November 10th, 2015

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

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.
