Jump to: Making the Cut
Narcissists agree that an identical twin is no substitute for looking in the mirror. Erase years of sibling similitude with the head-to-toe beautification of today's Groupon. For $45, you'll get $100 toward any combination of salon and spa services at Zafar.
As befits its ancient Persian meaning of "victory," Zafar is an ideal place to wage war against unruly tresses, loitering tensions, jagged nails, and jellyfish skin with the help of the indulgent emporium's arsenal of massage therapists, stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians. Get a stylish new cut ($42+ for women, $29+ for men) and double-process color ($80+), or revolutionize your mane with braids ($30+) or a permanent wave ($77+). A makeup lesson ($55) will teach you how to look runway-ready, while an accompanying 30-minute relaxation massage ($45) will banish your modelesque neuroses.
After a hard day at the Pop-Tarts factory, your feet are achy and your nails are split and cracked from hours of exposure to scalding strawberry substitute. Perk up your hand-toes with Zafar's signature manicure (including a custom mask, hydrating treatment, and hand massage, $25) before restoring your toe-fingers with a paraffin treatment ($14). You can also refresh your countenance with an express facial (30 minutes, $35) and de-stress eye treatment ($10), or make up for your routine avoidance of sunlight in favor of World of Warcraft with a safe and natural-looking spray tan ($30). Once you've got your pallid skin beachable, make yourself more aerodynamic with a new bikini wax ($40).
You must call (816) 527-0002 to make an appointment in advance.

Annette Jones's grin on the glossy cover of KC Business magazine is a constant reminder that Zafar's guiding concept is "do what you love." It's a motto Jones obviously took to heart, since her shop’s utterly appealing trio of services—Zafar is one-third spa, one-third salon, and one-third boutique—still stirs her passions today.
Within the hybrid shop, shoppers duck into changing rooms, where they step into the sequined leggings, feed sugar cubes to the animal print coats, and strike poses in the mini-dresses that comprise Zafar's wardrobe. At 10 hair care stations, technicians cut, style, and color, or select from a menu of natural hair services that ensure successful 'dos for almost every strand type. Facials, waxing, and massage keep skin smooth and muscles supple, and nail treatments even include a manicure option for men.
