Jaime King Is First Client Back at Salon Re-Opening, Asks Governor to Drop Charges Against Salon

Jaime King gets her hair cut by stylist Ted Gibson on the first day of the salon STARRING by Ted Gibson’s public re-opening on Monday (August 17) in Los Angeles.

The Black Summer actress was the first client back in Ted‘s chair, exactly five months after salons in California were originally shut down by the governor.

The salon is socially distanced with chairs at least 8.5 feet apart and within their own private station. The salon is also by appointment only with no front desk and no assistants. It’s also completely cashless and without retail products. The salon is following all of the CDC guidelines that were officially endorsed in July.

The state of California has not given a timetable for salons to reopen indoor services and Ted received a citation from the police at the reopening.

“Despite the discrimination he’s experienced throughout his life, Ted has always worked to lead by example — the @STARRING Salon (co-founded with Jason Backe) is a reflection of his commitment to supporting local communities and being a part of keeping our economy up and running,” Jaime wrote on her Instagram account. “By opening up the salon yesterday, Ted and Jason stood in solidarity with many of the 53,000 State Board of Barbering & Cosmetology licensed establishments who have implemented COVID-compliant safety protocols and are choosing to make customer & employee safety a priority.

Ted, I am so proud of you for always standing up for yourself and pushing things forward for your entire industry! ❤️ #SaveOurSalons. We are asking @gavinnewsom and the @MayorofLA to drop these charges and #OpenSalonsNow!” she added.

Jaime recently landed an exciting movie role.
