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!
Carolyn Gregoire After Styling Secrets

Spritz a wave spray through wet hair. Try L'Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT It Tousle Waves Spray ($5, drugstores). Rough-dry it with a blow-dryer and your fingers; using a brush will make it look too polished. Then accentuate the layers by applying a pomade or cream, like Garnier Fructis Style De-Constructed Pixie Play Crafting Cream ($6, drugstores), with your fingertips, raking it through the ends for a piecey effect.

Workout-proof it: To keep hair out of your face, as Carolyn does during her daily flow yoga classes, roll your bangs off your forehead and secure them with a bobby pin. Slide on two skinny elastic headbands or try a Goody Athletique Slide-Proof Double Strand headband ($6 for a set of three, Target stores), which is two bands in one, to hold the various lengths of your hair in place during every pose.
