Kelli Langford has always been something of an artist; she just traded in the paintbrushes and pigments of her youth for the hairbrushes and hair dyes of a stylist. Working at New Image Salon, she mows her way through as much as eight inches of hair a day, but that's not where she feels her artistry comes into play. She finds her creative peak in styling and coloring clients' hair—a talent that has resulted in vibrant red tones and trendy ombre looks. But whatever the service, some things are always a given: salon-quality products and a strict policy against using cacti for hairbrushes. "I always test my products and get familiar with them before ever using them on a client," Kelli says.
