Elyse Dehlbom was a fan favorite on the 23rd season of ABC’s The Bachelor. Refinery 29 wrote, “But one contestant [speaking of Elyse] on Colton Underwood’s season stood out simply because of her hair color. Sigh. Redheads are (oddly) rare on the show.”

She grew up outside of Anchorage in Alaska, where she spent her childhood outdoors. She found a warmer climate when she relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona – where she now works as a makeup artist. Elyse also owns GlamourGasp.com which gives one-on-one makeup lessons online.

Podcast notes:

1. What was it like growing up with red hair? Most redheads have the same story, but it seems to shape all of us redheads in unique ways. What was it like growing up as a redhead in Alaska?

2. Ok, we’re on to The Bachelor questions! After the show, you posted on Instagram stories and explained it as being, “one of the most challenging experiences I have gone through.” What did you mean by this? How would you describe your experience as a whole?

3. We also read that you described yourself as being “authentically yourself” while in The Bachelor house. We think a lot of redheads have this quality because our red hair [eventually, for some] causes us to embrace ourselves inside + out. But it must be tough to be yourself – through and through – when you’re in a house full of women fighting for 1 person. How did you do this?

4. Can you bring beauty products to The Bachelor house?! What ‘Redhead Friendly’ favorites did you bring with you?
