If anything, Skyline Downtown Salon is true to its name: housed in a renovated loft furnished with rustic wooden booths, the fourth-floor studio overlooks Kansas City's vista of industrial buildings and towers. While clients enjoy the view, stylists and aestheticians transform their hair, soothe façades with custom peels, and leave skin as smooth as laminated silk drapes with waxing treatments. Reflecting the attention to style of its location in the Crossroads Art District, Skyline Downtown Salon also offers haircare products from such companies as Oribe, Moroccanoil, and Bumble and bumble.
Angie Mathews knows that to look good, you need to feel good, and vice versa. She caters the menu of services at Mind-Body Nutrition Day Spa to strike such a balance between said mind, body, and the elusive spirit. Angie's signature treatment, the microcurrent face-lift, sends mild electrical currents through the skin to stimulate rejuvenation at the cellular level. With Cirepil wax from Perron Rigot, she deftly lifts away unwanted hair and stubborn glitter, leaving skin smoother than a freshly baked jellybean. Body wraps, massages, facials, body sculpting, and chemical peels round out her list of offerings, allowing her to promote relaxation and tend to sensitive skin.
Roca Salon & Spa’s roots draw upon more than 35 years of styling history, adventure, and love. It began with Vidal Sassoon–trained hairstylist Rod Cavner running a small Main Street salon named Blondie’s, where he was joined by his soon-to-be wife, and fellow Vidal Sassoon–trained hairstylist, Rhonda. After marrying and moving to Hawaii for four years, the duo returned with innovative new services, design concepts, and island-themed nicknames for friends. The result was Rhonda's three-year makeover of the space, which now includes eco-friendly, energy-efficient lighting and appliances as well as eye-catching decor.
The couple's time spent island hopping is evident in the pedicure room, where bamboo reaches up toward a sparkling chandelier that shines upon backlit purple-and-pink glass basins, in which toes bask in hot stones and Hawaiian mud. Stacey Soble of Salon Today interviewed Rhonda when the salon was named the third runner-up in the magazine's Salon of the Year design competition. Cavner said, "The bonus wow factor is the entire styling area floor has embedded phosphorescent chips which cause the floor to glow in the dark when the lights suddenly go off!”
But the decor isn't the only thing that earned the company recognition as one of KC Magazine’s best Kansas City salons in 2012. The talented team includes hair colorists who have trained in London, Paris, and Beverly Hills, as well as skilled aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians. The color experts work their magic in an elegant, modern area with see-through chairs, potted white orchids, and long strings of crystal beads that divide the space and give visiting Spider-Men an easy way to reach the ceiling.

The old saying goes something like this—if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime. It’s that line of thinking that drives the spa technicians at Jubils Salon & Day Spa. As they perform aesthetic services that range from haircuts to facials and massage, they strive to enlighten their clients with tips on how to better care for their skin, hair, and nails. Armed with these techniques, clients can then improve their at-home skincare regimens, which previously consisted of sleeping in tubs of oatmeal and never leaving the house.
