North Korea released recommended hairstyles for its people

Want a new hair cut for the coming spring? Have a hard time deciding on a new style? North Korean government has you covered. Men and women in North Korea are encouraged to choose from one of the 18 female hairstyles and 10 male hairstyles recommended by their government. [Pictures from Chinanews.com]

You are supposed to easily tell whether a North Korean woman is married or single by simply looking at her hairstyle. But of course, as officially recommended hairstyles, they have much mightier use – to guard against the decadent Western cultures. 

The move reminds many in China of their own “good old days” when everybody was dressed in either blue or green uniforms, holding a little red book in hands. But as many Chinese netizens pointed out, North Korea’s sexy leader Kim Jong-Un wears none of these hairstyles.

    Can’t imagine what those pictures will look like 6 months from now after Dennis Rodman leaves North Korea. The government will recommend multi-colored hair, tattoos, and a nose ring to boot.
