"I used to do my mum’s hair when I was a young boy. I noticed that when mum would stand up and look in the mirror, her shoulders would go back and she would stand taller, and for a minute forget who she was – she seemed like somebody different," he told Gay Times UK. "That’s when I realized how powerful we are as we don’t just make people look good, we make them feel good – and that’s a real special thing."

From there his first job in Hollywood was on the set of a Jennifer Lopez music video, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Chris Appleton is also the proud dad of two kids.

Appleton has been very open about coming out later in life, in 2009, and is the proud father of two kids — Kitty-Blu and Billy Appleton — with his former partner Katie Katon.

"I guess it was kind of just when I realized. I have two kids and I thought that was the direction I was going in. Realizing then was just my time. Some people know straight away, I didn’t and it took me a minute to understand that and accept that and then come out," he told the outlet. "It was also really important to me that the kids were comfortable before I expressed that, and that they understood and were in a good place. It was just time. Everybody has their story and mine was later on."

Now, along with following along on Instagram to see Appleton's work, you can watch him on The Kardashians reality series on Hulu, as well as a beauty expert on The Drew Barrymore Show.

In 2021, Appleton also bought a nearly $4 million Los Angeles home, which was previously owned by interior designer Nate Berkus. So, it's safe to say Appleton is doing really well for himself.
