I just moved here from LA and was a little leery about finding a new stylist. I was highlighting and lowlighting to cover grey but also to achieve a “natural” look. After checking out my hair and talking, Rachel offered the option to double process, selecting a base color close to the high-/lowlights I’d been doing and then adding a few highlights on top. I had always worried that a “base color” wouldn’t have the dimension and depth that I was seeking – but I was wrong! My color is better than ever, looks so natural, and the cut was great too! Rachael is very talented and listens to what you’re trying to achieve with color and then provides the best options to achieve it. I lucked out finding a hairstylist on my first try here in Vegas!”

I found this salon on Yelp after going through much difficulty finding any info from other salons in the area. I don’t understand how salons these days could have no websites. I want to know what I’m walking into, and a phone call just doesn’t cut it anymore. I am vacationing in the area and needed a haircut, and since this is an Aveda salon, I knew that it would be reputable. I had a great cut from Rachael and will return in the future when I’m back in the area. The price was great and the whole process was efficient and friendly.

I’ve been going to this salon for almost 8 years. Not only are the prices fair but the quality of work is why I keep going back. Rachael is professional, upfront, and honest. Her focus is on you at all times. Anytime I’ve wanted to try a new way to style my hair, she is always up for it. She has never said it would be too much work or shied away from learning something new. And when I’ve asked for a drastic cut change, she has always advised me well. The products are exemplary and my hair shows it. I’d highly recommend this salon.

Rachael at High Maintenance Salon is amazing! I am REALLY picky about my hair, and I after many bad cuts while living in California, I went to an Aveda salon and got the best cut of my life. Then I moved to Las Vegas and looked up Aveda-trained stylists here and found Rachael. I have been to Rachael twice, and my cut has been amazing both times. I have been to other stylists that cut my hair great the first time, and then not so great the second. With Rachael’s cut, it is easy to do, she is not scissor-happy, and it grows out like a dream. Usually, I get my hair cut and 3 weeks later, I can’t do it anymore. Not so with High Maintenance. I can go 6 to 8 weeks between trims, and my hair still looks good. I routinely spend a lot on beauty appointments and expect a lot in terms of quality of work and service. Rachael does not disappoint. She is professional, always on time, has a great array of products for purchase, and her services are fantastic. I highly recommend!

Rachael knows hair like no other! Being from way out of town, Ireland, I was nervous about visiting a new hair salon & hair stylist. Rachael put me at complete ease, we had a lot of fun, & I got a haircut that was literally perfect. Thank you so much, Rachael, and I wish you all the best in the future.

This was the best experience I have ever had in a hair salon!!! You really do have the owner, Rachael, all to yourself for your entire appointment. She is extremely knowledgeable and talented. I usually have to restyle my hair when I leave a salon, but not here!!! Rachael is AMAZING!!! I was visiting the Las Vegas area and went to her on recommendation from my daughter. My only complaint is that I won’t be able to regularly have her do my hair. Oh and I almost forgot: During the shampoo, she gives a head massage that relieves any head tension you have and will almost put you to sleep. I can’t say enough positive things about this stylist.

Rachael has been my hairdresser since 2002. My normal services include overall color followed by precision cut. Because I have used Aveda products for over ten years and due to Rachael’s expertise in Aveda color, even my closest friends did not realize that I color my hair until recently. (I ‘fessed up!) Rachael explains how to maintain the style at home so I always look my best. I love Sola Salons: having Rachael’s sole attention during my appointment, freeing me to ask about products, maintenance, and other services. Rachael is prompt to return phone messages, appointment rescheduling, and product needs. I highly recommend High Maintenance Aveda Salon!

Thank you again, fabulous Rachael! You are the most guest service-oriented stylist I have ever had. So lucky I found you all those years ago.

I am so happy with my hair!!! Thank you for making it super blonde last minute. I appreciate you.

Angela T., Client since 2011

Finally! Someone who listens, understands, & has the talent to execute your dream hair! Call and make an appointment today and put your mind at ease–you will not be sorry. This experience is worth every penny. She fixed my last botched highlight disaster in a way I didn’t think was possible. Make an appointment today & tell your friends–they will thank you and you’ll soon be fighting for appointments! Thank you, Rachael!!!

After a number of years getting my hair cut and colored by Rachael, I highly recommend High Maintenance Aveda Salon. My altered hair color blends so well with new growth that only I (and she) can tell that it’s grown out. The haircut is so easy to maintain as she pays attention to what my hair prefers to do. She knows hair!

Liana H.

I highly recommend this salon! Rachael is an amazing stylist who actually listens to what you want and focuses her time on you the whole visit. It’s hard to find a stylist who actually listens to what you want done with your hair and has the expertise to do it! She knows curly/wavy hair! I’ve been to many stylists who’ve cut my hair only to have a frizzy mess after going home. I will be going to her from here on out!!

Rachael is beyond marvelous! She is always on time, personal, attentive, I never have to wait, and my hair hasn’t looked this good in years! Can’t tell you how many people I have referred to her…Even my husband sees her now! Give her a try. Once you try her, you won’t try anyone else!

Thank you for a wonderful hair experience today!

“Rachael, thanks again for the fabulous new style. My husband loved it and said it was your best one yet.

Debra F., Client since 2004

Rachael does an awesome job on my hair every time. I love the cut and color, and she always styles my hair so it looks great. Also, the Aveda products make my hair look shiny and healthy and the color looks very natural and beautiful. Her prices are very good: I’ve paid way more at other salons in the same area and thought my hair looked just ‘okay.’ But I am really happy with the way my hair looks since I started going to High Maintenance.

I have been a client since 2003 and Rachael is the best. Her work is simply amazing and she goes the extra mile to make sure her clients look good and feel good. Thanks, Rachael


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my hair. Thank you for fixing it, Rachael!

I have been a client of High Maintenance Aveda Salon since 2003. Rachael is a very knowledgeable hair dresser, and her products are of the highest quality. I love the atmosphere at Sola Salons, where Rachael’s business is located. It is quite relaxing. Parking is always plentiful, so there is no hassle in getting in to the salon. I always look forward to seeing Rachael and getting my hair done. The entire experience is simply the best and my hair looks and feels great!

Last Sunday, a friend said my hair is so healthy looking—shiny & thick. Thanks, Rachael and High Maintenance Aveda Salon—your expertise creates the look I love.
