Styled By Esther is owned and operated by Melbourne's own Singing Drag Queen and Miss Gay Australia International 2018 Esther Rix, along side with her husband Russell aka BunGirl!
Through her alter ego Kristian, Esther was born from a love of playing dress up and practicing make up before studying a Diploma of Specialist Makeup at Melbourne Polytechnic in 2015, where her passion and talent for makeup and wig styling truly blossomed and became a fully qualified makeup artist, wig and hair stylist.
What started four years ago as a small side hobby styling wigs for friends, has flourished into the successful career and business she is proud of today. Esther specialises in vintage sets, finger waves and voluminous curls, but can recreate any style and loves a challenge!
Esther also loves the art of transformation through makeup to turn herself as well as her clients into the perfect character, creature, zombie or glamazon of their dreams, working out of the Styled By Esther Home studio in Elwood Victoria or on location she is a professional and highly regarded makeup artist! check out the #BeatbyEsther page for more information!
