kcurls, when my hair gets 2 long it also seems 2 thin out. i got a haircut last summer and asked for long layers with some shorter ones on top (comparable to what shellynot has), and i walked out with a mullet. it was awful. if u are thinking about layers i would say to ask for long layers, just 2 b safe. i spent 2 months tying my hair back until it grew out.
