Also in the news…North Korean Haircuts

Also in the news today are stories regarding new haircutting laws in North Korea – Sarah has all of the details…

North Koreans are now required to get haircuts like Kim Jong-un under new state-sanctioned guidelines. They were brought into Pyongyang a few weeks ago but are now being spread across the whole of North Korea. All men have to have the teddy-boy haircut. Haircuts have always been controlled by the state; you used to have to choose between 28 different styles. They even had a hit TV show with ‘Let’s Trim Our Hair in Accordance to the Socialist Lifestyle’. Some people, unsurprisingly, were not too happy with this idea, stating that it is ‘very particular’ and doesn’t go with everyone’s face shape.
