House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got her hair done at a San Francisco salon on Monday — in spite of local coronavirus rules barring indoor personal-care services, Fox News reported.
Security footage obtained by the outlet shows the California Democrat strolling through eSalon in the city’s Pacific Heights neighborhood at around 3:10 p.m. on Monday.
She can be seen wearing a black smock with her wet locks slicked back — but no mask on her face.
Hair salons and barber shops in San Francisco have been shuttered since March, and officials on Monday gave the OK to reopen, but for outdoor service only.
Salon owner Erica Kious called the congresswoman’s visit “a slap in the face.”
“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work,” Kious told Fox.
“We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right?” Kious added. “It is just disturbing.”
One of the independent stylists Kious works with reached out to her on Sunday night and requested to rent a chair in the salon for an appointment.
“I’ll be there at 2:45 tomorrow. Pelosi assistant just messaged me to do her hair,” the stylist wrote in a text message to Kious published by Fox.
Kious replied: “Pelosi?”
“I was like, are you kidding me right now?,” she told the outlet.
In a statement to Fox, Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill insisted that the speaker was following the rules.
“The speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements,” he said.
