North Korean men, women ordered to copy Kim Jong-un, wife’s hairdo

There is no way North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could stay out of the news for too long. For here comes yet another weird diktat from the despot ordering North Korean men and women to have their hairdo in the same style as the former and his wife.

The latest decree requires men to keep their hair no longer than 0.8 inches and cut their hair in a similar fashion to Kim Jong-un’s eccentric trademark swept-back bouffant with shaved sides aka the “ambitious” style so as to pay homage to him, The Sun reported.

While in the past at least the top of the “ambitious” style could be left longer, now even the top is cut to 2 cm or less. Moreover, young women have also been ordered to copy Kim’s wife Ri Solju’s bob cut hairdo.

This has come as good news for those in hairdressing profession with people making a beeline for the barber shops, although most of them are complying with orders lest they should be persecuted.

Chinese newspaper The Chosun Ibo reports that so as to enforce the crackdown on long hair that University students are walking around with scissors and cutting off the hair of offenders.
