There was no missing outspoken bride Elizabeth on last night’s episode of Married at First Sight.
From her more is more approach to makeup, to her say-it-as-she-sees-it approach to life, it wasn’t hard to see why producers labelled her ‘Australia’s most confident bride’.
But there’s one aspect of the 27-year-old’s signature look that has a particular reason behind it – and that’s her lengthy hair extensions.
Elizabeth has an autoimmune condition that means she needs to protect her skin from the sun, and her long hair is a part of that, she tells OK! Magazine.
“I love the beach, but if I’m going to go, I know that for two weeks after I’m not going to be so well,” she says.
“I’m basically allergic to the sun. I get burns on my body. I also have a really photosensitive scalp and ears, so I get a rash, which is why I wear hair extensions to act as a hat.”
Her extensions garnered a lot of attention on social media (and not the good kind). But her husband Sam’s personal grooming also didn’t escape the public’s attention.

Ok Sam's beard??#MAFS Why are men growing beards and still manicuring them into perfection by still shaving aswell.
If you have a beard, let it rock, let the beard hair be wild & rustic. Keep it masculine, don't shave! #MAFSAU

Interestingly, Elizabeth only became a blonde relatively recently, and was rocking a much darker hairstyle last year. Take a look at our gallery for more photos.
