Long, curly bob? is there such a thing?

I've been contemplating a chop - not a huge one - but taking off some length for better balance. I have been looking on line for a pic of a long, curly bob - anyone have any pics or ideas?

    I've never heard of a long bob because they are usually shoulder length or shorter. You could just chop off what you're comfortable with losing and then add some long layers, face framing layers, bangs, or whatever appeals to you to just give it a little something extra.

    Yes, shoulder length would be good, but I cant find any pics of this to visualize for myself. I have had bobs that are chin length or a bit longer, but that is not what i am thinking of..

    Jessi, the link works and its a great cut, but I had in mind something that was longer in the back. I had that angled thing done once years and years ago, of course, I knew nothing about my curls then, but I sure lived to reg regret it. I would like it longer in the back so that I can still put it up, especially if I decide to go gray.

    Geek, Jenifer Lopez's is closest to what I had in mind, although her hair is wavier than mine - mine has more curl. From the looks of it, however, all that is required is that I tell my stylist to lop off a couple on inches on the bottom...

    I love January Jones's hair. It's a shoulder length bob. Although her hair is straight, I think it would suit curly or wavy hair well if shaped correctly (maybe some well placed very long layers).
