12 Simple Everyday Hairstyles
A great short haircut is wash and go,” says Sarah Potempa, a stylist in New York City who created the looks in this story. It’s also easy to care for and surprisingly versatile. Use a gentle shampoo as needed (short hairstyles can handle daily washing, especially if you have an oily scalp). Follow up with a light conditioner―anything too moisturizing will flatten hair. A few days a week, spritz on a light leave-in conditioner and let hair air-dry to keep it healthy. Limit heat styling to two or three times a week, and keep sessions brief.
