Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz showed up at Salon A’ La Mode for a much-needed haircut Friday after the salon owner, Shelley Luther, was freed after being jailed for not complying with the social distancing restrictions.

“[Cruz] just arrived at Salon A’ La Mode in Dallas to get his 1st haircut in 3 months. Owner Shelley Luther was released from jail yesterday,” local news reporter Jack Fink tweeted.

The salon became a flash point recently amid coronavirus lockdown orders after owner Shelley Luther was jailed for refusing to apologize to a judge for keeping her salon open. (RELATED: Conservatives On Social Media Rally Behind Business Owner Jailed For Refusing To Close Her Salon)

She was freed Thursday and burst into tears as she left jail.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott decriminalized violating social distancing in an order this week.
