My personal take on pixie cuts:
1.) Pixie cuts never make someone more attractive than they'd be with longer hair. I like longer hair-- it very often makes someone look more feminine in my opinion and nicer.
2.) Pixie cuts, for the large majority of women, make the girl look a lot worse. Longer hair looks a lot better on the majority of em (not necessarily "long," just not nearly pixie-cut-short.)
3.) For a select few women, pixie cuts do nothing to hurt or help them. I would argue this tends to be because their face is already great, so it doesn't particularly matter how long their hair is. The pictures of ones I've seen that still look attractive with pixie cuts already have really great feminine sort of faces to focus on.
So it's really a mix of B and C. All in all though, I've never seen someone who looks more attractive with a pixie cut than longer hair.
Naturally, it's all very personal preferences, but the various guys I've talked with in random dudebro conversations about types and stuff have said similar things like me. It's purely anecdotal, but I suspect the majority of guys are not only-short hair fans.1

Ahhhahah nothing like the topic of short hair to bring out the hysterics from male GAGers...
A few things, in no particular order.
A lot of the dudes here are clearly overreacting -- and many of them probably aren't even being consistent with *themselves*.
What I mean is this:
• Lots of women with hair around shoulder length -- where it's short enough to fall over yr shoulder and get in the way of everything you're trying to do, but long enough to actually GET in the way of everything you're trying to do -- wear ponytails for literally 99.5 percent of their waking hours.
If a woman wears her ponytail high and sort of messy, it's almost indistinguishable from the look of a short haircut. Like this high/messy pony:
... OK. So, all these guys who are flipping their shit about women with short hair... Do they throw just as much of a hissy-fit about women who wear ponytails all the time?
Because if they don't, then their complaints probably aren't so much about the look, and are probably much more about what the look seems to "signify" (in their mind, anyway).
Like one poster here who thinks that short hair "makes you look like a feminist". (Does that even mean anything? The most strident feminazi-types I know ALL have long hair and wear very traditionally feminine clothes.)
If a guy is hating on short hair AND ponytails, then, fine, mb he really does have an aversion to that look in general. But how many people do you know who hate ponytails ahahah.
As many on this thread have pointed out, yr "success" with a shorter haircut is going to depend on yr face.
What NO ONE has pointed out yet -- and what definitely needs to be pointed out -- is that it ALSO depends on yr makeup skills. Might depend on that even more than yr actual facial shape.
In general, women who really *rock* the pixie-cut look tend to wear MUCH more dramatic makeup than women with longer hair.
More importantly... much more dramatic than the makeup they'd wear *themselves* with longer hair.
Like these women:
Notice the high drama of the first two women's smoky eyes, and of Rihanna's blood-red lipstick.
All of these looks might seem pretty try-hard with longer hair -- or they just wouldn't go well with the hair -- but, with short hair, they look devastatingly sexy.
