NORTH KOREA – North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un is reportedly requiring men in his country to get his same haircut.

According to TIME, until now, residents of North Korea were required to choose their haircuts from a list of state-approved styles.

North Korea’s capital, Pyongyang, was first introduced to the new law a few weeks ago, but now it is rolling out across the country.

However, according to BBC, there are conflicting reports over the haircut mandate.

They reported that recent visitors to the capital did not notice a change in hair styles.

As of now, North Korea women seem to be in the clear.

They can continue to choose between the 18 state-approved hair styles.
