Default Need some real life pictures of medium length curly styles/cuts!

I'm looking online for pictures to bring to my stylist for Saturday. Currently my hair is 3a/2cish and below my shoulders. I want to cut some length and add layers, but I don't want to rely on celebrity "curly" hair pictures! I really am liking the bottom two pictures here - Celebrity Short Messy Curly Hairstyles Of 2011 ~ Fashion Hairstyles but I know that michelle pfeifer doesn't have curly hair naturally! I'd like something around those two lengths or a little longer but would love to see pictures of real life natural hair.

Anyone have any pictures to share?

I'm doing the Curly Girl Method / I think this would be great on my hair! @Bridget Gratton
This one is good for looser curls. you could do it in longer version.

I'm doing the Curly Girl Method / layers are great.
THis is my all tim favorite cut. My goal. I Need some layers.

Getting a specific style is really tricky w/our hair due to variance in pattern, density....I've found a great stylist, although not Deva-trained, is sympathetic to curlies (which is half the battle) and LISTENS. She understands that importance of "soft" layers, scissors cutting only, and is happy to use the products I bring with.

Mine may be a bit short for you. It was originally a stacked angled curly bob. It's grown out now. It's collarbone length & has lost some of its original angle but this is a good example pic of how it's layered.

ETA - my hair is fine & thin
