Hawaii is not home to a bevy of “haute” barbershops. However, we do have our fair share of fine salons and spas providing discerning gents with the ultimate in clean shaves, cuts and facial treatments. So, instead of presenting mediocre mom and pop options, here are my top 5 salon and spa selections for men.
1 Salon Blanc
For the forward-thinking trendsetting male, Salon Blanc is the choice spot as they effortlessly stay ahead of the curve. Like fashion, Salon Blanc progresses with the times in a cool, sleek, industrial atmosphere. For the style-seeking gent, Salon Blanc is one of the best options in Oahu.
2 W Salon
Voted Best of Honolulu Spas, W Salon is “beyond the trend” focusing on stylish, quality services. Men can expect premiere cuts and clean shaves by a stellar team at W Salon. And, for the Ultimate Experience, add Kerastase or Shu Uemura products to your treatment.

4 The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maui
The Alpha Male Facial is a revolutionary anti-aging facial treatment that begins with a citrus scented, manual micro-dermabrasion scrub to exfoliate and refine the surface of the skin. Next, a potent mask of alpha omega complex, healing Hawaiian noni gel and a rich colostrums serum combine to offer remarkable anti-aging results. You alpha males are so easy.

5 The Kahala Spa
Hit the spa at the Kahala Hotel for a slew of man-friendly services that are available. Come in unshaven, sit back in the barber chair and indulge in the art of the straightedge shave. This treatment incorporates steamed towels and a soothing bomb finish. Take your skincare needs one step further with the Kane (Hawaiian for men) Facial designed to address specific complexion concerns. The facial places emphasis on relieving tension and fatigue and revitalizes the natural balance of your skin. It also places focus on stressed skin caused by over-aggressive shaving and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.Like Haute Living Hawaii? Join our Facebook page.
