Grow out? Cut? Bangs? Ahhhh!

I am due for another trim, and I have an appointment on Thursday. One thing I'm always stuck on ... is bangs. In all my 21 years, I've had bangs. But I've also never actually let my hair be curly. When I was a kid, my bangs were straight and as a teen I straightened them. So now that I'm letting my hair be curly, I have these random squiggly things going halfway down my face and I'm not sure what to do with them.

Ideally, I want to grow my hair out as long as I can before I get sick of it. I just want to see how long I can let it go before I decide I need to chop it off(I haven't had super long hair, or anything past my shoulders really, since I was 14). But I feel like when it's long, It's just... long... and sort of boring looking. the top half of my head goes flat(Cause I can never get this clipping thing right, and I don't have time to play with a diffuser every morning). But I've never had shorter... naturally curly hair, so I'm almost afraid to cut any length off, LOL.

I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I'm open to listening to ANY suggestions anyone might have. I'm mostly puzzled about what to do with my bangs, but I'm open to suggestions on a hair style or something like that too if someone things long hair looks kind of dumb on me(wont hurt my feelings I swear! LOL).

(Pretend my hair isn't like, half-blue here. Long story... )





Thanks for any ideas, guys. <3

I'm in about the same predicament. I've blow dried and straightened my hair for about 20 years and always had bangs. I just don't think I look right without them. I'm in the process of growing them out, wet and pulled straight they're down to my chin, but dried naturally they are right below my eyes, which is aggravating. I'm trying my best to fight the urge to cut them, but I'm going to really mad if I let them grow all the way out, and they still won't hang right. Right now I pull them back with a tiny claw clip.
