North Korea Bans The Right To Personal Hairstyling

KimJU haircut

Word on the street is that it sucks to live in North Korea nowadays. The country’s crazed dictator, Kim-Jong Un, has virtually brainwashed all of North Korea’s citizens and committed atrocities only comparable to those of Hitler. But earlier yesterday morning, life just got that much worse. Kim-Jung Un announced that he was stripping citizens of yet another fundamental right: the right to personal hairstyling.

According to “Time Magazine,” all the men now have to sport the same exact hairstyle as Kim-Jung Un. The women, on the other hand, are “allowed to choose” from a list of 18 state-approved hairdos.

This got me thinking, if I happened to be an evil tyrant, hell-bent on corrupting and controlling every aspect of life in an entire country, what hairstyles would I allow/not allow the population to wear? Here are my winners and losers:


1. Side-Swept Bangs
2. Big Pony
3. The Bump/Teased
4. Big, Loose Curls
5. Waves
6. Stick Straight
7. The Low, Loose Bun
8. The Effortless Top Knot


1. The Pixie
2. The Bob
3. The Choppy “Blunt” Cut
4. Half Shaved, Half Full
5. Boho Dreadlocks/Cornrows
6. Pig Tails
7. The Faux Pompadour
8. The Kate Gosselin

So since I only have eight that are approved, I guess you have more freedom in North Korea in this department?
