Hello! Can you please explain why these verbs in the fourth sentence (Me gustaría lavar, cortar y peinar por favor) are not in the reflexive form? Thank you!
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
This is because when you go to the hairdresser's these are used as types of "services" so you often use them as infinitives on their own as in specifying which service you would like, instead of using them with the reflexive pronoun: Me gustaría lavarme el pelo, cortarme el pelo y peinarme el pelo.
You may also see them advertised with their prices, as, for example:
Lavar: 15 euros
Cortar: 30 euros
Lavar y cortar: 38 euros
Peinar: 25 euros
As some of the different services they offer at the hairdresser's and their prices.
I hope this clarifies it.
