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 !

Everyone knows that October is filled with the color pink to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. Pink ribbons, pink shoes, even the National Football League gets into the action by having the players wear pink and the referees throw pink penalty flags. However, what most people don’t know is 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 $446 million globally.
Consider the following facts as an example:
- A man is 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than a woman is to be diagnosed with breast cancer.
- One new case of prostate cancer occurs every 2.2 minutes and a man dies from the disease every 17.5 minutes.
- In the US, one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime making it the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men after skin cancer
- If detected and treated early, prostate cancer has a 97 percent treatment success rate.
On average, men die five years younger than women. The suicide rate is four times higher for men than women and 24% of men are less likely to go to the doctor compared to women.
How can we all take action?
Movember is all about changing the understanding and attitudes men have towards their health. The Mo is Movember’s ribbon, it’s the catalyst for change. The goal is to raise awareness and funds to support the cause.
Part of the funds raised are used to run the annual Movember awareness campaign, which inspires literally billions of conversations. Funds are also used to create and maintain engaging resources, which educate men on the health risks they face, how to stay healthy and how to take action if they become ill. Additionally, proceeds are used to fund innovative research to improve clinical tests and treatments for prostate and testicular cancer as well as to improve physical and mental health outcomes for men.
In an effort to begin to change the conversation and focus on the positive outcomes of early detection, Uni K Wax is pleased to partner with Movember to help support their cause in several ways:
1. The“Mo” Special for him - a full facial wax promotion (excluding the moustache of course) for only $50. This special is available to all men during the month of November except for blackout dates.
2. Uni K Wax will donate 5% of sales from all its Centers preformed during the month of November for the following men’s waxing services: ears, nose, nostrils, and full face.
3. There will also be a donation box placed on the counter of every Uni K Wax Center. These boxes come directly from Movember and we encourage you to make a donation during your next waxing appointment or to simply stop by on your way home or to work and make a donation. These donation boxes will be out throughout the month of November and 100% of the money raised through them will go to Movember.
Uni K Wax is always committed to making a positive impact! We are partnering with Movember to do just that! If you are a man or a woman reading this blog, we urge you to visit www.movember.com so that you can learn more about this organization and share their important information with friends, family, and loved ones. Please help Uni K Wax support this very important cause and raise awareness for men’s health!

Tips for customers coming in for waxing from Noemi Grupenmager herself!
Question: Often after any type of facial wax (eyebrows, lip, chin, etc.) and a workout, a breakout usually follows. Is there any way to avoid the breakout without having to skip my sweat session?
Answer: A wax session at Uni K Wax will not result in a breakout, so yes there is away to avoid a breakout, visit Uni K Wax Centers. This is because Uni K Wax uses an all-natural elastic wax, which moisturizes the skin as it gently opens the pores to remove the hair with minimal discomfort, then a soothing chamomile gel is applied on the waxed area. All of these procedures are unique to Uni K Wax, which is why we can promote that there is no break out following a visit to our centers. For those who are unable to visit a Uni K Wax Center, there are other things that you can do to minimize breakouts though. Choose a wax that is not hot, and contains no chemicals, is gentle on the skin and does not cause discomfort.

Everyone deserves a gift from time to time! As we are enjoying the warmth and fun of summertime, Uni K Wax thought it would be a great time to thank you for being a customer and a Uni K Rewards or TeenClub member, with a free gift, to help you extend the sensational summer feeling on your skin. The kind you feel after a Uni K Wax.
Simply spend $45 or more in services during a single visit in August, and redeem one of the following services for free in September:
> Underarms (him/her/teen)
> Upper Lip (her/teen)
> Nostrils (her/him)
Even better… this offer is not limited to just one appointment during the month! If you visit twice and spend $45 or more during each visit, you will earn two free gifts in September.
We have more great news! Starting August, we are introducing a new technique to add extra comfort to our already “ouchless” waxing process. Your waxer has the details on the benefits of this new process, and has undertaken new training on this wonderful procedure.
Three new products will become part of an additional complimentary service procedure provided before and after select waxing treatments. Customers will enjoy an even more pleasant experience, both during and after a service. Our new technique is highly beneficial, especially for those with particularly sensitive skin or those who are prone to ingrown hairs. Once again, Uni K Wax brings to its customers another industry first, with you in mind!
This new technique includes a simple three step process…
- 1. An individual intimate wet wipe is given to each customer, before their bikini wax or buttocks strip service begins, to wipe the area to be waxed, for an additional level of hygiene and cleanliness.
- 2. An individual, instant and disposable cold pack is given to each customer who is having any Bikini Wax or Full Face Wax (including touch-up). The cold pack is placed on the waxed area and helps to calm sensitive skin, by contracting the pores, it also prevents bacteria from entering and ingrown hairs from forming.
- 3. A Post depilatory gel for bikini waxing made from cool and calming cucumber, chamomile and calendula extract, to comfort, refresh and hydrate. The gel is another helpful way of preventing future growth of ingrown hairs. After applying the gel you will feel even more relaxed with silky, soft skin, as you leave Uni K Wax Centers.
We are very proud to keep providing new techniques, services and products to make waxing enjoyable, safe and hygienic for everyone! This new technique is simply the latest in a string of industry innovations from the original natural elastic wax in the “Wax Only” Center!
Please note: The following Uni K Wax Centers will be implementing the new technique as follows:
Florida – All Centers, August 1, 2013.
New York – Upper East Side and Murray Hill, August 1, 2013.
Astoria, Bay Ridge, Flatiron and Wantagh, August 3, 2013.
California – August 6, 2013.

