House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Gets Hair Done at COVID-Closed Salon

‘Blow dry for me but not for thee’

By Katy Grimes, September 1, 2020 5:28 pm

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California was caught on security cameras visiting a San Francisco hair salon Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s business lockdown orders, and local ordinances keeping hair and nail salons closed during the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News reported Tuesday.

“In security footage obtained by Fox News, and timestamped Monday at 3:08 p.m. Pacific Time, the California powerhouse is seen walking through eSalon in San Francisco with wet hair, and without a mask over her mouth or nose.”

I hope she paid the stylist in cash.

“I am so deflated because of the salon lockdowns, but this doesn’t surprise me — I am not aghast,” a Sacramento stylist told the California Globe. “Frankly, this is just so much more sad to me, than someone who is shocked… so hypocritical, but so typical.”

She said she has a friend who is also a stylist who has yet to receive an unemployment check from the EDD going back to March. “She’s not received one check… how are they making it?” she asked.

This salon owner said if one of her clients contracted COVID from her while she was “illegally working,” she was told she would have been fined $10,000.

“It’s a sad state of affairs – we’re totally screwed no matter what we do – feed our families, or starve our businesses.”

“I wish this exposure would blow Nancy’s hair back, but instead it will probably blow over,” she added. “And how disrespectful that she wasn’t wearing a mask – does she think that poorly of hair stylists?”

“This is bullshit,” California attorney Harmeet Dhillon Tweeted. “Every single woman in California knows EXACTLY where you can and cannot get your hair done. You think we are looking like this by choice?”

Several comments left on Dhillon’s Tweet expressed the frustration felt by most of California: “I can’t even… with the HYPOCRISY!!! Everyone should open up their business.”

Another said, “Different set of rules for the elites. And also a 2 tier justice system as well in this country. But yeah, let’s go ahead and fight each other, riot and submit and accept the hypocrisy.”

“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,” San Francisco Salon owner Erica Kious told Fox News, adding that she “can’t believe” the speaker didn’t have a mask on.

Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.

Notably, Nancy Pelosi is/was related to California Governor Gavin Newsom by marriage: Nancy Pelosi was like an aunt by marriage to Gavin Newson, as her brother-in-law (Pelosi) married Gavin Newsom’s aunt, Barbara, making her Gavin Newsom’s auntie – until they divorced.

Sacramento stylists have had to be creative. Some say they did lots of “garage haircuts.” Others did backyard haircuts. Some even traveled to clients’ homes, or invited people into their homes who were not worried about the virus. California Globe calls this “California’s Speakeasy economy.”

The Sacramento stylist said she was appalled at the statement Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill gave to Fox, when he “maintained that the speaker was following the rules.”

“The speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements,” he said.

Except when she doesn’t wear a mask at an illegal hair styling appointment.

“What she did proves the Democrats know the lockdown is a staged farce meant to hurt Americans and help Democrats win,” a friend commented.

“We were closed down for months, then opened for 6 weeks, then closed again for 6 weeks,” Sacramento Salon owner and stylist Chantel said in an interview. “I placed an $800 product order right before the last shutdown.”

Chantel has had some real business challenges, but expressed them articulately:

“This is all so crazy… get shutdown for 2.5 months, then reopen for 6 weeks, then shutdown again (effective immediately). Then we find out that we can reopen on August 31st which is 3 days after the official announcement. Is everyone keeping up with this this… this is the life of my industry. We all have kids and families and bills to pay. This is not ok. Most of us are still behind from the last shutdown. I’m sorry, I know I sound like a downer but this is what is happening. Everyone has someone who they go to for haircuts, coloring, you name it. Please give them some love – it’s been rough to say, at the least. 2020 can go now.”

Chantel said she heard last evening that another salon was permanently closing in Sacramento. “We’re struggling so hard to do the right thing,” Chantel said.

But she also said getting a call from Speaker Pelosi to wash and blow-out her hair is kind of a lose-lose situation. “When approached by a ‘Pelosi,’ it’s hard to say ‘no.'”

However, she said if any of the stylists in her salon wanted to come in and work, she would have said “no.”

“They just don’t know what it’s like for us,” Chantel added. “I’m glad she got busted.”

Another friend summed it up: “Blow dry for me but not for thee.”

  1. Hard to swallow her imperious behavior! Fashionable color-coordinated designer masks, boutique ice creams, exclusive hair salon visit. What a phoney! She even invited us all to visit Chinatown when the pandemic was invading!

    1. Nancy Pelosi & Co. are all sociopaths:
      https://www.dictionary.com/browse/sociopath
      It’s a bad scene that will only get worse when sociopathic people have power over you; whether it’s your third grade teacher, your boss, your spouse, your governor, your congresswoman, your legislator, your senator, or the violent criminal who has recently been let out of prison “so he won’t get COVID.”

  2. Nancy Pelosi makes me wish COVID was real. This wretched, wicked, dishonest, horrible monster is 81 yrs old. She’s a fossil. Doesn’t she have an expiration date? God bless the salon owner for exposing this. She should open her salon, no masks, and go back to full operation. When the health Nazi’s show up to fine her and warn her, fight it in court and attach pictures of mask-less Nancy Pelosi

  3. Sad truth is that the MSM won’t report this. I watched Tucker Carlson tonight and he repeatedly showed the video. MSM won’t show it just like they won’t show the riot videos in dem cities. Good thing we have the California Globe giving us the real story.

  4. Nancy wants to know if you like her hair? She just had it done today in San Francisco at a closed salon where no one else is allowed, including the owner! Oh, by the way, “let them eat ice cream” Nancy was not wearing a mask! She slapped science right in the face. Way to go Nancy. The little people appreciate you had your hair done. Now is there something you can do about your morals and ethics?

    As one of the little people, I say the gig is up! It is time to return to our lives, like Nancy has done and always did!

    1. Funny, Cali Girl, and you’re so right —- Blowout Nancy is telling us with her actions that there is no reason for this endless and insane lockdown. OPEN UP the state for BUSINESS NOW.

  5. This salon should not have allowed anyone inside, that is the Owner’s Responsibility. She should get in trouble for allowing Speaker Pelosi in. All salons rent their chairs to the stylist, but are responsible for the stylist. Makes me wonder how many other people have been allowed in when it should have been closed!
    But no tape clients coming in (Pelosi) and forward to FAKE NEWS
    The owner should be FINED!!!!!!

    1. Nancy Pelosi knew damn well the edicts that Gov. Newsom and his authoritarian Democrat cronies had imposed on businesses and the citizens of California to supposedly halt the spread of the virus. As a pampered Democrat party elitist, Nancy Pelosi arrogantly thought those edicts did not apply to her. She acts like a mafioso queen. Delusional Nancy Pelosi needs to resign in shame and willingly give up her congressional pension.

  6. This will hopefully remove her from house speaker seat. It’s proof positive she has no concern that COVID is a problem in salons. Her and her parties agenda is exactly what they where caught saying amongst their elite left group, “it’s important to keep up the unrest and business closures, what is a few small businesses and job loss in comparison to A rebounding economy which will ensure a Trump re-election”. This is has been and continues to be their political play to remove the current administration. Period! They could care less about small business closures and suffering Jobless Americans who will be homeless next if they don’t stop the disgusting game playing with people’s life’s. Gross negligence of so called leaders. She needs to go away, plain and simple. .
