Which suits me best: short hair or long hair? Reference pictures included. Opinions pretty please! :)

For as long as I can remember, my hair has always nearly touched my bum in length. I was never able to cut it short growing up because of my father's deeply enveloped Cherokee Indian customs. But recently, I decided to hack it all off because I was tired of being able to wear my hair as a scarf, haha. It's a weird change having hair that now just barely reaches my shoulders from hair that was as long as a horses tail. I'm just not totally sure if I love the new haircut yet. What do you guys think? Should I grow it back out long again or should I keep it cut this length? Thank you for your advice and opinions, it is much appreciated :)

*Sorry for all the picture links. I know it's tedious to click them all. There are also pictures in my profile if you don't feel like clicking individually.

    • Thank you so much that is very kind of you to say :) I guess this new hairstyle will just take a little getting used to.

  • Man, this is a hard one for me. You look SUPER adorable both ways and I'm really torn between long hair and short hair. A lot of girls can't pull off short hair but apparently you can, and you do it REALLY well too. I think for me, short hair wins out by a hair. Hahahaha! I know, I know! Really BAD and cheesy pun.

  • Stick with the short hair; though YOU'D even look good with no hair at all.

  • I think you look spunky and more adventurous with short hair and classy, more professional with long hair. You pull both off really well, so it depends on what style you want to have. If you're going to keep the short hair I'd suggest getting highlights. Just a shade or two lighter than your natural hair, not bleach blond.

  • I think either one really. You have that look and the hairstyle to match pulling off the "different, short haired" look. I think you look really good with the short hair like you have it. It all just depends on which one you like better. Also, what type of clothes do you wear? If you dress differently, or at least uniquely, then the short hair will fit that look even more.

    • I'm an art student so I suppose I have a different taste in clothing from most people, haha. I think I was hoping for a more alternative hairstyle or just something completely opposite from what I've always had. Thank you for the compliment :)

  • Though you look gorgeous both ways, I've always had a thing for girls with short hair. =D

    • Thank you for the compliment :) I posted one other photo in the update. It shows a back angle. Unfortunately I don't have any great shots of my hair. I probably should have taken better ones =/

  • Id usually say long because I love long her on girls, but you actually look really cute with short so Ill go with short :P

  • u look gorgeous with both :) seriously you are really pretty.

    Personally I like the longer one because I like long hair. But you can seriously pull off the shorter one it makes you look mature and classy :) your just super pretty and I love your hair, you made a good choice.

    • Thank you so much! :) I appreciate it a lot. You are also super pretty! :)

  • Wow, first of all I'd like to say you are really pretty! I think the short hair looks really good! (especially the 2nd link!) but I also LOVEEEE the long hair. Honestly, you can pull both off really well! For now, stick with the short hair, it seems to fit your personality/look better (artsy, unique) :)

  • mid length hair (to your collarbone) is the universal best length for girls
