A list of allegedly state-mandated styles was snapped by a journalist inside the heavily controlled state.
But despite many styles sporting shaved side styles, the list does not contain the style made famous by nuclear weapon wielding warmonger Kim Jon-un.
The Finnish reporter, who is believed to have snapped the approved list while visiting the Pyongyang for the ‘Day of the Sun’ celebrations, claimed the barber gave him the “best shave and head massage I have ever had”.
He added: “North Korean men can choose between 15 approved haircut styles.

“I had the most popular one – and it’s not like Kim Jong Un.”
It follows reports from the hermit kingdom two years ago claiming the tyrannical dictator was forcing his subjects to imitate his shaved side style.
He added: “Equality in North Korea: Both sexes have 15 approved haircut models.
“You can forget about dyeing your hair though.”
