namkcuR pretty much said what I was going to. I prefer long hair on women so I voted for option 1. But even shoulder-length or hair like Winona's in that pic are fine... but any shorter than that is too boyish!

However, there are some women who I think look great with short hair. Depends on the person, their facial features, the cut, style etc.
I've had short hair (the same cut as that Winona Ryder picture), and long hair (currently tailbone length). Mid-back length was by far the easiest length to manage for me.

Some women look stunning with short hair, like Audrey Hepburn and Winona Ryder. I guess it helps if you have beautiful, delicate facial features. I look absolutely awful with short hair myself and haven't worn it shorter than shoulder length in years. If I could get away with it I would certainly consider wearing it shorter. Long hair can be miserable in the summer, especially if you have unruly hair that won't stay in a ponytail.

Well it all depends on the women's features.

But I'm a sucker for a girl who can pull off short hair...

i'm thirding, etc. everyone else has said that girls who can pull off short hair is

me personally? my hair's usually never shorter than around my shoulders. i keep trying to grow it back longer (four years ago it was about halfway down my back) again but i lose patience and chop it shorter again.

i do remember the whole reason i cut it shorter in the first place was because having it that long gave me constant knots in my hair. so next time i went in to get my hair dyed i asked my stylist what she suggested and we chopped like 6-8" off my hair that day

Hairstyle is a personal thing...women wear their hairstyle whichever way makes them feel best about their self image, or however their SO likes it (to please them). Personally I like longer but I have also had short hair. I like the option of pulling it back or up.

Mr BAW looks lovely in short curly hair and I especially love the Vertigo cap

I love the short hairstyle MissVelvetDress and Vervex described.

I have changed my hair in the past year so much it's been ridiculous. My roomies went to beauty it's been long and brown, short with normal highlights, longer with blonde and red, extensions with blonde, shorter with blond highlights and now midlength all blonde with rockstar shaggy layers and a fringe.

Oh yes, one thing that I apply as a universal law when critiquing hair (yes, I can see the s now, but nevertheless.....)

... is that natural has the upperhand. You don't need to color it every which color, or extensions, or this or that or everything else. I know some women who feel they need to curl and twist and do everything under the sun to their hair, and, while I respect their effort and stuff, so many times I feel it looks better the less she does to it. This applies to makeup, too.

I have nothing against wanting to dress up special for an extra special occasion, but for more general purposes, i tend to believe less is best.

PS: though I understand that sometimes even an appearance of 'not doing much to one's hair' can often take a lot of work, so ......

about two years ago I had really long hair, past my waist - and had it blonde. I had been keeping it long, like to the middle of my back. Then I decided to grow it out and donate it after my wedding. I thought that I would never look good with short hair. I cut about 16inches off, so that it was just sitting at my collar, and stripped the blonde out so that I was red again. I loved it like that, and so did my husband. Now I'm starting to think that I may grow it out a bit again. I always still layer it etc though to give it some style. And I have wispy bangs. Trust me, the bangs look better.

I have always had long hair and I personally hate short hair. I also hate it on men. That is just my personal taste. What everyone else does with their hair is their own business.
