should i put long layers in my hair?

okay so i have like 3a/3b hair.
right now it's cut to all one length. When it dries, it has an awkward texture to it, it's like a really tight curl at the top, then soft waves in the middle, then big curls at the bottom. It's really not a pretty look. And it sticks out a lot when it dries. If I cut layers into it, will it make my curls more defined but make it lay down a little bit ?
If not, which type of haircut will make my hair lay down but still defined ? I would love my hair to look like this -

thankyou
(if you had before and after photos of your hair with and without layers that would be amazing too )

How much hair do you have? Is if thin, normal, or thick?

I look terrible in long layers. When my hair has long layers, the straighter strands stick out in a really unflattering way. I have a little bit of layering, but long layers are too much. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that my hair is fine and thin--the last thing I need is to de-bulk my hair at the bottom.

However, if you find that you have a lot of hair, long layers may work for you. It really depends on your hair's properties.
2b/cFi, low density, normal porosity, high elasticity

Low-poo
: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle
Conditioner
: Suave Naturals (whatever scent I have on hand)
Styling
: Paul Mitchell Round Trip, Tresemme Climate Control Finishing Spray

I'm a hair minimalist: the less time I spend on my hair, the better.

okay well my hair is definitely not thick, it's more in the middle but I just have soo much hair.
Could you post pictures of your hair? It would help.

I always have my hair in layers to make the curl fall nicely and stop it getting weighed down and looking like a triangle.
im sorry i dont have any pictures of my hair curly because all of them are straight that are recent.
I NEED layers. I have a ton of hair, and while I dont think I have 'long' layers, I have a lot throughout my cut. Layers provide the shape to the haircut, my hair would be far to heavy without layers.
A picture of your hair would really help in this situation.
