Hey Product Hunt community! I’m excited to announce my first launch today with the ‘FreshCut’ app! I built FreshCut to help others solve a problem I personally had: “It’s hard to explain a past haircut you’ve gotten to your hairstylist.” I tend to get the same haircut every time, and trying to explain what I want was never easy. I also didn't know what hairstylists actually would find useful. Do I just bring one picture? Perhaps two? So after interviewing many stylists, I built an app that helps you get your ideal haircut every time. With FreshCut, you can save and show your favorite past haircuts to any hairstylist for the perfect re-creation in 3 easy steps: 1. Cut - Go get a haircut. 2. Save - If you like your cut, use the app’s guided process to quickly record your haircut profile. 3. Repeat - Easily present your haircut profile next time you get a haircut from any barber for a perfect, fresh cut. I hope you enjoy it and I’d love to hear any feedback on the app you have so I can keep improving FreshCut! I'm here to answer all of your questions! Thanks! -Kai *Also, big thanks to @_maxdeutsch for his help and hunting FreshCut! You can read more about my journey in building this here: https://medium.com/@kkuroda.read...

@thomgroutars I agree. Take a picture of your favorite cut. Jot some notes in Notes. Done.

@svenvdz Thanks! Let me know if you have any additional feedback or suggestions!
@kai_kuroda Can't use it unfortunately, so my feedback is make an Android version.
@svenvdz Sorry about that Sven :( I'll definitely consider that for the future. Thanks!
Any plans for getting this on Android?

@rodrigo_vasconcelos Hi Rodrigo, as of now, not immediately yet, but if people find enough benefit from the iOS version I'll definitely work on that!
Interesting idea... Maybe would use if I went to the barber, but I cut my own hair because: A) I dont like other people touching me and all up in my face. B) I want the ability to shower immediately after cutting my hair - otherwise it feels like I'm covered in my own hair all day.

@daviswbaer Totally understand! That got me thinking though, how do you (as someone who has the wizardry to cut their own hair) maintain a consistent haircut every time? Do you just eye it in the mirror, or do you have some routine you follow?

@kai_kuroda Well I just use clippers to cut my hair, so that makes things eaiser, but normally I use the "double mirror" technique for the back, and then use the "ask the wife" technique to make sure I don't look terrible :)

@daviswbaer Haha I see! Those seem like definitely some advance techniques. I'll have to try cutting my own hair too sometimes. I'm just too afraid it'll look terrible the first time, but oh well I guess that's part of learning how to cut your own hair...
