Concerned about your curly hair because no one else seems to be? PERFECT! Meet Melinda Chadwick. "I would rather help 'curly' clients learn how to make their hair the best that it can be instead of making it something that it is not (like straight)." Specializing in reds and dimensional blondes, Melinda gives an exceptional wealth of knowledge to her clientele.
As any girl simultaneously blessed and cursed with an unruly mane of curls can attest, the importance of a stylist that KNOWS curly hair cannot be overstated. Cut the curls wrong and any number of horrors ensue: hair that ties itself in infinitesimal knots, unmanageable frizz, or treatment recommendations that lead to over processed and damaged hair. Chance and the delightful magic of Nashville led me to Melinda at Elan in Green Hills. I walked in for a wedding up-do last February and was met by Melinda. Her own mane of glossy, burnished red and gold curls struck an immediate chord of hair envy within me. Her hair was the embodiment of everything I strived for: volume with artful curl and zero frizz. Photoshop hair in real life. Calling all curls, you are safe with Melinda. She knows your struggles and can transform your hair. She's a wizard with color and shape. Bonus - she will STYLE your fresh 'do from wet to dry and impart her own curl tricks and tips along the way.

I scheduled with Melinda and she is WONDERFUL. She took real time talking to me about what I wanted for my style, and examining my hair shape. The turnout was incredible! I now have the cutest little curly bob!

Having curly hair isn't easy, so finding a hairstylist that understands how to cut and style it is hard. Melinda was the stylist I've been looking for! She has curly hair herself, and commiserated with me on the various "no-poo" and styling products we've tried in the past. After discussing the issues I have with styling my hair and getting my color just right, she executed a perfect cut and color. I'm really happy with the results. My hair was like night and day after leaving the salon. It looks so much fuller and my curls are not frizzy like before. I highly recommend visiting her!

Thanks to all of you at Elan Green Hills for making my experience fantastic!! The environment is very professional and everyone is extremely friendly. I always feel welcome. Words cannot explain how happy I am with the time I have spent with Melinda Chadwick. Melinda is thorough, thoughtful, and works on my hair as if she is sculpting art. As an African-American woman, finding a great stylist and colorist that understands my natural hair is insanely difficult. But I have found that in Melinda. Melinda, thank you for your patience and truly caring. I adore you!
