Welcome to Rachel Core's loft! I am very excited to meet you and would love for you to call or text me with any questions at any time!

Hair has been my passion since the time I could pick up a pair of scissors. (My mom's worst nightmare as I would cut everyones hair in their sleep. Ooops.) Luckily I continued this passion with a proper education and many years of experience. Graduating from the Brown Aveda Institute in 2009 and continuing my education with Vidal Sassoon among many other talented artists, I believe I can help you achieve your beauty goals while helping you feel comfortable and at home in my salon.

 I am blessed to have my own space to practice what I love and share it with you! I want your experience to feel magical. I want you to come in and feel like you are visiting a long time friend in the comfort of your own home. I offer complimentary scalp massages, and hand/arm massages with almost all my services. Most importantly I never double book leaving your time with me as your own. You are welcome to bring food, beverages or even a friend with you to make your stay more comfortable although water, coffee, tea, and chocolate is always provided! 

Don't wait to book! Contact me today at 440-522-2637 for your free consultation/hair service! I look forward to meeting you and I hope you have a wonderful day!

*I want you to be 100% happy with your hair! If you go home and feel you want any changes please contact me within 1 week and I will correct it for you free of charge.

Rachel is awesome! She really takes her time to get my hair just how I would like it. She is so flexible with her time and is willing to move things around to help fit me in. I also appreciate that she doesn't schedule anyone during my visit while we wait for my hair color to sit and her space is so comfortable and homey for while I wait! I love the way my hair always turns out. The color always ends up perfect and she blends my highlights so they'll look natural. Rachel also does my eyebrows! It's so relaxing and the way she shapes them improves the way my makeup looks. Rachel's space is a judgement free environment to have fun with your look. I would highly recommend paying her a visit!

Rachel is amazing!! Makes you feel right at home and she knows her stuff. I'm very picky when it comes to my hair. I've been going to another a salon for a long time now and they couldn't get me in for what I needed, when I needed it. So I asked around and had a friend recommend her and thought I would try her out. I'm so glad I did, not only is she convenient, she's amazing!!! I got my hair done on Friday at noon and today (Saturday) all day at work I can not tell you how many compliments I got on my hair! From the color, cut and style I'm in love. And the products she use, love! No strong smells and my hair feels amazing!!! Rachel not only does a great job, but she's friendly. It's like getting a salon job at your friends house. I will be back and so will my friends! Thank you Rachel!!!!!

I’ve been searching for a stylist I know can really take their time with my hair and I’ve finally found one! Rachel is so sweet and really cares about what she does. She takes her time to make sure you get exactly what you want. Give her a visit - you won’t regret being in her chair!

Rachel was so sweet!!! She was so pleasant to talk to. She really took the time to get to know me and my hair and give me the cut I wanted. I will be back for color and hair cuts from now on. I’ve found my new stylist!

I was referred to Rachel by a friend after struggling to find a hairstylist that fit my wants and needs after moving to Cleveland 3 years ago. I'm always nervous about going to new hairstylists because they never seem to understand what I want, even though I think I'm a pretty simple client. I didn't know where else to go so I figured I would give her a shot. After only one visit, I knew she was my girl! Rachel didn't just deliver the cut and color I wanted...she did it BETTER than I even pictured in my head. That's the kind of hairstylist every woman dreams of. Not only did she do an amazing job on my hair, she took so much time to get to know me and seemed genuinely interested in our conversation. It was later in the afternoon but she never acted in a rush to get done with our appointment... AND she gave me a hand and arm massage while my color was setting! So relaxing! Her loft is very clean and super cute. I can tell she takes so much pride in her work and she should because she does an amazing job. I can't wait to go back to her next month :)
Natalie W.
Rachel is amazing...she makes your hair appt. Very relaxing and fun. PLUS she does a great job and won't let you leave until your hair is just the way you want it. I would highly recommend making an appt. With her asap.
Tanya B.
I am so grateful to have found Rachel! She is an amazing stylist and a genuinely kind and caring person. My experience with Rachel was so pleasant... I left feeling relaxed, pampered, and absolutely loving my hair after a cut, color, and style. She was also so sweet and accommodating to squeeze me in for an updo before my wedding on short notice. Rachel really goes above and beyond for her clients. I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed!
Victoria U.
Since moving back from Los Angeles, I have struggled, for two years, to find someone as top notch as Rachel! As a mom, I haven't felt this attractive after a hair cut since pre baby! She was compassionate to my need for a low maintenance hair style and somehow still managed to create a style that dealt with my stick straight/random curl combo hair. As far as I am concerned, Rachel is a miracle worker! Oh, and she is incredibly sweet and fun. Like hanging with an old friend! Look no further, Rachel is your girl!
Lauren G.
I absolutely love my new hair cut, but most of all, I loved the overall experience. Rachel's loft is cozy and beautiful and she makes you feel right at home. She's also extremely outgoing and doesn't only treat you like a client, she treats you like a good friend. I really like the fact that she uses organic products for your hair and massages... it's obvious that she truly cares about her customers. Another plus is that she's a very intuitive hairstylist, so you'll definitely leave feeling happy and satisfied with your new look.

