(WTVR) – Turkish Airlines issued a new policy banning their flight crew from wearing red lipstick and nail polish.

According to USA Today, the airline said in a statement, “The use of lipstick and nail polish in these colors by our cabin crew impairs visual integrity.”

The airline told CNN, “According to the generally accepted practices, personnel who work in the services sector are preferred to be artless and well groomed with a make-up in pastel tones.”

The airline also doesn’t allow for their employees to have blonde hair, according to TIME.

Turkish Airlines is working on putting together a new uniform to help establish their corporate identity.
