PS: Hair Cut a la Jessica Alba

PS: I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow morning!  Yay!  Guess it's not really so much of a "cut" as a trim since I'm trying to grow my hair out, but I'm getting layers put back in it.  I had a bad experience with layers a few years ago where the stylist kept cutting the top layer shorter and let the longer layers kept getting longer and longer and it just started looking really bizarre!  So, after losing touch w/ the other stylist, I found a new one who cut layers in the middle section of my, underneath the top layer so you couldn't actually see the layers.

Anywho, my hair is just too thick to make that look work when my hair is straight, so and I'm starting to trust this stylist, so I think I'm ready to get some layers back. I'm going for something long and layered with some long bangs, kinda like Jessica Alba's hair:

Wish me luck!

***UPDATE - Hair Cut Photo***
So, I realized later that I forgot to mention that my hair is actually no where near as long as J Alba's in this photo, but the above photo is more like where I'd like my hair to be when it's long enough. Here's what it actually looks like after my hair cut:

I think it turned out pretty nice, but it will be interesting to see how the layers work when I'm trying to style my hair on my own. Now is when I'll really need that

Jessica Alba's hair there is really nice, I wonder how long it takes to get it looking like that!!
Oh there is nothing worse than a bad haircut, I remember once when I was a kid the hairdresser cut my fringe HORRIBLY right before I was supposed to be going out with friends :(
I looked like Courtney Cox in Scream 3!!!

I'm sure her hair takes longer to style than I have And the poor thing, Penny! I bet you get really nervous when you get your bangs cut, huh?

Your hair looks great!

I'm growing it out myself, untill it's long enough for straight bangs and long locks.

Thanks Catlin!

Good luck growing your hair out - it always seems to take so long! I end up having to talk myself out of cutting it shorter every time I get a
