A: Lisa, with only the one picture of you, it is hard to give a finite opinion. 

My first impression is that your hair has to be moved off your face. I think your long locks are enviable and see no reason to cut them shorter.

I think that changing the colour, on the other hand, would be worthwhile dropping a few dollars for. 

I am really excited about this colour for you:

The the darker, deeper tones will offset the lighter tones and will frame your face beautifully.

The cut I feel best for you is a long, layered look that could be worn a couple ways:

Please pay attention to the part on a diagonal and then straight back. This is is a great high forehead parting that tricks the eye.

I am sure that you would like a view of a shorter 'do just for variety and curiosity. Here it is casual...
