Ahead of summit, this Vietnam hairdresser is giving people free Trump & Kim haircuts
Hanoi, Feb 25: The second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is almost here and it is Vietnam's turn to be the host this time. The Southeast Asian country is preparing itself for the historic meeting scheduled on February 27 and 28 and the common man is also hit by hysteria ahead of the event.
A hairdresser in Hanoi named Le Tuan Duong is busy giving people hair styles that are sported by both Trump and Kim ahead of the summit and that also for free, Sky News reported. There is no debate between democratic and undemocratic leaderships when it comes to the haircut as Kim has found as many admirers as has Trump.

The hairstyles also had their inherent meanings. According to Duong, while Kim's cut represented the youth more, that of Trump spoke more about power.
"Hanoi is a city of peace. When Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un decide to come here to talk about restoring peace, I think I should do something to show that Hanoi people welcome the summit," Duong told Sky News.
From nine-year-old to 66-year-old Duong is not short of customers who want to identify themselves with the historic summit in some way.
Trump and Kim had met over their historic first meeting in Singapore on June 12 last year where they spoke over peace in Korean Peninsula. However, the agreement that they had published after the meeting did not convince too many people.
