You have such pretty eyes. I think the shorter cut draws attention to the sparkle in them where the longer draws the eye away.

Having said that...I love long hair...so, do what feels best.

You're young and beautiful...the choice is really yours.

I like the general shape of the longer cut better on you with the shorter length? Does that make any sense at all? I find your bangs/fringe a little too heavy for you. I like the hair off your face a bit more.

I think when you have a rounder face (I know I have one too) it's a bit harder. I find that the short draws attention to your eyes, but the longer flatters your face shape more.

In general I don't think your hair should cut off at the largest part of your face. For some of us that is our cheeks, others it is a slight double chin, and for some it is at both places. So whether you go short or long, I would make sure that you don't have any layers (or bangs) hitting right at your cheeks. I have a face shape similar to yours, with big cheeks and if I have layers at my cheeks it makes my face look big. Same with the overall length of your hair. If you like it best short, I think it would look best if it was just below your chin. Neither of your haircuts looks bad, so now it is just mostly personal preference and then tweaking it a bit to suit your face!

^^ My hair at the moment is in between both these!

It doesnt cut off at my cheeks though? but does at my chin - also depends on what style i wear it in and what way i straighten it!

Thanks for your opinions though :)

I have bought some extensions to see if I could get used to long hair again!

Fingers crossed!

Love the cut in the second picture!!! I think hooray has good advice though. The short haircut is cute, maybe go for in between and add just like 2 inches? Long vs. short hair is hard! i have long hair now, but had hair even shorter than yours for awhile. My hair dresser wanted me to go short again, but I was like, helllll to the no. For me, short hair is way harder to style (I live in a very humid climate and my hair is fine and gets out of control. Longer hair weights it down and makes it more manageable!)

The length of the second picture, but without the bangs.. I think that would look great on you!

I like the longer. It suits you quite well. But I don't think you should go too much longer than the 2nd picture, because that style suits you quite well, and any longer might not look as good. You just need to find the exact right length for you...not too long, not too short. :)
