Policewomen of Kuwait

After seeing the policewomen of Kuwait I was wondering when this was going to happen. I wrote about the new policewomen I saw in Manshar and the perfume that you could smell from 2 blocks away. Now it seems someone is finally telling them to tone it down. No colored lenses or excessive make-up? Good luck on those rules.

Here is the article from Arab Times:

Female police warned - ‘Keep it simple’

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 25: Deputy Minister of Interior Lieutenant General Ghazi Al-Omar has ordered the female supporting police force of all ranks to strictly stick to the proper police attire while they are on duty, reports Al-Watan daily.
In a circular, he banned the women police from wearing excessive hair accessories under hijab (headscarf), or wearing their hair long or dyeing the hair using eye-catching colors. They are also not allowed to use colored lenses or wear excessive make-up or wear more than one earring on each ear. They shouldn’t wear long nails or henna (a darkish orange natural dye) on their hands or tight-fitting clothing or abaya (traditional Kuwaiti dress).
According to Al-Watan, this circular has been issued, after some female officers reportedly became non-compliant with the ministry’s rules on proper police uniform."
