These Drag Queen Hairstyles will steal away your heart. Full of personality and creativity, these are some of the most intriguing hairstyles to exist. We understand that many people have questions and assumptions when it comes to the drag community. So, before we dive into the hair-styling, let us have a brief about the drag queens and the drag race.
Drag is an influential and progressive art form that at its very nature challenges the false notion of a rigid gender binary. Like any other art form it is malleable to suit the needs of the performer and audience. The same performer one night that serves a more adult crowd can easily switch gears and be more than capable of reading stories to children. Drag queens are mostly male performers, who are usually a part of LGBTQ+ community. They dress up and style themselves to imitate exaggerated gender roles in order to entertain.
The drag style is characterized by exaggerated hairstyles, mostly wigs, loud and edgy makeup and fancy demeanor. Here are some amazing drag queen hairstyles that are very unique. Some of these are inspired by Ru Pauls drag race but the possibility of experimentation with these hairstyles remains endless.
1. Prominent S Wave Curls
These are some very prominent S curls or S waves. This Champaign pink hair colour is very feminine and looks great with the bright pink makeup.

This wig has a ton of volume. I’m assuming that a lot of backcombing goes into this hairstyle which gives it the mass and puffiness. Adding to all these things, the curls look great.
