You just know that young Iranians are laughing their butts off:

The haircut guidelines appear to be aimed at balancing the more aggressive enforcement with a softer promotion. On Monday, the director of the Veil and Chastity Day festival, Jaleh Khodayar, appeared at a news conference with hundreds of barbers and hairdressers to release the haircut posters and explain the campaign.
“We do not intend to reverse the culture,” Ms. Khodayar said, according to the semiofficial ILNA news agency. “We want to preserve our culture and respect Iranian tradition and come up with hairstyles that confront Western cultural invasion.”

The Veil and Chastity Day Festival? Oh, that’s one hell of a throwdown, for sure.
