Question HELP! How can I get a decent hair cut?

I have very thick, auburn, variable texture (fine to coarse, if you can believe it), somewhat dry, wavy to curly hair which I wear fairly long, as it grows quickly.
For years, I just let anyone cut my hair (trim off the bottom) and it always looked great with little work involved in upkeep. My current stylist (last 6 years) is a good friend and great at some hair cuts, but I have discovered that she has no idea how to cut my hair. Because my hair is thick, she is constantly "texturizing" as well as layering it, which I finally figured out is thinning it from the bottom up. This destroys my normal curl patterns, which range from long, ropey sausage curls to s waves. Now, I'm pretty low-key and don't get too uptight about my hair, but over the time she has cut it, my hair has gone from easy peasy to totally unmanageable -- it doesn't fall into predictable curl patterns, it won't go straight, and even in my dry climate, it has a tendency to frizz. My hair is still quite long (below my bra line) and is growing out from all of these awful cuts (3-4 cuts a year). What type of fairly longish cut can I get to recover my normal hair and curl patterns? I am tired of cuts that completely work against my hair!

This thread should be helpful:

What Should I Tell My Stylist?

This is, unfortunately, a common issue for curlies. I'm no expert but I think you may have to cut off (blunt cut that is) those straggly ends to fix them. I'm growing some of those out right now, too. I feel your pain. Years of razored hair

I never knew a simple hair cut could so screw up a person's hair type! Why do stylists thin everyone out these days and try to straighten their hair? My hair looks fine to someone who didn't know me before my friend started cutting my hair, but compared to how it used to be, it looks like crap!

I know, right? The funny thing is, when you ask a stylist if they can cut curly hair they are all going to say yes. They'll just wet it and cut it the same way they do straight hair. It sucks but I had to find a new stylist when I went curly. We were friends and all but now I just avoid her and I feel awful.
