Have Something Done


In English, when we receive a service we usually use the structure have + object + verb -ed. In other words, “have something done”.

For example, when you go to the hairdresser’s you can say: I’m going to have my hair dyed tomorrow. That means that you are going to pay someone to dye your hair; you are receiving a service.

Careful! If you say I’m going to dye my hair tomorrow, you are implying that you are the person doing it.

Now practise with this exercise!
