It was a historic meeting designed to make the hairs stand up on the back of your head.
And the handshake between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un did a little more than that.
The meeting of the US president and the North Korean leader was all about the hairdos, if activity on Twitter was to be believed.
Their meeting in Singapore was dubbed the “bad hair summit” and the “bad hair conference” by social media users.

One Photoshopped image doing the rounds on Twitter swapped the two leaders’ haircuts in an attempt to arrive at hilarious results.
The pair were lampooned on Twitter for their somewhat unconventional haircuts.
One Twitter user wrote: “I think future historians will refer to this as the ‘bad hair summit’.”
Another user wrote: “The two worst haircuts in history are about trade hair care tips.”
RE-WATCH TRUMP’S PRESS CONFERENCE FROM YAHOO UK’S FACEBOOK PAGE:
As they ended their summit Mr Trump praised Mr Kim as a “very worthy, very smart negotiator”.
The US president said the meeting went “better than anybody could imagine”.
I know there are myriad more important issues with the Trump/Kim handshake, but when I see the image, I see the worst two heads of hair ever known to world politics.

This is such a historical moment.
I hope these two would take this opportunity to have a seriously, sincere discussion of each other’s hair style. pic.twitter.com/1mg1LV1KS9

Mr Trump was asked by reporters during his final appearance with Mr Kim what surprised him most during their meetings.
He said Mr Kim has a “great personality” and is “very smart”, which he described as a “good combination”.
The president said the pair had “a terrific day” and “learned a lot about each other and about our countries”. He added that he expects they will meet again many times.
Mr Trump also said he “absolutely” would invite Mr Kim to the White House.

The meeting was the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.
After meeting privately and with aides, Mr Trump and Mr Kim moved into the lunch at a long table covered with flowers.
As they entered, Mr Trump injected some levity to the day’s extraordinary events, saying: “Getting a good picture everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin? Perfect.”
Then they dined on beef short rib confit along with sweet and sour crispy pork.
And as they emerged from the meal for a brief stroll together, Mr Trump appeared to delight in showing his North Korean counterpart the interior of “The Beast”, the famed US presidential limousine known for its high-tech fortifications.
