Ponytails, mullets, and large spikes are forbidden but looking like Elvis or Simon Cowell is ok. A neatly trimmed goatee and "modest" quantities of hair gel also made the non-evil list. From the article: "'The proposed styles are inspired by Iranians' complexion, culture and religion, and Islamic law,' said Jaleh Khodayar, who is in charge of a Modesty and Veil Festival later this month at which the guide will be promoted."
