One of the young women getting ‘relooked’ at Kiev’s main airport said: “We won’t be receiving this treatment on a daily basis, but I always try to make myself look decent. We’re the first to greet airline passengers and the last to say goodbye, so we have to look our best.”

Ukrainian border guards take part in a master class in the Borispol airport near Kiev on Friday. Hairdressers and make-up artists conducted master classes for Ukrainian border guards who will meet tourists at Ukraine's main air hub during the Euro 2012 football championship.

Officials at Kiev’s main airport arranged for a team of experts to give the passport inspectors a makeover masterclass.

Stylist Andrei Yudin said: “Even without any make-up they look astonishing. I just do it for the sake of touching a beautiful face one more time.”

It is not clear to what extent the guards’ male counterparts will be expected to keep up their appearances, or what the Ukrainian-based Femen feminist group makes of the idea.
