Fix it – haircut ★

Leave a comment

A student today said, “I was cut my hair.” This is a common mistake. Another one is ” I cut my hair.” This isn’t technically wrong, but there is a better way to say that you had your hair done:

I had my hair cut.

注意:「 He had his hair cut」は「(無理やり)髪を切られた」の意にもなる

I got my hair cut.

I got a haircut.

You can also say:

I went to the hair salon.

I went to the beauty salon.

I went to the barber’s.


common mistake: よくある間違え

technically: 厳密に言えば
