So here I am on my third trip to a chic Jerusalem hair and beauty Salon. This time it is in the breathtaking neighborhood of Talbiya. Salon Tzvi Michaeli’s location is on a very tres riche street. The stately homes of the Prime Minister and President of Israel reside here as well as diplomats and high ranking officials. Very affluent Arab residents in Jerusalem lived in this elegant area until 1948. Their oriental houses still stand looking majestic. Other famous landmarks include, the Jerusalem Sherover Theater and Inbal hotel.
I met with hair stylist Chanan who has been at the salon for 12 years and graduated from the Bet Elisheva Hairdressing School in Katamon. Customers from all over the world and all over Israel make appointments here especially during the Jewish high holidays and summertime.
What’s the most requested style? Everything. From crazy to the classic look; Everybody wants something different and the trained staff accommodates all interests. Natural hair colors and highlights is usually the choice. Busiest days? Thursdays and Fridays. It is suggested to book in advance but even if you call at the last minute, they will try to fit you in.
While waiting for my appointment, a choice of chococcino, cappuccino, espresso long or short, or tea was offered. I chose cappuccino and it was delicious. There is a relaxing waiting area outside with comfortable cushioned chairs and a matching table. The salon is small but very smart.
Products? Loreal and their own line, Tzvi Michaeli whose ingredients are made up of natural oils. These bottles are sold and used only in the store.
Hours? Sunday-Thursday, 9am-7pm. Monday, 9am-2pm and Fridays, 8am-2:30pm. 02-566-1666. Check out the beauty dept. You can get your nails and toes done. Also skin treatments and make overs.
