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.
