The idea of wearing blue hair is one of the most iconic symbols of Australia, and the state has always had its own take on the idea.
The colour is one that’s associated with Australian culture and identity, from the blue state flag to the way in which blue is a trademark of the national flag.
So it’s not surprising that there’s a vibrant community of blue-haired Australians around the country.
But it’s a little surprising that the concept of blue hair doesn’t quite translate to the public.
Blue hair is considered “too masculine”, “too feminine”, “not Australian”, or “not natural”.
It’s not a cultural term and doesn’t have a definite meaning, but it is a widely accepted cultural identity.
And that’s because it’s part of what’s so special about the blue colour in Australia.
For some, it’s simply a part of the colour palette.
“Blue hair has been in Australian culture for quite some time, and it’s definitely something that’s quite universal,” says Jessica Bowers, a senior lecturer at the Australian National University’s Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.
She says that it’s “a colour that’s very, very popular with many Australians”.
Bowers is one who’s familiar with the colour, having studied it as a student in New Zealand, where she was a member of a student delegation at a national conference in 2003.
I remember being very, quite excited when I got to New Zealand because it was the first time I’d been to Australia.
And I remember being incredibly proud to wear my blue hair.
At the time, it was a very unique experience, because we had no way of knowing if it was real or not.
It was actually the first international conference that we went to and we got to meet people from all over the world, and they were wearing their hair in a way that I hadn’t experienced before.
There were also a lot of people who were wearing the hair in this very strange way.
And people were really curious about what was happening.
When you see people in Australia wearing it, it is definitely a symbol of identity and of a place.
And so I think that it was really cool that the people in New York and New Zealand were also wearing blue and the people at the conference were wearing blue.
We are all really connected to this colour, and to this symbol.
And when we see it, we can be really proud of it.
The cultural significance of the blue hair also extends to the Australian public, too.
Some people who wear blue are perceived as being more confident and more confident women.
And there’s even a myth that if you wear blue, you will attract attention from men.
People think of it as this exotic, mysterious colour, but there’s actually a lot that goes into it.
And blue hair can be a great symbol of empowerment.
Bower agrees that it does have some cultural value.
“[It] is associated with a certain sort of self-esteem, a certain kind of confidence,” she says.
And there are certain aspects of it that are very beautiful, particularly the fact that it has the power to be a powerful symbol of something that is really powerful.
