New York gets an official haircut, Kim Jong-un style
We follow the dictator's fashion lead and decide on New York City's must-have haircut
News broke this morning that North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, now requires that all Korean men have their hair cut to resemble his own wicked-sharp short back and sides (a style that until recently was known in his homeland as the “Chinese Smuggler”). Word is it may be a hoax, but it wouldn't be a far jump from NK’s existing mandate that women may choose one of only 18 styles at the hairdressers; men, one of ten. A recent North Korean political campaign even raged against the scourge of long hair with the inspirational motto “Let us trim our hair in accordance with the Socialist lifestyle.”
So, New Yorkers, in the spirit of crazy despotic haircut laws, let us trim our hair in accordance with the NYC lifestyle. Which iconic New Yorkers’ haircuts should be standard in the city? Jimmy Fallon? Jay Z? You decide.
