North Korean Dear Leader/monster Kim Jong-Un is now requiring every man in the country to copy his exact haircut. The rule was reportedly introduced in Pyongyang two weeks ago. (Update: The original Radio Free Asia report on this policy was probably based on an uncorroborated rumor, the AP reports. Sources in Pyongyang say they haven't noticed any changes in hairstyle in the capital.)
A few weeks ago, Beyoncé's hair got hilariously stuck in a fan while she was attempting to move thousands to tears via an emotional performance of "Halo." Now, perhaps out of a mistaken belief that fans run on Beyoncé hair instead of electricity, Beyoncé has chopped off all her long hair, in an ambitious tactical maneuver designed to starve the world's fans.
Miley Cyrus, the excitable youth with the speaking voice of a trucker and the singing voice of an angel who died while working as a trucker, has just debuted a half-shaved, half-shag platinum bob monstrosity, that looks like Robyn Fenty's haircut had sex with Robyn "Dancing On My Own"'s haircut in a peroxide Jacuzzi while, across town, some drunk hobo gave Miley Cyrus a very bizarre haircut.
It's the end of an (extremely short-lived) era: 11-year-old pop star and celebrity spawn Willow Smith has cut off all of her hair. Months from now, we will watch the "Whip My Hair" video, cry a single tear, and think to ourselves, "When did everything change? WHY DOES EVERYTHING ALWAYS HAVE TO CHANGE?" [Twitter]
Chickens-rights-championing nose-singer Morrissey was spotted today in Dallas getting his locks trimmed and sculpted into his trademark rockabilly 'do. (Morrissey was proudly touting allegiance to the Hitler Youth before anyone.)

Tom Offer-Westort used to be a guy with a big shaggy beard and shoulder-length hair. Now, he's... not. Luckily for the internet, his friend, filmmaker Peter Simon, made sure he did the big shave "in style," and created this nice little video—kind of a Vimeo Peanut-Butter Solution—of the event. Enjoy it, before Norelco turns it into an ad. [via Reddit]
The Iranian government, which last year banned the mullet, calling it a "decadent western [hair]cut," is reportedly deploying some 70,000 literal fashion police to enforce the newest style Dos and Don'ts of the "moral security plan." For women, this means no more loose-fitting headscarves, tight jackets or exposed leg skin; for men, no necklaces and no shorts. (Also, no "glamorous hairstyles.") Last year, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad voiced his disapproval of the recent crackdown; earlier this year, the Iranian parliament attempted to ban dog ownership. [The Guardian; image via AP]
Regular haircuts not good enough for your toddler? Does your unemployed, penniless, pooping child refuse to enter any salon that does not feature "trendy designer haircuts, hair styling (think spray-on hair color and hair tinsel) and kiddo-friendly beauty services, including funky nail design and glitter tattoos"?
Ever wanted to shave your head but didn't have the time nor the free hands?
