I was on line by coincidence when your update flashed. So, the perfect haircut?
For me, short. In fact it's as short as she wants to buzz it, when she wants to buzz my head. For her, it's the short pixie, especially if I get to do the honors. Many women wear pixie styles for the convenience. Some do it for a hideen reason that becomes obvious in bed.
I love red hair! My natural highlights are reddish. I also tend to dye it red a lot. I think it's my Irish blood. :D I share your love. I love the little redheaded kids too. They are so cute. I wish my future kids would have red hair. :)
My favorite cut is the one my wife just got on Saturday!! She knows of my interest and preferences. She got a sharp a-line bob that is buzzed with a #2 in the back and slopes to the front so it just covers her earlobes. The stylist cut it with an arch in the back instead of stacking. I feel so lucky that my wife really likes a daring haircut that happens to be my ultimate favorite. My favorite cut to get on myself would be a flat top but I have never had the courage to ask for one. It probably wouldn't suit my hair type anyway.
My idea of a perfect haircut is no certain kind of hairstyle, though I do like short hair a lot(mainly because it looks like crap on me). The perfect haircut to me is anything that makes you feel more beautiful in your own skin and comfortable with your looks. A haircut has such ability to raise your self-esteem and if it does that, it's priceless. Liking what you see in the mirror is my idea of perfection. :)
