New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez may have won over conservatives, but she lost at least one hairdresser over her stance on marriage quality.

Hairstylist Antonio Darden has refused repeated requests to cut the governor’s hair because she’s against two people of the same sex getting hitched.

“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” Darden, who is openly gay, told Sante Fe’s KOB News. “Because of her stances and her views on this I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no again.”

To Darden, it’s really about “equality” and “dignity for everyone.” He said, “I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together. My partner and I have been together for 15 years.”

He cut the governor’s hair three times before. Unless she changes her opinion, he’s passing on those light brown locks.
