5 (Jewish) Hairdos Bibi Could Have Had for Way Under $1,600

For $1,600, you can become the proud owner of an Apple laptop, a month’s lodging with three roommates and no windows in Manhattan or, if your name happens to be Benjamin Netanyahu, a fairly standard haircut.

In light of the recent news about Netanyahu’s extravagant hair expenditures on his trip to New York, we thought we’d put together a list of 5 other hairstyles that would have provided Bibi with more bang for his buck.

After all, we certainly wouldn’t want him to spend so much taxpayer money on his hair only to have it look… bad.

The Albert Einstein:

Perhaps the most famous scientist hair in the world, Albert Einstein’s hair is commonly associated with a distracted lifestyle.

The Zoolander:

If making one appear dishevelled is any indication, Ben Stiller’s hair in the original Zoolander is not too far removed from Einstein’s. Despite the flop of the Zoolander sequel, the look just might come back into style.

The Barbra Streisand (In Her Early Days):

Despite not wearing the hairstyle for years, Barbra Streisand’s head of curls has become iconic in its own right. Maybe $1,600 could help Bibi replicate it?

The Zohan:

Inspired by Adam Sandler’s movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, The Zohan is a bit of hair and a lot of 1980s. Mini-mullet, anyone?

The Wavy Blow-Out:

Joan Rivers’ wavy bob once made her the epitome of style and had women rush into salons to try to recreate it. Would the same look go over on Netanyahu?
