HAIRSTYLE từ lâu đã là một chủ đề rất hot đối với giới trẻ ngày nay, đặc biệt trong IELTS Speaking Part 1. Đây có thể là sở đoản với nhiều bạn vì vốn hiểu biết về từ vựng, mẫu câu về chủ đề này còn khá hạn hẹp. Vì thế, WISE ENGLISH gửi đến các bạn: 7 CÂU TRẢ LỜI MẪU CHO SPEAKING PART 1 – HAIRSTYLE
I. What’s your favourite hairstyle?
I don’t actually have a favorite hairstyle these days. But approximately 3 years ago, I used to be a big fan of the undercut style which was compatible with my round face. However, at the present, I don’t really care much, so I just let the barber do whatever he wants.

II. Do you care about hairstyles?
Definitely yes! As somebody who always keeps on top of fashion, I have to admit that my hair has to stay in immaculate condition as well as up-to-date in style and trend; that’s why it takes me quite long to sort myself out in the morning. Generally speaking, I like my hair to be stylish and trendy.

IV. Do you go to a barber’s shop or hair salon?
Oftentimes I have my haircut in a hair salon since there are various hairstylists in there who are really knowledgeable about styling my hair. They know what hairstyle is most suitable for me, not only that, they have other services such as hair coloring, hair rebonding, hair waving, and so on.
They can suggest or give professional advice on how to make my hair look great.
- Oftentimes /ˈɔːfntaɪmz/ or /ˈɔːftəntaɪmz/ → so many times → thường xuyên

V. Was there a time that you felt disappointed of your hairstyle?
Yes and that was so heartbreaking! I consider it as a nightmare. I remember I wanted to have a fringe since it was so trendy during my high school days but what I got was a hair disaster. I got an uneven fringe and it was shorter than what I wanted. I believe, that hairdresser was unprofessional.
