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!!

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!
November 1, 2015
November is officially designated as National Healthy Skin Month in the U.S. All month long, people are encouraged to learn about the many functions of the skin and how to keep it healthy. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) first implemented November as Healthy Skin Month in order to raise awareness about the importance of keeping skin fresh, hydrated and healthy all year round. A vital necessity when waxing, to have hydrated and healthy skin between waxing visits.
Also our special elastic wax, lightly exfoliates the skin, enabling your skin to maintain a higher level absorption when you apply the moisturizer for greater skin hydration.
Healthy and hydrated skin allows for a better waxing experience as the skin is plump and the hair is easily removed from the root when waxed.
Since Uni K Wax’s inception in 1993, its founder and CEO, Noemi Grupenmager, envisioned a waxing-only center to offer services for both men and women, which would raise the industry and marketplace standards. “Having sensitive skin myself, I recognized the need for a wax that was all-natural and relaxing when applied and removed. A wax that would not aggravate the skin with harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients,” Noemi explains.
Noemi opened Uni K Wax first location in Miami Beach, FL, using her own proprietary all-natural elastic wax, made of beeswax, essential oils and a special pine tree resin, which took three years of in-depth laboratory research to perfect. 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 nourishes the skin leaving it smooth and glowing. Since 1993 to this day, Uni K Wax Centers only use all-natural products.
Uni K Wax’s commitment to healthy skin is further reflected in its highest standards for cleanliness and hygiene. In every Uni K Wax Center there is an on-site lab where the wax is prepared each day and every customer receives their own freshly warmer of wax, exclusively for their service. When the service is completed the warmer is returned to the lab and the assistants discard any remaining wax, clean, and disinfect the warmer in preparation for the next service.
In celebration of Healthy Skin Month, Uni K Wax is rewarding its customers with a $5 gift when they spend $50 or more and a $10 gift when they spend $75 or more, a great offer which is applied at the time of check-out from the service. The offer is valid during November from Sunday to Tuesday for new and existing Reward members, both men and women. Ask at the Center for full terms and conditions.
The featured package for the month of November is also in honor of Healthy Skin Month – titled – Healthy Skin Package, featuring:
Full Brazilian Bikini Front and Back, Full Face and Underarms at a great Package Price. Additionally, each of these services are eligible for a Touch-up service, to keep your skin healthy through the whole month.
Come visit our Centers during November to pamper your skin and feel the first and truly only all-natural waxing experience available on the market.
