The Best Short Haircuts and Hairstyles

Short haircuts can be intimidating, especially when it also means parting with your go-to gym ponytail. We asked Jen Atkin, a celebrity stylist for Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy, to transform three FITNESS readers and prove that short haircuts can look just as amazing as long locks but with a lot less fuss. Get inspired to switch up your style!
Victoria Phillips After Styling Secrets

Get added lift by applying a spray, such as It's a 10 Miracle Blowdry Volumizer ($19, ulta.com), to damp roots and blow-drying with a medium-size round brush. Try Aquage Medium Round Brush ($20, aquage.com for salons). Smooth over your hair with a flatiron, like the Revlon Laser Brilliance Straightener ($30, Ulta stores), from midlength to ends. This will give you a sleek look while still maintaining volume at the root. Apply a dab of conditioning oil to your ends. We love Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil ($48, oribe.com).

Workout-proof it: Victoria's fave sweat session is kettlebell kickboxing. For knockout style, twist back the front pieces of your hair and secure them with a barrette on each side. Victoria's old hair ties were too thick, so she swapped them out for thin elastic ones to pull it all back.
