Report: Men In North Korea Must Get Same Haircut As Kim Jong Un

According to reports, the government in North Korea announced two weeks ago that men in the country now have to get their hair cut in the same manner as Kim Jong Un.

Jong Un wants every other man in the country to rock the “Dear Leader Kim Jong Un” haircut.

Officially called a “fashion guideline,” the state-ordered hairdo is known by another name besides “Dear Leader.”

“Until the mid-2000, we called it the ‘Chinese smuggler haircut,’” the Korea Times reported.

“Our leader’s haircut is very particular, if you will. It doesn’t always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes. It started from capital Pyongyang and [is] now spreading all across the country.”

State-sanctioned haircuts are nothing new in North Korea, according to the BBC.

Until the Kim Jong Un haircut decree, men were restricted to choosing from 10 different hairstyles; women got to select from 18.
