To Keep the pixie or not? With pics..

I've name changed for this so I can post pics to help. I've currently got a long grown out pixie cut which I loved when I first had it cut, and I have a hair appointment next week. I just can't decide if I should get it cut back short or grow it, and it's kind of at that pivotal point between the two stages! I can attach pictures of what it looks like longer and when it was first cut if needed for people to give opinions! Please help as I'm rubbish at making a choice on it!

Pics?! grin

Sorry, my phone was being rubbish and won't let me post them. Will try again!

This is it freshly cut in (I have a full face of makeup on as I'm about to go out for dinner I don't always look like this lol)

Just realised the second pic has cropped my hair off. I'm not doing too well at this!!

This is it longer.

It's lovely.

I'd not call that a pixie though. A pixie is much shorter.

WipsGlitter Sat 11-Jul-15 12:45:47

It's nicer shorter.

Have it short again, you have gotovely big eyes and look really striking with the shorter cut

Better longer

Hairnightmare Sat 11-Jul-15 12:58:05

Wipsglitter I was tempted to go a little shorter this time but not sure what style to go for or if my face is able to pull off even shorter If that makes any sense whatsoever!

Shorter it's lovely. I do also like it longer but shorter is just has a bit more impact.

TheRealMaryMillington Sat 11-Jul-15 13:02:40

Keep it shorter - you have the right jawline. Looks rad.

Esmesgirls Sat 11-Jul-15 13:04:08

You're very pretty OP! Lovely big eyes. I'd go for having it shorter.

FenellaFellorick Sat 11-Jul-15 13:06:38

I prefer it longer. It's less harsh. Although it's harder to tell from that angle. Do you have one straight on instead of from above?

brightnearly Sat 11-Jul-15 13:06:58

Pixie! It looks lovely on you!

StrawberrytallCake Sat 11-Jul-15 13:14:33

You look beautiful both ways but shorter your eyes and cheekbones stand out more.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 11-Jul-15 13:16:18

I prefer shorter on you, you look stunning.

BeautifulBatman Sat 11-Jul-15 13:21:04

Shorter is much better. You've got great eyes and bone structure. The longer style puts years on you and looks really mumsy.

OneLittleLady Sat 11-Jul-15 13:22:48

shorter, definitely. you have gorgeous eyes and a great bone structure that's perfect for it being shorter

ObeseDenise Sat 11-Jul-15 13:24:58

Shorter! And I think 99% of the women who post pixies on here would look better with longer hair.

Cracking cleavage btw grin .

DoreenLethal Sat 11-Jul-15 13:27:21

I don't think it matters - you'd look good with a bin bag on your head.

But yes - shorter is fab on you.

chockbic Sat 11-Jul-15 13:27:24

Looks nice either way.

OD grin

SkodaLabia Sat 11-Jul-15 13:29:33

I like the shortest one very much, but I'd like to see what the front looks like on the one where you've helpfully only included your ear and neck. grin

I don't like the cleavage one, it's a bit Natasha Kaplinsky.

Sorry! Photo loading weirdly, I can now see your face on that pic too, but not the fringe area. What's that bit like?
