A-Text-1 Home < Back Next > Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 The Cost of Beauty I just did something that has left me feeling at once really great and really guilty. I just got my hair done. We’re not talking about a little trim or a little color to wash away those grays. We’re talking about a stylish salon on Madison Avenue with a price tag of basicallyhalf my apartment rent—all for my hair!
A-Text-2 Home < Back Next > Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 But I’ve got to admit, it looks awesome—just like I’ve always thought my hair should look but could never figure out how to describe. The colorist called the color “chocolate with yellow brown touches” which right away sounded perfect, especially with her French accent. Thecut took my nearing-my-waist hairstyle and brought it up to shoulder length.
A-Text-3 Home < Back Next > Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 Now the guilt takes over. It’s not just the cost; it is the fact that I’ve never been the type to think much about my hair, my clothes, my nails or my makeup. Now suddenly, I have to look one more time in the mirror just to watch my hair bounce. Vanity is fitting me like a glove.
A-Text-4 Home < Back Next > Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 To give you a better idea of my usual ways: I don’t own a hairdryer; I very rarely comb or brush my hair; I only wear makeup when the job calls for it; I don’t paint my nails—I only cut them just to keep them short—and I shop forclothes that are 95 percent J. Crew black T-shirts, Levi’s jeans and Nine West shoes.
A-Text-5 Home < Back Next > Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 Now I’m thinking about painting my nails. One of those odd colors by Hard Candy. Maybe something dark with shine. I don’t have time for this! Fashion and beauty take too much time and cost too much money. There are more important things in the world to be thinking about besides how the light is catching the highlights in my hair.
A-Text-6 Home < Back Next > Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 Sitting in the salon was quite an experience. Every woman was blond, rich or famous, and looking fabulous. Everyone looked quickly at everyone else to skillfully detect who actually was famous. All the stylists and assistants wanted to bring me water or tea, then I was flattered by hair washers, assistants, a colorist, a well-known hair specialist, and finally, by a stylist from New Jersey. I was afraid, for fear I’d break something or mess something up. I was a fish out of water.
A-Text-7 < Back Next > Home Reading A Task 2 Text 翻译 声音 But I must admit, even with everything I have to do, keep track of, and worry about, it has been a fun few days to be happy about my hair. Call me superficial, call me vain, call me a fashion victim. I don’t care. Because myhair looks perfect!
Translation-1 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 美丽的代价 我刚做了件让我感到既开心又内疚的事：我把头发做了。我说的可不是简单的修修剪剪或稍稍染一下一些灰白的头发，而是在麦迪逊大街的时尚美容厅里花掉我几乎一半房租的钱 ——就为了做一次头发！
Translation-2 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 可我得承认，头发做得真棒——就是我想像的理想状态却又无法用语言来描述。染发师把染出的颜色称为 “带有几丝淡褐色的巧克力色”，一听就妙极了，特别是从她带有法国口音的嘴里说出来更是如此。我齐腰的长发被剪 去，换成了齐肩的短发。
Translation-3 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 接下来我感到的却是内疚，不仅是因为花了很多钱，还因为我本就不是那种在意自己发型、衣着、指甲或化妆的人。可突然间，我会不自觉地再照照镜子，就为了看一 眼那富有弹性的头发。此刻说我虚荣再合适不过了。
Translation-4 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 让你更好地了解一下平时的我吧：我没有电吹风，很少梳头，只在工作需要时化妆，也不涂指甲——只把它们剪短而已。我买的衣服百分之九十五都是杰克鲁(J. Crew) 黑色 T 恤、李维斯(Levi’s)牛仔裤和玖熙(Nine West) 鞋。
Translation-5 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 可眼下我却在考虑涂指甲油，用哈康迪(Hard Candy)的某种奇特颜色，或某种发亮的深色。可我哪有时间做这些！时尚和美容花费太多时间和金钱。除了考虑如何突出头发光亮靓丽的效果外，世上还有许多更重要的事情需要去思考。
Translation-6 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 坐在美容厅里美发是一种难得的经历。里面的女人要么金发碧眼、要么有钱、要么有名，而且个个光彩照人。每个人都匆匆地打量别人，老练地找出真正的名人。先是发型师和助手们争相为我端茶倒水，然后又有几个洗发师和助手、一个染发师、一个出名的发质专家以及一个来自新泽西的发型师先后过来向我大献殷勤。我真担心自己会打碎点什么东西或把什么事情弄糟。我感到浑身不自在。
Translation-7 < Back Reading A Task 2 Text 但我必须承认，尽管我有很多事要去做、去跟进、去操心，几天来我都很开心，因为我很满意自己的头发。说我肤浅，说我虚荣，说我是时尚的牺牲品，我都不在乎， 因为我的头发看起来好极了！
