Common English Words For A British Haircut ✔Lesson transcript:

Nearly  every single one of us has it, it grows every day and needs to be cut  regularly. Today we talk about the hair on the top of your head. In this  English language listening podcast we talk through all the vocabulary and English phrases you might encounter in a UK barber or hairdresser shop.

For many of us, hair is a very touchy subject. Get a hair cut wrong and you have to live with the results for weeks, often visibly, until it grows out. So asking for the correct hair cut in a second language might be fraught with risk.

Today  we talk you through a variety of hairstyles with explaining what they  are, how you might hear them being asked for in just about any hair  dressers or barber shop in the UK.

I always feel good after I change my hair. You get a haircut and feel positive and ready to take on the day.
⭐ Kirstin Maldonado, Musician

Hair dressers typically handle more complex hairstyles for females, although they will often state that they are “Unisex”  meaning they will happily style hair for anyone. While boys and men  probably use barbers’ shops the most, partly because they specialise in  shorter hair and beards.

Even if you know what you're asking for, getting your hair cut requires some specialist vocabulary, and Adept English is here to help. Enjoy.
