I'd go with 85 or longer. As others point out, this comes down to personal preference and style, but I like 135 for headshots, and 85 as a more general portrait lens. I also have a 105, but end up using 85 or 135 most of the time. If you're still unsure about whether 50 would be best for you, try it on your kit lens at 50 and 85, and see which you like best.
