Remember the order of the adjectives :

2) shape (ex : straight, curly, wavy, …)
3) colour (ex : blond, red, white, grey, …)



Ex: My best friend has got short straight black hair.
You can also say : My friend’s hair is short, straight and black.




Be careful !
Hair = les cheveux
a  hair = un cheveu ou un poil!
