A MASKLESS Nancy Pelosi was branded a “hypocrite” after she was seen getting her hair washed and blow-dried in a shuttered San Francisco salon.

In startling security footage obtained by Fox News, the House Speaker can be seen walking through the salon on Monday afternoon with wet hair and not wearing a mask.

The eSalon stylist can be seen following her wearing a black face mask.

The images sparked outrage among conservatives who were quick to point out Pelosi – who has slammed the president for not wearing a mask – was breaking the city’s coronavirus-prevention rules.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

“Speaker Pelosi has pushed policies that would keep our economy closed and our small businesses shut down,” Senate Republicans tweeted.

They then added: “But for herself? A salon visit whenever she pleases.”

Political rivals were quick to point out the hypocrisy

The Conservative group @ReaganBattalion posted: “Your child can’t go to school, your business has been forced closed for months….but @SpeakerPelosi’s hair will be made, because her hair is more essential than your life.”

Salons in the city had been closed since March and were only notified that they could reopen on September 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.

The salon owner told Fox that she has independent stylists that work for her and rent out chairs in her salon.

Erica Kious said: “One of the stylists who rents a chair from me contacted me Sunday night.”

According to the outlet the message said: “I’ll be there at 2:45 tomorrow. Pelosi assistant just messaged me to do her hair” to which Kious replied “Pelosi?”

“I was like, are you kidding me right now? Do I let this happen? What do I do?” Kious told the outlet.

“It was a slap in the face that she [Pelosi] 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.”

Kious added that she “can’t believe” that Pelosi was not wearing a mask and added: “We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? It is just disturbing.”

Kious also said that Pelosi received a wash and blow-dry, but said that “you’re not supposed to blow dry hair” according to the coronavirus safety guidelines.

“We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can’t – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless and honestly beaten down.

“I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen. I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income.”

She added: “The fact that they did this, and she came in, it’s like a slap in the face.”

The images are particularly shocking as the House Speaker has regularly slammed the president for not wearing a mask.

She has also cited US Centers for Disease Control guidelines recommending Americans wear face masks in public, especially when physical distancing measures are difficult.

The House Speaker was panned on social media

Just this week, she declared the President had “slapped science right in the face” by allowing an audience of mainly maskless invitees on the White House lawn to watch his speech to the Republican convention.

And after the President was pictured not wearing a mask in May, Pelosi was quick to quip: “It’s a vanity thing, I guess, with him.” 

In July, Pelosi announced all members will be required to wear a mask when voting on the House floor. 

Failure to wear would be “serious breach of decorum” for which members could be removed from the chamber, she warned

“It’s a sign of respect for the health, safety and well-being of others present in the chamber and in surrounding areas,” she said. 

Pelosi’s spokesman insisted she was complying with the rules as told to her.

“This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business,” said Drew Hammill in a statement.

“The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment.”

More than 5,000 businesses in the San Francisco Bay area alone have closed since March, over 2,000 of them permanently, during the pandemic.
