Hi Jen,
I voted for long layers, I figured if you've not had them before it would be worth a try & most curlies seem to like them.
Personally a few long layers really pep up my curls, although I know your hair is quite a bit curlier than mine.

Good luck whatever you decide, I know your hair will always look gorgeous!
