I'm really thinking about getting a haircut next week. I saw this cut I really liked on another post and I found a few others. I was just wondering do you think these cuts could work for my hair without winding up with an poofy afro. Would layering help to achieve these cuts? I don't want to get a razor cut or use thinning shears to much damage.

This is my hair currently:
