Long or short hair? PICS :)

Hello! I don't post things very much on this forum, but I was hoping that you guys could give me your opinions on if I should cut my hair or not. I have 3a hair. It is pretty fine. It is going through a bit of a traumatic experience because of the cold weather change... it does this every year. Anyway, please just let me know if you think I look better with long hair or short hair. Also, take into consideration that I do not have product in my hair in the first pics, and in the second pics I do. I am not going to grow it out any longer because my curls get more and more difficult to manage as my hair gets longer.

Please ignore the frizziness and my crazy bangs... haha. I did not put product in in these first pics.

Now (medium-long):

Thanks soooo much, guys!

    I think short hair looks better. Your curls have less weight so they'll be more prominent and girl your face is gorgeous let the world see it

    I actually agree as well, short hair really looks beautiful. Makes you stand out and shows off your face.

    I think your hair looks best when It's above your shoulders XD the curls are so pretty too! XD
    3C/4A mix (Seriously it's all over the place)
    Hair is kinda fine and kinda thick.
    Super short, I'd like definition but styling products don't like me