Rachel never disappoints! I love coming to get my hair done because she makes it an enjoyable experience. It's only 9:30 am and I have already received so many comments on how much my coworkers love my new ombre! They all commented on how beautiful and rich the color is. I recommend going to Rachel for any hair needs because she goes out of her way to take that extra step to really make you feel pretty! No other hairdresser will get my business. Thank you again Rachel!
Kariann A.
Rachel is my go to girl for everything hair! You can walk into her cozy loft space and have no idea what you want to do with your hair, just that you want something different. Rachel always knows what I want even when I have don't and I always leave feeling like a million bucks!

My daughter & I had our 1st salon experience together with Rachel & it was one of the best salon experiences ever!! She makes you feel so at home and her styling area is the most cozy & adorable I have seen! The colors she uses are gorgeous, our hair feels & looks so much healthier, & the organic products smell amazing! We both have gotten so many compliments on our hair, both the color & style, since we went to her! We came from the East side to see her, will continue to do so & would recommend Rachel to anyone!! - Shawnette

I had a special event coming up & had never been to Salon Lofts before. I found Rachel online & she squeezed me in for a full color & cut. The color came out better than I had expected & Rachel was SO nice!! Her loft is so cute, relaxing & she gave me a hand massage and deep conditioning treatment too. She made sure she knew exactly what I wanted & I really can't say enough good things about my appointment. She even gave me a hug when I left. All of the reviews on here are exactly true. Excellent services, excellent personal attention to you as a customer. Excellent Organic products too. Highly recommend! Laura W., Cleveland

I was referred to Rachel on Groupon and was a tad hesitant to test out a new hairstylist, mainly due to the some of the disappointment i have heard from a friend with a Groupon experience. I tried it out anyway. When i arrived, the atmoshpere was welcoming and the staff was friendly when guiding me to Rachel. After a short wait, Rachel and her bright personality welcomed me into her loft and was genuine and wanted to get to know me and listened to everything i was describing that i wanted done to my hair. She was kind, sincere and carried on an honest conversation with me. It felt like i was talking to another friend of mine. The service i received was more than i expected and i was beyond ecstatic with the results i received. My hair looked fantastic after she worked her majic. She was so knowledgeable in everything she was describing with the organic products she was using. As i kindly reminded her already, she has made a new friend and client and i cannot wait to return for another visit! You rock :) -Viorica M.

It has always been hard for me to trust someone new with my hair. But with Rachel she makes me feel so warm and welcome in her loft!! And the way she made my hair look so natural and bright was unbelievable. The products all smell amazing and I always get nothing but compliments after leaving my appointment! :) I look forward to my hair appointments every time. THANKS RACHEL, YOU'RE AMAZING!! -Melinda E.

Rachel is a true artist. Her attention to detail, technique and creativity is amazing! She also made me feel very comfortable with her friendly, welcoming personality. I was impressed with my haircut/style and received many compliments. I would recommend her services to everyone, 5 stars... Can't wait for my next appointment!
Aleksandr P.
I found Rachel quite by accident.... My stylist of several years retired, and it is soooo hard to find a new stylist who understands what you need....I WAS SO DESPERATE TO HAVE A GOOD HAIRCUT!!! I literally walked into salon lofts and Rachel was in between clients....she graciously fit me into her schedule, and gave me a GREAT, precise cut... I have short hair, and there was no awkward few days of growing in before I could work with it... I LOVE MY CUT... And I feel confident that my next cut will be just as wonderful!!! Thank you, Rachel!!!
Alayna F.
I have been a client of Rachels for years and only trust my hair in her hands. She always makes me feel like a million dollars and has a true undeniable talent for hair. Every one needs to experience her magical hands and her creative eye for hair. Rachel Rocks!
Sirna T.
Having only done buzz cuts for a while I was extremely pleased with my haircut. I told Rachel to "do whatever looks nice" and I got many compliments on my haircut. I don't think I will be doing my own buzz cuts any more. Well worth the price for any type of haircut! No one id rather go to now!!!
Andrew T.
I have never loved my hair so much in my life! I am extremely picky when it comes to getting my hair done and Rachel went above and beyond my expectations! She answered all the questions I had about the products and made me feel like a million bucks! If you are wondering who to book with next Rachel is a great choice!
Savannah P.

Rachel is fabulous! I have been with her since I moved here several years ago and she has never done anything but the best. Going to see her is like catching up with a best friend and you come out looking and feeling amazing! If you haven't been to Rachel yet, you and your hair are missing out on something great! Get up and get in to see Rachel, you will never want to see another stylist again!!!!! - Joshua P.

I always feel like I am going to visit a good friend when I get a haircut from Rachel! I completely trust her with my hair, and she always does a wonderful job! You can tell from the moment that you meet her that she is passionate about her work and wants you to look and feel your best. I absolutely love that she uses all organic products.

