NOEMI GRUPENMAGER, FOUNDER AND CEO OF UNI K WAX CENTERS AND UKW FRANCHISING COMPANY, BRINGS BODY HAIR REMOVAL, ALSO KNOWN AS WAXING, OUT OF THE SLOW, EXPENSIVE AND SOMETIMES ROUGH HAIR AND NAIL SALONS AND INTO ITS OWN DELUXE YET REASONABLY PRICED SERVICE CENTERS.
Dissatisfied with the expensive and slow hair removal services available at hair and nail salons across the country, back in 1993, Noemi Grupenmager imagined a waxing-only center with a welcoming atmosphere that offered clean and professional services at affordable prices. Having sensitive skin herself, Noemi also recognized the need for a wax that was all natural and that did not aggravate the skin with harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients.
With all of this in mind, Noemi founded the first Uni K Wax Center twenty-one years ago, in Miami Beach, Florida, and became the first person ever to open a center devoted exclusively to waxing. She developed her own proprietary elastic Uni K wax, made of natural beeswax, essential oils and a special pine tree resin, which took three years of in-depth laboratory research to create. Uni K Wax is applied at body temperature and can be removed painlessly. Uni K’s 100% all natural wax is made fresh each day in prized manufacturing facilities located in Miami, Florida.
Uni K Wax Center revolutionized the world of waxing as the first and only waxing center with face and full body hair removal services for men and women. It was at the very first Uni K Wax Center that the Brazilian Bikini wax was born to accommodate the fashionable “string” bikini when others only offered the bikini line wax. The Brazilian Bikini is now a popular service world-wide and it is perfected at Uni K Wax Centers. Today, Uni K’s detailed price menu of hair removal waxing services for both men and women include facial waxing, eyebrow waxing and full body waxing including bikini waxing for men and women.
Uni K Wax Center’s sole dedication to waxing and the unique concept of pain-free elastic wax differentiated Noemi’s business from any other…
The design of Uni K Wax Centers upgrades the entire waxing experience by offering competitive prices, welcoming receptionists, pristine waxing rooms, your own personal waxing warmer filled with your own freshly made wax and, of course, superior face and body waxing services performed by professional waxing experts. All waxers must attend the Uni K University and become certified in their exclusive technique. Uni K’s award-winning waxers are trained in the theory and practice of antisepsis and asepsis, the principles of cleanliness and disinfection, the functionality and physiology of the skin (the body’s largest organ), contraindications and adverse reactions, hair growth patterns, pre and post-depilatory care and professional customer interaction.
Uni K Wax Center’s sole dedication to waxing and the unique concept of pain-free elastic wax differentiated Noemi’s business from any other, and today, these same two characteristics continue to separate the brand from other hair removal services on the market. Uni K Wax Centers have become an established concept with a recognized name and appeal, and growing customer base. Today, Uni K Wax Centers are located throughout New York, Florida and California with plans to develop over 100 franchises and affiliates across the country by the end of 2015, making this Miami-born business the largest in its kind in the world.
