WASHINGTON -- Quelling growing national concern over the status of her hair, Gov. Susana Martinez's office said on Wednesday that other hairstylists had offered their services after hers quit over philosophical disagreements about same-sex marriage.

The New Mexico Republican's shoulder-length bob had been left in peril when stylist Antonio Darden, objecting to her opposition to marriage equality, declined to take an appointment this week.

Unfortunately for Darden's sake, others did not join his mutiny.

Martinez spokesman Scott Darnell told the Albuquerque Journal that the governor had received calls "from about a half-dozen hairstyling businesses today saying they would be more than happy to cut the Governor's hair."

Darden had cut Martinez's hair on three occasions, so the emotional attachment between the two likely wasn't too strong. The Huffington Post reached out to the stylist, but the call went to voice mail.
