Roca saved my HAIR! – In an act of cheap massochism, I tried to dye my own hair with a box from Walmart. The results were disastrous-- picture Ronald McDonald meets the chick from the Fifth Element! In a panic, I trolled the internet looking for a savior, and Roca salon-- specifically, Joey--was it. Joey was so knowledgeable about color and overall style, that after a 2 day process I looked like a model instead of a clown. He even tweaked my haircut and touched up my makeup-- free! Plus he was sooo friendly and did not make me feel bad about my horrendous self-dye job. I will never buy a box from Walmart again-- Joey is a color master! I have been all over the world, including Vidal Sassoon in Chicago and Germany-- Roca is definitely among the best anywhere!
Lost the best they had – And didn't want to tell me! Well, I found him again. Oz is at Imij Salon on 20th and Main. I'm just a loyal fan of Oz.
Oz is one of our talented, advanced stylists. As for space issues, we are indeed feeling cramped, which is why we have purchased a much lager facility just 1 block west of our current location. It will be an incredible, state-of-the-art facility, scheduled to open around the end of this year.
Best place in KC!! – I visited a dear friend here in the city and in desperate need of a haircut. She spoke so highly of her salon and her stylist (whom she can't say enough great things about).
I decided to make an appointment and see what she was so passionate about this place.
To cut a long story short.... I now make my monthly visit to Roca for my haircut at Roca. My new stylist, Oz, is truly amazing. I make it a point to make another appointment before I return home to Miami.
It's nice to hear you visit from Miami so often, and we're glad to be a part of your experience!
Not worth the price – My experience did not meet my expectations. It was not a relaxing environment for me. The pedicure area was so cramped with misc items, boxes behind the chairs and just stuff all around, that I could barely climb into the chair and all during the pedicure I got to view and hear ALL that was going on in the rest of the shop. I have never had tissue between my toes before instead of the toe guards to protect the polish until it dries completely. The staff performing the pedicure did a fairly good job, but I felt she was not very experienced. Again, Just NOT worth the price.
Best of the Best – I've had hair disaster after hair disaster since moving here from New York last year. (I had to go back to NY twice just to get it straightened out!) I have finally found the only colorist who could deliver what I was used to, and even better! Rhonda is truly a master of her craft. I found her listed as one of the best stylists in Kansas City in KC Magazine. Believe me, she IS the best! She teaches color and her knowledge is incredible. My hair feels and looks better than it ever has. She trained at a Sassoon school and gave me a fabulous new haircut, too! Her prices are quite reasonable for her sophisticated talent in this city; she could easily charge $500 and up in New York for a haircut OR color! (I might add that she offers intelligent conversation,too, which is a rarity!) And, her assistant is adorable and does a great blow-dry! Don't bother searching around - I have done that for you, and Rhonda is THE BEST!
Rhonda is in love with her profession, and it shows! She is the "go to" person on our team for color formula questions. Both she and her husband, Rod, trained at the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Academy and have a clientele that seek out that specific training, knowing it is the "Harvard" of hair design. So glad you're in love with your hair again!
Like no other stylist – So I found my new stylist (JOEY) when he was nominated in KC Business Magazine as a rising star in Kansas CIty. His Bio matched him so well he was everything the magazine said he was. He first looked me in the eye and said "What style are we creating for you" no one has ever asked me that and really listened to what I wanted. The color was amazing and rich. He created layers I can even style and make look like he did in the salon.
The best part of my experience with Joey was while he was styling my hair he was educating me on how to get the look at home and then to top it off He did my makeup and completed my style I asked for and more.
Ladies of Kansas City if you want a great stylist, go to Joey at Roca Salon he truly gives you the total look. He is so reasonable too I even went shopping afterwards which never happens after the salon!!!
We nominated Joey as a Rising Star due to his enthusiasm for this business. He received his entire training as an apprentice under Rhonda, rather than attending cosmetology school, and it shows. He completed his training in Nov. '09 and has since attracted a great group of clients as yourself! He goes above and beyond to have you leave looking like you're ready to hit the town running!
As good as it gets! – I am a recent transplant to mid-Missouri, and have to travel 2 hours to KC for any kind of quality service. I have lived in Detroit, Chicago, and Atlanta so I am used to big-city amenities, including skillful and current hair stylists. I have thick, straight and fine hair that is partially grey and I am VERY picky about my haircuts and the look of my hair - at age 55, I want to be up to date, but not over the top. Obviously, I am not going to waste my time with a less than satisfactory hair salon. After much internet analysis of what KC had to offer, I decided to try ROCA and was not disappointed! My stylist, Curtis, is a charming young man and actually taught me something new about my hair that past stylists (whom I loved) never mentioned. My haircut looks great and is easy to manage. I have not yet had the opportunity to try any other salon services, but plan on it soon. I didn't think the prices were out of line for the quality provided, and compared to a larger city, they are reasonable! I have learned in looking at internet reviews for KC businesses that I have to read between the lines to distinguish between the opinions of those who are more urbane vs. less in order to get opinions that are pertinent to what I am looking for...so don't be turned off by a few negative comments.
We try to pair our guests with the stylist whom we feel suits their needs best, based on their hair type, length, and desired style, rather than just the "next available". Curtis is a talented stylist with years of experience, and he really takes the time to listen to what you like and don't like. Thank you for your kind words.
Best Salon In Town! – I would recommend ROCA to anyone... and have, many times! I have had nothing but great experiences with the stylists there, and I am very pleased to have finally found a stylist who I can use consistently and who does wonders with my hair (Joey)! The atmosphere is relaxing, the stylists and other employees are all fun and easy to talk to, and going in there is always like a little break from the real world. They carry unique and high-quality product lines that you can't find elsewhere in this city, and are, as far as I'm concerned, stylists of the highest caliber, comparable to those you might find in NY or LA. Only complaint is that it can be pricey, but I have never been anything but pleased with the services I've had there, and I'm a firm believer that spending a little bit more for better service and professional stylists is important when taking care of your look!
We love stories like yours! Joey received his entire professional education as an apprentice under Rhonda, one of the salon owners. We are excited to see his career bloom, due to wonderful referrals as your own.
Extremely supportive of a clueless husband! – I was searching for a place to bless my wife for Christmas. I had no idea where to look...ROCA's website was very helpful and Laura was a professional at walking me through my options.
If my wife is as pleased as I am, I will be a HERO and not a zero :)
I love Joey!! – I recently moved from Lawrence, KS to Kansas City...where I had the same stylist for 10 years! I was very nervous about finding a new stylist and decided to try Joey based on reviews from this site. I was not disappointed!!! He did a fabulous job with my hair!!! I recently cut bangs and I love them. I am constantly getting compliments about my "new" look. Thanks Joey:)
