Jailed Texas Salon Owner Says “Business is Booming” Following Her Release

Appearing on Fox News, jailed Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther said business is booming since she was released from prison.

“Business is booming.” Luther told Steve Doocey “We have people traveling from across the United States to come in to get a haircut just to prove a point that they support us.”


Per DailyCaller, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz visited Luther’s shop last week for his “first haircut in three months.”

Luther refused to apologize for opening her Salon A La Mode in Dallas and going against the state’s stay-at-home orders, which resulted in a district judge sending her to prison for seven days. The Texas Supreme Court freed her after two days as Republican Gov. Greg Abbott came to Luther’s defense by changing the state’s coronavirus orders.

She added, “There’s a lot of people that aren’t getting the financial help they need, and across the nation I’m getting letters and messages from people that can’t get through to unemployment, and it’s sad, and so I think people, it was just relatable to people.”
