North Korean despot Kim Jong Il is known for his bouffant, but he hates long hair on other men. He ordered followers in 2005 to keep their hair shorter than 5 centimeters (2 inches). The dictum came in a television campaign, titled "Let's Trim Our Hair According to the Socialist Lifestyle," that depicted long hair as a stinky indulgence that left the brain starved for oxygen.
