Julie Bishop, 67, unveils a very bold new hairstyle and fights back against criticism as Australians are less than impressed

Julie Bishop has revealed a dramatic hair change, but some of her fans aren't impressed with the new look.

On Wednesday, the 67-year-old former foreign minister proudly showed off her choppy new hairstyle on Instagram as she dined with two friends at Chiswick restaurant in Sydney's Woollahra.

Cut into voluminous eighties-style bangs, Julie's new platinum locks completely cover her forehead and look worlds different than her usual polished and shiny fringe bob.

Several of Julie's fans weren't a fan of the noticeably different 'do.

“I'm not so sure about the hairstyle Julie,” one wrote.

Julie simply responded with a shrugging emoji and didn't seem bothered by the critical remark.

Another Instagram user went further, writing: “Dear Julie Bishop, you always look stunning but those praising your new hairstyle are doing you a disservice… I apologize in advance BUT the disheveled look is… oh well , disheveled!” You paid a hairdresser? Hmmm.'

A quick-witted Julie clapped back at the remark, writing: “I love change so I'll change it again sometime!” followed by a laughing emoji and clapping hands.

Despite the criticism, other fans praised her new look and left positive comments on her hair and her chic white shirt dress from Mara Collective.

“Woosssh love the new hairstyle!” wrote one, while another said: “I love the new messy book hairstyle.”
