YES, from 20 years of haircutting experience I can declare this to be true. Now what is important is the way short haircuts are planned around particular face shapes, always taking into account a person’s hair type and then other physical and personal attributes.
For example, people that have oblong (longer face shapes) should try to minimise any height on top that will add more vertical length. However bangs (fringes) help to halve the vertical length, as do side parts that make long faces appear less narrow.

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.
