Chilliwack’s MLA didn’t waste any time finding a salon to tame his hair, once they began re-opening on May 19.
Laurie Throness posted a rare selfie on his Facebook page on May 25, of himself in a salon chair at a Great Clips. He and the stylist are both donning masks as she works on the back of his head.
Many have been torn between letting their hair grow long during the pandemic, or cutting it themselves. Throness chose to let his grow, but his relief was spelled out simply in post.
“Aaah, at last,” he quipped.
Throness had a little fun with the lockdown situation, too. On May 9, he posted a pic of himself playing Scrabble with a small statue of The Thinker.
“Things are getting a little bit squirrely in the house so I had a friend over to play a game. Sometimes we disagree about a word, but he’s such a deep thinker – he always wins,” he joked.
