Several news outlets are reporting that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's government has issued a curious fashion guideline.

According to the reports, male university students are required to get their hair cut in the same style as Kim Jong-un.

A BBC report says the North Korean government has issued restrictions in the past on the types of hair styles that its citizens could get. It even references a campaign against long hair from 2005, which advised men to get their hair cut every two weeks. That campaign was called, "Let us trim our hair in accordance with Socialist lifestyle."
