Spanish Lesson Sixty-Nine: Hair and Hairstyles

Updated on December 9, 2013

Hey Readers,

Yeah, the week has come back full circle again! I seems like time just keeps going by at this fast pace. Of course it does when we're not looking forward to anything. Now that Christmas is ever-approaching, it seems that time has slowed down somehow. Speaking of Christmas, next week will be the last Spanish lesson of the year. I will be taking off from writing Spanish lessons until the new year has started.

Why? Because writers need breaks and it doesn't make sense to write during the holidays. There are just too many things going on. So in observance of Christmas and New Years, next week's lesson will be the last of 2013. It happens to be our next big lesson. So this week, we're going go light on the content. Let's learn about hair.

Today's Vocabulary

Hey Readers,

Today's vocabulary consists of different types of hair colors and hairstyles that are common enough. These phrases are pretty much exactly what they are when referring to hairstyles and colors. Check out the words, learn them, and we'll discuss their usage in the lesson session. Also keep in mind that there is always more than one way to say something. Don't fret if you see other words for the terms featured.

  • Pelo means "hear". Make sure its adjective remains masculine despite the gender of whose hair it is
  • Remember that adjectives follow the noun or pronoun
  • Always follow number as well as gender

Discussing Hair and Hairstyles

Hey Readers!

Here is the lesson for today. It's pretty simple. We're going to go over some sample sentences to help you get acclimated to this new vocabulary. Please note there are many more words that could be featured into today's lesson. For brevity, I've only introduced the important few that will be pertinent enough in daily routine. There are others you can learn by checking out some of the links below. Also check out the video as well. It features a young girl discussing getting her hair done in Madrid. It's pretty cool actually what she's learned. Give that a look!

Thanks for reading. Let's do some sample sentences!


Compare And Contrast

El pelo de Anthony es mas rojo que el pelo de Rafael. Anthony's hair is redder than Rafael's hair. Remember that "de" refers to possession and must be used to refer to a specific person's hair. Use "mas" to refer "more".


Like Or Dislike

Lydia no le gusta el pelo rizado. Lydia doesn't like curly hair. Never forget how to use gustar. Indirect Object Pronouns are needed to complete its conjugation.



Use In Context

Mi pelo es muy liso. My hair is very straight. Don't forget that "ser" is used for physical attributes of a person. Use that to refer "is, are, am" for a subject. Also don't forget about using "muy" to refer to things as "very".


Ask A Question

¿Nosotros tenemos los pelos largos? Do we all have long hair? Remember to reflect number and gender for adjectives every time.


Well Readers. That's about it for today. Thanks so much for reading! Remember, next week will be the last lesson of the year. We will be discussing... Pluscaumperfecto de indicativo. You can't miss that one!
