Fun Fact About North Korea #6

North Korea has a list of allowed haircuts.

Did you know that in North Korea, there are only 28 state-approved haircuts.

The North Korean haircut rules are:

  • Men’s hair should be kept between 1-5 cm in length, with recommended haircuts every 15 days.
  • Women are allowed to choose from one of 14 slightly longer styles.
  • Spiked hairstyles are exclusively banned because the government thinks it’s rebellious.

Kim Jong Un decided not to include his own hairstyle in the restrictions however, because he wanted to keep it unique.
