"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."

"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."

"Finding Melinda was honestly life changing for me, this is coming from someone who has trictotilliamania and has tried countless hair extensions! My hair loss was so bad that I didn’t have enough hair for extensions. So grateful I found a solution that I can have hair and grow my own back at the same time!"

"I am currently on medications that have resulted in hair loss and it started to affect my self-esteem. I had gotten hair extensions done at a salon and was not happy with the way they seemed to pull at my already fragile hair. I did some research and found Melinda at Advanced Hair Aesthetics. I went in for a consultation and was moved by her vast knowledge. The Revive system was recommended for my situation and it’s amazing. It will not damage your hair, it’s easy to care for, and it has helped me feel more confident. Melinda provides you with all the tools you need to maintain your system and is open to share what she knows from her 20+ years of experience. This is no ordinary salon, Melinda has bridged the gap between the average salon and those needing specialized hair loss treatments. Thank you so much for being concerned, genuine, and passionate about what you do!!"

"Wow... Melinda Galloway is an absolute ANGEL. Please, if you suffer from Trichotillomania, Alopecia, or any other hair loss disease, do yourself a favor and go see Melinda Galloway. I have Trichotillomania and had a bad pulling episode in January that left me partly bald on top. To say I was self conscious is an understatement. Melinda welcomed me right away and made me feel comfortable. Not only did she sympathize with me, but she proceeded to remove her own Crown Extension and tell me she suffers from the same condition. I almost cried just meeting someone else who suffers from the same condition as I. The consultation was amazing. She took so much time to discuss my needs and what I wanted to result to look like. We talked about different options, but because I had a large bald area, I decided to do a CROWN EXTENSION. Fast forward three weeks later, and I have a GORGEOUS custom cut and dyed RED 24' Crown Extension. Not only did she cut and dye my extension, but she also cut and dyed my natural hair. With this Crown Extension, I have a full head of hair for the first time in five years. It looks natural, gorgeous and amazing. Your confidence will soar 1000%. Please do this for yourself, you won't regret it. Thank you Melinda, from the bottom of my heart. You are amazing <3"
