Iran Has Banned Mullets But Should and Will Not Stop There
So, the Iranian government is making mullets illegal. And, we're not for banning things, but this actually seems wise! Iran is also banning a number of other "decadent, Western" hairstyles -- we'll be able to see the full catalog after the oxymoronic Modesty and Veil Festival later this month, but so far, we know that dudes can't rock ponytails and "elaborate spikes."
The DJ Pauly D
What could be more decadent than the gallon of hair gel that Pauly employs in order to look as though he's being electrocuted? This is likely already illegal everywhere outside of the Tri-State Area, but if it isn't on Iran's list, it should be. Apparently, hair gel is permitted in small amounts, but if you give them an inch, they'll take a mile.

The faux-hawk is over, and that's something the Iranian police are fully aware of. If you want a mohawk, don't half-ass it: Get a mohawk. But not in Iran, probably.
Flock of Seagulls
Whether or not you know that Flock of Seagulls was a band, all the Iranian government will know is that your decadence is inexcusable.
