If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the eyelashes are cats napping on the windowsills. Fluff your eyecats with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a full set of eyelash extensions at ROCA Salon & Spa (a $250 value).
ROCA Salon & Spa's semi-permanent lashes come in various curves, lengths, and thicknesses. An experienced aesthetician will choose the lashes that best match yours, then apply anywhere between 40 and 70 lashes individually to the eyelid between each of your own, natural lashes, creating a lush, full set of peeper flutterers that looks completely natural. The process can take anywhere from one-and-a-half to two-and-a-half hours, and with proper care and occasional touch-ups, these extensions can last more than two months.
ROCA has been turning ordinary eyelids into alluring glamour-things for more than five years, so it’s had time to perfect the craft. Many of the staffers have either a bachelors or masters degree, and the lead aesthetician is a licensed medical aesthetician as well as a champion snowball roller. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

ROCA Salon & Spa
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.
