Locals in Vietnam get Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un makeover ahead of leaders' summit in Hanoi

Vietnam has found two unlikely style icons in Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.

Two locals living in the nation's capital have gone to extreme lengths to prepare for the leaders' summit next week in Hanoi.

Le Phuc Hai, a 66-year-old taxi driver, swapped his black hair for orange in anticipation of the trip.

He said: "I really like Donald Trump so I want to have Donald Trump's hairstyle."

Unlike real life, his counterpart is nine years old.

Gia Huy has been nicknamed Un thanks to the striking resemblance he bears to the 35-year-old North Korean leader.

"Many people say that I look like Kim Jong-un, especially when I have this hairstyle," he said.

The pair even posed for pictures in Hanoi and shook hands after their makeovers.

Their hairdresser Le Tuan Duong is offering free Trump and Kim makeovers until the summit finishes on February 28.
