House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) visited a San Francisco hair salon for a wash and blow-out on Monday, the salon’s owner told Fox News, despite a citywide closure on hairstyling businesses.

San Francisco only allowed hair salons to reopen with outdoor services on Tuesday, following a closure to combat the coronavirus pandemic. However, Pelosi apparently received indoor services at eSalon near the city’s Marina district on Monday.

Owner Erica Kious criticized Pelosi in an interview with Fox, while security footage obtained by the network appeared to show Pelosi inside the premises. Kious said a stylist who rents a chair in the salon contacted her about the visit, and that she doesn’t have control over whether the stylists bring customers to the salon because they’re currently not required to pay her.

“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 said.

“This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement. “The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment.”

National Review has reached out to the speaker’s office for additional comment.

San Francisco implemented some of the strictest coronavirus lockdown measures in the country in March, issuing a “shelter-in-place” order for residents with exceptions only for exercise and visits to grocery markets and pharmacies. The city allowed hair and nail salons to reopen on Tuesday for outdoor services only, and will clear gyms to open outdoors next week.

  1. There is no solon in the world that can do anything for Nauseous Nancy Piglosi or her equally homeless-looking daughter. Spackle and a putty knife helps, but must be put on thick enough to fill the wrinkles and it cracks…

  2. While I don’t believe in government forced mask wearing if a person who does and is complicit in such draconian orders (none of these have been made law as far as I know) they should be put in jail for a very long time for breaking such orders.

  3. That lady is hideous she has so much money why doesn’t she help pay the rent for these people whom The Democrats and she had shut down what does she do good with her money if you do nothing good with your money why the hell you have it for evil… she’s a public person and now she’s exposed nasty Jackass stop voting for the old crypt keeper people

  4. Another case, with Pelosi right in the middle of it again, where she imparts the message “What’s good for me is not for thee”. Just like the loser mayor, Lori Lightweight, in Chicago.
