This might require cutting off more than you intend, but I think it would suit your face shape.

Alternatively, this would allow you to keep the length, and it would frame your face quite nicely. Just look at the hair style and try to ignore the model’s collagen-addled lips.

This is a more realistic variation of it, and with a shorter bang.

You have the length for a lot of layers. Find some pictures you like and show them to your stylist.

Seriously, I think your hair looks perfect as is, I wouldn’t cut it other than a trim. It looks like you have fine hair, so I don’t think layers will suit. If I had your hair I would just play around with curling waves and straightening it for a new look. Many women that regret their layers would kill to have hair all the same length. 

If anything, you could ask the hairdressor to feather your hair down the sides at the front for a bit of movement. I have long blonde hair and that is all I get done. You will end up with a bit of layering at the front like this: 

And you can put some curl and wave into your hair like this:

Sorry for the huge photos!

@LeonardLady:  Ask for long layers with a few layers in the front that are chin-length to accentuate your face.  Don’t do full-on bangs unless you’re willing to style them regularly.

I’d just have some layers cut in. I have finer hair and it really adds volume and shape to my hair.

Most of my pins are for longer hair but here are a few:

@LeonardLady:  It’s called face-frame layers. I get that style all the time! I love it 🙂

I agree with @beachbride1216:  and @Westwood: I think you should go for long layers! It really does help to add volume and shape!! My long layers are in a soft V shape. The shape it gives is amazing because I really don’t have to do anything with my hair for it to look good. I like the shortest layer to be an inch or two below my chin. I have an oval face (it looks like you do too?) and the layers help to slim down my face sooo much. It’s super flattering.
