Hairdresser gets blowdryer treatment from North Koreans

A hair salon used a poster of Kim Jong-un’s short-back-and sides hairstyle to promote a special offer, after hearing rumours that the university students are required to have the same haircut as the North Korean Leader. But the Korean Embassy did not see the funny side and demanded the poster be taken down.

The bemused salon owner Mo Nabbach responded by telling his unhappy customers: “This is England, not North Korea.”
