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.

Prebook your appointment to ensure you secure your ideal time to wax – you can book on line and receive 2000 rewards points!

YOU CAN ALSO BE THE FIRST – Win a $25 Gift Certificate

“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.”  Huffington Post

More than 20 years later Uni K Wax is still pioneering the waxing industry bringing numerous “firsts” to the market, ranging from product, services, waxing techniques,  marketing and business ideas . The list is long and keeps growing.

Here are a few of Uni K Wax “FIRSTS”:

  • ·        THE FIRST  to open a Center dedicated solely to body and facial waxing
  • ·        THE FIRST  to franchise a full body Waxing Center for men and women
  • ·        THE FIRST  to create an elastic wax made of all natural ingredients and applied at body     temperature
  • ·        THE FIRST to manufacture their own wax in the USA exclusively for use in their own Wax Centers
  • ·        THE FIRST to create the Brazilian bikini wax style
  • ·        THE FIRST to provide customers with their own freshly made wax, in individual wax warmers for each service
  • ·        THE FIRST to offer a program for teens: the Uni K TeenClub
  • ·        THE FIRST to create new industry techniques in wax applications

Click here to read the complete list >

Maybe the most important Uni K Wax breakthrough was to make waxing, for the first time, an enjoyable experience… because waxing should not be painful or harmful to your skin!!!  There is nothing more gratifying to read media reviews such as  the one in Metro New York saying “Skip the Advil – Uni K offers a pain-free waxing experience – no joke” or Shape Magazine recognizing  that Uni K Wax - “Is Taking the ouch out of waxing!”

This leadership that started in 1993 couldn’t have been sustained without our customer loyalty and support. It is always part of our fundamental values to listen to our customers and constantly serve them better and award them for their loyalty.

This month we are celebrating “being the first” and offering a $25 dollars gift to the first 500 customers who spend over $100 on product and/or services during a single visit to any Uni K Wax Center nationwide*. Remember that you have to be a Rewards or TeenClub Members to be eligible to participate. But, hey, enrolling is simple and free… just make sure the next time you visit your center to ask the receptionist to help you join and explain all the benefits of being a member, and ensure that your email address is current to enable you to receive your gift certificate, should you be one of the First 500.

February is a time for the special person in your life and we have a package to celebrate, just in time for Valentines day the Valentines Ready Package – Full Brazilian Front & Back, Buttocks & Lower Stomach – $74 for her (reg $83) and $113 for him (reg $126).

So hurry to your center… be among the first 500 customers to win a $25 gift certificate!

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.

OUR GIFT TO YOU!

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 were the first to bring to the body waxing industry the unique concept of a professional “waxing only” Center for both men and women. We created the first all-natural elastic wax applied at body temperature. We were the pioneers in the techniques that reduce ingrown hair and redness. Most importantly, we brought the first pain-free body waxing experience to the market.

When we read in our customers testimonials, or the different media publications, that they describe their visit at Uni K Wax as the most comfortable waxing experience,  then we know we are fulfilling our goal.

Just this past month, Metro New York, featured Uni K Wax Centers in an article titled, “Skip the Advil – Uni K offers a pain-free waxing experience – no joke” . The article spotlights Uni K Wax Centers’ hygienic, affordable and painless experience. The editor introduces Noemi Grupenmager, founder of Uni K as “…your fairy godmother – who spent three years perfecting the formula for her all-natural ‘ouchless, elastic wax’ before starting the hair removal franchise in 1993.”

Staying on top requires listening to our customers and constantly providing them with new ground-breaking products and services. Noemi Grupenmager is very optimistic about the future growth of Uni K Wax. “We expect 2015 to be another outstanding year. We will continue to see more Centers opening across the country and even more innovations, both in products and services. I am very grateful for our customers’ loyalty, for the work and dedication of our waxers, our employees and all our franchisees, all of which helps place Uni K Wax at the forefront of the Waxing Industry year after year”.

Our Holiday gift for you is one free underarms waxing service to be redeemed in January 2015 when you spend $45 or more (him/her) or $25 or more (teen) on services and/or 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 FacebookGive your loved ones the gift of the most comfortable waxing experience!

As we reach the end of 2014 and start 2015, everyone at Uni K Wax Centers want to thank you for your loyalty and wish you and your families a very happy Holiday Season and healthy New Year !

 *Valid for Uni K Rewards or TeenClub members only. One free underarms wax for her, him, or teen redeemable in January (between 1-2-2015 to 1-31-2015), when you spend $45 or more (him/her) or $25 or more (teen), in services and/or products during a single visit in December 2014.

ANNOUNCING NEW EYEBROWS & UPPER LIP TOUCH-UP SERVICES

Uni K Wax is known to be a leader and pioneer in the waxing industry, constantly bringing innovations to the market. If you follow our blogs you may already know that Uni K Wax was the first to create a professional waxing only center for both men and women, it was the creator of the Brazilian bikini waxing and the inventor of its unique all-natural elastic wax, applied at body temperature, that gently removes the hair providing for a non-irritating comfortable waxing experience. What you may not know is that Uni K Wax was also the first to offer what is called TOUCH-UP services.

TOUCH-UP sessions are provided for certain services within 12 days of the original waxing service at a lower price.  You may wonder why we offer them. Well, there are two reasons for that:

-  Our touch up service was created having in mind those customers who are transitioning from shaving into waxing.  Shaving causes hair growth patterns to become uneven; as a result, the first time a customer waxes there will be some hairs that haven’t reached the surface and won’t be removed by the wax. Touch up sessions will help remove that hair that was shaved and could not be waxed during the first session because it was too short. Our touch up services include; underarms, bikini, and buttocks strip.

-  We also offer full face touch-up because facial hair has the tendency to grow faster than body hair for some people such as women who are facing hormonal imbalances. This service is also beneficial for men who are transitioning from shaving into waxing their facial hair.

We don’t want our customers to be discouraged when they notice hairs appearing on the surface of their skin a few days after their waxing service, due to irregular hair growth. We also want to provide them with an inexpensive option to compliment our already affordable prices.

This month we are pleased to announce two additional facial touch-up services – Eyebrows and Upper Lip TOUCH-UP service. To complement the announcement, we have an equally attractive promotional offer for our Uni K Rewards Members: “A FREE TOUCH-UP SERVICE within 12 days after having an Eyebrow, Celebrity Eyebrow or Upper Lip Service”, provided that the customer had the original service during the month of September.At Uni K Wax Center, we make sure that all our customers experience the best results and get the maximum benefits offered by our all-natural waxing services.

Please remember that a touch-up is only valid for select services and must be taken within 12 days of the original full priced service (i.e. if you visit Uni K Wax September 1st, the last day to receive a touch-up of the service you got that day is September 13th). Once you get a touch-up service, you can come in and have another touch up within another 12 days.

Come visit your Uni K Wax Center during September to have your eyebrows and/or upper lip waxed and get your next touch-up session for free within 12 days of the original service(s).  And if you purchased a series in August, don’t forget to redeem your free service, which may form part of a free service (eyebrow or upper lip) in September as well!
