I gotta change things up, help please

Hi all. I've been a lurker for years, but now I need to ask for some opinions.
I like my curls. For the first 29 years of my life I mostly wore them around shoulder length, with bangs that varied in length from eyebrow to ear length. For most of that time I straightened the bangs, at least a bit.
Along with many other life changes in the last year, I decided to grow out my bangs. I didn't want the contrast of straight bangs and curly hair, I really tried to blend them so it wasn't a huge peggy bundy hairdo lol, but it just wasn't working for me anymore. And short curly bangs with a higher forehead didn't work for me either. I also started growing the whole length, and it's about bra length now.
Really, it's just time for a change. I do not want to colour, my hair is a nice auburn that I like. I sometimes do put temporary red to spice it up a bit but have recently decided to stop that. My hair is pretty soft and healthy. I know I don't want a really short cut, and I know I do want to play up the curl.
I have a great stylist, but I need to come up with some ideas of what I want her to do.
I want to change it up a bit. Right now with longer bangs and longer hair, it's too much and my hair is taking over me. Any ideas? The picture is from within the last month, but it's definetly my hair at it's best.
Thanks you!

Do you have any bigger photos? The background on that one is so dark I can't really see your hair.

I hope that helps a bit.
I am not technologically capable lol.
If you feel like your hair is overwhelming you, maybe just take it up closer to shoulder length and get more layering put in. That is a safe route to go if you aren't looking for a drastic change.

Maybe that kind of layering?
