About Esther Rix


Through her alter ego Kristian, Esther was born from a a love of playing dress up and makeup before to making it her full time career and achieving a Diploma of Specialist Makeup at Melbourne Polytechnic, where her passion and talent for wig styling truly blossomed.


Esther burst on to the drag scene early 2014, competing against fellow queens who have since become some of Melbourne's finest. And the rest is history! Since her debut, Esther has made quite a name for herself in the Drag world, where not only does she beat a good face and style a mean wig, she's been classically trained in voice at WAAPA. And when performing, Esther sings instead of lipsyncing, which gives her a point of difference from her piers. What started off four years ago as a small hobby business styling wigs for friends, has blossomed and flourished in to the successful career she is proud of today.


Esther is a fully qualified makeup artist, wig and hair stylist. Esther specialises in vintage sets, finger waves and voluminous curls, but can recreate any style and loves a challenge! You may have seen Styled by Esther creations on some of our famous Melbourne Drag queens such as Polly Filla and Karen from Finance, Burlesque performers like Maple Rose and Ruby Slippers, or in a number of theatre productions around Australia.


The pinnacle of Esther's career has been supplying wigs for several huge name queens starring in RuPaul's Drag Race including Laganja Estranja, Pandora Boxx, Latrice Royale, Jujubee, Eureka O’hara and the beautiful Shangela even wore a Styled by Esther wig on the RuPauls Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Finale!
