Fair warning: I try to keep things curated, so don't post all the photos I get. Good resolution, a clear view of your hair and having a style that is interesting/ different are all super important factors.
Mop Shots A social network of sorts for hair enthusiasts with the tagline "Where did you get your hair did?" Be forewarned: Some of the U.S's largest cities still remain pretty sparsely represented.
Hair On The Brain Blog from an L.A.-based reader. Mostly pictures of celebrities, and not just short haired ones, although there is a "Short Hair" section on the sidebar.
Behind the Chair Hairgasm! Among other things, Behind the Chair showcases the latest hair "Collections" from top salons. About 1/3 of the pics are of short cuts, too, so you won't be short of inspiration next time you make the trek to the salon.

I just donated my hair to Locks of Love… and I’m totally diggin’ the short hair! It’s my first pixie cut and it was halfway down my back before I cut it. Why did I wait so long to do this??
Great work! The cut is absolutely perfect on you. Readers - Notice the slightly shorter cut on the left side. This helps gives some “edge” to an otherwise very feminine, delicate short haircut. The little details are important, and are what can separate a “ho-hum” haircut from something really brilliant like this.
A note from this blog’s author…errrr, photo poster extraordinaire:
I took a picture today to see what the back/side of my hair looked like, and Holy Mother of God, I have hair! I plan to grow it out a bit more, have my hairdresser shape it up a bit and then stop. It’s pretty boring at the moment besides the fact that I HAVE HAIR.
"I’m thinking about cutting my hair short. I don’t know if it looks good on me though. I’ve never tried anything that risky… what if it doesn’t work out right? This is the hair that I want… But I’m totally scared. Help me please!"
Gosh the girl in this pic is adorable! I don’t know if I could pull that off either. But to answer your question, I think the women who look best with short hair are those with more narrow faces, proportionate body types and are generally confident and kick-ass. Beyond that? It’s all about finding a hairstyle that’s complementary to you. Splurge on a good hairstylist who will not just give you a copycat cut to the one above, but will talk you through how to tweak it so that it complements your face and your features.
Also, be sure to check out all the excellent short hair resources I’ve put in the sidebar. Actually, they’ve been there for a few months after I solicited readers for suggestions on cool sites featuring girls with short hair, but I never formally announced them. So, yeah, this is me formally announcing them to each and every one of you: http://girlswithshorthair.tumblr.com/