Rachel made my hair look fantastic again after a previous hair stylists' bad work. I've never looked back and I've never better.
Victoria D.
Rachel has a true passion and dedication to make everyone feel wonderful in there own skin by the wonderful work she does. I can only say wonderful things about my experiences with Rachel. I know I feel fabulous and beautiful after everytime I see her. :)
Brianna C.
Rachel is incredible! I had had a horrible hair cut where my bangs were so short they were sticking out straight, a chunk was chopped off a side, and one side was shorter than the other (it was a nightmare). I had been searching for a great stylist, but was having no luck. Others that I went to see didn't really help, and I never left their chair feeling pretty or liking how I looked. I was starting to lose hope and getting frustrated. Then, I found Rachel and she saved me! My bangs have grown out and look SO much better, my hair is healthy and smooth, and every time I leave I know my hair looks amazing! She knows what she's doing, is a wonderful person, and makes you look great! Thanks again Rachel! xx, Alex S.

I always have a great time with Rachel; she's such a lovely lovely person. She has such a sweet, kind and professional way with all of her clients. Rachel always does a wonderful job, whether it's a cut , color or other treatment. I always leave an appointment with her feeling beautiful & ready to take on the world.
Heather P.
Rachel is one of the best stylists I have been to. She always knows exactly what I want and executes it perfectly. I am very impressed with Salon Lofts and am very happy Rachel has moved there. My hair feels more healthy and the color (red) is just amazing. If you are looking for the best color and most flattering haircut, Rachel is the stylist to go to!
Anne K.
I have been going to Rachel for over a year now, our paths crossed when I used to trust anyone to style my brows! Not anymore, I can only trust Rachel with the job! She does great! She is so precise and always makes sure I leave happy. I have followed Rachel anywhere she goes because she takes the time to perfect my brows every time!! Everyone always compliments my brows and they wanna know who does such an amazing job, well, it's RACHEL! -Taylor
Taylor M.
Rachel is awesome! My wife goes to her for her hair and since I hadn't found a good stylist since we moved I thought I would make an appointment. My hair has never looked better and the haircut itself was really a relaxing experience. She does gentlemen's cuts just as well as she does women's hair! Thank you Rachel!
Christian S.
Happy to have found Rachel, who was recommended by my previous stylist who was moving out of state. Rachel is kind, careful and a great stylist. I love the fact that she uses all organic products. We should be just as mindful about our styling products as we are about what we eat. I definitely recommend Rachel!
Dawn P.
I've been having Rachel work with my hair for the past few years. I love the way she styles the cut. So much better than I've had for years! The new color line she is no using is fantastic. You don't feel it at all on your scalp. It's been a week and I've been in the Southern California sun and the color is holding up really well! She has a knack for formulating the color so it blends in and doesn't look like a toupee after 2 weeks (I am totally Grey).

I have been going to Rachel for about 2 years now. I can honestly say that my life changed when she started cutting my hair. She knew exactly what I was looking for as far as style and length, and as a guy this is not always easy for us to communicate. I love it, women love it, its a perfect storm and I owe it to her.
Steven M.
Rachel has to be by far one of the best at listening to what you want! Not just doing what she wants to do! My cut and color was GREAT but her personality and passionate spirit knocked it out of the park. Thank you girl! See you soon!
Jessica M.
Rachel is absolutely the best stylist I've ever been too. She makes me feel like a million bucks every time! She is so incredibly talented and passionate! Thanks again Rach, I'll definitely be back soon :) -Meg D

Rachel has always given me a fabulous cut and the exact color I am looking for. Not only is she a great stylist, she makes me feel comfortable and at home! She goes out of her way to make sure I truly love my hair and she would do whatever possible to accommodate and make sure of this! I love going to see her-we always have great conversation too:) -Janet S.

Could not have asked for a better stylist to do my hair than Rachel. After have been to other stylists and hated it Rachel cured my hair and now it looks spectacular. Thank you for making me feel and look beautiful. -TINA

Rachel's Salon Loft is awesome! The decor is very relaxing and there's even a water fountain that adds the soothing sound of trickling water. Of course lets not forget the fact that Rachel gives the best hair cut every time. Add to this the healthy organic products that she uses and you will have the best hair experience with Rachel at her Salon Loft. Frank

Rachel is awesome. I had high lights and low lights put in my hair by Rachel and it looks so natural. I get nothing but compliments. I love it! Many other salons have always made my hair turn orangey or two bleached out. Not Rachel! She nailed it. It looks great! I love it! The best part is she uses all organic products. Even the haircolor has no ammonia in it. How great is that! I highly recommend Rachel. She's so sweet and awesome and her place is very comfortable and relaxing. If you're looking for a new stylist, no need to look any further, you found her:)
Tina M.
Rachel is awesome! Her men's haircuts are exact, precise, and very professional. I love her Classic 76 clippers! I have been getting my haircuts with Rachel for the past 2 years and every cut is perfect. I would highly recommend Rachel as your next and last hair stylist! :)
