In 2004, Kali left her small hometown of Atkinson, Nebraska to join the Army National Guard. During her eight years of service, she worked as a chemical specialist. After being released, she graduated from Xenon International Academy as a valedictorian and participated in the North American Hairstyling Awards. In 2012, she became a color educator for Kevin Murphy and later became a color specialist in 2015.
Kali is a staple of the fashion and beauty industry in Omaha, Nebraska. She is consistently seen on set working on commercial photoshoots featured in Omaha Magazine, Inspired Living, Wedding Essentials, and Omaha Fashion Magazine. She is also a member of the two-time winning team for the Style and Beauty Show presented by Omaha Fashion week each spring, as well as a collaborator with designers to present their lines on the runway each season.
Why Kevin Murphy? At Sirens, her first salon after Xenon, she attended a class from the Associate Director of Education, Tim Abney, and afterwards, she was hooked. Tim became a life long mentor and Kali began to follow in his footsteps. Her dedication to environmental issues and animal rights is reflected in Kevin Murphy's biodegradable packaging, involvement with PETA and ecologically sound wild harvesting practices to use in their line. Quality, environmentally responsible, performance based products that stand the test of time.
