Kim Jong Un Debuts Sculptured New Haircut And Trimmed Eyebrows

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, already known for his unique hairdo, has updated his look.

Kim's new hairstyle remains cropped on the sides and heavy on top, but he appears to have grown his hair out and had it sculpted into a trapezoidal shape. And, for good measure, it seems as if he's had his eyebrows trimmed:

CNN called it a "power haircut." The New York Daily News described it as "barbarous." New York magazine said it was "ambitious." And Vox had a list of 29 questions about the hair.

While much ado is being made over the 'do, it's really just a more sculpted version of a look Kim sported for a period of time last spring, right down to the eyebrows:
