K Wax or not? We have a special for you during the month of May

May is Celiac Awareness Month, a condition also known as gluten intolerance disorder. Uni K Wax is using its monthly promotion to help spread the word and raise awareness about this disease.

“We are very proud that all our products, including our all-natural elastic wax, are gluten-free” says Noemi Grupenmager, Uni K Wax founder and CEO, who is herself gluten-intolerant.

During May if you are new to Uni K Wax you can get a FREE Upper Lip (for her) or Shoulders (for him). If you are already a customer, you can receive $5 off when you spend $25 or more during your visit. Be aware that these offers are valid only Sundays and Mondays during the month of May.*

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. Celiac disease cannot be cured. Strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life is the only treatment currently available. This involves the elimination of wheat, rye, barley, and derivatives of these grains from your diet.

According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, “Celiac disease affects 3 million Americans, yet 83% of sufferers don’t know they have it.”  It is considered to be the most under-diagnosed common disease today, potentially affecting 1 in every 133 people in the USA including men and women of all ages and races.

In May we also celebrate Mother’s day…  and what better present for her than the gift of Uni K Wax – a gift card or a gift certificate for her to use towards any of our services or products!  Gift cards are available for purchase at any Center. Personalized Gift certificates are available online and via Facebook.

You can choose from multiple designs including ones specially created for Mother’s Day! You simply pick the card you like, the dollar amount you want to give, who it’s from and who it’s for, put in a unique message, and you are done! Best of all, you can print it on the spot, e-mail it right away, or schedule a specific day in the future for it to be sent via e-mail. So go online now or visit our Facebook page and buy a gift certificate for your mom to be sent to her on May 8!!

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!

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.”

Membership has its Rewards!

This month’s offer, “Share the Love, Refer a Friend”, is great for both the “friend” and the person “sharing”.  Refer a friend and we will give you 10,000 reward points (equal to $10) and your friend gets 10% off his or her first visit.

Our Uni K Rewards Program is growing every year into what we believe is the most “rewarding” in the industry!  Our program is designed to reward you for everything you do at Uni K Wax Centers from booking online to purchasing products and services.  EVERYTHING earns you points!  Simple rule for rewards points: For every 1,000 points you earn you get $1 of value, redeemable on any product or service at your next visit. Easy, right? So, knowing that simple rule, we want to share with you some ways to rack up those points quickly!

–  On your Birthday earn 5,000 reward points.
–  Refer a friend and earn 5,000 reward points.  (This month is double the points)
–  Pre book your appointment and earn 1,000 points.
–  Book online and earn 2,000 points.

The benefits only start there. We are committed to provide even more advantages to our Reward Members. As you may have noticed during January, we rolled out our first email special “one day” promo! In honor of the Grammy Awards, Uni K Rewards Members received 10% off facial waxing services for the day!  The best part of the offer, aside from the 10% off of course, was that you could easily follow a link, book your appointment online, and get 2,000 reward points without even picking up the phone! You will be seeing a lot more of these surprise promotions throughout the year, so if you are not enrolled yet, it’s not too late, sign up at your local Uni k Wax Center… don’t miss any other rewarding opportunities!

Here are some useful things to remember:

1. Enrollment is EASY!  During your next visit to any Uni K Wax Center, make sure the receptionist enrolls you and gives you your card.

2. We have a special rewards program for teens 17 years old and under, the TeenClub, which in addition to the points has the benefit of discounted prices for the most common services for a teen.

3.  ALWAYS bring your Uni K Rewards or TeenClub card to your appointment and give it to the receptionist to scan when you arrive so she can ensure that you receive the appropriate points and avoid duplicate accounts.

4.  It’s FREE!  Yep, enrollment is free and there is no annual fee.  There is no minimum amount of visits and the points never expire!

5.  You can redeem your points at ANY TIME and at ANY Uni K Wax Center!

6.  When you refer a friend, make sure they write your name on the new customer intake form.

7. There is no limit to the amount of friends you can refer, which means no limits on the rewards you can earn!

Speaking of opportunities, a gentle reminder that February 14th is Valentine’s Day.  What could be a better gift than a gift certificate for a Uni K Wax session? You can go online and purchase a beautiful gift certificate from our web site and choose from a number of designs.  We even have a design specifically for Valentine’s Day!  Just click HERE and get a gift certificate for that someone special. You have the option to email it or print it yourself.

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 !

MAY IS ALL ABOUT HER!

Mother’s Day has arrived, a nice reminder that our mothers are very special women!  At Uni K Wax Centers we make sure that during May we make it all about her!. This May, Sundays through Tuesdays between 2 – 5pm, we are offering  ALL women $10 off any total purchase over $50, $5 off any total purchase of more than $25, and $3 off any other total amount purchased.  Whether that special woman enjoys the smooth skin benefit of our all natural wax or simply needs some of our nourishing products, this month we want to make her feel unique and beautiful.

This promotion is valid for all new and existing women “Uni K Rewards” members only, so make sure to sign up for the program and start building up points!  Treat yourself to any one of our waxing services, stock up on our products, and visit your nearest Uni K Wax Center!  As always, let your girlfriends know about this special and bring them along also! Bringing a friend is always a great way to earn 5000 Rewards points, which is equal to $5 that you can use towards any product or service!

 

Noemi Grupenmager, Uni K Wax founder, talks about ingrown hairs.

An ingrown hair is a hair that curls and grows back into the skin. This can be caused by thick and dry skin, oil blocking the hair follicle, or dead skin cells plugging up the pores. An ingrown hair is usually just a minor irritation, but can be painful, unsightly and if left untreated, an ingrown hair could become infected.

“If you wax regularly you will have a very slim chance of getting an ingrown hair.  However, tight clothes, like leggings, stockings and jeans can cause ingrown hair problems.  Exfoliating will help to diminish the chance of getting razor burn and ingrown hair, however, avoid exfoliating one to two days before and after you get waxed with Uni K, because our unique wax will also exfoliate your skin while removing unwanted hair,” explains Noemi during her interview with Beauty World News!

Uni K Wax has created a gentle, cosmetically elegant  roll-on formulated for ingrown hair that does not dry out the skin. We also have a great loofah for exfoliating the skin which you can use yourself, especially in the most common areas you get ingrown hairs. Ask for the loofah at your Center!

Did you know that Uni K Wax offers personalized gift certificates online and via Facebook?

In addition to gift cards that you can purchase at any Center, we offer gift certificates online and via Facebook.  You will find multiple designs to choose from and this month, we have added the Mother’s Day design! (Yep, the cute one the girl is holding in the ad above!)

You pick the dollar amount you want to give, the design, who it’s from and who it’s for, put in a unique message, and you are done!  What could be easier?  Best of all, you can print it on the spot, ,email it right away, or schedule  a specific day in the future to be sent via e-mail. So go online now or visit our Facebook page and buy a gift certificate for your mom to be sent on May 12th!!
