While it is true that women must appear in public with at least part of their heads covered, they seem to compensate for this by wearing very striking accessories, bright lipstick and nail polish. Of course, this only applies to some women. But at least there are some fashion choices. Visit some of the student institutions in Tehran, for example, and you will see some extremely attractive women doing all they can to preserve their individuality.
On the other hand, if you go to some cities such as Yazd, which is known to be religiously conservative, be prepared to see a lot of women in black, with very little hair showing.
All Iranian girls are required to start covering their heads at age 9, but some girls from religious families start even earlier.
