After years of providing bridal hair and makeup services, Einat and Anat have expanded their business to become one of the most popular express beauty squads for non-brides as well. Upon entering the salon, clients are presented with menus detailing style options and the estimated time of service. Popular hair options include the "Punk Rock Braid" and an ingenious style they call "The Lift" (tight braids hidden under the hair that provide a subtle lift to eyes and cheekbones). On the makeup menu, the "Meow!" look is rock-star chic, while the cheekily-named "One Night Stand" provides temporary false eyelashes. Groups and special-event clients should book a week ahead of service.

100memet

icon-location-pin Tel Aviv City Center

Known for its affordable services, 100memet is the place to go for hairstyling that won't break the bank. All of the services here are available for a fixed price of NIS 100, making it a favorite among students, soldiers, and anyone on a budget. While 100Memet is pretty awesome in theory, you ultimately get what you pay for, so we recommend this spot for specific things that may be astronomically expensive elsewhere. Walk-ins are available, and 100memet is especially great for those looking to get a quick trim while on- the-go or an otherwise expensive Keratin treatment. In Tel Aviv, their location on Ben Yehuda specifically caters to wedding hair and specialty updos.
