Always consider your hair texture first, what will it do when hair is cut off, when weight is taken away? Wavy and curly hair types will no doubt bounce up and appear even shorter while straight hair textures may need some special cutting techniques such as chipping, slicing, razor cutting to encourage wispy ends, shag, body, or blunt ends to do the opposite.
The next thing to consider is your face shape, what are you trying to hide or promote?
The rule of thumb is to always aim for the most oval adjustment possible.
