Iran has implemented an Islamic dress code at several universities in the country, banning, among other things, female students from putting on long nails and donning bright clothes and tattoos, Reuters reported on Monday quoting the Iranian Fars news agency.

The universities were given a note informing them of the new dress code but did not say on what basis the code was established.

The code prohibits women from "wearing caps or hats without scarves, tight and short jeans, and body piercing", except earrings, Reuters said quoting Fars.

It also bans male students from dying their hair, plucking eyebrows, wearing tight clothes, shirts with "very short sleeves" and jewelry.
