Have Something Done

In English, we use the structure ‘have something done‘ to say that we don;t do the action ourselves but someone else does the action ourselves.

When we say ‘I have my hair cut’, we mean someone else cuts our hair.

We can say who does the action by using the word ‘by’:

‘I have my hair cut by the hairdresser.’
