You'll never see a north korean man with long hair. The government had
started few years ago a propaganda campaign to ask the people to have
"flat-top crew cut," "middle hairstyle," "low
hairstyle," or "high hairstyle" - variations from one
to five centimetres in length.
The programme allowed men aged over 50 seven centimetres of upper hair to cover balding.
Even if the times are hard for north koreans, people are really taking care of their aspect and are shocked by the way we, tourists, are dressed sometimes.
