Several customers have threatened to part ways with a popular beauty salon in Iowa after the manager shared a photo of Governor Kim Reynolds smiling next to Ivanka Trump.
The First Daughter went in for a styling session at Salon Spa W, located in the East Village of Des Moines, with the Republican politician on Monday.
Spa owner China Wong wrote in the picture post on social media: ‘supporting women in politics.’
Immediately after, Facebook users took to the comments section to slam the salon – which has stellar business reviews and 4,261 likes on their page.

One said she would be canceling future appointments, while demanding an apology from the salon before coming back.
Another criticized both Trump and Reynolds, calling them ‘beacons of feminism’.
Someone else simply said they would no longer be doing business with Salon W.
The manager followed up with a response after customers threatened to cut ties with the salon.
‘We believe everyone matters and deserves our indiscriminate care and kindness,’ President Wong first said in the post.
‘We were taken aback by the response to the image below of our Governor with Ivanka Trump who received services from our salon. We also recognize impact matters more than intent.

‘While we are not a partisan organization we do see it as part of our mission to welcome people to Des Moines and serve everyone. We share images of our clients, some that are recognizable public figures, to showcase our work.’
The high-profile beauty bar, located near the State Capitol, has worked with several other notable names, including Barack Obama, other local lawmakers, actors, actresses and beyond.
The manager furthermore said the company welcomes and supports individuals from all walks of life.
‘We also serve you –– our beautiful, diverse, and passionate community. We proudly share our work and celebrate all of you because our purpose is making people look and feel beautiful.
‘Again, we believe everyone matters and deserves our indiscriminate care and kindness,’ Wong concluded.
