    Iran bans mullets and other 'unacceptable' Western hairstyles

    Iran has issued a new list of culturally appropriate haircuts for men, with bans on mullets and other Western hairstyles deemed unacceptable.




    An Iranian official presents the culturally acceptable cuts (Pic: AP/Mehr News Agency)

    The catalogue of looks approved by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, due to be launched at a Modesty and Veil Festival later this month, is apparently aimed at tackling the 'Western cultural invasion'.

    According to Jaleh Khodayar, the festival's organizer, the styles are inspired by Iranians' 'complexion, culture, religion and Islamic law' and will be modified for the country's provinces based on regional culture.

    No mullets allowed: A barber cuts hair in an official hairdressing show for men

    Ponytails, floppy fringes and elaborate spikes join the mullet on the banned list, though side-partings and Elvis quiffs get the thumbs-up.

    I am so glad to live in America.

    Not because I want a mullet.

    Just because I can have one if I want one.

    Just because the hair doesn't grow out of the crack, does not mean there is no hair in it... Oh you meant the other side. Never mind.

    I'm thinking this excludes most Canadian hockey players from the country.

    Here is the President of Iran: (Please don't ask me to pronounce his name. I can't do it).



    I would rather have a mullet than this guys hair style.
    He reminds me of Moe from the 3 stooges.

    So, women can still have mullets, they just can't unveil them?
