North Korea Bans Tight Jeans, Dyed Hair, Other Trends With ‘Capitalist Flair’: Report
Kim Jong Un’s regime is ramping up its crackdown on “decadent” Western fashion trends in North Korea, including dyed hair, tight jeans and piercings, according to a report.
Radio Free Asia says North Korea’s Socialist Patriot Youth League is now directing its repressive efforts at women in their 20s and 30s who wear long hair down to their waist, dye their locks brown, or don clothing emblazoned with large foreign letters.
An unnamed resident of the city of Hamhung told the US government-sponsored nonprofit news outlet that North Korea’s regime is also going after women who wear curve-hugging pants.
Those who are spotted wearing styles showing “capitalist flair” outdoors are forced to wait on the side of the road until a youth patrol is finished searching the area for other violators.

They can only be released to their homes if someone brings them more appropriate clothing.