In recognition of the increased number of loyal teen Uni K Wax customers coming to our centers, we are introducing the Unik TeenClub! A program specially designed to cater to teens waxing needs.
It is not uncommon for moms to bring in their daughters for a wax when they come in for their own waxing appointment, but more and more, the trend that we are seeing throughout all of our centers is groups of girls coming in together for a wax. Like other types of grooming, visiting a waxing center and meeting up after a wax is something teen girls enjoy doing together, to share the experience.
The UniK TeenClub is another Uni K Wax Center first. We want teens that come to our centers to feel welcome and cared for. The UniK TeenClub offers special pricing for selected services we have identified as the most commonly requested by teens.
The menu of services for members of the Uni K TeenClub includes:
- - Eyebrow Clean Up
- - Between Eyebrows
- - Upper Lip
Just around the edges
- - Panty Line
- - Panty Line (Deep)
- - Lower Legs
- - Upper legs
- - Full Legs
- - Underarms
- - Lower Arm
Membership in the Uni K TeenClub is free and for customers 17 years old and under and whether they receive a service from the TeenClub Price Menu or they chose other areas of the body to wax, they must have, without exceptions, a parent or legal guardian permission. UniK TeenClub members receive their own card which identify them and allows them to enjoy the benefits of the rewards program to save even more money. One of the “coolest” benefits of the rewards program is the “refer a friend” promotion. For every referred friend, not only does the friend receive 10% off their first waxing appointment, but the TeenClub member also receives 5,000 rewards points, good for $5 off their next waxing service. Click here to download and print Uni K TeenClub Refer a Friend Postcard to give to your friends.
There are many reasons why Uni K Wax is the ideal choice for teens waxing needs. Teenagers today are more informed in their grooming options, and being waxed with the Uni K Wax elastic, all natural, gentle wax, made specifically for sensitive skin types, is the right choice. Our trained waxers who are skilled in how to wax delicate skin types and in making the customer feel comfortable, ensures an enjoyable waxing experience. Finally, our beautifully decorated spa-like centers, with the highest standards of hygiene, provide a pleasant and safe atmosphere.
Uni K Wax are excited to add another innovative program to better serve our customers and to continue to provide them with an all-natural, safe and affordable waxing alternative!

Tips for men coming in to Uni K Wax, from Noemi Grupenmager herself!
The most common question men probably have is – why waxing and not just shaving?
Here is what Noemi says: “Waxing with Uni K Wax is the smarter choice. Shaving removes hair at skin level only, and hair reappears in one to four days. By continually cutting the hair, you are in fact, stimulating its growth, however, by continually waxing, the hair growth will diminish over time.”
The wax used at Uni K Wax Centers is specially designed and one of the many attributes it has is that it is an elastic wax. Noemi sums it up the following way: “One thing that many people don’t know is the difference between hard wax, strip wax and elastic wax, or that elastic wax even exists! Strip wax makes for a tedious, slow and painful procedure, often leaving the skin feeling sticky. Hard waxes break and crack. Elastic wax stretches to remove hair without strips, causing less of a pull to the skin, meaning a more comfortable removal experience.” So if you are looking for a more professional groomed look, lasting longer, ditch the razor and head into Uni K Wax centers.
…that Uni K Wax was the first waxing center to offer identical services to BOTH men and women???
When founded in 1993, Noemi Grupenmager dreamed of a center that ONLY provided WAXING services. There were plenty of places that offered waxing as part of their services, but Noemi was thinking bigger. Uni K Wax was not only the FIRST waxing only center in the United States, but also the first waxing center to cater to both women and men, offering all services to both. The name “Uni K Wax” refers to “unique” in that it was the first waxing only center and “Uni” refers to uni-sex.
Uni K Wax has been at the forefront of waxing for men and specializes in the proper techniques specifically for them. Where previously only athletes and movie stars would wax, men are taking their grooming more seriously . At Uni K Wax, a man can not only have his back and shoulders waxed, he can wax his face, arms, eyebrows, chest, stomach, legs bikini or just about any other place he desires
At the time, few appreciated Noemi’s vision, but she was clearly far ahead of the curve. To read more about how Noemi built Uni K Wax into a success using this vision, click here.

