A sophisticated addition to bouncing at night clubs. Usually perfomed by a designated host(s). Face control persons are there to decide which individuals in the line are priveleged to get in without having to wait in line and sometimes avoiding cover charges/lists/frisking. If you get picked out from the line at the club it means that you're priveleged!
Mike Myers picking out Ryan Phillippe out of the crowd and gettin' him into Studio 54 nightclub - face control in it's purest form. (from Studio 54... duh!)
