    have / get...

    Hi...

    Is there something different between " have + object + past pariciple & get + object + past participle " ?


    Best regards...

    Well, there doesn't seem to be a difference between 1) and 2) below. Both are grammatical--for North American speakers.

    1) I'm going to have my hair done.
    2) I'm going to get my hair done.

    The same is true for BrE speakers. 'Get' is said to be more colloquial. There are a few examples where only one collocates. I can't remember any examples off-hand, but will try to think of some.
