North Korean leader bans skinny jeans and mullet hairstyles in North Korea

Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, is said to have outlawed mullet hairstyles and skinny jeans in the country.Concerns that they represent Western cultures could affect young people in the country and have an effect on his regime led to the decision.'History tells us a critical lesson that a nation will become weak and inevitably crumble like a damp wall regardless of its economic and defense force if we do not hang on to our own lifestyle,' wrote North Korean newspaper Rodong Sinmun, which is owned by the ruling Workers' Party.

'We must be aware of even the tiniest hint of the capitalistic lifestyle and struggle to get rid of them,' it said.Many that consistently disobey Kim Jong-stringent un's fashion rules, which include a ban on colorfully colored or spiked up hair and piercings, will be sent to labor camps.According to reports, North Koreans can only pick from 15 sanctioned hairstyles under the country's rules.
