Brush off for official haircuts

Iranians prefer foreign styles to recently released list of government-approved styles.

    The men and boys frequenting the barbershops of Tehran have plenty of ideas about how their hair should look. Many prefer the latest styles from the United States and Europe.

    But the Islamic Republic of Iran recently issued a booklet of government-approved haircuts for men in an attempt to turn them away from Western cuts.

    Alireza Ronaghi reports on barbers and fashion designers in Tehran, and how they are attempting to integrate old styles with new.
