New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R) said she would be happy to take her “shoulder length bob” to a new stylist, after Antonio Darden publicly refused to cut her hair in protest of her opposition to marriage equality. “First of all, if reporters would ask me the first question, which would be ‘Is he my hair stylist?’ The answer is no,” Martinez told reporters after a meeting with the White House. “He did my hair three times when I first moved to Santa Fe. But frankly he talked too much … I just went, ‘You know, I go here to relax.” Darden told local news reporters that Martinez shouldn’t return to his hair salon until she respects the right of gay and lesbian people to marry.
