The last time we checked in on jailed Texas hair salon owner Shelley Luther, she was cooling her heels behind bars. Both the state Attorney General and the Governor were calling for her immediate release, but it took the action of the state supreme court to set her free on Thursday night. She reopened her business again the following day, along with all of the other salon owners in Texas, because the government rules on business closures had been relaxed.
So now that it’s over and she’s back to work, has her experience behind bars left her with any lasting lessons? Does she have any regrets? Not in the least. When asked by reporters, Luther said that if she had to, she’d do it all again. (CBS Dallas/Fort Worth)
Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther, who was briefly jailed for refusing to close her doors, said Friday morning she would do it again. “Absolutely, I would not change anything.”
Luther welcomed U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who said he flew from Houston to Dallas because he said he couldn’t think of a better place to get his first haircut in three months than her Salon A’La Mode.
Earlier this week, Dallas County Judge Eric Moye sent Luther to jail after she ignored his for seven days after she refused to close her salon.
