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

I love it!!! She looks stunning! It really accentuates her gorgeous face!!
Anyone who doesn’t like it obviously doesn’t understand her reasoning. She couldn’t experiment with her hair for the past 10 years, because Hermione’s hair is long and brown. Emma is 20 years old and can finally try something new. Plus, it’s hair and it WILL grow back. I love this short look on her! She’s not the first to do it and she certainly won’t be the last. :D

I’d want to see a few more pictures before deciding. Don’t like it in this one but that doesn’t mean that in a different angle or look it might be appealing. I agree that not many women can pull off the short cut look.

Buh- that was a mistake.

Hate it. Ew.

ADORABLE Emma!!! You have the perfect face to pull this off! I wish I could do it. Don’t read into these haters. You did a fine thing!

I feel like the angle is somewhat bad on the photo and doesn’t represent the cut well. That being said, from this angle she looks like a boy. But, I’m sure it looks good on her, and if she flaunts it, go with it!

So does this make her gay? I love her hair, but as some people have menationed with AJoile’s child getting her hair cut short and implying she is trying to go gay, I am wondering why Emma hasn’t had the question? Or is it okay to pick on a 4 year old?
