Seoul: In a bizarre ruling, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has passed a new diktat which cautions men to keep their hair length to a maximum of 2cm or face sanctions.

A report published in dailymail, North Korean men have been ordered to get their hair cut in the 'ambitious' manner of their leader Kim Jong-un

Men have been warned they face sanctions if their hair is longer than 2cm and not shaved along the sides, the report added.

However, women, thankfully, have been spared the prospect of appearing in public with Kim's highly-stylised hair cut, but they are advised to copy his wife, Ri Sol-ju's bob.

As per the report, only actors are being spared from complying with the bizarre diktat.

This latest policy announcement has leaked out of the secretive state as North Korean officials have been engaged in talks in the border village of Panmunjom with their southern counterparts.
