Is face control a Russian thing?

Wikipedia says:
"Face control refers to the policy of upscale nightclubs, casinos, restaurants and similar establishments to strictly restrict entry based on a bouncer's snap judgment of the suitability of a person's looks, money, style or attitude, especially in Russia and other former Soviet countries such as Ukraine"

Never realized that face control came from Eastern Europe. I always thought it's an American custom.
