Any wavies/curlies find that a cut with NO layers (or just some face framing ones) works better for you?

Mine is wavy, medium to coarse, and very dense (2a/b?). My hair is around shoulder length and i currently have long layers throughout and I think it may be giving me too much volume. My hair looks a bit like a lions mane (volume wise). I'm wondering if going one length would help?

Thoughts?
2A/B. Mix of fine, medium, and coarse (mostly medium). Dense. Mix of normal and high porosity.
Dry climate.
