Our experience makes the difference

Not all stylists are equal!  Experience and advanced education make a huge difference in the results of your style.


We offer a talent level pricing structure based on experience. This provides us the opportunity to provide a stylist that suits every beauty budget.

You are free to choose one stylist for your hair color, and different stylist for your haircut. 

Balayage at ROCA Salon Kansas City

ROCA is proud to be a teaching salon where we offer the equivalent of a Master's degree to licensed stylists wanting to advance their career opportunity.  Our Mentor Stylists are among the top 5% of stylists in the nation and are the top talent in our company.  Each of these stylists works as a team together with one or more Associate Stylists to deliver a "celebrity experience" to their discerning guests.  You will love their attention to detail as they are orchestrating your cut and color, as well as the excitement of having four hands creating the artistry instead of just two!
