I have posted this is another thread but I think the photo I used wasn't a fair comparison.
Had my hair cut and really regret it!
Which do you think looks better? Long and dark or light and shorter?

Lighter and shorter is my preference.

Lighter definitely better

Your hair looks shorter in the lighter picture?

I don't think the length makes nicj difference. It looks better lighter tho

Ah sorry that’s what you said!

Lighter and shorter, definitely

I will say lighter too, but lighter and longer.

Lighter and shorter.

Lighter and shorter. The lighter colour is better by miles and miles!

Both lengths are fine. The light hair is a bit too light and the dark needs to look less of a flat colour.

Lighter and shorter, the cut frames your face beautifully and the colour really suits your skin tone.
You could grow it back to the length of the darker cut, but keep the colour and the layers, they're much nicer.

Lighter and shorter - you are stunning in that photo.

The second pic drags you down a bit - I think overly long hair can make people's faces look drawn. If you have very thick curly hair and / or a fuller face then it is easier to pull off longer hair.

But you are very pretty whatever you decide.

Lighter looks nicer imo. Like a PP said, the dark is too much of a block colour.

Lighter and shorter. Light hair suits your skin tone and brings out the colour of your eyes.

Lighter and shorter definitely. Dark doesn’t suit your skin tone.

Remove that second photo OP ..

it shows all your previous and personal snaps lovely..

P.S. you look great blonde 🌸

Both pictures are of you with basically the same hair. The length is really not making a difference. The colour does - the lighter is much better but could be better yet with more texture.

I think you should consider shorter hair than that.

Where's the short pic? You look much better with lighter hair !
