Slog it blog It, A Brush With The Law!


Molly The Wally Has A Bath!

The 28 State Permitted hairstyles of North Korea. Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow!



Dictator Kim Jong-un has issued another hair brained order. North Koreas’ leader has told his people they may choose from only 28 State permitted hair styles. Men can pick from 10 variations on the short back and sides but the despots’ buffoon buffon look adopted by the supreme leader is not on the list. Older men in the state can grow their hair to three inches long. All other blokes have been warned to ensure their hair is a maximum length of two inches. Maybe Kim Jong-un might need to pay a visit to a barber? Women have a bit more choice with a dazzling array of 18 styles that all look the same. Married women have been told to keep their hair short while those not yet wed can have longer locks. The North Korean government thinks these styles are most comfortable and able to guard against the corrupting effects of capitalism. This isn’t the first time North Korea has launched an all out assault on flamboyant hair. In 2005 they aired a television series entitled ‘Let us trim our hair in accordance with socialist lifestyle.’ Wow that must have been riveting. Rules are rules so better pay attention we don’t want any of us facing a brush with the law if we visited North Korea. Drats that means no mullets, no mohawks and no shaggy dogs!

  1. We eagerly await the North Korean edict on premitted styles for dogs. By breed of course. And we won't make any jokes about the 'ready for the casserole dish' look being the favourite...
    Cheers! Bertie and Gail.

  7. How about balding men? The permitted hair styles seem to assume all men to have a thick mop of hair. LOL.

  11. I've seen this look before...you may want to be extra careful the next few days. State authorized hairdos. Wonder if hairdressers have to take a special course.

  15. Wow. Dictating hairstyles for people? Wrong..just wrong! Now...I think YOU would look good with ANY hairstyle Molly.

  16. It is a well known fact that Capitalism enters the human body through the top of the head. These hairstyles should be effective in keeping the N Koreans from getting infected.

    hairdresser shakes her head and points to the 'wall o' photos'

  42. HI Molly,

    The phrase I guess from L'Oreal BECAUSE I'M WORTH IT gone out of the window.....God knows what their pop groups must look like...Hair Cut 1000 don't think so.

  43. Law of physics ~ wet dogs weigh more also ~ so don't die wet!
    Guess they made that law so barbers can get a higher regulated pay.
    Thanks for being a friend

  44. We are wondering if the illustrious Dictator will perhaps add multi-color hair and nose rings to the list in honor of Dennis Rodman's visit.

  45. Woww, so many options.....not lol. On the other hand Molly your picture left me leaving here with a smile once again, too cute!

  46. All I can think is that they are trying to boost the economy for the barber and hair salons. Unbelievable. Won't be visiting there. Hubby and I both have long hair. We'd be doomed.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Momz would have some serious trouble there...Her super curly hair wouldn't make "the cut" Maybe she could shave her head? BOL!

  48. Anyone who worries about how other people are wearing their hair doesn't have enough to do!
