what are long layers?

Can someone explain to me what it means when you say you want your hair cut in long layers? I just want to make I have the correct understanding.

my Fotki hair journey/experiment diary PW is brio (and I really need to update it!)

3A hair; coloring with henna/indigo since July 2009; normally follow the CG method. Still searching for my HG products!

I was told by a hairdresser that long layers are when the bottom 3 inches of your hair is layered. They are not up at the top of your head. For example using your hair, the shortest piece would be at your ears. Hope that helps

That's my understanding too. I've also heard it described as layers that start below chin level.

It means there's not much distance between the longest and the shortest layers. Maybe 2 or 3 inches.
