Life after politics certainly seems to be agreeing with Julie Bishop.

The former Foreign Minister showed off her new post-isolation haircut during a road trip with girlfriends along the Margaret River in Western Australia over the weekend, much to the delight of her loyal Instagram followers.

Julie, 63, put her best casual foot forward during the fun getaway, rocking a series of chic but casual outfits as she debuted her longer locks.

The ex-MP has grown out her signature pixie cut into a bob, which is now long enough to be tied up into a ponytail.

Julie wore a fun grey jumper emblazoned with the phrase “diamonds and pearls”, along with skinny jeans and a cool black leather jacket.

She added a bright green puffer jacket for warmth, as she zipped around the West Australian coast in a luxury Audi convertible.

“Day 2 freedom road trip @audiaustralia 😎 Lunch @xanaduwines #thelmaandlouise #diamondsandpearls #covidhaircut #ponytail #margaretriver,” Julie captioned one of her posts.

Following her resignation from politics in April 2019, Julie has taken on a role as chancellor at Australian National University in Canberra and currently sits on the board of the professional services company Palladium.

She has established her own strategic advisory firm and is also working as a headline speaker at various events, including a women’s business retreat at the Intercontinental Fiji Resort and Spa last year, where she was the keynote speaker discussing “How to Lead with Dignity and Grace”.

Julie has previously opened up about how much she is enjoying the freedom that comes from not being involved in politics anymore.

“It’s probably easier to do things differently when you’re outside politics,” she told The Sydney Morning Herald last year.

“You don’t get the constant commentary on how you look and so you can be, perhaps, a little edgier.”

She says she feels “liberated” by her decision.

“I feel very liberated. I love my life, I’m enjoying very much what I’m doing. But that’s always been the case. I loved every moment of politics, virtually every moment of politics,” she said.

“There were some rather trying moments when you felt you were enduring some difficult times, but by far the majority of my time in politics was highly satisfying. Challenging, satisfying, and I enjoyed it.”

Julie is currently dating pharmacist and winemaker David Panton.
