Islamic Republic's culture ministry releases pictures of appropriate male: Short hair – in, ponytails – out
The catalogue was presented by ministry officials in a press conference ahead of the "Modesty and Veil Festival". It includes pictures of men sporting short and conservative haircuts, some styled with gel.
"These hairstyles are inspired by the Iranians' complexion, culture and religion, and Islamic law," said Jaleh Khodayar, who is in charge of the festival, which will be held later this month. "We are happy that the government has backed us in designing these hairstyles."
The catalogue was distributed in accordance with a clothing law approved by the Iranian parliament four years ago at the start of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's first term as president.
