According to BBC
Men in North Korea are now required to get the same haircut as their leader Kim Jong-un, it is reported. The state-sanctioned guidelines were introduced in the capital Pyongyang about two weeks ago, media reports say.

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”.
The state-sanctioned guidelines are now being applied everywhere in North Korea. So men who originally had 10 choices of hairstyles now only have one choice, the “Kim Jong-un look”.
How would you feel if your government tried to tell you how to cut your hair? Or told you what clothes to wear?
