About Kelly Lee

Kelly Lee Culbreth
Stylist & Hair Color Specialist
Kelly was born and raised in Centralia, IL.  She moved to Murfreesboro, TN to attend Middle Tennessee State University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Mass Communications in 1997. After living in New York for 6 years while working as a Regional Manager for Scruples Professional Salon Products, Kelly decided to move back to Murfreesboro, TN to settle down and start a business of her own.  So with the knowledge acquired after spending years of studying and teaching advanced hair color techniques throughout New York and the Northeast, Kelly couldn’t wait to build up her own clientele and do what she loves.  
She can be found doing hair at
Kelly Lee Salon & Gallery on Broad Street.  

 Kelly knows…. Hair Has Power!!!

Having seen the positive effect a great color and cut can have on an individual, Kelly has always said, “I work in the Self-Esteem Industry!” Making EVERY client look and feel good is what makes Kelly LOVE her profession.  She knows every client is entrusting her with the most important accessory they wear everyday… THEIR HAIR!  And she has made it her goal to have a positive impact on every client that sits in her chair!

Kelly has been a part of the Beauty Industry for over 15 years and spent 6 years living and working in New York for Scruples Professional Salon Products.   She has worked at major hair shows in markets such as New York City, Boston, Toronto, Orlando, Baltimore & Atlanta.  And she has studied under some of the best hairdressers in the country.  Including, but not limited to:


  • William Whatley – Las Vegas, NV:  You may have seen him as lead host of FOX’s Ambush Makeover, the hit television series or on other TV shows where he appeared such as Oprah, ON-AIR with Ryan Seacrest,The Other Half and TLC’s Wedding and Makeover Stories. He’s also been on the Style Network and done several beauty segments for FOX Denver, FOX Minneapolis, FOX LA, FOX Atlanta and FOX New York. For five years, he had a weekly beauty segment for FOX Las Vegas.


  • Terence Renk – Los Angeles, CA:  2011 “Emmy” Daytime television award winner. Terrence has been the credited stylist of many celebrities, Including: Martha Stewart, Karen Elson, Rachael Hunter, and the cast of “All My Children” just to name a few. He has worked on several television commercials for Dove, Reebok and a variety of Television shows and promotions for FX, Starz Network includ-ing; Fully Baked, The League, Spartacus, Friday Night lights and more. His work has been published in Italian Vogue, Allure, Women’s Day, American Salon, Modern Salon, and several others


Standard colors from a tube and boring color placement is not a part of Kelly’s routine.  She prides herself in customizing color formulas specific to each client and designing color placement that is the most flattering and complimentary to your overall look.  And, have you had a bad color experience? Corrective Color situations are her specialty and she loves the challenge!

One of Kelly’s distinguishing features is doing Highlights without the use of any Bleach!  And, her approach to hairdressing is a little different than most stylists.  She has attended numerous trainings at the Scruples Facility in Lakeville, MN and is a graduate of their Global Design Academy where she learned the Self-Tour approach to hairdressing.  By doing a complete consultation and self-tour, she uses the client’s body shape, head and face shape, growth patterns, skin tones, eye color, personality and life-style to determine the best cut, color and texture for each client. 

After a visit with Kelly, you will not only leave with a “Plan” for your overall look, but she will also educate you on the best ways to style your hair.  She will prescribe the best hair care regimen for your hair type and style, and train you on how to use each product for maximum effect. 

Any stylist can give you the cut or color you THINK you may want…  but, Kelly will help you see the vision for the cut and color you SHOULD want!

    In her spare time, Kelly likes to sing, play piano, write songs, record music and perform. It has been her dream to use her musical talent for something bigger then herself.  So in 2013, she founded her non-profit, The Sogno Project, as a way to raise money for her community while bringing awareness to Music & the Arts.   (“Sogno” is the Italian word for dream…)
