Help getting my hair cut auf Deutsch
I've got most of the basics down - ordering food, getting directions, etc - but one thing that none of the language books/courses discuss is how to get your hair cut. I know langer/kurzer, but I need a few more details...
What are the words for:
Layers? Example - I want more/less layers, or want it all one length (no layers).
Bangs(Fringe in the UK)? Example - I want to grow out my bangs out or want shorter bangs.
Any help is appreciated!
Layers wouldn't be that easy, but not impossible.
I stumbled across a beauty school in London offering cheap haircuts when I was traveling. The girl who did my hair was from Eastern Europe and her accent, not to mention her English was terrible. I mimed out layers and she gave me one of the best haircuts of my life!
Layers are 'Stufen' or a 'Stufenschnitt' it literally means steps.
A fringe is a 'Pony' (misleading I know, I assumed it meant pony tail at first.)
This website could be useful for you http://www.dict.cc/ its the best German dictionary website I've found.
I'll try this out next week when I get my hair done. Most people I've spoken with so far have been pretty patient with my mix of German/English/charades, and they seem to understand me so I'm feeling a little more confident. (Although it has mostly been shopkeepers so they are probably just hoping I'll buy something!)
Good luck at the hairdressers!
