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! it’s summertime so a short cut is needed! it will always grow back! kinda like Julia Roberts in Peter Pan no?

Does not suit her but as long as she likes it that’s all that counts! I loved her with the longer locks.

Not a very good look on her – at least it this shot. She should have just gone for a bob or something – this is a pretty manish haircut – and not many women can carry it off. Luckily it will grow back….

CUTE! She’s a very pretty girl – I’m glad she changed it. Hermione was rather frumpish. It’s young and fresh and suits her. I wish it were a better photo though – the angle’s bad.

Soooo Rich on
