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

Cute and great for this summer heat. She’s young and it’s fun and trendy. Not that when it gets cooler she won’t go back to longer,nothing wrong with switching it up and making a change.

So you want a guy that is attracted to little, “boy-short haircuts”? If your guy likes boys…

Does this mean she is “out of the closet”?
It is a very man-like style.

It really is very pretty, this is just a bad photo. Her Facebook page has a beautiful pic.

Emma is a grat actress but the short hair doesn’t suite her

It’s shearing, not sheering.

would look good with any style she chooses. I like the look. Easier to manage and a great look on her. It draws attention to her long neck and beautiful complection. I will always root for Hermione aka (Emma) and think the new look will take her into her next creative endeavor. It breaks the Hermione look and maybe the directors will consider her for other parts out of her other character.
