MAFS' Tahnee spills on 'last-minute' transformation for the Logies

EXCLUSIVE: Tahnee Cook gets ready to attend the 2023 Logie Awards with Yahoo Lifestyle.

Married At First Sight’s Tahnee Cook surprised fans on social media last week when she underwent a major transformation just a few days before attending the TV WEEK Logie Awards.

The reality TV star, who was one of the few season 10 participants to score an invite to TV’s night of nights, dyed her signature blonde hair pink for the event on Sunday.

Before she walked the red carpet, Yahoo Lifestyle caught up with Tahnee at The Star Sydney where she opened up about her new Barbie-inspired look.

“I did the pink super last minute,” she shared. “I’m wearing pink and I was like, ‘Is it too much pink? I don't know’.

“And then I was with my hairdresser Jess and we were like, ‘Do we do it?’. Mind you, she is currently with pink hair. She's like, ‘I'm not the best person to ask’. And I was like, 'Yeah, let's just do like a really light pink’.”


Tahnee added that although this is her first major hair transformation post-MAFS, it certainly isn’t the first time she’s dyed her hair a bright colour.

“I can't even tell you how many times I’ve dyed my hair pink,” she said. “I've had pink, I've had peach, yellow, purple.

“I haven’t had blue. I feel like blues wash out not very nice so I avoid blues and greens. But yeah, purple and pink are just so so good.”

Tahnee's biggest regret on MAFS

While the majority of Tahnee’s MAFS experience was positive and she walked away from the show finding love with her partner Ollie Skelton, there is one thing she wishes she did differently.

“The one thing I would change about my experience on MAFS would be my wedding hair,” she revealed. “It just wouldn't be how I would usually do my hair.

“I think it was set too long so I had too much hairspray, and my head grabs really well to product so it just stays and it was like Shirley Temple curls at one point. Because you'll see in one scene it's like a different curl and then we straightened the bottom bits.

“So it was fine, like in some angles it looks cute, [but] in some it doesn't look that amazing. And you know what? The only hate I received on MAFS was how bad my wedding hair and my flowers were. That's the only time I think I received hate messages, which was honestly so nothing.”


Speaking about life-post MAFS, Tahnee said she is excited to be working on her new podcast Chuffed - which comes shortly after her partner Ollie Skelton released his own podcast TOSSER - while also continuing to work in PR.

“I think there's a misconception of people being like, ‘Oh, you're gonna go on MAFS, you’re going to get a lot of followers, it's going to be amazing’, but you have to work hard,” she detailed.

“Ollie and I work really, really hard with the brand work we do, with our podcasts, with our full-time jobs that we still have. We’re quite hardworking people and I think misconceptions would be people coming on to a show being like, ‘It's going to be amazing for me, I’m going to take off and never have to work a day in my life again’, and that's just not really true.”
