Are layers a no-go?

My hair is 3A, just past shoulder length and is fairly thick, but it has no shape. From the front I look like a giant lower case 'n' and really want a nicer shape so I can wear my hair down without looking like a letter!I've read before that curlies should keep away from layers, but surely that's the only way to get shape?Should I ask the stylist for something else?

Layers are fine, as long as you keep them somewhat long. I have layers and have no issues with it being poofy or crazy.
You should consider different things and find out where the layers look best for your face type! Good luck!
