Melinda Beck-Galloway, HPT

Melinda Galloway is a board-certified practitioner of trichology and cosmetology. She has been providing aesthetic and wellness services throughout the Greater San Diego, CA area since 1996. Her passion for treating hair loss disorders evolved from her struggle with trichotillomania, an anxiety disorder causing hair pulling and hair loss.

"Countless times, clients told me they felt embarrassed, alone, and unsure who to turn to for help," Melinda said. "I wanted to bridge that gap between medical and cosmetic in a partnership that will equate health and beauty for all those in need."

After going through a MOHS surgery on my scalp last year that required a scalp repair, I was left with a hefty scar just behind my hairline. Needless to say, I have no hair growth at my scar site. Melinda completed a very thorough consultation with me, going over all my options for camouflaging my bald spot. I haven’t decided what to do quite yet, but I will definitely be going back to her. She has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to hair aesthetics. I highly recommend her.

Melinda has comprehensive knowledge re hair issues of every stripe. She excels in providing a compassionate consultative experience and a flawless, expedient, execution of results. Results that included perfect color matching and lasting effects.  I was nearly defeated by my personal fight with hair anxiety and unsuccessful attempts to find peace with my hair through color, cuts, extensions, etc.... and I was very tired of spending literally HOURS in a chair only to be unsatisfied and therefore unhappy to part hard earned dollars for an outcome that would not last. When I was referred to Melinda by a successful salon owner who stated she learned "everything she knows" from Melinda, I saw a beam of hope and made a call. Melinda is a commensurate professional who always answers my questions and sets me at ease. Her studio affords maximum privacy and is calming. She even has an emotional support poodle in studio on select days.  After literally years of generalized unhappiness with my hair I have found a place of stability and support with excellent products and efficient expertise. I would recommend speaking to Melinda whatever your issue is with your hair. She can size up the situation quickly, evaluate whether she can help you and when she can, she does so graciously, professionally and with swift techniques that do not compromise quality results. Her conscientious work ethic and warm personality are worth the drive to Del Mar and worth every dollar.

I am in love with this place. A woman salon with your own private little room. They only use the best products. I suffer from "Alopecia areata" and my hair has been look and feel better. Much healthier. Lea does a great job with the highlights. I will totally recommend this salon.

If you are experiencing thinning hair for whatever reason, go see Melinda at Advanced Hair Aesthetics right away! I recently re-located from out of town and was lucky enough to find Melinda when searching the Internet. I've tried various treatments over the years and nothing has ever quite worked just right. After having my first appointment back in September, I knew I found the perfect spot for my thinning hair needs. Most recently, I decided to try long extensions using the IBE method, which Melinda is amazing at, and OMG when I saw a photo of the back of my head I didn't even realize it was me. Thick, luxurious and glamorous hair- which I have never had!! and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Also, Melinda has recommended several new hair products, including an alternate for X-Fusion, which I have used for years and swore I would never leave the house without. The salon is very clean (following COVID-19 protocols), private and the staff is always super friendly & knowledgeable. I've always been really self conscious about going to large, busy hair salons and this is why Advanced Hair Aesthetics is perfect. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
