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!

In honor of Earth Day and its “all natural” culture, in April we want our customers to “Go Green” with our all natural GREEN wax! Created by combining the resin of a unique aromatic pine tree, beeswax and other natural ingredients, our wax not only removes hair from the root for long-lasting hair removal, it also exfoliates and softens the skin leaving it as smooth as silk. Our wax also happens to be a beautiful and natural shade of green, as you can clearly see. And if there was ever a place that you might have wanted an all natural, gentle, waxing solution, it is probably the bikini area! 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!

Did you know that Uni K Wax may reduce hair growth?
Change your old hair removal habits and experience the “Unik Miracle”. The combination of our wax and waxing methods weakens and diminishes the hair follicle. As a result, it improves the re-growth of the hair, making it thinner, sparser, softer and lighter. Repeating the process regularly is the key to seeing the best results. Don’t spoil results accomplished with Uni K Wax by going back to old habits!

Not all skin is created equal and the skin on your face is different than that of your body. It is thinner and more sensitive, so it needs extra care. Our proprietary, 100% natural and gluten free wax is ideal for the most sensitive skin. Applied at body temperature, our unique formula allows our wax to maintain its elasticity at all times. Our removal techniques, combined with its elasticity and temperature, allows the wax to be extremely gentle on the skin. Our wax is made of a special pine resin which contains natural oils that moisturize your skin and leave it nourished and silky smooth. Our unique wax is one of the many reasons why our customers love waxing with us.
Our customers also trust our waxers. We know your face needs extra attention, and our award-winning waxers treat every individual with his or her needs in mind. All of our waxers are trained at Uni K University and become certified in our exclusive techniques, which include: theory and practice of antisepsis and asepsis, the principles of cleanliness and disinfection, the skin, hair growth patterns, pre and post-depilatory care, and professional customer interaction. The many hours of hands on training that our waxers receive prepares them for the various types of skin and hair types they might encounter during services. In addition, our facilities maintain optimum hygienic standards. Each center has its own on-site lab, and each customer gets his or her very own sterilized warmer with fresh wax.
You will find our menu of face waxing services to be extremely comprehensive, ranging from eyebrows, upper lip, ears, chin, nose, nostrils, neck and even the whole face! Uni K Wax, which is already widely known for its affordable prices, offers the same services to both men and women.
So, start the New Year with confidence and radiance. Treat yourself, and take advantage of our 20% OFF on all face waxing services for men and women during the entire month of January. We believe you will leave any of our centers with a glowing smile on your face. We wish you a happy and healthy 2013!

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!

We all know that most reward programs are complicated and we end up frustrated. Remember that last long flight you took? You vowed that you would get home and figure out a way to earn enough points to upgrade to first class or get a free companion ticket. Unfortunately, most reward programs are too confusing to understand. The points can only be used at certain times and the whole point system is baffling. Points expire or are worth so little that the amount of money we need to spend on a credit card to make it worth something is outrageous. Reward programs are the proverbial carrot on the stick. At Uni K Wax we understand your frustration and have designed a Rewards Program that is simple, easy to use, and gives immediate satisfaction! Not possible you say? It is possible, we promise. We are going to tell you HOW our program works and we are going to share the secrets of how you can quickly accumulate points! (Try to have an airline tell you that!)
Simple rule for rewards points: For every 1,000 points you earn you get $1 of value. Easy, right? So, knowing that simple rule, we want to share with you some ways to rack up those points quickly!
Here is a simple idea to accumulate points. When you are finished with your service, just book your next waxing appointment with the receptionist and voila, you will have 1,000 points. It’s simple, isn’t it?
What if you forget to pre-book your appointment? No problem! You can get even more points if you book online instead! Every time you book online, you get 2,000 points to use on your next waxing appointment or keep accumulating them for future use. How easy is that??? We have a customer in New York who lives in the same building as the center and she books online, goes downstairs, and gets $2 off her service. She has actually made this her regular routine and does this every month.
But how do you earn a lot of points? Easy. On the day of your birthday you get 5,000 points. That’s our present to you. Your birthday only comes around once a year and we want that day to be extra special! You want even more points? No problem! Refer a friend! For every friend you refer, you get 5,000 points but make sure they mention your name! (Your friend also gets a 10% discount on their first visit!) Refer a couple of friends each month, book all of your appointments online, and you could easily accumulate thousands and thousands of points with very little effort. You are earning lots of points and you have yet to spend a single dollar! Oh and speaking about spending money, when you come in for your waxing services, you also earn 10 points for every $1 you spend and those start to add up as well.
Here are some important items 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 Rewards card.
2. ALWAYS bring your Rewards 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.
3. It’s FREE! Yep, enrollment is free and there is no annual fee for our Rewards Program. There is no minimum amount of visits and the points never expire!
4. You can redeem your points at ANY TIME and at ANY Uni K Wax Center!
5. When you refer a friend, make sure they write your name on the new customer intake form.
Still want more points!? Well, since you asked, this month’s special gives you twice the points! Earn double reward points for every dollar you spend on services, products, gift cards, and gift certificates, but even better, if you refer a friend in November, you will get 10,000 points!!!! So make sure that you sign up for our Rewards Program at your next visit. It’s free, it’s easy, and it’s rewarding! If you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, what better way to start than by purchasing an online gift certificate for your friends or via our Facebook page and earn double the reward points! Have a wonderful November and grab as many points as you can!
One last thing…. join our mailing list! Each month you will receive our promotions some of which are exclusively for our Reward Members. Even more points on the way! To keep up with new benefits and changes to our Rewards Program, visit our web site at http://www.unikwax.com/rewards-program/.

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.
