Episode4 Doing Hair （We may also say, “to fix your hair,” but the most common expression is “to do your hair.”）and Getting Dressed
I go back into the bathroom to finish doing my hair. Before I put the hot curlers（another name for a curler） in, I had put a little gel in my hair to give it some volume（means she made it thicker, or fuller, or bigger）.
I also like to use my hairdryer to give my bangs（bangs are hair that goes over your forehead） a little more shape. I take out the curlers one by one and brush through （This is a hairbrush，when you paint there is a paintbrush）them into the style I like.
I finish it off with a little hairspray（The bottle that has the hairspray, on the top has a nozzle that takes the liquid and spreads it out ） and I’m ready to get dressed.
In my bedroom, I look in my closet for a skirt （a piece of clothing that goes around a woman’s waist ）and blouse （a shirt that has a collar）to match.【The thing you put your clothes on is called a hanger， which hangs down from a bar – a pole that is at the top of your closet. 】
The office I work in is pretty casual （means to be less formal – to be informal – to be more relaxed）so I don’t need to wear a suit to work.
【a suit for a woman is a formal piece, or a formal set of clothing, usually with a blouse, a jacket over the blouse, and then a nice skirt or pants that go with the jacket; For men, when they wear a suit, usually they have shirt, pants, jacket, and a tie.】
On Fridays, we’re allowed to be even more casual so most people wear jeans and sweaters （are like very warm shirts ）to the office, but no one dares to show up in t-shirts（that don’t have a collar that are very informal） and shorts（like pants but they do not go to the bottom of your leg）.
I put on the skirt and blouse and open the top dresser drawer to get some pantyhose（ a combination of a pair of pants and a sock）.【in the closet, you hang your clothes often; in a dresser, you put your clothes in a dresser which is a piece of furniture that has several drawers, or several boxes that you can pull out and put clothing into】
I wish I could wear my tennis shoes to work, but I pick out a pair of heels （refers here to a pair of shoes that have a little stick at the back of the shoe that makes the woman taller. We sometimes called these high heels.）and put them on. I was ready to go.
