Submission + - North Korea: Men required to get Kim Jong-un haircuts (bbc.com)

An anonymous reader writes: BBC reports, "Men in North Korea are now required to get the same haircut as their leader Kim Jong-un ... The state-sanctioned guidelines were introduced in the capital Pyongyang about two weeks ago ...They are now being rolled out across the country — although some people have expressed reservations ... "Our leader's haircut is very particular, if you will," one source tells Radio Free Asia. ... Meanwhile, a North Korean now living in China says the look is actually unpopular at home because people think it resembles Chinese smugglers. ... It seems that haircuts have been state-approved in North Korea for some time — until now people were only allowed to choose from 18 styles for women and 10 for men. Earlier, North Korea's state TV launched a campaign against long hair, called "Let us trim our hair in accordance with the Socialist lifestyle"."
