At Bushwick Open Studios last weekend, “invisible theater” artist and “naturally ungifted” hairdresser Katie Grace McGowan put up a sign offering to give people the same hairstyle preferred (but not required!) by the North Korean dictator, according to our sister blog Bedford + Bowery. Seven people took her up on the free haircut offer, because Brooklyn. The rest of you will have to pay a professional hairdresser to give you the “Dear Leader,” but you’d better move fast: Kim Jong-un has been experimenting with hats recently.
