According to report, North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un has banned mullet hairstyles and skinny jeans in the country.
The decision was made over concern that they epitomise Western cultures that might badly influence young people in the country and affect his regime.
While reporting the development, North Korean newspaper Rodong Sinmun – which is owned by the ruling Worker’s Party – wrote: “History teaches us a crucial lesson that a country can become vulnerable and eventually collapse like a damp wall regardless of its economic and defence power if we do not hold on to our own lifestyle.”
“We must be wary of even the slightest sign of the capitalistic lifestyle and fight to get rid of them.”
Those who repeatedly violate the strict laws on fashion which include a ban on colourfully dyed or spiked up hair and piercings will be transferred to labour camps under laws put in place by Kim Jong-un.
As things stand, North Koreans can only choose from 15 approved hairstyles under the country’s laws.
