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

It looks very attractive on her. She needed a different look after Harry Potter and I think she
made the wise choice. I’m jealous-I used to be able to wear short hair and look good-now I can’t.
Hair grows back. Why not go for it??

I love her new hair cut. it looks good on her

Wow.. I don’t like this cut on her at all. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of short hair styles I LOVE, but this cut on her looks like Mary Martin’s in Peter Pan. I agree with the comment that only Halle Berry can pull this style off. Here’s hoping her hair grows fast…..

It’s cute. I mean I wouldn’t wear it, but I really think she can sport it. If she likes it, that is all that matters, right?

Anna on

No. That’s all, just…NO.

There is a MUCH better picture of her a la Twiggy on TMZ. Looks totally adorable!

I love it and hate it at the same time, maybe I just need to warm up to it, and its a paparazzi shot too, I bet she looks better when she is all cleaned up,
But thats my opinion (:
