How do I get what I want???

I have a picture, and I have seen the haircut in person. How do I get my stylist to cut it correctly? I prefer it long and don't want to lose my length growing out a bad haircut. image.jpg

So what do I tell my stylist about this cut?

    I don't know what your own cut looks like, so it's going to be a little hard for me to give some sound advice...

    But, what I usually tell my hairdressers (when I go to a new one, that is) is that I've had bad experiences with scissor-happy hairdressers in the past, and that I would prefer to have whatever cut I'm getting to be a little longer than what they envision because of shrinkage. I mostly insist on them cutting off only about an inch of my hair (when pulled down).

    bring that photo.
    good advice about preferring it longer due to shrinkage (better if they can cut it dry).
    here's a great thread that could be of some help. it was started by a stylist:
