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.

SMOOTH SKIN ALL SUMMER – with our TOUCH-UP SERVICES now up to 14 days!

Touch-up services at Uni K Wax just got even better! Starting July 2015 we are offering touch-up services, available anytime within 14 days from the previous date you visited for the same service (we extended it from 12 to 14 days ). Touch-up services are offered at a lower price than a regular service, so it is a great way to save money and keep your skin smooth and beautiful.

You may wonder why we offer them. Well, there are four reasons:

1.  Our touch-up service was originally 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 hair that hasn’t reached the surface and cant be removed by the wax. Touch-up sessions will help remove the hair that was shaved and could not be waxed during the first session because it was too short.

2.  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.

3.  During the summer time, for some people, hair tends to grow faster. This is generally due to heat, perspiration, humidity and changes in hormones in the body during the warmer season. Save even more and purchase the Touch-up as a series, which can be the ideal solution to keeping your skin hairless during the entire season.

4.  Looking to keep that smooth skin all summer long, Touch-up services allow you to visit as often as you like and you will only pay the Touch-up price, come every week if you like.

The main reason why Uni K Wax can offer Touch-up services is because with our unique wax, allows us to promote that “NO-HAIR-IS-TOO-SHORT-TO-WAX”.  Our wax can remove hair that has grown shorter than the industry standard for removing hair which is ¼ inch length.  So we remove hair that is shorter than the industry standard, as long as it is above skin level. Of course your waxer is the expert at advising if the hair can be removed and will only remove the hair as a Touch-up as long as it is taken up to 14 days from the last touch-up or full paid service, she may ask you to return in a few days to ensure she can remove the hair if it is still within the Touch-up period.

The following are available as a Touch-up service:  Bikini (any style), Boxers (any style), Buttocks strip, Celebrity eyebrows, Collar (any style), Eye brows, Full face, Underarms, Upper lip.

How do you have a Touch-up? Touch-ups start from the first full paid service, then the you can return for a Touch-up of that same service within 14 days, and can benefit by not having to pay full service price again, and benefit from the Touch-up price each time, as long as it is the same service and taken within 14 days of the last Touch-up.  So now that the summer is here, buy a touch-up series, save and ensure beautiful skin all season.

One last thing, we are offering SUMMER SENSATIONAL FEATURED PACKAGE during July. It includes Lower Legs, Lower Stomach and Lower Back and is specially priced at $53 for her and $81 for him (a great saving on $61 for her and $91 for him which is the regular price). This is yet another treat for our Reward members during July.

Have a wonderful summer!

Introducing new grooming services for men – ANOTHER UNI K WAX FIRST!

Uni K Wax is proud to announce the new Boxers and Collar waxing services!  These new services are offered exclusively for men and are only available, for the first time, at Uni K Wax Centers!

The Boxers waxing service is designed to provide a comfortable sensation for men who wear Boxers underwear as it is the softness of the fabric against this area of their body and it is also an extra level of cleanliness.  As a male customer eloquently explained “What I love from the bikini waxing is the way the bikini area feels with no hair and the way the cotton briefs feel against the skin”.  Of course, there is an intimate feeling as well when the hair is removed from this area, yet another benefit of waxing.

Noemi Grupenmager, Uni K Wax CEO and founder, came up with this innovative service inspired by a casual conversation she had with another male customer. “He told me that men have different waxing requirements than women.  The bikini services work well for women who wear brief bikini underwear, but men’s underwear is different and for this reason, he requested that we consider waxing services to cover the different types of underwear that men wear”. Subsequently, Uni K Wax is now offering the Boxers waxing service in two different length options: short and long

While Noemi Grupenmager was creating this new service, she thought about another need men have. Noemi saw that the trend was for men to wear shirts and t-shirts that showed more of their chest, which as a boat neck shirt and longer v’neck shirts.  Noemi, then realized there were those who like to show a hairless neck line but don’t want the full chest hair removal.  That is how the two new men’s Collar waxing services were conceived – round and v-neck – so we don’t see the tuffs of hair peaking over the collar.

Waxing is the untold male grooming secret, with short and long term benefits.  It is estimated that 94 million men over the age of 15 in the United States remove their body/facial hair regularly. Of those millions, 77% (ages 18-35) “MANscape” their shoulders, backs, chests and bikini areas (Learn More).   Uni K Wax is proud to be the only company in the industry that has been offering the same exact services for men and women since its inception in 1993. All of our professional waxing staff have attended an extensive course at the Uni K Wax University where they are taught how to wax, both men and women, in the shortest amount of time, with our beneficial elastic wax and focus on customers’ comfort during the waxing experience.

The launching of these new services in June, coincides with Father’s Day, and comes as a celebration of all men in our lives. Uni K Wax once again establishes itself as a pioneer and innovator in the body and face waxing industry, always looking to better serve its loyalty customers.

These 4 new services are available for unlimited touch-ups. 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.  The touch-up services are also at special discount prices, as shown in the touch-up pricing list.

So to you men, we invite you to come visit any one of our many Uni K Wax locations for a unique MANscape and try our new services (prices shown in the chart on the right).  And if you’re looking for a unique gift for a special man in your life, consider purchasing a gift card at any location, or you can purchase a gift certificate online!

The Uni K wax team wishes all of you a Happy Father’s Day and enjoyable MANscaping!

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.

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!
