Tickets went on sale today for a pre-Valentine’s Day concert featuring Brian McKnight and En Vogue at Blaisdell Arena.

McKnight, a Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer, songwriter and producer who has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, has performed on Valentine’s Day here before — he actually proposed to then-girlfriend Annalisa Mungcal during a 2010 Blaisdell concert. His most recent visit came a year later when he performed at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.

I’ve been a haircut nomad for nearly a year — and it hasn’t been pretty.

Stylist Julie Longboy gives Bruce Omoto a hot towel for his face while his hair is shampooed at The Barbershop.

Between waiting longer than usual to tame the mane and dealing with barbers unfamiliar with my steadily receding hairline, I’m still trying to find a replacement for my longtime stylist, who retired in 2014.

Lucky for me, I think I’ve found a new favorite in The Barbershop, a national franchise with its first Hawaii location at 563 Farrington Highway. For $16.50 (or $16 cash) you get a haircut and shampoo plus a hot towel for your face, an eyebrow and mustache trim and a vibrating shoulder massage to finish things on a relaxing note.

But it’s more than a haircut at The Barbershop, which boasts individual booths that are “designed for privacy” and include their own washbasins so you’re not doing the walk of shame back to your seat with dripping-wet hair. You get your own TV to watch, too! Call (808) 674-1200 or visit http://808ne.ws/1E5f4Ud.
