America needs a haircut!

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

In defiance of state authorities, salon owner Shelley Luther, just reopened her business in Dallas, explaining that it is her right to earn money and care for her family. She said she has bills to pay and has been unsuccessful in getting help.

She said: “I understand that you guys have a job to do. I don’t fault you for that. We appreciate everything, we’re on your side obviously. You guys do a great job and we’re going to comply. And do everything you want us to do, except to close.”

Luther closed her “non-essential” business along with other salons on March 22, following a Dallas County order. But she is willing to risk citations and fines to open up. Governor

Gregg Abbott has not indicated when in-person services will be allowed, so Luther is taking things into her own hands. Many customers and others came to the opening to show their support for her.

The police also showed up and cited Luther for violating the county order. They came back later with a cease and desist letter, but Luther said she is not ceasing nor will she pay the fine. Luther said:

“I want them to know that we have rights. I am not doing anything criminal. If you cannot afford to pay us, and feed our families and help us because the systems are so backlogged, then you have to let us work.”

Some are critical of Luther’s actions, accusing her of putting others at risk, but she insists that she is providing a safe environment for the stylists and the customers. Both customers and stylists wear masks. Waiting customers stay in their cars until their turn.

Stylists change gloves after each customer and wash their hands frequently. Stations are six feet apart. As Luther said, she is following all the safety measures, except that a stylist and customer cannot maintain a six-foot distance.

Other salons remain closed, but they can’t stay closed forever. The sooner that the government figures out how to reopen, the better.
