Literally translated “tomar el pelo” means ‘to take the hair’. This expression is often used when people are joking around with each other. If you believe someone is trying to fool you or trick you in a funny way you would say ‘Me estás tomando el pelo’. It is similar to the english expression “pulling my/your leg” or “you’re joking right?”. So if a friend tells you he won €10 million, you might use this expression.