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!!

No matter what kind of bikini service you choose, Monday and Tuesdays between 2 – 5pm, you will enjoy a 20% discount For Him and For Her in the month of April! As women break out the bikinis and men pull out those speedos, there couldn’t be a better time to visit a Uni K Wax Center and enjoy an all natural waxing experience.
This promotion is valid for all new and existing Uni K Reward Members only, so make sure to sign up for the Uni K Rewards Program and start building up points! This April, treat yourself to any one of our bikini waxing at any Uni K Wax Center! As always, let your friends know about the special and bring them along. It is an easy way to earn 5000 Rewards points ($5) for each new person you refer to us.
Know your bikini wax styles!
At Uni K Wax, we offer a number of bikini waxing options for you to choose from. It might be overwhelming at first, but it’s actually quite simple. Here are the names and descriptions of the main styles we offer:
- Bikini Line – It’s pretty much exactly what it says. A basic bikini line wax removes any hair from the edges that would peek out of a standard bikini bottom.
- Deep Bikini - A deep bikini gives a little more protection than the bikini line. It removes a little further in.
- Brazilian Bikini – A Brazilian wax removes everything underneath, behind and leaves a small line in the front.
- Full Bikini – Removes everything! Not a single hair will be left and no matter what type of bikini you wear, there won’t be anything to stick out. Smooth like the day you were born!
Knowing which style you want is important, but it is even more important to have your bikini waxing done professionally. Being a specially “sensitive” area, the role of the waxers, the technique, and the wax are crucial for a pleasant and comfortable experience. Our wax is not only all natural, but one of the aspects that makes it perfect for bikini waxes is that it is applied at body temperature. The last place you want hot wax is “down there.” Our unique “green” wax is the perfect wax for that bikini area!
Did you know that Uni K wax centers offer “touch up” waxing?
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 (up to 12 days after your wax) 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 (up to 10 days after your wax) because facial hair has the tendency to grow faster than body hair for some people such as woman 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 customer to be discouraged when they notice hairs appearing in the surface of their skin a few days after their waxing service. We also want to provide them with an inexpensive option to compliment our already affordable prices. 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.

How to prepare for your Spring Waxing!
Here are some generic helpful tips to remember:
* Let your hair grow out about one-eighth to one- quarter of an inch before going in for waxing.
* If you are sensitive during your menstrual cycle, you might want to avoid a bikini wax during those days.
* Alcohol tightens the pores, so it is not a good idea to consume before getting waxed.
* Using sun protection is always recommended when exposing your skin to the sun and it is especially important during the first 24 hours after waxing in order to avoid redness.
* Let your waxer know of any medications you’re taking. If you are under the use of AHA, Renova®, Retin-A® or corticosteroids such as hydro-cortisone, prednisone, Kenalog®, and Elocon® you SHOULD NOT get waxed in the treated areas. If you are under the treatment of Accutane® you SHOULD NOT get waxed.
However… THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP OF ALL – Choosing the right place to wax!
Uni K Wax Centers are centers solely dedicated to waxing and committed to providing you with the highest quality and most comfortable spa-like hair removal experience.
How can they achieve this? Because they have developed a “Unik” combination of a proprietary all-natural and elastic wax applied at body temperature, exclusive waxing techniques, and rigorously trained waxers that you will find only at Uni K Wax Centers.
Did you know that Uni K’s wax exfoliates your skin?
Your skin loses about 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells from the surface almost every minute, even though you do not see it happening. This is why exfoliating is so important to keep that healthy glow! Unik’s wax not only removes unwanted hair, but it removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, leaving it silky smooth and vigorous!
