It’s a barbershop so crazy they’re actually giving away Kim Jong-un haircuts!

They say you can’t truly understand a person until you’ve walked a mile in their hair. That’s the philosophy (I’m assuming) behind Peace Barber, a one-day barbershop being set up by Madame Tussauds wax museum on 16 July.

The shop won’t be held in the actual Tokyo museum, instead it will be at a dedicated pop-up shop space in Shibuya called n_space. If you go there now you can see a wax figure of Donald Trump tweeting in anticipation of the big day as well as other figures on display. He will be joined by six other celebrities from Japan and abroad.

This barbershop is unique, not only because it only offers the distinctive coif of North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, but also because it’s absolutely free for those willing to take the plunge. However, these cuts are also being referred to as “performances” by the event organizers, so you might have to get your despotic do done in front of a crowd.

Afterwards you can get a photo taken with the wax figure of President Trump and re-live all the pageantry of their summit together in Singapore.

Potential customers had a range of feelings over the offering, with some severely tempted by the price.

“Too bad they don’t offer Trump hair as well.”
“It’s like a black telephone factory!”
“Can I get back my hair afterward?”
“But I’m bald….”
“I wouldn’t put my own body up as a gag.”
“…they did say it was free though.”
“Might as well. Not like women are flocking to me anyway.”

That’s the spirit! If you too have no sense of vanity whatsoever, why not try out this once-in-a-lifetime offer? I suppose the premise is that by wearing the hair of Kim Jong-un you can maybe see things from his perspective. This in turn will help build bridges of peace throughout the world.

However, a few months ago, one of our reporters had gotten the very same haircut, and it instead transformed him into a ruthless, womanizing salon manager. So tread with caution.
