Emma Watson Loses Her 'Potter' Locks: Love It or Hate It?

08/05/2010 at 12:15 PM ET


Oh boy! Britain’s pint size fashion plate Emma Watson has made her latest style turn—or should we say cut? Following in the recent sheering footsteps of celebs-gone-pixie like Hayden Panettiere and Cate Blanchett, the fashionista was snapped with a boy-short haircut while out and about in N.Y.C.’s West Village earlier this week and confirmed her new do on Twitter and Facebook with accompanying self portrait, telling fans, “Feels incredible. I love it.” With the wrap of the Harry Potter film franchise this past spring, Watson’s made a clear cut from her Hogwarts alter-ego Hermione Granger and her famously bushy locks, but like the onscreen know-it-all, she carefully considered her decision to go short: “I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever.” It’s a look that’s sure to turn heads when the Ivy Leaguer returns for her second year at Brown University in the fall, and we look forward to seeing the style risk taker put her signature mark on the look – on and off campus. Tell us: What do you think of Emma’s new cut?Christie LaRusso

She’s young, cute, and very rich – so why not? We’ve all used this part of our lives to try different looks (as I recall an unfortunate moustache attempt from my college days)

Emma Watson is looking attractive.. so it doesn’t matter what her hair style is..

This is a bad picture/angle. I saw another picture and this cut looked completely adorable and flattering.

Hate it…


I don’t like it at all.
I just plain like long hair.
She’s way to young for that type of cut.
Let it grow Emma let it grow.

longer was more attractive.

She’s so pretty she can pull it off, but why would anyone want an unflattering men’s haircut is beyond me.

Very drastic and I think that is what is making people not like it. If she would have gone to half her length I think it would have gone over better. I personally think it is cute and if she likes it that is all that matters. Takes guts to do such a drastic cut! Good for you Emma!

Sorry, don’t like it, but it’s her hair.

There is a way better picture on OMG on Yahoo. It looks fantastic on her. I tried this look about when I was 14, but with my curly hair, it didn’t turn out as well as Emma’s did with her straight hair. It did take a long time to grow out though, a very long time. Nontheless, adorable Emma!
